Bloodworth Falls is an isolated town plagued with scandals. The townsfolk bicker in the streets, and many believe the local government is corrupt. Nevertheless, the mayor is hosting a mysterious masquerade ball in the old Ravenwood Castle. The tickets to the event have sold out in record time. The townspeople are curious to find out why the mayor would put effort into doing something positive in this hopeless town of gloom. Anticipation for the event hangs thickly in the air, and many are already hunting for the perfect mask. You are worried what will happen on this night when toxic people come together. You are alarmed, as you didn't purchase your ticket - it was placed in your mailbox in an unmarked envelope. Somebody wants you there, but you don't know why. This is where your story begins.

We invited fourteen guests to our event - many of which we hardly knew, as we are new to the area. We didn't know what to expect as we have never been or hosted this type of event. Everything went smoothly and people just had a blast. All the suggestions were for organizing and prepping the event were reasonable and easy to do. I do believe this will become a yearly event.

Loved the Ravenwood Masquerade Murder Party Kit! I did this for my 30th Birthday Party, and it was a fabulous way to ring in a new decade. Most of the attendees had never done a murder mystery before, and it was fun and easy to follow along with all the clues and trying to figure out whodunit. I was a little nervous about how “clean” this kit would be (ie...regarding lust/affairs as causes for murder/motives), and I did note that it was in the teen category so I was hoping those things would not be an issue. It was a great storyline and filled with suspense for all of us without having to involve those stipulations. I highly recommend this version for youth groups and adults alike! The Ravenwood bundle was a wonderful success for my adult friends, and I look forward to using more mystery parties for future events! :) Savannah on Aug 24th 2019
My young adult daughters hosted their first murder mystery party and played The Raven Masquerade Murder. Everyone had so much! We went all out with the food and decor. Like others shared in their reviews, people asked my daughters when they were hosting their next party. They have hosted three more: Murder at the Grand Gatsby, The East Side Story, and Panic at the Disco, and are already planning our next one for October. My daughters didn't start incorporating the bonus games until their third party (which their guests enjoyed immensely), so I encourage you to play them! MMP's Biggest Fans on Aug 16th 2019
I spent hours prepping for this party and it was worth every penny and second I put in!! All of my friends had a blast and stayed in character the whole time! It was honestly the best birthday party I have ever had!
My only concern: 1. There was a lot to story line and character stories. We were running out of time and I was still finding things out about my own character after the game ended.
This was seriously so fun! It was a great theme, and I highly suggest it! I will absolutely be buying many more of these murder mystery parties! Rachel on Aug 12th 2019
