'The Psycho Circus (Teen)'  Game Synopsis

8-13 Guests

Ladies and Gents, hold your horses...the circus is in town! But where is Reginald the Ringmaster? He's nowhere to be found on the Freaky Fairground. All that's left of him is his top hat which was found in the lion's cage. And the lion is not hungry... As the circus performers get closer and closer to solving the mystery, more of them will die strange and seemingly inexplicable deaths, each with a mysterious Tarot card left behind at the scene of the crime. Will they be able to work together to solve the crimes before "The Psycho Circus" opens? After all, the show must go on...

Ever thought of running away and joining the circus? Think again. Play an eerily entertaining and challenging circus murder mystery game for 8-13 teenagers. While more than one guest will be bumped off during the game, they'll have their chance to continue playing...from the grave. (Adult version also available)

Murder Mystery Reviews

Great theme, and group of 14 teenagers (ages 13 to 17), all enjoyed it. One problem is the clues are hard to read aloud, as the girls kept getting confused when accusing someone, the clues would say "you" and the girls were not sure if "you" meant them or the person they were accusing. Would be better if the clues are written, so they could be read aloud by the guests as they are written. The theme meant the costumes were all fabulous and really helped create the theme. We did up our back deck to look like a circus tent using plastic tablecloths from the $2 shop, with fairy lights making it bright and colourful.
