  The Clue Game Mystery Challenge Exhibit

Mr. Boddy of Tudor Manor has been murdered by his closest friends!  And the Creekside Quilting’s Summer Challenge was to create a project surrounding the Clue Mystery Game that solves the murder of Mr. Boddy.

The challenge was to create a project, that gave clues to who did the murder, with what weapon, and in what room.  I must say, the projects were very creative and the clues are well hidden in each project!

Can you guess who did each murder, with what weapon, and in what room?

In the month of August, play along with us and our Clue Game Mystery Challenge Exhibit!  Submit your guesses and register to win prizes! 

All submitted guesses will be tallied for correct guesses and there will be a drawing for winners.  Gift cards of $25, $15 and $10 will be handed out.  So, play along and have some fun!
