Murder at the Yule Ball

Murder at the Yule Ball


A themed murder mystery party game, written and designed as a cohesive kit. Included are invitations, character booklets and rules, a guide for the party host, game money, an evidence folder, nametags, and awards for guests. The kit was also created with a set of digital PDFs for easy at-home printing.

The game is playable by 7-15 guests, who are each assigned a character to play during the party. The theme of the party is Yule Ball, and the story and characters are based on J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter characters, although the story takes place after the end of the Harry Potter series and focuses on Harry's children.

Below are images showcasing individual elements of the kit.


These images also feature moments from the actual event, for which I designed glittery winter table settings, snowy decor, photo booth props, and a blue-and-white-themed menu.
