It's time to put on that leisure suit, bellbottoms, platform shoes and grab your mood ring as you and your guests solve "That '70s Murder". Big-time record producer 'Rockin' Roland has been found dead during his party in his hip Malibu beach house. Your guests will have fun answering '70s trivia ...
This game was so much fun! Dressing up like people from the 70s, acting, and dancing like them made me wish I was from the 70s! Everyoje at the party had an amazing time, and the story had so many twists and turns that everyone was entertained! It was great.Chelsey B.
This turned out to be a great night! It took a few minutes for everyone to get into character, but once they did, it was great! The dancing contest was fun, but the quiz was tough for anyone not in their prime in the 70s. Things seemed to pick up after people got comfortable with their characters-to the point that some people were calling people out on the carpet for things they had done that were revealed in their clues! It drove me to laughing several times, it was hard to keep a straight face and stay in character.Abbey F. - Chalmette, LA
We had a great night! Played with 5 couples. Everyone came dressed up and read their descriptions and even brought their character appropriate props. We chose not to do the first activity (dance contest) but did enjoy the 70''s trivia activity. The clues were fun and a couple of the female characters really got into a fight over a guy!! We had wine at the beginning, read #1 clues, then went to dinner. After dinner did trivia and #2 clues and then had chocolate fondue. After dessert, followed with wine, guesses and then reading of #3. It took about 2.5 hours. But we took a while talking about other things as well. I would recommend this game. Of course you get what you put into it. It would be boring if everyone didn''t get really into it with costumes and all. The only negative was when clues involved characters that we did not cast.Amy W. - Kennewick WA
We did this game for my daughter''s 14th birthday party. There were 8 girls total and they had so much fun! There were a few of the optional characters that I needed to read to them so they fit into the story, but overall, the optional characters weren''t missed. The girls played right into their clues and the part of the story where two girls got into a fight was played out to perfection. My advice is #1 have someone to set up the party that will not be playing. And #2 that person should read every single clue and pick characters carefully. It made it so much fun to have the more outspoken guests play the obnoxious characters and that left the more subtle characters to the shyer guests. None of the the girls guessed who the killer really was and they thought that was hysterical. Great fun!Maya G. - Illinois
I used the 70''s Murder Mystery as my daughter''s surprise 16th birthday party. We had her costume ready to go in her bedroom. My nieces kept her out after school until time to come. Her friends for the most part came dressed in homemade costumes. They weren''t too excited about the disco dance off, but when I played Y.M.C.A. everyone started moving! The trivia was too hard for them and it was a clue, BUT, I read the answers to them in round 3 as instructed. That gave them the opportunity to see the clue in the game. They missed it. I showed it to them when we were done. "Ohhh" was the reaction! Very fun. My daughter was soo surprised. I hope to do a murder mystery party again. Not bad for the 1st try! I think I can do it better next time!DIANN M. - Yukon, Ok
I hosted this party for my daughter''s 13th birthday. All the girls dressed in character & had a blast. No one figured out who the culprit was. I changed the trivia questions to relate to things they would understand (trying to keep it in the 70''s era & keeping the answer the same). I had theme food (i.e. fondues,candy etc.) & had our basement decorated like a disco. I also several rooms in our house set up as the office, the main character''s bedroom, the dining area with clues all around. I sent out the first clue and a notebook, mood ring & pencil to all the girls a week before. I think it helps to have them understand the game a little before they came. I took about 2 1/2 hours to play. A lot of fun to get into the the party & characters! Will definately host another party.Susan . - Omaha, NE
Best party we''ve ever had, however, the murder mystery was confusing to everyone participating. A more detailed script of what the characters were to do would have been helpful. Each character could have had more details and clues. None of the other guests/character knew what to ask the characters. I think a list of investigator questions should be supplied to the guests and each character should know how to answer the questions to make it more fun.Jaime K. - Fort Myers, FL
