Game Reviews

  • This was a fantastic game. Everyone had a really great time coming up with fun costumes and they loved playing their part. No one knew who the killer was until the end and it was a suprise for everyone! We will be playing another game in the future!!

  • I really enjoyed it :) Although the solution was much more complicated than we anticipated. We just agreed to reveal all the reveal 'conceal' clues which speed things up!

  • With some slight modifications, this game was great for a 10 yr old birthday party.

  • Played this with a group of 10-11 year-olds, who enjoyed it a lot. They loved the dressing up and role-playing their characters. It was a good one for children as they were all simple characters who they already knew. The game lasted 1.5 - 2 hours. Recommended!

  • A murder mystery party was a perfect idea for my daughter's 15th birthday party...teenagers love to sit around & chat and this would give them some focus. I had fun preparing for "A Fatal Fairytale". Lots of props from op shops created the scene for a medieval feast! On the day of the event my daughter staged the "crime scene" and instagrammed it to her friends telling them they were suspects. Everyone engaged with the fun by dressing according to their character and thoroughly surprised me with how well they took on their roles. From start to end they stayed in character. So impressed! Would highly recommend but would say the more preparation you do the greater chance it has to succeed and make sure there some players that like a bit of drama..they'll lead the way.

  • This game was terrific! We had 6 13yr olds and it was a blast. We took the advice of previous reviews and did not do the bookmark game. Instead, in order to earn the bonus clue, they "drew straws". Actually, it was picking the chocolate peep with red food coloring on it..they got the clue. All in all it was a very good game. Clever and a ton of fun. The website and ability to send invitations was terrific. I was impressed all around and then even more impressed when my kids had an absolute blast!

  • We hosted a small birthday party with four 12 and 13 year olds with the Fatal Fairy Tale. My daughter wanted to have guests come up with their own characters (or pick from the list). So we had a Detective Conan Edogawa (mapped nicely to the Holmes character), a President of a neighboring country, a street urchin, and Merlin. Had to modify the clues to match the new characters and the two parents took other characters (especially Cinderella). The girls really liked the game - "the best birthday party I have been to in a long time." Lots of fun.
