To Kill a King: Herod Antipas
By Kathy Applebee

Date: 39 A.D. Herod Antipas is throwing a big banquet with fine food, lavish entertainment and a number of unexpected guests. Which one killed him?

Mystery party games are an engaging alternative to studying life in the Roman Empire and make wonderful drama activities. Add spice to Bible classes or youth group activities while immersing everyone in Roman customs of the first century. Acting experience and knowledge of police procedures are not necessary for a party no one will forget. Each guests serves as both a suspect and investigator.

Kit includes character dossiers for 6-12 guests (as many extras as you wish possible), a host pack with complete instructions and the clues needed to solve the murder. Suggestions for menus (if part of a dinner or light snacks), and casting the roles make it easy for even a first-timer.
