Bloodworth Falls is an isolated town plagued with scandals. The townsfolk bicker in the streets, and many believe the local government is corrupt. Nevertheless, the mayor is hosting a mysterious masquerade ball in the old Ravenwood Castle. The tickets to the event have sold out in record time. The townspeople are curious to find out why the mayor would put effort into doing something positive in this hopeless town of gloom. Anticipation for the event hangs thickly in the air, and many are already hunting for the perfect mask. You are worried what will happen on this night when toxic people come together. You are alarmed, as you didn't purchase your ticket - it was placed in your mailbox in an unmarked envelope. Somebody wants you there, but you don't know why. This is where your story begins.
This instantly downloadable game accommodates 40 unique players by using both expansion packs and an additional yet optional ability to expand to over ~130+ guests by using teams (duplicate players) with expansion pack #1. View the character list of expansion pack #1 for further details. The game may expand above 200, but not much further than that.

Instructions were lengthy but easy to follow! Game play was lots of fun, not too easy or difficult. Only two of eight people were able to guess the correct murderer in the end, but everyone had a great time. DB on Mar 1st 2018
Great time, great game, and the instructions were super easy to follow. Company get together and everyone had a memorable experience. 5 Guys and a Truck on Feb 19th 2018
I wanted to host a murder mystery party for my 30th birthday, and I pulled the trigger on the idea just a week before the actual day. My Murder Mystery Party made the process easy to plan and follow, and the writing of the story and characters provided ample fodder for guests to dive into. Joel on Jan 29th 2018
We used the game at our daughter's 14th bday party. We had 20 girls. This was just perfect for them. The game was well planned and organized. Also had easy to follow instructions & I appreciated the suggestions for food and optional games. The kids played their parts enthusiastically and had alot to discuss. The characters were interesting and described well, so no one felt they didn't have a good part.
The victim & murder reveal were really fun & well planned in the game. I liked that the game kept those hidden as long as possible. Also really liked that the victim could keep playing.
The clues & instructions to each character were also well done & organized.
But not too rigid that you can't add your own flare to it. We added an appearance by an Inspector modelled after the Pink Panther Inspector Clusaeu (played by my husband) to deliver some important Info in the game.
We bought the extension, which is a good option & I'm really glad they have it.
However, 20 people is alot, even with the extension I think the game is still best played with 15-18 people. With so many guests some people didnt get long enough conversations with each other to learn all the info about the other characters. However, it is doable.
Loved this game & product. Well worth the money spent & super fun. The kids kept saying how much they enjoyed it. Shehnaz Khan on Dec 23rd 2017
