WHAT A GREAT PARTY!!!!!!!
16 PEOPLE GOT TOGETHER TO SOLVE A TALET SHOW MURDER MYSTERY AND ALL 16 PEOPLE HAD A GREAT TIME AND ALOT OF FUN,. EVERYTHING WENT SO WELL FROM FIRST DOWNLOADING THE GAME, PRINTING IT OUT, AND PLAYING IT VERY WELL. I HAVE ALREADY RECOMMENDED HOST-PARTY.COM TO OTHERS THANK YOU HOST A PARTY
It was hilarious and fun especially Raisin being full of himself Granny K being so old and Cheery being all so annoyingly happy my girls loved them Those parts were very fun we love this and hope we can do it again.
Everyone enjoyed dressing the part for this game. The characters were great! We served smoked baloney, crackers, and squirt cheese as appetizers. Decorations were easy, as I just hung a clothes line with boxer shorts and rags. I used random old table cloths and served chili for dinner. We had a chinese gift exchange, spam carving contest. The coveted chinese gift was a real stuffed squirrel, and the prizes for the spam carving contest was a can of fix a flat and a bottle of Bones Farm wine. BTW the spam carving contest was a HOOT! Loved this game!
I have hosted many fun murder mystery parties but Trailer Trash Tragedy has been the most hilarious! First of all,the pressure is off because there's no heavy duty cleaning or food preparation for this theme. We decorated the garage and house with a clothes line filled with trashy clothes, a mounted singing deer, beer can lights,and whoopie cushions, just to mention a few things. The characters in this party had very colorful personalities which allowed our guests to really get into costume and have fun with their parts. The gift exchange was hoot! The only thing I would suggest changing is to start serving the appetizers during the gift exchange because it is otherwise a long time to wait to eat. A great time was had by all!!
This game was so much fun, even for us older kids! We were 14-15, and everyone got into their characters anyways! Make sure to make guests dress up, everyone had awesome costumes, and we had a costume contest. Lots of laughs, a really great game.
We played this game a few days before Christmas and my friends had a blast! We all got into our parts and enjoyed the characters that had accents or props or subtle corks to em. I cannot wait for my next murder mystery! It's best played with all characters represented.
We had so much fun playing this game. It was easy to stay in character and the guests really amped up the fun qualities of each person they played. Tons of fun. Also - I had made a mistake with my order and it was resolved IMMEDIATELY which was wonderful. Great customer service. Thank you!
This was a fantastic game. Everyone had a really great time coming up with fun costumes and they loved playing their part. No one knew who the killer was until the end and it was a suprise for everyone! We will be playing another game in the future!!
We really enjoyed "Spooky Hollow Horror." It was a fun Halloween themed game. Very easy to play and the personalities in this game are a riot. It's very easy to plan this party. A creepy buffet worked out great for us. And decorating is simple. Just decorate as you would for any Halloween event. The costumes are easy to create. As with many of the games by this author, make sure your players are very outgoing and like to role play their characters. This makes the game so much more fun. The character background gives you tips on how to act like your character and if your guests let loose and go for it, it makes for a laugh out loud night. The "vampire" discussing bloody operations to everyone he chats with or the "ghost" who enjoys scaring the "over-frightened" guest. It worked out great. Also, if the host prepares ahead of time, like instructed to, you can create a crime scene and make things seem more "real" for your guests. Also, this game is very light-hearted and it's not for puzzle solvers or people looking for an in-depth mystery. The game is more fun to simply be played and enjoy. There is a crime and the clues are there, but make the solving of the crime only part of the fun. There's also additional ideas for extra games to help keep the evening moving along. My guests had a great time, loved the characters and we just had a great Halloween night of laughs.
I bought The Psycho Circus because the characters seemed great and the ability to customise was fantastic as I could add characters to expand out the invite list (always too hard to choose!) The party went really well with fantastic characters and great plot twists. Some of the writing was a bit inconsistent with some fantastic bawdy double entendres to start with but not so many later, but massive amounts of fun were had by all! Thanks
This game was unique because it had riddles to solve and a treasure hunt. The characters were a pretty diverse group and all had a motive. It gave my guests the opportunity to dress up and play with props. We decorated the room as the inside of a temple with candles, painted masks and torches. Everyone brought a dish to share. We laughed alot and the ending was a surprise that everyone enjoyed.
It was lots of fun, this was the first time we had hosted a murder mystery. It was a spectacular evening, everyone came in costume and stayed in their character roles all evening. Our friends are still talking about what a great event is was. The game materials and costume hint lists were very helpful and useful. It made for a very pleasant well organized event. The instructions were easy to follow and set up was fairly simple. Thank you for a great event planner. We are looking forward to hosting another murder mystery evening soon.

This was my fourth mystery from host-party. It was a blast! The characters were good and the story was funny. We had plenty of laughs. It was good a good length (8 rounds) and nobody guessed correctly who did it!
We had a blast dressing up for our parts and trying our hardest to talk in an English accent. To ham it up, I always do a 'confessional room' about 2/3rds the way through, where each person goes in a room and tapes themselves discussing who they think the killer is and why. Then I usually add another question or game for them to say in front of the camera as well. What I did this year was find some mad-libs and asked that they all stay in character with the accent and read the mad-libs. Then we watch it before the final round to see who was right. It was so funny!
These games are great - even some of my more shy friends really get into it and we look forward to doing a mystery every year! I host this party with a group of girls, so some people just play the male characters and dress the part. Everyone has a great time :) I look forward to these mysteries every year and start planning months ahead because I get so excited! If you've never done one, know that they are usually about 120 pages and you have to print it off and cut the clues out. I always have my husband (who doesn't attend the party) cut out the last two rounds so that I don't see who the murderer is. I usually make food and drinks to match the theme - like with this one I foudn Pimm's liquor to make cocktails and made tarts and sausuage rolls.
I look for reviews on games that talk about peopel having fun and laughing a lot, becuase I want the group to be silly and relaxed...and this particular game really fit the bill!
I changed the script somewhat to a local college and football team and used the actual name of familiar players and coaches. The group was a diverse college age and they supprising all entered into character easily, and dressed the part. The only downfall was that they became so consumed with their parts and the plot that they didn't want to take time to eat the various courses of meals. It was quite a hit!
We love the murder mysteries at Host-Party. The Masthead Mutiny is a shorter party with an attempted murder which is great for the younger age group. Everyone had fun playing a pirate and interacting with the rest of the crew. I love the fact that everyone is a suspect and has equal opportunity to solve the crime. We are already planning the next Who Dunnit? Savvy?
Great theme, and group of 14 teenagers (ages 13 to 17), all enjoyed it. One problem is the clues are hard to read aloud, as the girls kept getting confused when accusing someone, the clues would say "you" and the girls were not sure if "you" meant them or the person they were accusing. Would be better if the clues are written, so they could be read aloud by the guests as they are written. The theme meant the costumes were all fabulous and really helped create the theme. We did up our back deck to look like a circus tent using plastic tablecloths from the $2 shop, with fairy lights making it bright and colourful.
What a great way to celebrate an occassion. Our guests all enjoyed the opportunity to dress up play the allocated roles. The game strategy was pretty straight forward and easy to follow. It allow plenty of room for ablibing. The actual killer at the end of the game is a little hard to determine or not particularly definate so it leaves you a little wanting. The finger print analyser is also a good addition to the games. Thanks for a good fun game.
We hosted "Deadly Ever After" for my daughter's 21st birthday. It was a blast; everyone loved this party game. It's the third murder mystery game I have done and I think it was by far the best. The fact that the character Sherlock holmes was able to ask questions and pull everything together helped; as well as the fact that I didn't play myself. I took care of preparing & serving the dinner and whatever else was needed to make things run smoother. I know most people who put one of these on want to be involved, but it justs works better for me to focus on things running smoothly and not try to play also. I still had alot of fun.
We held this party for 7 girls for a 14 year old birthday party. It was SO much fun! I was sorry that I waited until the last minute to organize the clues, although that is just because I didn't like feeling "rushed". We served the dinner in "courses" and played the rounds of clues around the table. That worked great! We also made "ribbon wands" as a craft/party favor which was also a hit. NOT ONE of them guessed the murderer, which was a surprise to me, but is indicative of a well-written storyline and a variety of clues. It was such a hit, that little sister wants a Murder Mystery Party for her friends in a few weeks!
It was a lot of fun. Lots of clues and work putting them together. I think I would print the clues first go through them and then set rest of party up.
I had a great time with Choco Channill. I ended up preparing a home made movie on my webcam computer. It was hilarious.
Everybody got involved and asked lots of questions. The help I received from support was absolutely fantastic as well. Thank you for all your efforts.
