However, it wasn’t long before guests realized that something was not right. The evening’s host never showed. Their worst suspicions were confirmed when the Head Maid and Butler announced that Mr. Bean… was dead!
Suspects included the six characters they had met over dinner, so each couple set out to determine who it could have been. Was it the unemotional Professor? Or easily annoyed Miss Peacock? Or even good-hearted Mr. Green?
The possible murder weapons were displayed for the couples to examine. They included a hippo tusk, porcupine quill, scorpion, and even a viper!
Each weapon, room, and character offered riddles to be solved, that would eventually lead them to discover how, where, and by whom Mr. Bean had been murdered. The characters, though distraught, were able to help the detectives solve the riddles and gather evidence.
While the couples tried to solve the mystery, the Head Maid and Butler collected the suspects’ fingerprints as evidence.
Finally, one couple solved all the riddles and gathered enough evidence to solve the mystery! Few were surprised to learn that it was Mrs. White in the Hall with the Scorpion!
Everyone was relieved that the mystery was solved- except maybe Mrs. White. We are grateful to all the couples that joined us for an enjoyable Date Night! Don’t forget to check our website for information on all our fun events!
