  90. 9th Annual Murder Mystery Weekend:The Dead Man’s Hand

    Join us on April 7-8, 2018 for our 9th annual Murder Mystery Weekend in the Western White Mountains. This year, our theme is “The Dead Man’s Hand,” where a poker game ends in cold-blooded murder. Channel the likes of Scooby Doo, Gibbs and the rest of the NCIS team, and Sherlock Holmes and solve the crime of the century!

    “During the weekly poker game in the back room of a local building the winning player leaves early. Several players are angry that they ‘didn’t have a chance to win their money back’ and suggest there might have been some cheating. An hour after the game breaks up flashing police lights surround the body of the early winner near his lodging. Beside the body are the cards from his winning hand. Who killed the unlucky winner? Was it a poor loser, an angry wife, the bookmaker, the loan shark, the “dame” who runs the illegal poker game, or did someone else have a motive?”

    The annual Murder Mystery Weekend starts Saturday morning at Jean’s Playhouse where you will be introduced to all the characters, played by six local community members in costume, and handed a clue book and town map. The clue book and town map will provide you with some necessary information, like where to search for clues.
    You’ll have all day Saturday to run around town searching for clues and interviewing suspects. There are over 20 different clues so bring your notepad and sleuthing hat! Don’t forget to visit the crime scene. If you have some lingering questions, you can mingle with all the suspects at the optional dinner event Saturday evening at the Indian Head Resort.
    On Sunday morning, you’ll head back to Jean’s Playhouse for the reveal of the coroner’s report and death certificate. While the event is entirely free to play, you’ll have to pay $10 for an arrest warrant. The grand prize winner will win a weekend package in the Western White Mountains for use during the summer months. Additional names will be pulled from a hat for raffle prizes. All proceeds from the event are donated to the Western White Mountains Chamber of Commerce.
    Once the suspect is revealed, the local police will show up and take him or her away in handcuffs! Last year over 200 people played the game, and we look forward to having much more this year! Our Annual Murder Mystery Weekend is the perfect excuse to visit Lincoln-Woodstock for the weekend. You’re guaranteed to have tons of fun!
