For older kids and teens, there is Love Potion Number Five.
It’s everybody’s worst nightmare: somebody has spiked the party punch with a potent love potion.
Thankfully, the victims of the potion are not declaring undying love for anybody at the party. Instead, they are emphatically revealing the thing they would most love to do -- their secret passion.
Soon these comical admissions become dangerous as the affected guests stop at nothing to act on their obsession. The guests must discover who spiked the punch, concoct and administer the antidote before somebody bruises something worse than an ego!
A party perfect for any combination of girls and boys, up to 16 guests can play a character. Follow this link, Love Potion Number Five, for more information about this party, or this link, List of Characters in Love Potion Number Five, for character information. This mystery party is rated E.
