Feedback on fun games for teenagers and tweens

Tina Wong (a teacher)

Tina’s group used Mystery In The Library (see photo 1 above).

Tina sent in this feedback: “We had a fantastic time with our 8th grade middleschoolers. It was a bonding and team building time and this wonderful game brought incredible memories and fantastic anticipation for more of these mystery games to come. I had college kids help with cooking and decorations and now they’re asking when it’s their turn to play. Thank you for an unforgettable evening!!!

The kids and parents still talk about that “magical” evening!

Thank you very much!!

Feedback from teenagers / tweens parties

Candice Romines

Feedback on a Balmy Bahamas Cruise teen party:

“The party was a hit! We had been having trouble coming up with something for our son’s 11th birthday party. We have always been creative with Carl’s parties and a bit over the top (pokemon pool party, medieval birthday ball, private skating party with beyblade tournament and “10” trivia) so we were stumped. How can we downsize the party now that Carl is getting older, spend less, and still have a unique party. Well, you were the answer! I was amazed at how little effort it took on our part, and how much the kids got into the costumes and the mystery. AND how much fun I had, too. At first I thought it would be too difficult…well, they showed me. It was tough enough to keep them in the game, but not too challenging that they couldn’t have fun with it.

It was AWESOME! Thanks for your help!

Penny Sorensen (teenage party)

“I had a party just this past weekend for my daughters 14th birthday. It was a hit.

I almost died when the kids were walking through the door. I honestly never thought we would get people that were really into it. I mean a expected to come like the character suggestions, but not all out the way they did. We actually went and bought more prizes during the dinner because they went so far out.

These are 8th graders. We did the Balmy Bahamas Cruise. It was fun.”

Katie sent in this feedback on Poetic Justice (see photo 2 above).

“I would like to thank you for creating this wonderful party.

My friend and I planned the Poetic Justice party for my 18th birthday, and all of us had a blast! We went all out, with a bar full of virgin drinks that looked like the real thing, fake cigarettes that blew out smoke, a bartender, and authentic music from the 20s.

I am submitting a picture of the whole gang for the picture contest. That’s me in the middle, playing the part of Mae West. My friend, Rachael Logue, is the one who purchased the kit, and she is in the upper right hand corner, playing Lily Pad.

Once again, thank you for this awesome party idea, and we can NOT wait for our next one!

Lori Netsell, USA (youth group party)

“I just wanted to let you know that the youth really loved playing The Balmy Bahamas Cruise. Who would have thought that someone so “innocent” was the guilty one!

The kids had a “murderous” time.

Have a great day!

Sally sent in this feedback:

“The Balmy Bahamas Cruise was selected for our annual high school murder mystery dinner. They mystery was perfect. The location was a community center that we turned into a cruise ship. The dinner was held in the “Spanish Wells” dining room which served a Mexican fiesta buffet. So incredibly easy to plan and a terrific event for 45+ high school students! Thank you for making my job as coordinator so easy! “

Games for every taste!

Our Games Are Perfect For

Friends & Families

Because our kits are good clean fun, they can be used for 9 years upwards. There are no hidden innuendos, so no embarrassment just lots of laughs.

HobBy Detectives

We make our kits challenging but still solve-able. Even the host or the murderer can fully participate in working out who did it.


People find that when they assume a role, they lose some of their inhibitions and relax more easily. So it's a great way to get to know your co-workers.


Mystery games are great for fundraisers. You can charge people to participate, to play the suspects and also for special clues.
