What could be more fun than playing a classic board game in real life? Each year The Buffalo Museum of Science hosts a game of CLUE at the museum (after dark), where players literally role play with CLUE characters in order to solve a crime that took place at the museum. Of course the game is altered a bit to fit into the museum’s science-type atmosphere.
The game is played by teams of two to ten people who work together to solve the crime – where it was committed, who was the culprit, and what was the weapon? Per usual there are museum twists along the way that incorporate objects and people related to the venue.
“Was it Lilian Fairchild in Artifacts with the mastodon femur? Or Chauncey Hamlin in the Vertebrate Hall with the microscope?” That, my friend, is for you to find out!
Get a Clue happy hour event on Friday, January 23 from 6 to 9pm. Tickets include the murder-mystery game and access to all of the Museum’s permanent exhibits and galleries. The event is for adults 21 and over only and a cash bar will be available. Two games will be held the night of the event with only 250 registration slots available (125 players per game). Game times will be assigned to attendees upon arrival at the Museum. Tickets are $10 for Museum members and $20 for non-members, and can be purchased on line by visiting www.sciencebuff.org. The Museum’s Get a Clue event has sold out every year since it began in 2012.
