Murder Mystery Synopsis:

In a quiet, foggy town in an unassuming neighborhood known as Misty Oaks, there is a sinister force lurking within the walls of what the town calls Ripper House.  Built on an ancient burial ground in the 1920’s by The Butcher of Noxhelm, the house has claimed over a hundred lives with some of the bodies said to have been buried in the crawl spaces. Visitors claim to have witnessed lights flickering, doors slamming, and other paranormal incidents.  It is well documented in history that whoever owns the home  will be dealt a hefty case of doom and despair with a twist of death and destruction. 

Ben and Brenda Biggs are the new homeowners of 203 Moorgate Street, and have invited the neighborhood over for a housewarming party. They seem like a nice couple, which is such a shame. You were invited. This is where your story begins.

    Overall I was very happy with the party, we all had many laughs! Dressing up is a must, that helps with the overall connectedness of the characters. I thought the party was a huge success!

    SO much fun! Just a little confusion for first timers!

    Posted by K.R. on Mar 11th 2018

    This was sooo much fun! Our friends had a blast in their costumes and getting into arguments in character! There was a little confusion when time came for victims to find their "victim kits" in the bathroom so it would've just been easier if I (as the host) didn't keep it a surprise or if we had a moderator or something. Otherwise, we had a great time and the twist at the end was great! Definitely worth the buy and we will definitely do this again!
