  4. Detective Kits: Provide detective kits for your guests, including magnifying glasses, notepads, and detective badges.


Invitations that Intrigue:

  1. Mystery Letters: Send out personalized invitations written as mysterious letters from the game's characters, urging guests to join the investigation.

  2. Cryptic Clues: Send a series of cryptic text messages or emails that guests must decipher to reveal the party details.

  3. Mall Map Invites: Design your invitations to resemble a mall map, with important event details hidden among the "stores."

Mall Court

Party Food and Drinks:

  3. Evidence Sharing: Implement a system for players to discreetly exchange evidence or secrets throughout the game.

  4. Twists and Turns: Add surprise events or twists during gameplay to keep everyone engaged and guessing.


Party Favors and Prizes:
