Mystery Synopsis:

Christmas City is a charming city in the North Pole dedicated year-round to the Christmas holiday. Popular businesses include Santa’s Workshop, which is the largest toy store in the world. Another fabulous hot spot is The Gingerbread Shop, which is known for the most fashionable Christmas couture, and of course, people flock from all around the world to spend a day at the awe-inspiring Winter Wonderland Amusement Park. Last but not least is The Egg Noggery which is a sweet shop world-renowned for their scrumptious gingerbread cookies and eggnog.

Christmas City is also a popular vacation spot for the rich and famous as their ski slopes are the absolute best in the world. Noel’s Tavern is the place to be in Christmas City where the locals relax and unwind from the hustle and bustle of their lives in the city. Each year, Noel’s Tavern hosts the annual Christmas Jamboree to celebrate the hard work of the laborers in town that make Christmas around the world possible.

This year, an exciting list of guests have RSVP’d for the party, and the manager of Noel’s Tavern has high hopes that this will be the biggest holiday celebration ever! Unfortunately, the spirits of the citizens are dampened in Christmas City with the recent news of a heinous murder on Snowball Street. None other than Old Saint Nick was gunned down in cold blood! Currently, a vigorous investigation is underway, and the residents of Christmas City have become increasingly suspicious of each other.

Mayor Rudolph held a press conference and mandated the townspeople maintain business as usual. The mayor announced the annual bash at Noel's Tavern must go on, as Santa would have wanted it that way. You have RSVP’d for the party and have your perfect holiday inspired outfit picked out. This is where your story begins.

    Best Party Ever

    This mystery was wonderful! The guests loved it. I was skeptical when u read an actual murder would happen in thus one because in previous ones, the murders had already been committed. Oh it was wonderful! Each guest was really into their part and the victim really played the role fantastically. This is a great murder game.
