  1. Happy Customer

    My first time of using a scripted party plan, and it worked so well, lots of ideas to get busy making in preparation so when it came to party time, our house looked truly magical, used most of the ideas suggested food and decor.”The most awesome Party ever” I qoute from one of the pirate crew when he returned home to his parents. Clear and thorough instruction of all games, made our two hour party an absolute joy to host for our 8 year old. Thank you for sourcing such talented writers. I could not have done this on my own, yet I shall have children ever grateful for their wonderful time had at this party.

How it works:

Never run a themed mystery party before? 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 a missing cooking pot.

To run this game you need a minimum of two adults who will play the Pirate Peg or Pog (male or female ) and Captain Greybeard (male or female!). Both should be prepared to do a little acting, but rote learning of scripts is not required.

This game is written for home use.

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.  You may need a laptop or MP3 player (e.g. an ipod) to play a sound effect OR a CD burner so you can burn the MP3s onto a CD to run in an ordinary CD player.

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
  • MP3 file
  • 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.
