Murder Mystery Reviews

We had a wonderful time with this game. The clues were easy to follow and created natural questions and conversations. There were so many suspects and little side plots that it kept us all on our toes. By the time we got to round 4, most of us hated to see it end. Can't wait to do another murder mystery!

Terrific evening. Our first murder mystery. EVERYONE embraced their characters. An evening of laughs and camaraderie and great fun. Instructions on how to host were extremely helpful and the game flowed beautifully. - "Desperate Neighbors" Mystery Party Review

I was looking for a different way to celebrate my birthday. This will go down has one of the best events we have ever hosted. All of my guests embraced their characters and loved the idea of a murder mystery. The next day everyone was talking about and planning who will host the next one. The preparation easy and the pre-game clues engages your guests before the event. Great game for couples.

Desperate Neighbors was a great murder mystery game. It was my first time hosting and playing and I had such a great time. I invited mostly couples since there were an even amount of boy and girl players so that was perfect. Just cleaned the house since it took place within the neighborhood,so i didn''t really have to use much decor except for tableware. All in all, I think this game is perfect for those hosting their first time and for first time players.

This game was great! only 1 person figured out who the murderer was--the murderer also mentioned that they suspsected by the 3rd clue that they were the culprit. Really great mix of characters if you have couples involved as well as some singles to mix in. Great variety.

I loved this one. It was so much fun. I added four characters and made up clues for them but it worked out great. I had 18 people at the party and it went off without a problem. Only one of them got the murderer right. Everyone stayed in character the whole night and it made the game alot of fun. I absolutely recommened this game!
