Murder Mystery Reviews

Ran this as a 9 year olds birthday party for 12 kids! Wow....a bit crazy to start trying to get the kids to focus, but once they got into it they loved it! Took a good 3.5 hours (with a couple of short breaks for nibblies). Reading skills needs to be reasonable as some of the characters have quite long lines. ALso good if you can send out first round of clues (not just pre-game) before so the kids can get their heads around their characters and have more time to develop them. Kids loved the scary costumes though!
