Terror In Transylvania

As the members of the haunting and haunted gather at the desolate Transylvania castle, this will be an evening away from mortals where the supernatural community can come together to celebrate and carouse!

During the night of spooktacular fun, one of the party-goers will end up in a grave they have dug for themselves. Desperate to avoid becoming victims themselves, the ghoulish guests will seek out the culprit in their midst.

Perhaps the murderer will be the bewitching witch with a cross to bear? A mollified mummy who needs to keep things under wraps? Or possibly a vindictive vampiress who was once bitten twice shy?

What lies ahead is a hauntingly complex night during which the spooky and the spirited collide to solve a mystery designed that will leave you spellbound.

  • All of the information regarding how to run your Terror in Transylvaniae party can be found online at Night of Mystery. We highly suggest that you take time to look over our website and download the Terror in Transylvania preview file. Upon reading the introduction file, it will give you a better understanding about how the parties are run and what to expect once you purchase a full mystery file.

    If you still have question, the Frequently Asked Questions page at Night of Mystery is a great resource or you can contact us.
  • Since our games are custom written for the size of the party (ie, we don’t just create a mystery with 8 characters and then keep adding more characters to it), each mystery size is unique unto itself. That being said, going from 10-15 version to 15-20 version, will not only add in more characters, but it will change the storylines of the existing characters, and vice-versa in going from a larger version to a smaller one.

    Because of this, WE STRONGLY SUGGEST you get a guest count before formally ordering. You can do so by downloading an invitation, inviting your guests and then purchasing your mystery once you have a more accurate number of people attending. Unfortunately, if you find yourself purchasing the wrong sized party, you will have to purchase another version of the mystery for the size you want unless you are moving from the 15-20 version to the 20+ version.
    You can download an invitation here before ordering.

  • Once you order, in your mystery packet you will receive directions and/or printables to make unique and original decorations specific to your party! Included will be:
