The murder mystery is played in rounds. You will receive an envelope to start each round that contains information needed for you to play the role of your character. The first rounds will be used to break the ice, build characters and establish motives for murder. Take time to get to know each character and focus on the story that is building around you. The motives for murder will come clear during the following rounds climaxing with the murder. The post murder segment is when the investigation commences. You will need to interrogate everybody, view the evidence and put pieces together to solve whodunit.
Saturday 9:00pm – 10pm Desert in the dining room
Desert will be served in the dining room where maybe a last chance clue or two might be found. Each participant will have the opportunity to stand up and solve the case by presenting their facts and findings before the murderer is revealed.
