St. Cakes
A whodunit game set in a school where murder is on the syllabus

Style: Fairly Participative and Downloadable.

Be a pupil or teacher at this year’s St. Cakes School Founder’s Day celebration. And don’t be surprised if some things don’t quite go to plan. It’s that sort of school…

Bishop Cakes founded the school in 930 A.D. Today, the pupils will all do their best to make it a day to remember – and one the headmaster would sooner forget! Everyone here belongs to a team or “house”. Someone will commit a murder. Everyone else will try to identify them. There is also a “St. Cakes Challenge” for each team to have a go at. Part of it consists of writing of a new school song. The mystery concludes with teams making their accusations, the murderer being identified and the new school song being selected. Fancy dress is optional but does add greatly to the fun.
