Welcome, to Hyades School for Wizards! This castle, hidden high in the mountains, is the place for young wizards and witches to learn to use their magical powers. Recently, Hyades School for Wizards has become the temporary home of The Wands of Procyon – two wands so powerful they are said to have been used to form a hidden galaxy! But when the Wands of Procyon are stolen from their display case, magic is used to see who was in the Torchwood Room, where the wands were displayed, around the time of the theft. Suddenly some of Hyades School for Wizards’ best students find themselves suspects in a theft! Secrets abound and not everyone is who they seem in this mystery designed for literature and magic-loving kids and adults!

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!!
