Weak and shattered by his battle with the dragon Nidhogg, King Harald lay defenseless on his deathbed with his sword, "Leg-Biter," at his side. It was then someone stole it and stabbed him through the heart. Who could have murdered the great king and stolen his finest weapon? Queen Hildegaard has called everyone together to the Stone Circle to find out.

Put the kids to bed, break out those helmets and drinking horns and play a Viking Mystery game for 8-12 players.

Murder Mystery Reviews

Our group enjoyed this game tremendously; I was surprised by the elaborite costumes everyone wore. The characters were well-written; many of our guests became so wrapped up in their role that our discussions were animated and feverish.

The party was a great success! I had guests that were not into it at first. But it was a suprise party for my husband so they reluctantly played along. As soon as the party got going, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and got into role playing. I had people there in all age groups; 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's! I couldn't have been more pleased. I served roitesserie (sp?) chicken and new potatoes out of tin buckets. No utinsils but I handed out warm wash clothes to clean their hands. Great fun. I would like to host a party for my 68 year old mother because she thought the party sounded fun. Thank you!

A Viking Mystery was a great night, a good story unfolded with some very good interactive parts - one of which had us all searching the garden for clues (which must have looked bizarre to my neighbours as we were all in full costume). If anyone is looking for a party with a difference, enjoy dressing up & are prepared to get into a role then this is definitely for them! For my friends who weren’t involved I will recommend to them all that they try this experience. The only decision I now have to make is which murder mystery to buy next!
