Why Night Of Mystery
With their mix-and-mingle format, you will find that there are no scripts or pencils needed. There are also no side games and/or complicated processes. The best part of all is there is a “real live murder” at the party! The murder is solved by mingling and sleuthing, allowing everyone to participate fully to the extent that they feel comfortable doing so. This sets the stage for much spontaneity and ensures every party is kept lively! The host even gets to participate!
The materials in this murder mystery party kit are set up to be simple and direct for the host to have a successful party without additional stress.
Night Of Mystery understands that when you are planning a mystery, you want to give your guests the ultimate experience. Each kit is filled with ideas on how to host, what to serve, and how to make your party an over-the-top adventure. If you are still needing assistance, they also provide web resources where you can find costumes, decorations, and more. You are striving to throw a party to remember and Night Of Mystery will give you all the tools you need to do that.
How To Play A Night Of Mystery Game
1. Invite Your Guests
You will want to see how many guests can make it to your party before ordering your kit. Available kits range from 6 players to 20 plus players so they are able to accommodate groups of all sizes.
2. Download And Print Your Murder Mystery Kit
To make the murder mystery kits more affordable, Night Of Mystery provides a link to download your kit. You, as the host can, choose to print out the material you need and/or email your guests their character descriptions and invitations. When printing, Night Of Mystery makes extra certain you understand what you can and can’t see, so as the host you can still join in on the fun without any spoilers.
***There is also an option to do your murder mystery party completely virtual if that’s the route you’re looking to go!
3. Guests Arrive At The Party In Character
Each guest receives a detailed character description in their invitation along with some background information on the party.
4. Host Reads An Introduction To The Party
This explains how the night is to proceed.
5. Guests Receive Information With Objectives
Now is the time for your guests to start mingling and completing their objectives by verbally communicating with each other and playing the part they’ve been given.
6. A Murder Occurs!
Once guests arrive and you give them their objective sheet, the victim will then find out that they will be the one that will have to fake their death. Don’t worry, the victim will still have a part in the party after their “death”. They become a whole new character as the lead investigator!
7. Investigator Reads A Synopsis Of How To Proceed
Guests receive more information, clues, and objectives and continue mingling and playing their part as the party continues.
8. Investigator Presents Evidence
Once all guests have completed their objectives, they will then have a chance to review evidence before making any final accusations.
9. Host Hands Out Accusation Sheets
This is when everyone gets to guess who they think the murderer is and get to cast votes for best dressed, best acting, etc.
10. Murderer Is Revealed!
The investigator will read the explanation and the host will hand out awards to the vote winners.
That’s it! No pencils, no scripts, no complicated process. Just a great night of fun with friends, family, co-workers, or whoever you invite.
There are different party versions such as an adult version, a clean version, a teen version, a kids version, etc. Night Of Mystery also provides different murder mystery themes that are all written in-house to assure their authenticity and uniqueness.
Totally Rad 80s Prom Gone Bad Murder Mystery Kit Review
For my murder mystery dinner party, I chose Night Of Mystery’s Totally Rad 80s Prom Gone Bad Murder Mystery Kit. The storyline was intriguing and I felt that each of my guests had their own story to tell. For decorations, I was able to keep it simple with balloons, streamers, and of course 80’s music playing! We did also have some fun lights that really made the scene extra fun. All of my guests were able to get their costumes at a second-hand store or borrowed from friends and family.
The downloadable link was easy to navigate and the instructions were very clear on what my duties as the host were. I also LOVE that I was able to participate! Night Of Mystery had the downloadable file set up so that I knew exactly what I could and couldn’t look at to be sure I didn’t spoil the mystery for myself.
The kit had a lot of ideas on decorations I could use, costumes my guests and myself could wear, food that could be served to fit the theme, and web resources to find these materials. Night Of Mystery makes it foolproof and the party could not have gone better.
I loved every minute of the party. I took some great photos to remember the night and I can’t wait to host another one in the future with Night Of Mystery!
