The Special Ones - A Mystery Game for Children Aged 12 and Under

Susan Haley

Published by Haley Productions

This is a thrilling, action-packed whodunit mystery party game combined with a mini-scavenger hunt for a cast of 8 prime suspects (kids)

PLUS : Any number of guests (these children will play detectives and work to solve the mystery)

And (at least) one adult

Dear Special Ones

You know why you're here

The President of the United States of America asked you to be here because you're one of the Special Ones, an elite

By "elite" we mean "cream of the crop" - special children with very special DNA and very special skills and intelligence

Remember, the world is counting on you to save us all from Evil

So train well and train hard

But be warned and beware - wherever there is good, there is evil

And Camp Fredo is no exception

NAME OF MISSION: Operation: Dingleberry Muffin

CODE NAME: C.O.O.L. KIDS (Covert Operatives: Off Limits)

MEETING PLACE: Camp Fredo, a top secret training camp on the outskirts of Gotham City

YOUR CONTACT: Simon (or Simone) Snuffle


NOTE - These roles can be adapted for an all boy or all girl cast - look for alternate names in the script

Dare Devill A very fearless young man willing to brave anything and do anything to save the day - or so he says. Danger is his middle name (really)!

Lauren Little Lauren seems to be awfully well, dim for a special one. What's her secret?

Gypsy Seer - She says her gift is that she can almost always predict what is about to happen. We'll see about that, won't we?

Cody Frost He can freeze people - but only people who don't believe in his special power because, really, what's the use of freezing people who believe in you (unless they want you to freeze them)?

Treat "Doc" Thomas His nickname is "Doc" because he can cure things - not everything because he's still developing his power, but lots of things

Hunter Safari - An excellent tracker due to his amazing sense of direction and his amazing sense of smell. Can he track down the bad guy ? Or maybe he is the bad guy ?

Stephanie Snooze - Stephanie tends to be very sleepy all the time but there's a reason for that. She says her brain needs it

Gina Grump - Okay so she's grumpy all the time. She's argumentative and she doesn't like to play with others or cooperate. So you might be asking, why would she be a special one if she won't play with others and is grumpy all the time? Ask her if you dare!

THANK YOU template



"Thank you so much for making "The Special Ones" available out there! The game comes well prepared, so I didn't have too much prep-time to put into it. The kids had so much fun! They loved being "special ones". The parents had as much fun as the kids. They really got into their characters and costumes, and the kids loved seeing their parents act! ... I'll order again!" ~ Jamie Nagaich, Seattle, WA
