A joint party is being held at Thornbury's Chocolates to launch the new range of Symphony Chocolates and also to celebrate the 40th birthday party of Shopin Channill (That's pronounced Show-pan) who is the daughter of Thornbury's owner Cocoa Channill. What could possibly go wrong on such a happy nig...
OH MY! We had so much fun with this Murder Mystery. To my amazement nobody guessed who the killer was. Everyone enjoyed the evening and remained in character for the almost 4 hours it took us to get through it all. Time was not an issue for us as we had rented a house and were staying there for the weekend. I went to the work and created 12 different kinds of chocolates and had them displayed on 'silver trays' (cardboard with tin-foil on it) with name tags of the chocolates. I served a Milky-Way Martini to everyone as they arrived. I opted to make Lasagna instead of the pot roast that was suggested, this way I didn't have to worry about any cooking while we were playing. We were all so full that we didn't even get to the chocolates that were made. We will be doing another one next year. Make sure if you do not use the additional characters that you remove their clues from the others and substitute those clues for something else. I didn't want to know who the killer was so I didn't read any of the clues ahead of time. I think next time I will. I would recommend this Murder Mystery to any group of friends that want to have a great time and have a wonderful imagination to get into 'character'.Stacy U. - Findlay Lake, NY
The game was super fun. Really easy to follow and not complicated at all. Everyone had a great time eating chocolate and just hanging out. As the host I did read the cards before hand and I think it's better that way so you know how the game turns out. Even though I knew the ending, I still went along with it and had a great time. Nobody guessed who the nurderer was which was fun in the end. All and all, a great game to play with your group of girlfriends.Kayla - Vancouver, Canada
I really like the Death by Chocolate so did my mom!!!Brittany L. - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
Death by Chocolate was a define success as a girls'' night you will never forget. It was priceless! The only problem we had was not realizing that we needed about 3 1/2 hours and not the 2 we originally planned for. I would definetly recommend this site for others who enjoy mureder mystery games as it is easy to adapt the game you order for your groups of friends. As a host I was able to adapt the suggested props and costumes.The site makes it very easy to communicate with the guests.Michelle H. - Chelsea, AL
My Extension Homemakers club played this game and we laughed so hard. I gave each one a bag filled with the clues and an ink pen and note cards. I used a yellow and black color theme and everyone had a great time.Jennifer - , Kentucky
I had a good time. I have seen these mystery parties on TV. You did a wonderful job to plan and put all the paperwork together. A good time was had by all. MaryMary C. - ODESSA TX
This was so much fun! But...... Be sure you read the clues in advance and organize them for your guests! Also, be prepared in case some of your guest are "no shows". I ended up playing 3 parts. It was fun, but a little confusing when asking the questions as to which character was asking them. All in all, it was great fun!Terri M. - Odessa, Tx
