Terror In Transylvania

As the members of the haunting and haunted gather at the desolate Transylvania castle,
this will be
an evening away from mortals where the
supernatural community can come together to celebrate and carouse!

During the night of spooktacular fun, one of the party-goers will end up in a grave
they have dug for themselves. Desperate to avoid becoming victims themselves,
the ghoulish guests will seek out the culprit in their midst

Perhaps the murderer will be the bewitching witch with a cross to bear?
A mollified mummy who needs to keep things under wraps?
Or possibly a vindictive vampiress who was once bitten twice shy?

What lies ahead is a hauntingly complex night during which
the spooky and the spirited collide to solve a mystery designed
that will leave you spellbound.

We have a virtual version of this mystery that can be played in an online platform!

To help create a dreary and eerie party atmosphere, consider keeping the lighting low. A few excellently spooky ideas are:

  • Black Lighting!!!
  • Candles
  • Lighting with dimmer switches
  • Replacing your lightbulbs with colored lights
  • Spider lights (see this link)
  • Have some Harry Potter inspired “hanging candles” (see this link)
  • Use old wine bottles as candle holders. Optional: spray paint them black to give them an extra spooky appeal!
  • Colored Light Bulbs (pictured far below)
    • A way to have enough light, while giving an eerie feeling to the room
    • We used different colors in different rooms — green, orange, purple, etc.



Create a Photo Spot!!!

Give your guests an unforgettable souvenier by setting up a photo area where they can capture a picture of themselves in character.

A few suggestions:
• Pick a place where there will be good lighting.

• You can make it as elaborate or simple as you want.

• Accessories and decorations can make the difference. Have some extra props on hand that your guests can pose with.

• An easy way to create a background is to use a “scene setter.” These affordable rolls of images transform your room instantly and make for a good backdrop to your picture.

• Make sure there is enough room to fit everyone into the frame.

• For individual shots of guests, designate someone to be in charge of pictures as your guests arrive.
o Consider your character list and which character would fit the role of taking the picture. Ie, if you want mug shots, perhaps ask the investigator to be in charge of taking the pictures.

• For a group picture, take one just before the introduction is read or right after the solution is read (before people may start heading out).
o These are two times when you can count on everyone being around and attentive.

BACKDROP IDEAS for your Transylvanian photo spot

• Create a line-up board and take pictures of all of your suspects!

• Use scene setters to make a simple background. Find some here!!!

• Make a coffin (or coffins) for all of your guests to crawl in and/or pose around!

• Paint your own backdrop to pose in front of!

  • All of the information regarding how to run your Terror in Transylvania party can be found online at Night of Mystery. We highly suggest that you take time to look over our website and download the Terror in Transylvania preview file. Upon reading the introduction file, it will give you a better understanding about how the parties are run and what to expect once you purchase a full mystery file.

    If you still have question, the Frequently Asked Questions page at Night of Mystery is a great resource or you can contact us.
  • Since our games are custom written for the size of the party (ie, we don’t just create a mystery with 8 characters and then keep adding more characters to it), each mystery size is unique unto itself. That being said, going from 10-15 version to 15-20 version, will not only add in more characters, but it will change the storylines of the existing characters, and vice-versa in going from a larger version to a smaller one.

    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.
  • For even more party planning ideas, check out our Terror in Transylvania Pinterest Board here.
  • Once you order, in your mystery packet you will receive directions and/or printables to make unique and original decorations specific to your party! Included will be:

    • SIGNS
    • DESIGNED DINNER MENUS (you can personalize with your menu items)
    AND MORE!!!
