How it works:

Then don’t panic!

Hosting a themed mystery party isn’t too time consuming, and with ample preparation and help of a few adults prepared to act the part it is really quite simple and great fun!

This game does not require the children to play a part. Instead they work as a group to try and solve the mystery presented to them by the hosting adult through a series of games. There is no murder involved – just a mystery, in this case some missing make-up.

To run this game you need a minimum of one adult to take the part of mystery facilitator and at least one other adult helper. The facilitator should be prepared to do a little acting, but rote learning of script is not required.

Each “download and print at home” kit is provided as a zip file containing a set of PDF files for you to print at home.

Each game requires use of a printer and A4 paper (approx. 80 sheets for a children’s kit), and envelopes so you can send out your invitations.  It is expected you’ll create your own props as needed by the games (these aren’t complicated) and make amendments to printed elements to personalize them to your party.

When you order the game you’ll be sent a link to download the files you need.  The file will be a zip file.  This can be opened with a zip compatible program on your computer.  If you struggle to open zip files – we can email you the game directly over several emails instead – just contact us after purchase to arrange this.

We usually recommend purchasing a downloadable copy of the children’s mystery kits – if you decide you’d rather have us print a copy for you – you can ring up and upgrade to a printed set.

You will download the following files:

  • How to use this game
  • Instructions for running the murder mystery
  • Ideas for decoration / activities.
  • Invitations
  • Recipe suggestions
  • Money off voucher towards next purchase

This is the easiest way to play.  Everything you need will arrive in a box, pre-printed, directly to your door.

You will receive through the post:

  • Instruction booklet includes all the mystery games, recipe suggestions, theming ideas and extra party games.
  • Invitations and envelopes x 15
  • CD
  • Money off voucher towards next purchase (printed inside the instruction booklet)

We always ship within 24 hours meaning orders arrive as quickly as possible.

As each game is printed on demand, we can also provide a customisation service on any order.  See details further down the page on what we can do to tailor this game to your party.
