    1. Easy to implement and very customizable

      I ordered this game for a birthday party (there are four of us with October birthdays, and I love the 80s, so this was perfect). I thought an unscripted double blind mystery might be challenging, but it actually went quite smoothly. The unscripted nature (where each character has certain goals to accomplish in each round) allowed people to express themselves and get creative, and I think we had far more laughs than we would have with a purely scripted event. The additional games are fun to help fill out the evening, and I did take advantage of a couple of the included recipes (two of the drinks, in particular). The players not knowing who the victim was until the appropriate time and who the murderer was until the end kept everyone involved and thinking. The person who ended up being the victim was given another role to play after their death so they could continue to participate. Even the people attending who did not want roles actually became quite involved in the banter. The outcome of the game was logical and not terribly difficult to figure out when examining means motive, and opportunity (with some games, the murderer makes no sense). The flexibility of this game also made it easy to do some last minute cast changes, as two guests had a family emergency and were unable to attend. We thoroughly enjoyed this game and I would order another from this website. on Oct 26th 2017

    2. Great game!

      Everyone had a great time. Easy to prepare, easy instructions. on Apr 26th 2017

    3. Super fun

      We got this and the first expansion pack for a 30th birthday party. It got everyone to mingle and chat. The characters were great and only 1 person solved the mystery! Will definitely get other games on Nov 20th 2016

    4. Great time at a Work Teambuilding event

      We used this game plus one expansion pack for an afternoon team building session. The pre-game tasks really got people into character and we saw nearly 75% of the people in costume on the day of the event. Even the people that were not initially excited really got into it. We can't wait for our next event. Great product. Lots of laughs had by all. on Apr 29th 2016
