26-06-2015 “Voodoo In The Big Easy" Murder Mystery Game/Event
"Enter steamy New Orleans during the sultry 60’s and take a bite out of the forbidden. Follow the sound of rhythmic drumming to a night of debauchery.

Here you will find the inner circle of ‘the Big Easy’ feasting on caviar and strong spirits while intently ogling gyrating bodies; throwing lusty invitations of sparkling beads at would be lovers.

Amidst the madness Edgar Degas rose from his chair and solemnly made his way through the frenzied crowd to the deserted library. Here he tied a rope over a roof beam, fashioned a hangman’s noose and stepped onto a rickety chair. As if in a trance he pulled the noose over his head, tightening it, the rough hemp biting into his skin.

Edgar balanced himself for a brief moment, staring wistfully into space before lightly stepping off into that dark unknown. A neatly stitched voodoo doll found in Edgars pocket alluded to foul play.

Suspects will have to immerse themselves in a spellbinding mystery filled with shadowy secrets and closets stuffed with skeletons to catch a killer hell bent on twisting the truth."
