However, all is not fun and games as shortly after the party starts, a snowstorm begins to rage outside, trapping all the partygoers inside their host’s mansion. When a murderer starts killing off those in attendance, the guests must figure out who is responsible, or at least how to stay alive -- lest they be next.

All voice actors are amazing
The use of LeVar burton as narrator is amazing and all the other voice actors are wonderful.
It was awesome. I felt like I was in a Agatha Christie’s novel! The characters are well played, the story is funny and thrilling at the same time. Hope this team will do another podcast like that soon!
Truly one of my FAVOURITE podcasts! An excellent short series, with an amazing cast. Plot twists had me second guessing everyone at the party, and it perfectly blends the 50s Neo-Noir vibes with a satirical level of comedy. Think Tim Curry’s slapstick comedy Clue.
