Murder Mystery

To throw a truly killer party this Halloween, plan on doing it who-done-it murder mystery style. Crunched for time? Buy a boxed version of the game. Feeling creative? You and your family or friends can write your own story. Pick your setting: a library, a castle, a family reunion -- and assign each guest a character. Sleuthing ensues but mum's the word on the murderer -- even the murderer doesn't know who did it until the very end.

Hosting a party for kids? Change the murder mystery to a Halloween-themed scavenger hunt.
