Reviews for our classroom activities/games

Kids' Detective Mystery Game/Scavenger Hunt - Download NowI just wanted to let you know that the Catch Me If You Can game was great. I used it as a reading/following directions activity for my 6th grade class. It was a wonderful classroom activity. Thanks, Sharon Sweeney, Valley Falls KS

These classroom games are great! I teach a homeschool crime science class and the CSI game will be perfect for classroom use. It covers everything we have been studying. Thanks! Marla Lahrman, St. Joseph MI

Kids Scavenger Hunt GameLast Friday I was able to break out the Kovert Kids Scavenger Hunt and the Crime Scene Investigation game! I used the Kovert Kids for my morning session with 1-3rd graders. They absolutely had a ball. The baby picture section was my favorite. That’s such a wonderful idea! Thank you so much. CSI was used in my afternoon session with my 4th-6th graders. They were so excited to be a part of something so interactive and fun. I want to thank you for such educational and fun classroom activities. Heather Corcoran, Kids College Coordinator, Mt. Tech, Butte, MT

Medieval Knights Game for KidsI used your Medieval game last week at our after school program. The kids (mostly boys in grades 4-6) absolutely LOVED it. They even wanted to work more on their shields the day after! Thanks! Jan Brooks, Program Director, NECC After School Connection, North East Community Center, Millerton, NY 12546

TESTIMONIALS:

We just had our annual Aunts/Cousins weekend and I wanted to tell you that my family had a great time with Operation Our Town Scavenger Hunt. I have to say thank you, thank you, thank you. I’ve received nothing but praise from family and we have some awesome photo keepsakes from our weekend. We change each year on who is responsible for the fun and games and the group taking it on for next year and worried they cannot stand up to this one. I gave them your website to check out for ideas. – Christy Frederick, Saranac MI

THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH FOR YOUR SCAVENGER HUNT MATERIALS! My boss and all the hunt participants were THRILLED with the entire thing – start to finish! We had the best time! I am still receiving praising e-mails and thank you cards from everyone a week later! I am so lucky to have played a part in bringing them a fresh, unique way of interacting with each other!

1970’s Beauty School Murder Mystery Game

Rushmore’s Revenge Murder Mystery Game: A social for the 1979 graduating class of Rushmore’s Beauty Academy for Women.

1970's beauty school murder mystery game

ALL FEMALE CAST. This would also be fun for an all-male cast dressed in drag. We love to make the women English or Southern.

STORY: Changes are coming to the Rushmore Beauty Academy for Women – an institution where nothing has changed in its 80-year history. Bernice Rushmore, whose family founded the school, is resigning from the Board Of Regents and withdrawing her funding. As a result, men will now be admitted to the school to increase enrollment in the hopes of keeping the school afloat. Naturally, it’s all very upsetting. So we advise you to watch your back. It’s difficult to tell who is friend or foe with the future of this sacred institution at stake.

THE PLACE: Rushmore Beauty Academy for Women, Staffordshire, England (England is optional; a southern state in the U.S. is another option).

THE EVENT: A social for graduating class of 1979 (Alternatives: the 1950’s or modern day).

A TESTIMONIAL: “We successfully put on the production of Rushmore’s Revenge to an audience of 40. Nervous didn’t come into it ! However once we had started we had a great time. Many thanks for the privilege of performing. We really hope to do some more.” Maggie,  Bridlington, East Yorks, UK

P.S. “We are a group that belongs to U3a. It is a world wide organisation and there are over 90 odd interest groups of which drama is one.”

Order and download this or another of our fabulous murder mystery games now.  Make your event as memorable as Maggie’s was.

Our Old West Murder Mystery Game Is a Hit!

MURDER MYSTERY GAME REVIEW

We received this email from a customer who purchased our Old West murder mystery game complete with cowboy outlaws, a nun and uh, let’s call them “dance hall girls” (bein’ that we’re in polite company).

“The murder mystery dinner game was a hit!! Here’s our cast that played in your Bordello of the Damned Old West murder mystery game kit.  We had so much fun! We sold out at 72 plates served and they are begging for us to do this again!  Our cast is already looking at a couple of your murder mystery games for the next time because they are having too much fun. I told them not to look anywhere else cause you were the best!” – Tracy Robinson, Guthrie, KY.

MURDER MYSTERY GAME SYNOPSIS: The year is 1880. Jimmy Hayward rules this town. It once thrived and prospered when folks thought gold was in them thar hills. Them thar hills contained nothing but dirt and so the town lost not only its fortune but its fame and its population. Now Deadwood is just an occasional stagecoach stopover for folks moving on to better places. And the Leland Hotel and Saloon is a haven for outlaws (like yourselves) and it houses Madam Iggy’s, the best little whorehouse in the South Dakota. Consider it just another night in the old west, only this time it will more deadly than usual.

Note: You can change the name of this mystery to Dead in Deadwood AND you can have it be a dance hall & saloon instead of a bordello. The girls then become can-can girls and nickel a dance girls.

Two more reviews for this murder mystery game:

Bordello Old West murder mystery game“I would be honored if you would share my testimony to Red Hatters!! I’d be more than happy to let them know what fun we had with your mystery! Our Chapter purchased and put on your Bordello of the Damned. Our silly pictures won a prize on your website. I did want you to know that at least 3 other Queen Mum’s heard about our fun at the Leland Saloon and I have sent them a link to your site. I hope they have as much fun as we did!! In love and laughter.” –Queen Mum Erna, Red Hatted Rascals, Canada

Bordello Old West mystery game“I just wanted to tell everybody about our production of “Bordello Of The Damned”. We are a small amateur dramatic society and decided to look into a murder mystery evening for the first time ever. I found Haley Productions on the web and after checking out the story lines, we decided to go for “Bordello”. I’m pleased to tell you that it was a resounding success! The cast loved it, the chorus girls had a great time (especially as we allowed them to do a dance routine to “Lady Marmalade”!) and the audience had nothing but praise for us. … A lot of people dressed up for the occasion and after several drinks were had they threw themselves into it. I can say that we will certainly be looking to do another one in the future and would recommend it to any amateur actors as a way of improving your ad lib skills. Big thanks to Susan for all her help. I’ll be in touch soon for ‘Bordello Of The Damned Part 2 – Willy’s Revenge’!”  –Adam Kuhl from the other side of the pond.

FYI, you’ll find the above testimonials here.

REVIEWS:  

“The kids has a ball with Operation Catch Me If You Can. I had 11 7-8 year old girls and things moved smoothly. We never had a dull moment; the girls never had time to “click” like they tend to do sometimes. No one ever felt left out and in the end when they watched their skits they wanted to do more.”  – Shelly Husek, Sterling Heights, MI

“We did the hunt “Catch Me If You Can” for a schools out/summers here party and my boys (ages 9 & 10) and their friends LOVED it! They had sooooo much FUN! They loved being a detective and just having some good ol’ fun! We made some changes to the hunt to fit our needs and I can’t thank you enough. Each time I try one of your hunts they have been so easy to prepare, have had great creative ideas and are sooo much FUN! Thanks again.” –  J. Cummings, Shelley, ID
