Fancy trying to solve a murder mystery?
If you’re a fan of Peaky Blinders and you’re a bit of a murderino (if you know, you know) then an event that’s hitting Cork this summer might be right up your street.
CluedUpp is hosting a murder mystery event, much like a real-life version of Cluedo. It’s scheduled to take place on June 8 and participants may begin between 10am and 1pm and finish before five.
Cleverly entitled “Sneaky Finders”, the event is a nod to the BBC hit show Peaky Blinders, starring Cork’s own Cillian Murphy (all hail).
The brief is as follows:
“It’s 1921 and the bustling industrial town of Millingham, near Cork, has awoke on a misty morning to find one of its most feared residents has been poisoned. As the smoke lifts the rumours spread across town as to what could have happened and who could be responsible. Rest assured this isn’t going to be straightforward. With money, crime and power come enemies from all walks of life, but who would be daring enough to do this?
“Special branch need assistance with solving this crime and you have been seconded from the murder squad. As the complicated investigation continues, a list of suspects and witnesses emerge and it’s going to take your specialist skills to help catch the culprit!
“‘Sneaky Finders’ is our latest virtual detective adventure and perhaps our toughest yet. Will you be able to crack the case?!”
If you’re thinking of giving it a go, you’ll need to round up between two and six other players and have access to a smartphone. You’ll also need to devise a team name and 1920’s garb is an option if that’s your thing.
While it can take anywhere between one and four hours to solve the crime, the average duration is just under two and a half hours.
There will be six prizes awarded on the day and the event costs €40 per team. Those under 16 are invited to play along free of charge, but do not count as team members.
