Hosting a Teenage Mystery
 
Peg Panter - 02:34pm Jan 20, 1998 PST

Hi, I'm new to all this. I attended an adult weekend Murder Mystery at a Bed and Breakfast and had a wonderful time. Everyone particapated and dressed in costume.

Now my teenage daughter wants me to write a mystery for her birthday. I have the setting "1950's sockhop" and the participants will include; cheerleader, jock, socialites (Muffy and Biff type), nerd, tuff guy, floozy, wallflower.

I was hoping that maybe someone would like to help me write it. Or give me some basic ideas on how to make it all happen. I guess what I'm asking for is HELP!

Thanks, Peg

I think animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Hi,

I have to agree with Jenner. I write home parties and until you've done a few, it's difficult to write one yourself and host.

Plus, if you write your own party, you won't be able to participate in the mystery. Buy a boxed set and play along - it'll be fun that way. :)

Help!!!!!! I need someone to tell me how to create a good mystery for 1-2 people that is fun for twelve year olds.

Nancy, 1-2 people for a mystery party? That'll never fly. The min. for a party is 6 and I'd personally never write one for less than 8.

What you are talking about is a book. Unless someone else has an idea? But what fun would it be for one person to do alone?

Can someone help me? I'm clueless! I'm 13 years old and want to plan a mystery birthday party. I found a kit on www.tailormademysteries.com but it was for all girls and I would like to at least INVITE two guys. If anyone has any ideas, I would like it to be for 8-12 people.

Some days I just want to be a MISSING PERSON

Eenie, have you tried looking at a store? They have some nice ones prepackaged you can buy at places like Target and WalMart. Or perhaps you can chage the names of a couple of the girl parts to make them guy names. I am sure if you are flexible on the he/she in the written language of the script you can do it. Good luck

Hey I am a 14 yr. old and for my Birthday, and my dad's (we did a comined thing) my mom and I wrote a mystery. All you have to do is make a problem (murder, theft.....) Then custom make characters or the people you invite! It didn't take that long! We looked for weeks to try to find a mystery in a box but couldn't find one that was appropriate for ages 16 down, just write your own, its really fun!!!
