Game Reviews

  • This was a lot of fun! We changed the plan a little bit - instead of reading clues aloud, we "mingled" and had conversations with each guest, so we found out the clues individually. It took longer, but it seemed more realistic. We were all surprised at the outcome, and had fun going back through the clues to read them after the fact to see what we'd missed.

  • The ending is a big surprise. The clues in round one leave you a little puzzled but stick with it. This game is super fun!

  • This was a great party. Everybody had a lot of fun. None of us even guessed the real murderer. I will definately do one of these parties again!

  • We played the game at a murder mystery Pathfinder sleepover (Pathfinders is an older branch of Girl Guides). There were 7 girls and 3 leaders, the 2 extra leaders were police officers and helped to interrogate and lead the game. The girls seemed to have a lot of fun... We had a lot of fun and will definitely be doing it again next year.

  • My friend hosted this murder mystery and I thought it was incredible. Everyone had so much fun and we really got into our characters, "accusing" murderers at the end of each round (for fun). The ending surprised everyone and no one guessed who it was! I would recommend this for 12-19 year-olds. Suggestion: really get into your character and create a "crime scene" with tape to block off the area until you are completely ready to let your guests check out the sight. This was soooooooooo much fun! :)

  • I had this Murder Mystery as my 11th Birthday party. I really enjoyed it and so did my friends. A bit of advise: make sure you listen very carefully and take a few note of what you think is important. Overall it is a fanstastic game and very fun !!! I recommened it to everyone!
