THIS MONTH’S MYSTERY

Murder at the Zoo

Be the first to crack the case…

Coming in June: Murder at the Zoo

Subscriptions taken from May 1 – May 31 at 6PM CST

Summer is about to be in full swing, and that means the Hampstead Zoo is getting ready for its busiest season. After the zoo closed on Thursday, staff members were busy at work cleaning habitats, caring for the animals, and adding the finishing touches to a new exhibit entitled, “Endangered Species.” Little did they know that the most endangered species that evening was man. Claude, the adult male lion of the Hampstead Zoo, escaped his exhibit and killed head zoo keeper Daniel Strickland in an uncharacteristic display of savagery. Claude was immediately tranquilized and caged pending further inquiry into the incident, but there are many suspicious details about this incident that warrant investigation. The Chief Director of the Hampstead Zoo doesn’t think this was a mere accident and has hired the Will Street Detective Agency to solve this mystery.

Explore this wild kingdom and determine if Strickland’s death was the result of human orchestration or the byproduct of trying to tame Mother Nature. But, remember, it’s a jungle out there!

WOW! Simply wow! We LOVED this. What an awesome date night game! Perfectly put together, lasted a couple of hours.

CANDY P.

It’s great. I love it so so much. Took us like five hours to complete. It was so great. The puzzles are perfectly puzzling. The information is so detailed. OMG it’s the best.

We really love this box. Both our friends and ourselves purchased so we could play via zoom during Covid to stay connected and we had so much fun on our mystery days!!

BRIANNE P.

My husband and I tried a few different mystery boxes before choosing one. Out of all of them we LOVED DMS the best. We love how you can solve the mystery with only one box in a few hours. We currently subscribe and have purchase many one time boxes as well!
