Current Stock:

A hilarious ugly Christmas sweater themed murder mystery party game for 8-20+ guests, ages 14 and up (due to difficulty) - instantly downloadable upon purchase. There are 50 unique players available with both expansion packs and you can play with 200+ players. See the breakdown at the bottom of the page on how to host a large party.

Spoil yourself, and choose the party ready option above, and our dedicated staff will fold and slip your clue cards for rounds one, two, and three into the envelopes to prevent you from seeing spoilers on the round cards. Without the party ready option selected, you will have some assembly required with your kit and there will be spoilers upon opening the kit and viewing the rounds 2 and 3 clue cards. 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. 

Note: This is the traditional in-person, mingling format. If you need a virtual game for Christmas to play on Zoom or other video chat platform - we got your back. Click here for the virtual selection. We do have a murder and non-murder virtual Christmas game.

Murder Mystery Synopsis:

The Snowflake Lodge is hosting the annual Ugly Christmas Sweater party again this year. The townspeople of Snow Falls are excited about the holiday celebration, as the lodge is where the who's who of society flocks to show off their not-so-fashionable holiday attire. Sparks have been flying between some of the guests lately with rumors of blackmail, greed, and revenge - but we all have high hopes that the holiday spirit will be enough to quench their scandals at least long enough for everybody to have a good time at the party.

You've received your ticket to the party and's time to hunt for the tackiest holiday sweater that you can find. This is where your story begins.

    Great time had by all

    I used the Ugly Christmas sweater as an activity for a 16 yr old's Birthday Party. This activity work for the entire group whos ages16 to 72. Everyone had a great time, we altered the times just a little, everything was spot on and easy to set up. We are talking about doing another murder mystery next year.

    Many laughs- Christmas party-

    This was the second murder mystery party we have hosted- both through my mystery party, we had learned several things after the first party so this one was so much fun. The story line if fun, and all the UGLY sweaters that arrived to match the characters was so fun. We had added a couple last minute guest, I emailed and was sent the info I needed and was able to add them in and they never knew. Thank you much for another wonderful party. Have already picked out the next one.

    So fun! Great team building activity for our office Christmas party!

    Posted by Pauline on Nov 29th 2016

    This game was so much fun! I have hosted 3 My Mystery Party games in the past and I am a huge fan, but I was skeptical when I was asked to do this for our office Christmas party. We had 17 attendees all women except 1 poor male so we women stepped into full character for some of the male roles, wearing mustaches and all. The game definitely worked as a team building activity, with all the mingling and working together to find out who did it. The ugly sweater theme was an absolute hit! The characters were very entertaining. My team loved it and praised me for doing all the work but I didn't have to do much because My Mystery Party did all the hard work for me! It was my first time ordering the pre-packaged party pack and I was very impressed - it was organized and packaged so professionally. I hope my office asks me to host another game next year!
