Murder, mystery, suspense, and chocolate. If you love these four things, then you’ll love the Student Planning Committee’s (SPC’s) next event. “Death By Chocolate” is a cross between the classic Murder Mystery Game and our childhood board game “Clue.”
In case you may have missed out on this amazing board game when you were a child, “Clue” is a mind-boggling board game where your opponent must guess who your character is out of a group of potential people. The thing is, you can only ask each other yes or no questions about your character’s traits and gender, thus giving clues as to who they are.
The Murder Mystery game is essentially like Clue, but it has a story behind it and is acted out. But what makes this event different from those two games? One word: chocolate.
Student Planning Committee coordinator Brianne Mosley provided an overview of what people can expect from this Clue/Murder Mystery hybrid.
Attendees will get to watch a show and have all-you-can-eat desserts and chocolate all for free. Of course, all SPC events are free, but it sounds like this one is too good to pass up. It’s a fun thing to do on a Friday night in Ada, so grab a friend, more than one is highly recommended, and solve the mystery.
You won’t be the only one there, as student Ian Bartram anticipates attending.
“There is no way I’m going to miss this. If there is chocolate involved, especially all you can eat, I’ll be there. Plus, it’s free.”
Bartram also expressed his confidence in finding out who the killer is.
“I was great at Clue when I was kid. I played, I think, four times and never lost. I think I can win this,” he said.
For this, one will need to be great at problem solving, utilizing the process of elimination, and trusting their own instincts. If you possess this particular set of skills, you can win the prize at the end.
For now, no one knows what the prize will be, just like no one knows who the murderer is, but that’s what makes it all fun. Unfortunately, there can be only one winner, so in the case of a tie, the winners’ names will thrown into a hat and the winner will be picked raffle style.
Again, Death By Chocolate will be Friday, October 24 at 7 p.m. in Mac Ballroom.
