Murder Mystery Synopsis:
The superheroes of the Justice Confederation received their summons to the Annual Superhero Assembly with the primary discussion topic on the agenda of how to apprehend the notorious villain - Da Bomb. The Justice Confederation heroes were well aware that Da Bomb was assembling an army of robotic bombs to take over the world and had to devise a clever strategy to stop Da Bomb - and fast!
Everyone arrived safely as planned in a secret cave inside of Mount Super and the critical meeting convened. Before getting down to important business, the superheroes enjoyed appetizers and fun party games while mingling and catching up with their fellow superheroes. After some of the business on the agenda was deliberated, a scrumptious dinner was served. Then, to everyone’s horror, a fellow hero suddenly collapsed to the floor...dead!
The superheroes joined forces to figure out whodunit, as there’s nothing more dangerous than a traitorous superhero! After deciphering a code, uncovering motives, and figuring out the locations of everyone during the murder, the investigative heroes turned in their best guesses of whodunit before taking a break to play more fun party games. Then, over a delicious dessert, the super group took turns explaining their involvement, if any, with the murder. Everyone was shocked when the murderer confessed! The heroes capped off the meeting with more food and fun. Overall, the assembly was a great success as the location of Da Bomb was uncovered and the Justice Confederation immediately went to his hideout, apprehended him and saved the world. At least for now.

We had a great time hosting a social distancing birthday party in our backyard for my daughter’s 14th birthday with the super hero murder mystery game. The game was appropriately hard for 14 year olds, 4 girls guessed it correctly and 6 were wrong which I thought was pretty good. It was a hit!
I have hosted over a half dozen murder mystery parties, but I really enjoy the setup of the one I purchased on this website! All the characters could be played by anyone attending the party, which is extremely helpful when friends cancel late and you need to replace them. They’re are always extra roles not necessarily needed for the storyline, but they still can add interesting elements to the game. There are plenty of extras added for an entire night of fun, including some pre party dialogues and more games to play for the duration of the night. These are completely optional, but can enhance the overall event.
I purchased this particular game because it fit the age range and amount of players need to play. The superhero theme would not have been my first pick for a group of 11 to 12 year old girls. I pulled off the game in just 24 hours after I purchased it. If I had more time I would have done more with props and costumes, advance info to the players etc. However, none of that mattered! The girls loved the game and got right into character and stayed in character for the whole evening. This was a big hit and the girls would like to do a more elaborate murder mystery game some time soon. The content was appropriate for the age. The directions, though lengthy, were well laid out and easy for me to organize the evening before the game. We had one guest not able to make it so I had to play mommy host and one of the essential characters. This worked out just fine. The optional characters were helpful so the 6 year old in the house could be part of the game. He had envelopes to open with the big kids and loved his superhero alter ego. I will use this site again.
My 12 year old daughter had 21 of her best friends, girls and boys, come and have a fantastic time. I wasn't sure everyone would be into it, but when I saw the crazy, elaborate or more subtle but well planned costumes, it was clear they were all in. We planned for 3 hours and finished in 2.5 without any extra games or activities except for dinner. One thing I would recommend is for the Round 3 envelopes to not be all distributed at once. Only the 1st reader gets an envelope and when the 1st reader is done, s/he announces who reads next and at that time the next envelope is handed over. I think it keeps the surprise under wraps a little longer. Anyway, all the kids had a blast!
We wanted a fun interactive birthday party where tween girls from dance, softball, and family could interact and not be awkward. This fit the bill. The guests were so involved in the details they didn't have time to shy away. We played 2 additional mini-games. I used Kahoot to project the supherhero trivia. I also created bingo cards based on my kid to allow the younger siblings to play along since they weren't assigned characters. The beauty of this type of party is it can be as grand as you like (go crazy with decor and food) or simple (scale back and save money). Use your imagination and create an original party for your event. My one friend already purchased a Halloween script. I recommend this party - especially is you love themes and games. The only problem is you will be asked to host more parties!
Definitely do the pre-dinner party round, it creates a buzz before the party! It was so much fun, because everyone started an excited anticipation for the party. My only suggestion is if you are going to cook a meal, make it super easy especially if you are hosting and in character. I missed some of the fun because I was fussing in the kitchen. We decorated one of our rooms where most of the action took place and this also helped everyone stay in character. Overall a sensational fun night! Carolyn
We are not using your dinner play until October 29, 2016. But we expect it to be a huge success.
