Murder in Margaritaland - New Years Eve Edition

A Night of Crime and Chaos in the Caribbean as you Countdown till Midnight!


Somewhere in the tropics between the Port of Indecision and Southwest 
of Disorder you'll find that murder meets mayhem and the intrigue begins!


While most ring in the New Year at Margaritaland, an exclusive tropical resort, to get away
from their troubles, for one unfortunate soul, it will mean the end of their travels all together.

Has the lottery winner's luck run out? Will it be the bartender who has served his last drink?
Is the honeymoon over for two lovebirds before it nearly began? 
Or will the stars collide for one Hollywood star?

At the resort, the guilty will mingle among the guests and everyone will be
left with the task of deciphering between the facts and falsehoods that plague
this paradise in order to make a killer pay for their crime before the clock strikes 12.

Get ready for a New Years Eve that will have you searching for
much more than your long lost shaker of salt.



This mystery can be played outdoors or in!

During the long winter months, this party is great for curing the winter blues!
