The Greatest Murder on Earth | Boxed Set
A freaky circus-carnival murder mystery game for 6-12 players, ages 16 and up for difficulty. Select the party ready option above, and our staff will fold and slip the clue cards for rounds one, two, and three into the envelopes to prevent you from seeing spoilers on the round cards. If you do not select this option, you will have some assembly required with your kit. The download version is a different product and does not come with the party pack, as they are not seamless and materials should not be used together.

The Greatest Show on Earth is a company of traveling performers including clowns, acrobats, musicians, and dancers. The Big Top show is accompanied by a carnival of thrilling rides, games of chance, and sideshow acts such as a wax museum, walk-through exhibits, and awe-inspiring stunts. Max A. Million’s hosting a debut party for the first funfair in the dismal town of Deadwood Valley, but is having a difficult time bringing this eclectic group of misfits together. Nobody gets along and scandals are brewing behind every corner.
Max has made it mandatory for all employees to attend this festive gathering under the Big Top, so you don’t have a choice but to dust off your best party attire. This is where your story begins.

Ultimate Surprise Birthday party!!
I surprised my best friend with this murder mystery party and embraced the Circus theme with decorations and costumes and food. She was so surprised and excited for the game :) Everyone got creative and into each character and had a blast. In the end only 1 person suspected the murder but he was able to convince people he was innocent so it was a fun reveal at the end. I would totally recommend this mystery and encourage you and to dress the part. Loved working with this company!!
This kit was a hit!
I have previously participated in murder mystery parties but never hosted my own. We bought this kit for my 32nd birthday and everyone had a great time, from our friends to my grandma! Lots of fun to be had with the circus theme including decor and themed catering. We will definitely be return customers.
Great night of entertainment!
We celebrated my daughter’s 30th birthday in quarantine with this murder/mystery...and what a blast we had! The whole family got into character with costumes, and we dove in head first with ALL the food we made: corn dogs, candy apples, cotton candy, funnel cakes, etc. The game packaging was very nice, the instructions were very clear and easy to follow, and the suggested “banter” was hilarious! I highly recommend this murder mystery and look forward to trying other scenarios!!!
The Greatest Murder on Earth
We used this murder mystery as entertainment for my daughter's 16th birthday party. It was very easy to use and the girls had a great time. Two of the girls solved the mystery, so it was just the perfect level of difficulty. I loved how playing the game kept them all mixing and mingling and there was no time for the conversation to turn teenage girl snarky---mostly because they had a topic to discuss. I highly recommend!
