A Few of Our 190+ Reviews

(4.9+ star average; 175+ of these reviews are 5 stars.)

"What a swell murder mystery game this was! Great characters and a thoroughly entertaining script. We had lots of fun attempting the accents (with varying degrees of success). As usual with Maple Mystery Games, instructions were easy to follow and the outcome was well crafted into the dialogue. Unlike many such games, the clues are there to spot the murderer (even though I didn’t). Absolutely spiffing fun."


"So much fun! I’ve done the 1990s and 1920s one, with work colleagues and friends – both fantastic. Lots of thought into the packs and extras and such good value for money. Would highly recommend sending the packs to people a few days before like the instructions say – gives everyone lots of time to get into character. FIVE STARS all round."


"We had loads of fun playing this Swinging Sixties mystery! All the characters were inclusive and funny, and everyone had a great time trying to guess who the murderer was. Lots of twists and turns, and the reveal when we played the audio file had a great effect. You can tell the authors really put a lot of thought and effort into this and it pays off!"


"Bought this to host a virtual murder evening ... everyone agreed this was by far the most fun they’d had during lockdown and was great to find something that all ages could get involved with. Was so chuffed with how much everyone got involved. Was very easy to set up and organise and  ... recommended to other friends and family to give it a go!"


"As someone who writes mystery games myself, I was really impressed with this one. I bought the Swinging Sixties mystery for my Dad’s 60th, which led to a very entertaining night. The characters were fun, the motives were believable and the final reveal was satisfying (even though I guessed wrong!) I would definitely buy from Maple Mystery Games again."


"Just finished celebrating my 60th birthday. Was so fabulous to share the occasion with a Zoom virtual maple mystery. You saved my birthday celebrations! Even though many of my friends spend all day on Zoom or similar meetings, they so enjoyed this social time. I could join in fully and be part of the experience.

Well written, good clues, plenty of additional decorations and support. Will certainly recommend and hope to purchase more in the future."
