Is it possible that we're into June already? Summer is officially just around the corner and that means golf outings, backyard barbecues, and the perfect opportunity to plan a murder ... a murder mystery party, that is! Here are some popular suggestions (but our Mystery Party pages have many, many more).
Welcome to the Neighborhood. Ricki Mortis is beginning to realize why he purchased his new home for a song: his neighbors are loony. In the four months he's lived there, he's been accused of stealing lawn ornaments, soliciting foolish relationships, disregarding town building code, and murdering a beloved family pet. Whether or not he is guilty of these crimes remains to be solved. Nevertheless, the damage is done: The neighbors hate him. In an effort to mend fences and reverse bad first impressions, Ricki invites the neighbors to a good, old-fashioned backyard barbecue. But when the guests arrive, Ricki Mortis is dead.
Time to call the cops? Well that wouldn't be any fun! Someone's got the brilliant idea to fire up the grill and transform the BBQ into a murder mystery party. The result is a night filled with cooky characters, lots of laughs, and one unforgettable whodunit.
This party, which is especially suited for outdoor entertaining, is designed for 9 to 12 guests, ages 13 and older. It is rated T. Follow this link, Welcome to the Neighborhood, for more information about this party.
Caddy Shacked. This party banquet takes place at the Snobwood Country Club where the members and employees have gathered to celebrate the winners and distribute the awards for the 38th Annual Club Golf Championship.

His body was found right before the party, floating in the pond next to the caddy's shack. The victim, an idol to some and a despicable character to others, apparently created an enemy that ended his career. The victim’s death will now be examined by the invited guests of Snobwood to determine who clubbed the champion.
The Snobwood Country Club is the setting for this murder mystery game for 8-14 players. Who, at this fashionable establishment, clubbed the champion?

Now the radio has been misplaced by one of the castaways. Or, is somebody intentionally sabotaging attempts of rescue? Who would take the radio, and why? To make matters worse, they discover that the island doesn’t have enough water for everybody. It’s up to the passengers to find the missing radio before the water is gone, and all hope of rescue is gone.
