    I was the person who was worried about the Queen’s Jewels party for my daughter’s birthday. You were right – the party was a lot of fun – and almost everyone figured out it was….So thank you for the fun time.

    The event was a huge success….we all had a lot of fun, and appreciate the “clean-ness” of your games. When we get the pictures developed, we’ll e-mail you a few–the costumes were great!…

    Thought I’d let you know that our Mystery Party (The Queens Jewels) was a success and enjoyed by adults and children alike (we had four families with children down to 9 years old). the man who played the fireman went to the local firehouse to get a red plastic hat…when the firemen found out why he needed it, they took him downstairs and outfitted him with a whole reserve fireman’s uniform. The Doctor put on an amusing trick flea act for us. Thanks for your work and for a family-friendly game! We’ll be back!

    Thanks very much for your help and understanding!

    We loved playing the game The Queen’s Jewels – I guess that’s obvious, since my younger daughter insisted on having it for her party too. Thank you for making it playable with all girls – the first time it was all 13-14 year-old girls, and this time it will be 11-12 year-olds, and at this point none of them want any part of having boys at their parties. (It’s amazing that all of the other mystery games I found for that age group require both genders, to the point where characters are actually supposed to be dating each other – can’t do THOSE with all girls without everyone being really uncomfortable.)

    Do you write these yourselves? If so, please keep it up! More stories for young teenage girls, please, so we have something to do for NEXT year’s parties (since this year is going to be hard to top)…
