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.

The characters are fun. And premise is entertaining. I always tweak the format a bit because it suits our group better. I do an introductory round where we go around and each person introduces him/her self to group with a prewritten line or two. This will be our group’s 4th murder mystery and a party that everyone looks forward to. (We actually won’t be doing this party until Jan 2022…the house will still be decorated from Christmas). Also I have found that it is easier if my husband and I don’t take an official role. For this one I will be Noel and he will be the bartender. Noel on Oct 2nd 2021
We had a blast with this mystery! Only thing I could say negative was the instructions were unclear at times on the order of events. Made hosting a little difficult. Other than having to wing a couple times it was awesome!
FROM MY MYSTERY PARTY STAFF:
We hate to hear the instructions were not clear. We'll be contacting you for more details. We are glad you had a blast! Thank you for your feedback! Vanessa on Jan 10th 2021
Highly recommended distraction in this (covid) time of reduced sized gatherings. Boosted everyone's spirits, even a week.in advance thanks to pre-game tasks, costume and menu suggestions Evie Wright on Dec 21st 2020
I ordered this for a company Christmas party and it was a hit. The only reason I am giving this a 4 star is for this reason: I think you should have a blank line where it tells you to hide the victim sign & murder weapon so that people have the option to decide where to hide it and so that the victim knows where to grab it as well. Our office has bathrooms (like the instruction) but our bathrooms are not co-ed and with having both males and females playing this game with trying to keep everything a surprise, it was hard to place the objects. Other than that, the game itself was very organized and everyone had fun!
From My Mystery Party Staff:
We truly appreciate your feedback! Glad you enjoyed yourself at the party! We're always here via email/phone to give you options when you meet a stumbling block such as having co-ed restrooms. We've come across company parties with co-ed bathrooms and have seen that making a simple announcement at the start of round two for the victim to contact one of the hosts to find out where the kit will be is a quick and easy fix. And, the host can play without knowing the victim until round two. Unknown on Dec 26th 2019
