My friends and I had a lot of fun with this product for our virtual New Year's Eve party. It was tough to find games that worked for just 5 and this one absolutely fit the bill. It was nice, too, to have the puzzles to solve in the middle of the mystery - made it almost like an escape room which was a fun combination. Our only suggestion was for a bit more character development. The "pre-game" texting was an interesting idea but pretty limited in how much you could interact. The round 1 info was an introduction to the other characters and the plot, and then the round 2 information was trying to wrap everything up. It just felt a little abrupt. Still, we had a lot of fun. Thank you for a memorable night! Unknown on Jan 12th 2021
5 of us played this game for NYE virtually. It was so much fun and easy to follow through the instructions. This was our first time with anything like this. I highly recommend doing the pre-game activities. It was fun to get into character early and build anticipation for the event. Will definitely be playing another one of these! KJ on Jan 6th 2021
Normally our team goes out for a Virtual Reality event at year end but because of the pandemic, this was not possible this year. Instead we decided to do a Virtual Murder Mystery. Who Wacked the Mole was a lot of fun and very much enjoyed by the whole team. Everyone got into their characters, using the 20s lingo and setting Speak Easy backgrounds. A few people even dressed the part! We haven't laughed that much in a long time. Some of us were able to figure out who the murderer was. I would recommend it for anyone looking for some Virtual fun!! Jenn S on Dec 30th 2020
Having a big birthday during lockdown was not ideal at all, but arranging to do this murder mystery virtually was probably the best thing I could have done! It was so much fun, everyone really got into the characters and wore appropriate costumes, so we really felt invested in protesting our own innocence! It works really well that no-one knows who the murder is, not even themselves, because it just kept the mystery going until the end. Some of the puzzles were quite hard, but we had a laugh trying to figure them out. Would highly recommend. Kristina on Dec 1st 2020
