Reasons to PARTY!!!

With all of the holiday buzz wearing off, and New Years resolutions waning, we thought we would spark your creativity with a few reasons to party this year.

I mean, who wants to throw the same old party?
Not only are the mystery themes intriguing, but throw them when for a “reason” no one else thought of. How about Murder Among the Mateys for “Talk Like A Pirate Day” (September 19th) or Murder in Margaritaland to celebrate the Summer Solstice (June 21st)? Want to throw a party you already have decorations for – how about Ho Ho Homicide for “Christmas in July”. Not only will the theme excite your guests, but you are taking your creativity to a whole other level!

Haven't convinced you yet? Here is a whole year's worth of reasons to celebrate!


Had enough of the winter blues?
Throw Murder in Margaritaland – an instant cure!

Doldrums of winter?
Murder in Margaritaland doubles as the perfect party ot get you in the mood for summer…. Even if it happens to be the dead of WINTER!

Have a work party you want to spice up? Any of our mysteries will work great (although we may suggest a “clean” one, so you don’t get in trouble with HR).
  • Keep your guests from talking about work, or worse, work gossip
  • Promotes mingling between coworkers and spouses
  • Builds morale
  • Not just “another company party”

A Class Reunion. This may be a little obvious, but Murder High Reunion can have you reminiscing about your old memories by creating new ones at the same time!

A special teen birthday party or event. Our clean and teen selection has been wildly popular with youth and conservative groups. We suggest these themes to help keep our youth off the streets and into something fun and productive… or just to help your teen feel extra-special on their special day. Check them out here.

So, there you have it. More reasons than you ever thought of why YOU should plan your next party... one that will be like NO OTHER!!!
