She’s sent invitations to everyone she knows for a Free Day of Beauty at Betty’s Grand Reopening, but when the guests arrive they find Britt’s lifeless body lying in the center of the shop. Now they’re all suspects. Great for spa parties. Plan a whole night of makeovers while the mystery unfolds. Just watch your back!

By now the whole town has heard that Monty Argent, teen-aged son and heir of ridiculously wealthy Pierce Argent, is inviting kids who are, or pretend to be, his friends to an over-the-top Halloween costume party at the Argent's fabulous estate. This will certainly be the social highlight of the spooky season for all of the town's residents aged anywhere from 13 to 19: invitations are essentially tickets to popularity. As the party is under way, the scary special effects become truly terrifying, however, when their wealthy host is suddenly swallowed up, literally, by the giant devil-head set up as the "Mouth of Hell"! Was this a simple accident, a prank gone wrong, or perhaps attempted murder? A brief appearance by an adult hostess is built into the game to help set the scene.
