What’s Your Poison? - 5 Day Virtual Mystery Challenge For Rowans Hospice

About What’s Your Poison? - 5 Day Virtual Mystery Challenge For Rowans Hospice

In the English village of Marshtown the Cocktail Mixology Society is facing a potential change in their leadership committee and tensions that were already high are running even higher. Some members are shaken others are stirred but then things really turn (whiskey) sour when a body is found.

Can you help Inspector Corner solve this Death in The Afternoon. Was it a result of Hanky Panky or perhaps a  Flirtini? Does it have anything to do with (Brandy) Alexander, the White Lady or Harvey's Wallbanger. Are the Three Wise Men of the group hiding secrets or perhaps that Angel Face isn't as angelic as it seems?
Another lighthearted murder mystery to play at your own pace from the award winning MurderedforMoney.

INCLUDING:
• Video footage
• Clues
• Puzzles
• Private Facebook Event Group (optional)
• Interrogation session (optional)
• Full instructions

Recommended for ages 11+

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY:
It was a fabulous experience and immense fun! Highly recommendable!!

Engaging, witty and draws you in! Excellent and interactive production
Everyone involved made such a great effort. The challenge was fun and exciting and very much needed as a distraction in the current situation.

Many thanks and congrats to the team for putting on a great experience.

This was a great self-paced mystery with an interesting story line. Complex enough to keep you thinking but not impossible to give us hope. It was entertaining to watch the characters live during the interrogation!

Thank you for getting our brains working and our suspicious minds racing.

LIVE OR RECORDED INTERROGATION:
As part of the production we will be hosting live suspect interrogation sessions (via Zoom video conferencing). We hope you will join us and ask your questions, however for anyone who is not able to attend, or would prefer not to, a video of the sessions will be made available afterwards, so you will not miss a thing. If you would prefer not to attend the live interrogation session, please buy a recording only ticket.

By taking part in the live interrogation session you are giving your agreement to being recorded and having the session placed as an unlisted Youtube video for the period of one week.

PRIZE:
1st Prize: £50 Amazon voucher (winner to be chosen at random from all correct who-dunnit entries received)

Master Investigator award: Free ticket to October's virtual mystery challenge and Master Investigator certificate. This award is given for the most accurate and detailed explanation of how the murder(s) occurred. The winner will be chosen by the director of the mystery and their decision is final. No cash alternative is available.
