How to Play
Is this your first murder? Don’t worry, we take all the pain out of the process.
You simply download the mystery materials, invite your friends, and follow the simple, easy-to-follow guide of how to set-up and run your own murder mystery party.
The night plays out in a simple 8-step process. It starts with guests arriving in costume, leads to a MURDER, and concludes when the mystery is solved.
Secrets for Success
What else do you need to know? Here’s some wisdom gained through hosting thousands of these parties!
If you still have question, the Frequently Asked Questions page at Night of Mystery is a great resource or you can contact us.
Because of this, WE STRONGLY SUGGEST you get a guest count before formally ordering. You can do so by downloading an invitation, inviting your guests and then purchasing your mystery once you have a more accurate number of people attending. Unfortunately, if you find yourself purchasing the wrong sized party, you will have to purchase another version of the mystery for the size you want unless you are moving from the 15-20 version to the 20+ version.
You can download an invitation here before ordering.
– Look above on this page in the Costumes, Decorations and Food & Music tabs.
