Murder Mystery Reviews

We love the murder mysteries at Host-Party. The Masthead Mutiny is a shorter party with an attempted murder which is great for the younger age group. Everyone had fun playing a pirate and interacting with the rest of the crew. I love the fact that everyone is a suspect and has equal opportunity to solve the crime. We are already planning the next Who Dunnit? Savvy?

We did this one with a party of 11 year old boys, and had a great time. Some suggestions- if you are missing some characters, it is still possible to work this mystery. What we did was to post the clues for the missing characters on a wall after each round- if you remembered to check the wall, you got their clues. To make it a little more difficult, you might want to screen out some of the clues. Great fun, in addition to solving the mystery, the kids had a great time "swashbuckling" the night away!

I threw this party as my son's 12th birthday party. It was a big hit. All the kids really got into it and planned costumes beforehand. They loved being able to communicate on the website before and after the party. I took the suggestion to give them all little notebooks and pencils, and they loved to write down all the clues. It was very easy to get pirate-type decorations and such to enhance the event My only complaint is that some characters do not get much to do--and all my guests wanted to participate. I enhanced the Round 4 "cabin search" into a scavenger hunt, and I added several additional false clues so every character could find something. I think that helped. Overall, my son and I were very pleased with how this mystery works. I would recommend it highly.

Mutiny game was fantastic. The girls enjoyed playing the parts. We buried treasure in the yard for the 4th round bunk clues and served dinner. Lots of fun with exciting crew parts.
