Murder Mystery Escape Room: Home

With the arrival of a telegram, you have been invited to attend a dinner party at the Hotel Savoy in London. The host and most guests are a mystery to you, but the promise of your heart's desire in the telegram is worth attending. Upon arrival, however, prized possessions disappear, and the party itself goes awry as guests begin to die. Work with the other guests to not only catch the murderer before they can strike again but also discover where your prized belongings have gotten off to!

A huge shout-out goes to the Theatre Department and the Blue Ridge Institute and Museum for letting us borrow items to use as props.
