Aloha and welcome to the Make Kaka resort, a luxurious Hawaiian resort where guests can enjoy drinks and dinner in the open air Tiki Bar, private surfing lessons with the resident surfing instructor Keanu and authentic Polynesian music and dancing shows each evening on the stage. The private beach offers a tranquil place for relaxation, which is where The Hula Hut, a small open-air hut selling hula dolls, is located. But when one of the owners of The Hula Hut is found dead, killed with a coconut behind the hut, guests and staff alike suddenly find themselves suspects in a murder investigation! Question the suspects, piece together the clues and solve the mystery – the killer could be YOU!

This mystery has murder and is rated 3/5 on the “clean” scale. It is a “murder” mystery with mentions of drugs and a reference to a sexual encounter. While both of these plot points are handled with Shot In The Dark Mysteries’ usual tactful style and class, A Hawaiian Homicide could offend conservative audiences. As with all of our mysteries, there is no foul language.

Reviews for A Hawaiian Homicide Murder Mystery Party

Two days after the disco party and my guests are already asking for mystery #3. Thank you so much for everything. And for indulging me and letting me send you pictures! (Played Murder at Studio Paradise, The AdMan Murder and The Sly Mr. Foxx)
Seriously can’t thank you guys enough! I purchased my first mystery and it will not be my last! Shot in the Dark made everything so easy! The files were clear and easy to use. I LOVE that myself as the host was able to play “spoiler free”! We had 19 total people for the Hawaiian Homicide (9 men 9 women and an alternate expansion character) and it was a blast! The characters were complex, the story line was easy to follow without being easy to solve. There were so many moving parts in this mystery! At the end about 5 of our detective we’re able to solve. I couldn’t be happier I found you guys, can’t wait to play our next mingle mystery through Shot In The Dark!!!
I wanted you to know that we had an awesome time with the Hawaiian Homicide Mystery for my daughters 16th birthday.

I have since ordered another mystery for a group of ladies at work to enjoy. It won’t be until April, but, we are having fun planning it. We picked the Murder at the Winery so it should be lots of fun too.

I’ve also had another party goer order one for her 11 year olds upcoming October party because she absolutely had a blast! Basically—-your mysteries are awesome!!
