    Saved the party

    Posted by John Weeden on Jul 25th 2021

    I started to write my own murder mystery, and realized too late that I was in over my head. The morning of the party I bought this pack, and edited it to fit the theme I had already made (pretentious art show). It ended up working perfectly, because art ends up being a pivotal story point. Saved the party from a sub par mystery.

    This was a hit!!!! Perfect for small or large groups!

    Posted by Annie on Feb 6th 2021

    I hosted this murder mystery wine tasting and dinner party last weekend (Jan 2021) and all my friends are still talking about it! If you have any doubts, just go for it!! It really helps if you make sure everyone dresses up to help them get into character and for decorations I bought some caution tape and marked the ground with painters tape in an outline of a body for the “victim”. I would recommend making sure you have enough printer paper and ink because there’s about 40 pages to print out. Also, if you need to contact this company for questions on what characters are critical (I only had 4 ppl) , you can email and they reply really fast! One other thing I did for the wine tasting, was buy the 19 crimes brand of wine. This was perfect with the murder mystery theme!! Good luck and have fun!!

    Fantastic way to have a memorable party!

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 5th 2021

    Perfect size for our small group. Everyone had a blast playing and got really into some of the characters. Only con I would have to say was I wish the clues were on separate pages (yes I know a waste of trees) but when cutting the clues I had a hard time focusing on NOT reading.

    We loved it!

    Posted by Callie Coleman on Sep 15th 2020

    5 of us played the wine tasting murder mystery and we had a great laugh! I was nervous as to how it would work out, since I didn't want to spoil the mystery for myself. But I placed all clues into different envelopes and the clues were very well organized and easy to follow. My guests followed the costume requests which was key. I highly recommend, I will be purchasing more in the future!

    Fun Birtday Game

    Posted by Kathryn on Jun 15th 2020

    I've always wanted to have a murder mystery party. The instant download was fun and a hit with my friends. Everyone dressed up in custom and got into their character. The clue cards had all the information needed. I was able to adapt the party games to a format that worked digitally. I would love to purchase another kit in the future and have been recommending this site to friends and family.

    A Night of Fun

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 3rd 2020

    I did this with my 4 other quarantine pals. It was so much fun! I "hosted" it, but I also played Gretchen Audigger. What a fun night! It was really fun to switch up the quaran-routine. Everyone got into character and it was an awesome evening. The story line worked well and it was a very entertaining mystery!

    Great Ice Breaker

    Posted by Marilyn on Dec 29th 2019

    We planned for an evening of fun over Christmas vacation when hosting a group of six adults. One of them our daughter's boyfriend from Australia. We wanted an ice-breaker game and got it in Fine Wine Good Friends. Which is not about good friends at all. It's about asking "personal" questions, dropping outrageous hints, acting audaciously and paying attention to detail. What fun!
