Murder Mystery: The Mystery of Crystal Cave
Try our Murder Mystery Live Action Role Playing game! It’s 1892. Many of the Southwest’s elite are converging on Keeseeville to see the incredible green Crystal Cave, recently discovered. You’re a member of an entourage that travels with a certain group of rich and powerful people. While they tour the unknown underground cavern, you’re left with the other entourages, safe inside The Engine House Theater. Suddenly, the ground begins to shake…

Pick your character from our selection of suspects. Will your character be good, or evil? You have secrets, but so does everyone else… Play your part, interview other characters, collect clues, and solve for whodunit. Be the first to solve The Mystery of Crystal Cave, and win a prize!
