Murder in Fair Play
(Will require 8 participants)
Come to Lucinda's to receive your
clues during the casual lunch. Then embark upon solving the MURDER IN FAIR PLAY (the best murder mystery game ever created).
You will enjoy a scrumptious catered dinner at Lucinda's Country Inn. For the hospitality hour a local winemaker
might surprise everyone with a visit to pour his wines. The dinner includes wine, a glass of port each with dessert.
MURDER IN FAIR PLAY
Fair Play is a very small community. Everyone
knows everyone. Rumors run rampant and the line between fact and fiction can be very blurred.
The main business of the area is grapes – growing grapes, producing wine and selling wines to the public.
In addition, there are a variety of small businesses in Fair Play, Somerset, Mt. Aukum and Omo Ranch. These
include restaurants, bed and breakfast inns, small grocery/convenience stores, wineries and alpaca, horse and cattle ranches,
etc. There is friendly competition and cooperation amongst all these businesses.In the last few months there has been a lot of tension among the
wineries/tasting rooms. Each winemaker has his/her own style of winemaking, producing distinct types and
styles of wine. There has been somewhat of a trend toward Rhone-style wines. Many growers
are grafting existing vines over to the Rhone varietals. Others feel the area should stay with what the
region is best known for – hardy red Zinfandel. Complicating this is the conflicting views over the
marketing of the region. The area is on the verge of discovery. The number of wineries
has increased from 6 in the mid-90s to 25+ in 2011 and many on the drawing board for the next few years.
The newer owners and winemakers are anxious to promote the area in order to sell more wine. Others
are not interested in increasing production and do not want more people coming into the area. The local
industry is in flux and emotions run high.A
group of guests are arriving at Lucinda’s Country Inn in the afternoon. They are all here to attend
a winemaker dinner, featuring the area’s newest winemaker and winery. The guests are from all over
the world. During their visit to Fair Play, an important person in the Fair Play community is murdered. It
is possible that one of them has done the dastardly deed. The County Sheriff knows “South County”
very well, and is asking Lucinda's help in trying to solve the murder. It is going to take a
group of concerned (curious, nosey) people to solve this mystery and bring justice to Fair Play.
Sullivan, owner of Lucinda’s, has asked her guests to join together in this time of crisis and commit to searching out
all the clues and resolve this case. Each couple has been asked to seek out clues during the day’s
activities. At the end of the day, the guests may want to compare notes, or seek more information about
other guests’ activities, but who dunit?
