MURDER MYSTERY PARTY –  “CRUISING FOR MURDER”

SAVE THE DATE:  Friday, November 16th @ 5pm in Main Building Faculty Lounge (Building #5 – SDMB 201)

The Faculty of Education invites you to an interactive evening of murder, mystery, and intrigue!

The setting for the evening is aboard a luxury cruise ship! As winter approaches and the days get shorter and colder, what could be better than a “cruise?”

There are two ways to participate in this evening: As a MAIN CHARACTER (20 characters available) or as a REGULAR PASSENGER (unlimited!)

  • If you want to be a MAIN CHARACTER, you will be central to the plot… you may even be the murderer! You will have information that is essential to solving the case!
  • If you want to be a REGULAR PASSENGER, you will still have information to share and objectives to complete, but are definitely innocent of the crime!

Come to the party (in character) and receive an envelope with objectives. Mix and mingle with your fellow ‘passengers’ and talk to the people on your list, trying to discover hidden facts and information…. and, of course, solve the mystery!

Click here for a link to more information about how the party works:

Email Ashley to RSVP and indicate whether you’d like to be a main character or regular passenger. You will receive your ‘character profile,’ which contains a description of you, some information about the evening, as well as costume ideas!

Hope to see you there!
