This spy themed party isn’t an ordinary party filled with party games its an immersive spy mystery adventure where party guest get to be an CIA agent for an evening. They undergo a CIA training coarse, get to make ID badges, learn basic code ciphering and when they are all ready they get to go on their first mission where they will use their new spy craft skills to solve a very important case.
The birthday Invitation: New recruits get their first CIA test with the birthday invitation. They must decipher their first clue and bring the password to the safe house location to gain entrance into the CIA safe house training center. Aka birthday boys house.
While recruits arrive: New recruits stay occupied by learning about finger print patterns and making their own CIA ID cards/ Lanyards
CIA Training: Senior Agent DeLeeuw (My husband) did some basic warm ups with the new recruits to get them ready for the laser beam training course. Timing the recruits and recording time results makes it more competitive for older recruits. Winner gets bragging rights.
First Mission: Once recruits pass their training requirements they receive their first mission. An unknown agent comes to the safe house and delivers an urgent message from CIA main headquarters one of their main CIA operatives is a double spy for an enemy country and we need to find out who it is before he compromises all of the names of the under cover CIA agents. Large parties divide up into two to three groups to help solve the mystery. Each group gets a docea, CIA book of codes & Chiphers, and invisible ink spy pens (also makes great party favors)
CIA recruits are guided through four crime scene that are filled with clues to help them eliminate one CIA operative at a time.
Cracking The Case: Once the teams have eliminated the other suspects and have figured out who the double spy is they must report their findings to the CIA headquarters. A serious phone call is then made by senior agent DeLeeuw to headquarters. A few minutes later the unknown CIA operative from earlier shows up with a confession from the double spy they caught thanks to the efforts of the recruits. In the double agents confession he mentions that he has hidden special CIA spy gear nearby at the safe house and has given up the coordinance. The recruits have one last mission. Recover buried spy gear and keep it out of the hands of the enemy. Then we celebrate a successful mission with black and white Oreo cake!
