Live Action CLUE at Old Cap

Friday, October 26, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Old Capitol Live-Action Clue

On a dark and stormy night in October of 1851 a mysterious man dressed in black stepped off the train in Iowa City and headed straight for the Capitol building. In a disturbing twist of fate the mystery man was found dead the next morning. Witnesses heard loud, angry voices coming from up the hill. Others claimed to have seen a cloaked man emerge from several offices of Iowa City’s public figures. Over 150 years later the mystery remains unsolved. Every October the ghost of the mysterious drifter haunts the Old Capitol Museum. Staffers have heard the slow, heavy footsteps on the grand spiral staircase and the low, sad wailing from the bell tower. You at your team of 5 must help us solve this grisly mystery so the faceless man can finally rest in peace!

To win this game, you must beat the other 5 members of your team in answering these three questions: Who done it? Where? And with what Weapon?
