In old day Britain, propriety is the real ruler. Welcome to Stirling Hall, home of Lord and Lady Westby, their family and servants, who are all bound by social expectation to play their “role”. As if the day-to-day running of the estate is not enough, Lord Westby has no son, and the grand house and all titles are set to be inherited by Ambrose Haines, a very distant relative. The family thought their problems were at an end upon the engagement of the Westby’s eldest daughter, Lady Lila Westby to the estate heir, Ambrose Haines. But when a woman is found dead in the estate, they quickly realize their problems are just beginning.

Who is the mysterious woman? What was she doing in Stirling Hall? How was she killed? And most importantly, who is her killer? Scandal must be avoided at all cost and it’s up to the Westbys and all those who reside in Stirling Hall to find the killer and preserve their good name!

The Mysterious Affair at Stirling Hall has been designed to be played as a Georgian or Victoria Era or murder mystery (think of these as a Jane Austen murder mystery party, for example), Regency (Think a Bridgerton murder mystery party game) or as an Edwardian Era murder mystery (more of a Downton Abbey themed murder mystery party).

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!!
