The Sherlock Holmes Scavenger Hunt at The Getty
September 28, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm$24
Holmes and Watson solved a similar mystery—can you?
In this whodunit based on a Sir Arthur Conan Doyle story, you and your teammates play detective to solve a murder. When wealthy businessman Hilton Cubitt is fatally shot at his home, police suspect his wife, Elsie. She too was shot, but the police believe she turned the gun on herself after gunning down her husband.
But wait! A week ago, Hilton had approached the Watson Adventures code-breaking experts for help. Elsie had received disturbing e-mails that contained images of dancing stick figures, but she’d refused to talk further about them.
Found at the crime scene: a crumpled copy of a scavenger hunt involving nudes in the Getty Center, where Elsie works on ancient manuscripts as a cryptographer. If you can figure out how the scavenger hunt is linked to the e-mails, you can clear Elsie’s name, figure out who murdered Hilton Cubitt, and learn the secret of the dancing nudes. A woman’s life hangs in the balance, and the clock is ticking!
