I cannot recommend this enough! This is an absolutely fantastic Jane Austen Murder Mystery Game. We did this as a girl's night for a friend's 60th birthday. It was such a fun and easy event to plan thanks to all the details provided. We knew exactly what to wear and what to say. We did this as a 4 course dinner with each guest providing one component of the dinner which made the job of hosting a breeze. It was also a great chance to dust off some old silver, crystal and china pieces that were hidden in the cabinets. We will definitely be putting another of your murder mysteries on our calendar soon!

I can’t express how much fun this game was! We had a micro wedding over Halloween and chose to use the Jane Austen Murder Mystery game during the dinner. It was so fun to have our immediate families playing the roles. The extras were also great. We didn’t have to worry about making name plates AND got some fun certificates too! Looking forward to using our next game from you on zoom with friends across the US!

The party was great! Everyone came in costume, and the scene was set just
right for Satis House. The food excellent and everyone had an awesome time!!! My guests are still talking about it and when asked, everyone said they would love to do more of your mysteries. Thank you for providing such excellent material – so professional. First printable game I’ve used that was as good a quality as the boxed versions. I’m so happy I found your site!

Excellent murder mystery game! Looks a lot like the How to Host a Murder boxed games, except this one is all for Jane Austen fans! I was very impressed with all the many things the download included. There’s even a 25 song playlist attached as mp3 files to set the mood!

My family and I had a really great time playing this murder mystery. We're a family of Austen fans, so we had high expectations! As there were 5 of us, we doubled up on roles, which added a fun, challenging extra element. The instructions were comprehensive, and the materials included were really great. The mystery plot itself was well thought out, and we all really enjoyed the process of playing the game & guessing whodunnit (only one of us guessed correctly, but we all had good theories)! We'd definitely like to try another of your murder mystery games in the future.
