In a sprawling manor in the town of Mayflower Falls, the Dread family is hosting their yearly Thanksgiving dinner for their neighbors. The Dreads plan to serve delectable food catered from none other than Dread Steakhouse. To pass the time until the feast is ready, the guests will catch up on the latest neighborhood gossip and play hilarious party games.
Alas, the last year has been filled with treachery, scandal, and deceit. Many of the neighbors may not get along. The Dreads hope everyone can exist in harmony – at least until dessert hits the table. You have received your invitation to the dinner. This is where your story begins.

Crazy happy with the entire murder mystery! The whole family dressed their part and embraced their characters. Loved that everything was included from instructions to bonus games and menu ideas.
We turned a birthday celebration into a murder mystery and had a lot of fun. Only two out of eight participants had prior experience, but it worked very smoothly.
Really perfect game for all ages that made our thanksgiving day a lot more fun. Everyone got involved, the optional clue round was extra great when the little kids found the clues all over the house. Highly recommend!
This was a big hit with my family on Thanksgiving! They understood their character and played it hilariously, and some members kept talking about it after we played!
Hosting thanksgiving again, this year 16 people. Three families need a plan - this is it! This was our first mystery and I can only say that everyone had a great time.
