Guests will enjoy seeing Max’s collections of creepy and curious objects, inspired by his love of black-and-white horror films, while sampling tasty hors d'oeuvres in the spooky elegance of the historic mansion. But the real reason behind the invitation is a puzzling mystery, long-hidden within the cavernous home, that Max has recently unearthed and he needs your help to solve it! Following newly-discovered instructions, you will search the house for clues, collecting all of the pieces to complete the puzzle.
