Murder Mystery Reviews

I've been wanting to host a murder mystery party for years, and it's finally off my bucket list. We had 14 characters and 2 assistants who were invaluable in helping serve the food and drinks. The website worked beautifully. After a couple visits, things were easy to figure out and I had no trouble creating invitations, printing clues, sending messages, and getting everyone into the idea of playing their characters. You do need to put some time and thought into preparation and getting the guests interested. The evening was a new experience for most and definitely fun, but the key to success was definitely our guests. They came in character and stayed in character and made the evening a whole lot of fun.

It was Cheryl's retirement celebration with 9 women (some of us played men) it was a fun theme and a clever premis. None of us were sure how it would play out but it was very easy to follow with a cute ending. Costumes were easy and casually comfortable. We had alot of laughs-thank you!

Had a group of 14 people for a New Years party. Everyone had a great time. It was a fun way to begin the night! We chose Murder in Margaritaville and got lots of laughs seeing each other dressed for our parts. We would definitely do this again.

we used this game to introduce my 2 brothers, sister-in-law and sister to our friends. We had 14 participants, our 3rd and largest murder mystery yet! Our menu included taco dip, cheeseburgers, potato salad, fruit salad, and margarita cake. We had iced tea, Landshark beer and margaritas, of course. We played a sand bag toss called "feed the shark", a fast-paced line up in alphabetical order by first name(dividing into 2 teams), and a memory game (a tray with 26 summertime items viewed for 30 sec, 90 sec to create your list). We allowed plenty of time between meal courses for interviewing. In the end, we tossed about numerous scenerios and 3 people deduced the murderer! Fun was had by all.

I purchased A Murder in Margaritaville. It was a blast. Everyone enjoyed it even the skeptical ones. My husband kept telling me to cancel the murder mystery and we would just hang out. A half hour into the party he is planning the next murder mystery. My sister-in-law was skeptical. She didn''t want a part. One of my other guests canceled so she played that part to help me out. At the end of the night she was so glad she did. Most everyone wore a costume and stayed in character. It was funny to hear peoples guesses throughout the night. Host-party has so much information and different tools. I wouldn''t think of going to another website or a store to buy my next murder mystery. The invitation tracker is great as well as the drink estimator. It was right on. The website is so easy to navigate and has everything you need. I really like that they have so many different options to print your game, either yourself or sending it to Kinkos where you can pick it up. We had a blast. It was fun to decorate like we were in a tropical place, dress the part, and play a character. I will definitely be playing another one and would recommend this to anyone.

We traveled to the Outer Banks of North Carolina and do our mystery while on vacation. We had a blast!!!!!!!!!! I have told several friends about it and they would love to do it. I have provided this information to them so we will see if they do it.

My family spent a week in the Outer Banks. I bought this mystery for entertainment for one evening. Everyone was given a part to play and they knew a month in advance who they were going to be. We had an absolute blast. From the moment they all came to dinner it was on. They were so into character that I could not believe it. I laughed so much until I cried. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Only one person solved the murder. Oh and the song to be sung to Margaritaville went over smooth as silk. My whole family enjoyed the evening more that I can tell you.
