We loved how the little details and hints were presented and how everything mattered. It had a great subtlety to it, one that makes for a great deduction game. <...> Overall we really liked Historical Mystery: Death at the Ball and would easily suggest it to anyone who enjoys this type of games!

We missed a few key details, however it was interesting to see how the story develops.

We think that both Historical Mystery games are very simple and interesting to play! They are made for a specific audience in mind and we definitely belong in this audience. Solving puzzles, riddles and, in this case, mysteries is our kind of fun!
