Mystery Synopsis: 

Every Thanksgiving, the Cranberry and Peaknuckle families gather at the Cranberry home in Pilgrim City – a beautiful town in the Midwest known for autumn celebrations and festivities. Chef Mo, a famous chef who delves into molecular gastronomy, has again agreed to prepare the Thanksgiving feast. Chef Mo promises to use innovative techniques this year, and the family is beyond excited. Morgan Cranberry has amazing party games planned for the day while the chef is busy in the kitchen. But, of course, many family members can't wait to catch up on the gossip. 

You wouldn't miss the Cranberry-Peanuckle holiday festivities, so you've made travel plans and have your suitcase packed. This is where your story begins.

    thanksgiving Thievery

    Posted by Nancy Larson on Nov 30th 2022

    We played during our Thanksgiving dinner, with 12 players age 13 to 71. We had fun, lots of laughs and 3 people figured out who stole Tom Turkey. Thanks for a great way to celebrate.

    A common thief stole our dinner

    We change the game up just a little by before as we were handing out the second clue cards the character read the clues at bottom of card and that really started the laughter and characters to come out of my family members. Did the same with clue card #2 as we handed out the solution cards which then really set up the suspects. What a fun thing to do family enjoyed.

    We had players ages 8-87, FIVE generations!! Everyone had a great time. I purchased the game a week or so in advance and emailed folks links and information so they could do a little “homework” before arriving. Everyone came dressed in character and ready to play. I printed the materials up and was able to prepare everything without taking away from my playing the game . Even took advantage of the additional “Who/what am I ?” and “Word Scramble” games. We have been doing this type of game with different groups of people for years. It’s a great way to get folks to put down the phone, turn off the TV, use some creativity and actually be with and enjoy other folks.
