In England, where it was created, its called Cluedo. Here in America, its just Clue. Dont deny it you loved it all: the board game, the videogame, and even the movie. (Who doesnt like to solve a good mystery? ) It was Col. Mustard in the library with the rope! (By the way, rope? Really? When you stop to think about it, strangling someone with a noose and your bare hands seems pretty gruesome for family board-game night.)
But if opening the little envelope to find the miniature weapon and the name of the murderer just didnt satisfy your detective urges, try the 16th Annual Clueless on Las Olas: She Comes Undone Death of a Socialite. A fundraiser for Partners in Education Inc., the whodunit event provides participants with a series of clues and hints to follow as they roam Las Olas trying to solve the murder of the socialite. For $1, you can buy a hint from one of the snitches looking to sell their info. Only 450 sleuths will be allowed to detect, so sign up early at browardpartners.com.
Its $40 the day of the event provided there are any spots left. Check-in starts at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at SE Ninth Avenue and Las Olas Boulevard, with the sleuthing starting promptly at 7 p.m. By 8:45, all Sherlock wannabes should be gathered back at Ninth and Las Olas to make their guesses and find out who did it. The sleuthiest among you will win a VIP Florida Panthers Package (four premium lower-bowl tickets to a 2011/12 home game, a child Zamboni ride at the game, and a tour of the Panthers locker room). Visit browardpartners.com, or call 954-288-7201.
