5 Days: Murder at the Judge Morris estate

October 29, 2008

I had the good fortune to attend an muder mystery event at the Judge Morris Estate on Polly Drummond Hill road. The mystery was written by Mysteries by Drew, which I was not able to find a website for and held in the Judge Morris Estate at White Clay Creek State Park.

I don’t know if you’ve ever been fortunate enough to attend such an event, but if you haven’t, you really should. It was loads of fun, they had nice refreshments, and and a cast of very talented and attractive actors. The plot was engaging, and the mystery was surprisingly deep. The actors were able to work in a great amount of humor, from puns to the ribald, and that added quite well to the fun of the night.

Unlike my usual spoiler-rich content, I’m not going to go into detail of the plot or the solution, but trust me when I tell you that your powers of logic and recall will be put to a very enjoyable test!

A few tips for the uninitiated:

  1. Get there early. Try to be in the very first group to start, as your time is limited to solve the mystery
  2. Don’t spend too much time with the refreshments. Again, time is limited.
  3. Make sure your questioning is concise and to the point. Did I mention that there is a time limit?
  4. Read the supplied pamphlet. There is a guide of the questions that, when asked, further your understanding of the mystery.

The Judge Morris estate will have another mystery event in February, and I would encourage anyone who wants a fun and unusual night out to attend!
