A Clueless Murder Mystery Party⎪Grab 8 – 12 friends and enjoy an evening filled with murder and mystery as you mourn the late Mr. Boddy in this Murder Mystery Party.
A known millionaire, Mr. Boddy is a man of great wealth, of which you hope to gain an inheritance from – but only if you are brave enough to attend the reading of his will. Even though foul play was indicated in his death, the culprit has yet to be brought to justice… and the killer is likely to strike again!
Was it Miss Scarlet in the conservatory with the candlestick? Colonel Mustard in the kitchen with the cleaver? Or perhaps Professor Plum in the parlor with the poison?
As one of the deceased’s confidants or family members, it is your help that is needed to piece together his mystifying death, while avoiding being the victim of yet another murder at the will reading. Brewed Breads, 185 East Foothills Parkway #ste 110 Fort Collins, CO
