'Trouble At The Masters Stables'  Game Synopsis

6 - 20 Boys and/or Girls. 1 or 2 Hosts.

Tucked into a shady corner on the edge of Pasadena, California, The Masters Stables are home to two of the best riding schools in the nation, one Hunter Jumper and one Western. Though the feud between the two schools has been around practically since Mr. Masters opened the stables, everyone agrees the time has come for peace. So, why would someone break the truce by stealing the Manuary Invitational trophy in the middle of the first Unity Day celebration? On the eve of the Invitational, that doesn’t leave the students much time to find the trophy, uncover the troublemaker, and learn the dark truth behind their favorite home away from home. Horse lovers and detectives of all ages needed!

No murder, theft only. Set in present. Scavenger hunt style. Great for larger groups.

Murder Mystery Reviews

The girls had a great time playing this mystery. It ws a bit easy to figure out, but they were on the upper end of the age range suggested for this game (13 years old).

The kids really enjoyed this first foray into mystery parties. The adults want me to throw one for them! Since this was for Hannah's birthday and she loves horses more than most things I know of, we had to choose this particular mystery kit. I'm excited about playing more of the games. The only comment that could be construed as at all negative is that most of the kids couldn't really solve the mystery, because the main culprit is not a guest at the party but only someone spoken of. I think this made it difficult for them to consider this person as a suspect. One of the guests is an accomplice, and that part they guessed. Overall it was a fun experience for these kids, mostly aged 10 or 11. For us as parents, it was pretty easy to handle--the only difficult part was finding 20 places to hide clues! We all really got into it, and had a great time. Thank you for offering these parties--it makes for a fun night!
