What happens when 'happily ever after' becomes 'deadly ever after'? Someone has poisoned Scheherazade. Who could be the guilty party? Could it be Hamlet? John Silver? Snow White? Juliet? Or someone else? Fun clues and an optional trivia challenge (how well do you know all these stories?) wi...
We did this dinner party as a girl scout meeting. The girls really got into it. They played their characters really well and had such a good time. They all want to do another one. Very, Very FunConnie - Folsom, CA
This was our first murder mystery party and it was a blast. We had it on Halloween, age ranged from 21-40 years old and we had about 18 guests which means we added some characters like Little Bo Peep, Merlin...etc. It was so easy to add characters into the plot, though you have to be a bit creative, but no one could tell who was an original or added character, it was seemless. The storyline was great, and the clues were very well written. The email and invitation tools were so helpful in easy mass communication and it was nice that everyone got a chance to log-on to the website to see the details and guest list of the party. I highly reccomend this game!Ari . - Montreal, QC
We did this murder mystery for my daughter''s 13th b-day party. We had a limo pick up all the kids and bring them to the house. When they arrived a friend of mine and myself were dressed as waiters and we brought them in and gave them all note pads and pens, and then we had Sherlock Holmes start by telling the back ground of the story and what had happened. My friend and I went around serving drinks and as we did that we handed the clues out to them. It was so much fun. The kids really got into there characters and it was great fun! We used the fingerprint analyzer, but I think that it really just confused them. I think that it should give out some sort of clue on each suspect. And it said match on everyone except the one person that did do it. So I think that that could be done a little better. But the game itself was a blast and the kids just had the best time!Peyton S. - Troutdale, OR
I hosted this party shortly before Halloween, and it was a blast! Adding characters was a bit of a hassle, but it probably would have been easier if I''d known who was coming sooner than the day of!Jamie - Phoenix, AZ
We''ve done several murder mysteries over the past three years and this one was done for a birthday party. I have to say that the game was enjoyable, but still confusing. We read all the characters, even if they weren''t there, because otherwise you have some random clues flying around. Overall though, it was enjoyable. Unfortunately the killer couldn''t make it so that part wasn''t as fun for us.Becca S. - Murfreesboro, TN
I had a GREAT time with the Deadly Ever After game. We had 14 people (including me). Everyone loved knowing who the characters were since they were based on literary characters. I made feather pens for everyone to write with and that was fun. I didn''t use any of the meal suggestions since this was more of a dessert party (a surprise birthday party). I used a corked glass jar for the poison bottle and added a little bit of corn syrup mixed with green food coloring and attached the "Touchest Not Lest Ye Die" note to it. Having the Arabian Nights book is totally unnecessary. No one guessed why we had the wool ring. The solution is not very obvious (the motive was lame but funny) unless they get all the correct answers to the beginning game: "Are YOU a storyteller?" With 14 people it was hard to make sure everyone heard all the clues and put two and two together. Everyone mixed and mingled around the dessert table while disclosing clues. As a hostess I learned who the murderer was ahead of time. I wish I hadn''t because I didn''t feel like I was as interested in playing the game, but it was really fun to watch everyone interact and try to be in character. Everyone had a fantastic time and complimented me on the fun night. It was the talk of town at church the next day. :)Erika B. - Hillsboro, OR
...All-in-All this murder mystery party was a success. Our group has enjoyed putting together many murder mystery parties, which has become a tradition. We look forward to doing this again next year, once again using this website, but we will plan to purchase a game that has a script conducive to our group.Cheri M. - Lodi, California
