Murder Mystery Synopsis:

Oakley Starr is hosting a scary movie night for a group of close friends. Oakley has acquired an advanced copy of the scariest movie of the year, Emoji Man, and is promising an exciting night of scares, tasty popcorn, and hilarious party games. Even though some of the invited guests are opposed to watching the film, Oakley remains firm that the scary movie will be played at the party! Let’s hope everyone minds their manners and doesn’t try to stop Oakley from pushing play on the remote control.

You’ve been invited to Oakley’s home for a night of terrifying thrills and fun. This is where your story begins.

    A Mystery Game that the Whole Family Can Enjoy

    Posted by Vicki Crist on Oct 18th 2020

    I am so excited to play this game. We have already started with the invites and the pre-game phone calls. I have never been able to find a mystery game that every age can be involved in. This one is so perfect. With the addition of the games to be played in between each act, the youngest to the oldest can be involved and love it! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this Halloween party the most memorable.
