It is April 29th 1970, fifty years after the 19th amendment ensured women the right to vote. As a new decade ushers in limitless possibilities, you have been invited to the Monroe County History Center Museum for the annual Elizabeth Cady Stanton Gala, celebrating the pioneering suffragettes and their fight for equality. It is an elegant affair, where Washington insiders sip champagne with stunning socialites, mop topped British rockers dance with sultry mavens of Soul, and intellectual elite debate with roguish revolutionaries. Hidden among the ancient tomes and historic artifacts, are cryptic secrets, and mysterious untold stories.

The problem is, one of you is a murderer.

How it works:

  • Each player receives a character card with information pertaining to themselves, other characters, and the plot.

  • The players are split into teams and tasked with utilizing their clues, their teammates' clues, and information that they gain from the game, to deduce the identity of the killer and the motive as well as any other crimes.

  • The game progresses in rounds. Each one reveals more clues to the players and allows time for them to mingle with other characters, follow up on leads, and question each other about clues. After three rounds have been completed the teams will have time to discuss and attempt to solve the crime.

  • Each team will then choose a spokesperson to tell the group who they think is the killer and the motive for the murder as well as any other culprits. The true plot will then be revealed and the winning team will be determined.
