How long will it take to orchestrate the mystery?

This mystery is designed to be an evening's entertainment and the focal point of your event. Give yourself two to three hours to stage it. (Based upon the number of suspects.)


How many people can participate in this mystery?

From six to 100 people can comfortably participate in the investigation with the expanded kit.


Does everyone have a role?

The plot includes six or 10 suspects AND an undercover detective to lead the investigation. (The undercover detective is optional. The instructions tell you how you can hold the party for ONLY six or 10 people.) These individuals are the only ones with assigned roles. Everyone else becomes a sleuth who uses effective investigative techniques to figure out the intricacies of the crime. Since the guilty party doesn't know who did it, everyone can attempt to solve the case.
