Murder Mystery Reviews

I hosted this game with a group of Florida Floozies (a women's camping group in Florida) and it turned out way better than expected. I've hosted a New Year's Eve Murder Mystery for the past 5 years and liked this one the best. This is the first "all scripted" with questions and answers that I have done, all really loved it! I would highly recommend this game.

We had 14 guests come over for the ''Death of a Wizard'' Murder Mystery and everyone had a wonderful time. Every character was represented and I loved the fact that everyone had clues and questions to ask of each other. We''ve tried other Murder Mystery companies and unless you were a suspect and a required character, your involvement was really limited. But not with this one... ...All in all EVERYONE had a WONDERFUL TIME!!!
