OK.... The membership has spoken. Here is our next meetup, as decided upon by all of you (us). Please note that not only have we changed the game for the meetup but the date also. Hope this doesn't inconvenience anyone who already said yes, but this new meetup will work better for the group.... Let's Play!
From the game website:
"Trapped inside this great game, you'll find a hair raising, spine-tingling mystery.
Set in the small Transylvanian village of Transylville, our story revolves around the recent murder of local beauty queen, Virginia Vestalata. Her killer sits amongst a strange group of friends, gathered together for an anniversary celebration. That person, however, has every reason to keep their involvement a secret. As a relative of one of those present, Virginia was protected by the group's binding 'Oath of Allegiance', but it would appear as if someone...has broken their bond! If those present can deduce the murderer correctly, the guilty party will receive their just deserts, and Virginia's soul will be able to rest in peace. However, if the group fails, the killer will escape prosecution, and Virginia's soul will spend an eternity in torment, endlessly searching for justice, whilst trapped in the barren 'Netherworld'. ~ ''The Land of Lost Souls'' ~ A desolate place between this world and the next.
Set in The year is 1856, and we find ourselves in a remote Transylvanian market town: Transylville. Its inhabitants range from mainly agricultural laborers to landed aristocracy, but they share their village with several strange characters of a seemingly more sinister nature. The local murder rate is far higher than should be expected, but the lack of evidence at each new crime scene usually leaves the population bewildered, if not slightly suspicious of their strange co-habitants, that is, the guests assembled tonight. This evening's party has been arranged to celebrate the 20th Wedding Anniversary of Gomez and Morticia von Adums. However, the festivities have been overshadowed by the recent death of local beauty queen, Virginia Vestalata, who was pushed to her death from the village church bell tower only two days ago. The townsfolk are outraged and, once again, the finger is pointed at the usual suspects: those gathered for tonight's festivities. In amongst the tangled webs of deceipt which wove their way through Virginia's short but troubled life, we find a none too surprising array of motives for murder, amongst the assembled guests: All eventually rear their ugly heads in a night most will wish had never happened. Guests should try to unravel the threads running through the evening's rich tapestry, until they finally arrive at the killer's door. "

- Please be sure that you can attend when accepting. It makes it real hard on the rest of the party when the murderer cancels...
- We will be taking a waiting list in case we have cancellations (life does happen).
- If you are on the waiting list, you might be invited anyway. Sometimes there is a last minute cancellation and if not you might enjoy meeting the people and observing some of what is going on ...
