A festive medieval murder mystery party for 7-12 guests (8F, 4M), ages 15+ for difficulty. The game is co-ed but may be played as all-female with required players.
Note: there are 7 required females for this game. However, there is a conversion kit available for download with a new suspect list and name tag so you can change the required character Yedvthe into a male if needed for game play. That way, there will be only 6 required females. This is the instant download upon purchase version of the game - no waiting, no shipping fees! Easy to host, easy to prepare.
Over the last century, the Ethos Realm has become more disordered and tumultuous. The relationships between the six kingdoms have deteriorated, but with the impending marriage between the House of Langstone and Tyrele, there is hope for peace and unity.
Queen Crestian Langstone has invited all royal families from the Ethos Realm to the Castle of Westerfell to join in celebration the night before her son’s wedding.
It is curious that some of the invited guests have previously been banished or have fled the Kingdom of Westerfell for fear of their lives, but for some peculiar reason, they have accepted the queen’s invitation and will attend the festivities. Does the queen have ill-intentions, or is she turning over a new leaf and extending the olive branch to her former foes?
This is where your story begins.
In addition to the fun medieval murder mystery party instant download, there are additional bonus games.

I chose Game of Crowns for my daughter's surprise 15th birthday party. This was the first time I've ever had anything to do with a murder mystery party, and I had one week to prepare it. The kit was easy to use and the instructions were clear enough for this first-timer to pull off a successful party. I had a couple questions and Nancy responded immediately to my emails -- at night. It was great to feel like I'd be able to get an answer quickly if anything else came up.
The girls were all very excited about the party, and they all had a great time. It was challenging for them to figure out the entire situation (the age range seems about right), but they got it sorted out, although only one guessed the murderer correctly. I was glad that it was challenging enough for smart 15-year-olds without being risqué or off-color. It was fun to see them get used to their roles and to hear them start talking with each other in character.
My only little disappointment was that I couldn't help seeing who the murderer was as I prepared the clues. Also, I had to buy an expansion pack to have roles that seemed to fit everyone, but it was still worth the price.
I debated between this mystery and a more established and popular one, but I chose this one because it was more in line with my daughter's interests, and I'm very glad I did -- it was perfect. We're all looking forward to finding another excuse to have another murder mystery party before too long, and it will definitely be from this site. Unknown on Aug 23rd 2016
