Case Synopsis

“I remain just one thing, and one thing only, and that is a clown. It places me on a far higher plane than any politician.” - Charlie Chaplin 

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… the new mayoral candidate soaring through the air, straight into Pirate Poppy’s Popcorn Stand. And now chaos has landed in the carnival… 


 

Due to a profound corruption scandal, the District Attorney has given the Global Detective Agency temporary jurisdiction and oversight of the LAPD. And so -- in need of more gumshoes on the ground -- they are looking to recruit a large number of probationary cautionary auxiliary investigators. That would be you.

You must figure out who is behind it is all - before you yourself become La-La Land’s next high-flying victim. The package sent to you will contain all the resources you need to carve your path around the park, interrogate suspects, and solve the murder. 

There are conniving forces working in the shadows of this seemingly innocent amusement park. Keep your head down, your ears perked up, and remember: Our eyes never sleep.

Read the frequently asked questions.

Awesome!

I ordered this and had it shipped to my brother as a birthday gift. When I received the initial email with information about the mystery I printed it and gave it to him with his other present, knowing that the actual package would not be arriving for at least a week. Both he and his wife were intrigued by it (they love hosting and attending murder mystery dinner parties). Fast forward to today, the package arrived at his door and his reaction to it (without even opening the box) was worth it! The only writing he could see on the package when he opened his front door was "Confidential" and "Post Mortem" his initial thought was he had been delivered a package that belonged to a neighbor and that it was some sort of remains, or a product made from the cremated remains of a pet or loved one. Then he realized that it was, in fact, addressed to him. He is a very smart man (has a degree in both engineering and medicine, and unlike many these days was also blessed with common sense). This being said, it made the fact that he freaked out a little so much more entertaining. It finally dawned on him that it was his mystery birthday gift. We did a video chat while he opened the box and we were both extremely surprised at the quality and detail of the contents. He won't actually be solving the mystery until this weekend when both he and his wife have time to commit to it, but we can already tell that it is going to be a great experience. Without even seeing the actual…

Fantastic Family Activity

We enjoyed this immensely. We have a 15-year old and a 12-year old, and they both did great. We opted to do the mystery in 2 sittings--we started one night, got tired after an hour or so, and then continued the following afternoon to complete the mystery. The set up lent itself to taking it in stages like that. Really fun. Well designed. Won't be long before we order another!

LaLa Land

We really had a great time playing this game! We took our time and followed all of the clues and let the story take us along. It made us forget the horrible pandemic and awfulness happening in the world for hours...which is no easy feat. Thank you Mysterious Game Company!
