Murder Mystery Party: Meet Al Kohol and Brandy Chaser
The site has a great selection, with games for all ages and group sizes. There are even children's games (which don't involve murder) with themes like pirates, wildlife, Ancient Egypt, love potions, knights and fairies. An original birthday party idea!
You customize all of your party information on the website, and then print invitations which provide your guests with login details so they can access additional clues about their characters (and costume ideas) before the party.
The games are between $20 and $30, and you can choose from various time periods, settings, and holiday themes. (Wouldn't "Murphy's Wake" or "Paddy O'Really is Dead" spice up your St. Patrick's Day bash?) One caveat: the games are no friend to the environment, as my brother had to print out 111 pages in total for last night's event! (You can pay extra to have it printed and shipped to you.)
The game is really what you make of it, but with the right group it can be a lot of fun, which it was last night. Thanks, Ed and Ash! It was worth paying for a babysitter and staying up late, which I don't often say!
