This murder mystery takes place on a very private, very secretive island, and is the perfect mystery party game for any scenario. It’s the perfect summer mystery game, and whether you throw the mystery party while lakeside (or just wishing you were), it’s a summer murder mystery game kit that will make your party one your guests will never forget!

For generations, Brizo Island has been a place of legend, with talk of shipwrecks, ghost crews and even sunken treasure. These legends stemmed from unexplained shipwrecks in even the most mild weather conditions, and have earned the passage a reputation of being akin to the Bermuda Triangle – and the name “Sirens Pass”. The island itself was founded by a group of families, referred to as The Founders, at the turn of the twentieth century, and the heirs of these founding families own the residences and cottages on Brizo Island today. Each year, the islanders throw a private regatta, with all sorts of enjoyment and boat races. Yesterday, the races had to be postponed as the chop was so fierce it sunk one of the boats! This morning, all eyes were on the bay as everyone waited to see if the regatta could continue. But when a body was found in the bay, the regatta is postponed indefinitely as the residents of Brizo Island suddenly find themselves suspects in a private murder investigation! No one wants mainland law enforcement stumbling on their secrets, so it’s up to all of them, suspects or not, to get to the bottom of the murder!

This mystery is a 4/5 on the Angel Rating Scale. While it does contain a murder plot, there are no mentions of drugs, sex or alcohol, and is suitable for most attendees.

Great time! This was our second murder mystery party and it generates huge fanfare each time. The mysteries are set up to be challenging but not overly challenging and its great that everyone can participate without knowing who the killer is beforehand! This company is great to work with and is always accommodating to questions.

The best party – EVER! Shot in the Dark Mysteries made the planning so easy that we could focus on making our basement look like an 80s prom. Our theme was “Chiller Thriller” and we had a blast decorating. Every person that came said they had so much fun and wanted to host their own parties. The idea that no knows who the killer is works so well. Thanks Shot in the Dark Mysteries for providing an easy, fabulous way to have fun with friends!

I love Shot in the Dark mysteries! They made so many of our parties (birthdays, new years, just because!) extra special by getting our friends engaged in solving the crimes! They’re such a great value, and even our friends that aren’t extroverts can get into being a character and sleuthing. I also love that I am able to host and participate in the murder mystery! So much fun!!
