Frequently Asked Questions
How cool is the app? And is it really free?
It’s super cool, but don’t take our word for it. Download it for FREE now at the App Store or Google Play and see for yourself. All of your guests can also download it for free before the party, which will save you a lot of preparation time and hassle.
Can I still play as a character if I’m hosting?
Of course! We made Moonlark Mysteries easy to host because we want you to enjoy your party. Now, with our free app, it’s even easier. The only issues are in Large Group themes you’ll know the location of the Map and in Advanced themes you’ll know the secret twist, both because you’ll be the one preparing and hiding the special props.
However, if you want to avoid the spoilers, simply have someone else (who isn’t coming to the party) set up the secret props for you. Then you can continue playing the host through the rounds and be just as surprised as the rest of your guests.
Also, keep in mind it’s still impossible for you to know how the night will end, even if you know the spoilers. Since Moonlark Mysteries progress through the unpredictable results of party games, every party across the country has a different ending.
How do I pick the right theme?
In the end, you know your friends and guests better than anyone, so only you can make this decision. But here are some helpful thoughts on how we’d analyze it:
First, figure out the number of guests you’ll have. If that number is 18 or more, you’ll need to do a Large Group theme. If the number is 17 or less, pick one of the other categories.
Second, if the majority of your friends are familiar with murder mysteries or board games, then we suggest you do an Advanced theme, which happens to be our most popular themes. We’ve had guests with ages from 13 to 94 enjoy these themes, so rest assured they aren’t complicated or confusing. They do require a little more preparation from the host and request that your guests get a little more into the character and the mystery.
On the other hand, if you think the majority of your friends would rather not think too hard about the mystery dynamics and instead prefer to play some games while dressed up, choose a Basic theme.
Don’t fret too much about this decision because there is something everyone can love in all our themes.
If I’m hosting, how much time does it take to prepare for a Moonlark Mystery?
With our free app, prep time is significantly reduced. We estimate maybe thirty minutes to an hour to prepare your house with all the game props and clues. Without the app, this may be up to two hours with the invitations, printing, cutting, and sealing envelopes.
Additional time is varied with the amount of decorations and food prep you want to conduct. Some people are fine with a few tablecloths and sandwiches; others plaster their walls and prepare four course meals. This is all based on your preference and your guests’ expectations.
In short, the prep time is fairly comparable to any other party you might host at your place.
