    Husband wants to do it again

    My family thoroughly enjoyed this. My mature 7 year old grandson was spectacular and played his role perfectly. There was slight confusion in the middle; and therefore, none of guessed correctly. But, that was okay. It was still a night of fun. I love that the directions were so complete.

    Great Party

    This party pack was way above and beyond my expectations. The amount of detail in each of the characters was phenomenal!!! My group really got into their characters which was so easy with the descriptions and costume suggestions. We laughed so hard at some of the clues. I think we will be talking about this party for quite awhile. BRAVO and Thank you for such a great party. I would give you 10!
