A non-murder Christmas themed mystery game formatted for virtual (or home) play for 6-10 players, ages 9 and up - and even younger ones can play along with help. Great for families!
Kid-friendly solution to the game, so no worries on ruining the magic of Christmas.
Play on Zoom, Google Hangout, or any video chat platform. There is a 6 player expansion pack available (purchased separately) with a spectator file to cover up to 100+ non-suspect players. This game takes about two hours to play. Instantly downloadable upon purchase - no waiting, no shipping fees, as there is nothing that must be shipped - you get everything you need to play instantly. The game can be played in two ways - at home with a group or via a video-chat service of your choice.
The North Pole has entered a state of chaos and turmoil. It's two days before Christmas and Santa Claus has been kidnapped! The Chief Operations Officer of Santa's Workshop has called an urgent meeting at Santa's Cottage to investigate what happened and to put a search party together to find Santa Claus. Since he disappeared earlier this afternoon, the Christmas spirit has drastically diminished around the world. Hosts are canceling holiday parties, cities are denying permits for parades, prices in retail stores are skyrocketing, Christmas trees are browning without explanation, and children are flipping over to the Naughty List at record-breaking rates. If this continues, nobody will even care about Christmas by the time it gets here! You are a resident of the North Pole and might have information on Santa’s disappearance. You will attend this meeting with bells on. This is where your story begins.

We played this with my extended remote family. Had a good time. Definitely recommend any younger players play on a team with an adult. Jason DaPonte on Jan 4th 2021
Having realised that our usual sociable New Year wouldn’t be taking place, we decided we needed to do something to sustain our family of 4 (incl 13 and 9 year olds) through until midnight.
This was the perfect thing. We decided to keep to us 4, rather than Zoom with friends. V easy to organise, none of us needed to know the kidnapper in advance, so all could enjoy the game.
This is the 2nd time we’ve used my mystery party: 1st for a birthday party with 10 kids. They’re brilliant: we’ll use them again!
Thank you. Unknown on Jan 3rd 2021
I was surprised how well our family members got into character and how well some of them matched up! We had fun but it was too long for us to finish during the time we had allowed. Also - I should have made name tags as they had a hard time remembering who was which character. Karen Pottebaum on Dec 29th 2020
Was used as a work Christmas party event. With Covid no face to face so had our Christmas party via zoom.
We had a blast. Everyone came dressed and had virtual backgrounds that matched their character. Example Pinky Gumdrop background was an actual egg nog factory!
Works amazing when everyone is committed to the character. We had one person who wasn’t completely on board but quickly joined in when he saw how much fun everyone was having.
Great event for the price, well thought out and easy to follow as the host and/or guest.
Just know as host you need to have some prep time at least a couple days before the event. And if you can give your guests at least a week notice, will allow them to prep a costume. Michelle on Dec 18th 2020
