Direct your invited party guests to Your Mystery Party to build pre-game excitement.
Bloodworth Falls is an isolated town full of scandal, blackmail and deceit. Nobody in town can seem to get along, and the local government has hidden motives for the dreadful decisions they make. The mayor is hosting a mysterious masquerade ball in the old Ravenwood Castle, and the tickets to the event sold out in hours. The townspeople are curious to find out why the mayor would put effort into doing something positive in this town of gloom, but are all eagerly hunting for the perfect mask, nonetheless. You are worried what will happen this night when such toxic people gather at the castle. You are also very concerned, 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.
Here's the breakdown of how to host a large game (see character lists below for details):
18 unique players from the main game.

Fun but complex
I used this game at a Halloween party where most of the guests didn't know each other. It served as a great icebreaker and got everyone talking. The game is very detailed which made deciphering the information and figuring out what to share and what to hide somewhat difficult. I definitely would only recommend this game to adults for this reason. I also would strongly suggest buying the game well in advance so that you can send out the optional pregame round. It's intended to build excitement for the party, but I feel it would have made the plot easier to follow and the murder easier to solve having spoken to some of the other guests and gathering information before the party.

Super fun. I played it for my sweet sixteen with 14 other girls. We had so much fun they want to have another one next year. Only advice I would give would be to hand out the who done it paper to people with the first clue so they can write down what they know or not hand them out(they aren't necessary) highly recamend this SUPER FUNx9999999Unknown
