“Whodunnit Downtown?” It was Pirate Peggy Preston! That’s who traveled back in time and stole Captain C.R. Silverbeard’s Chrome Key for his silver treasure chest to help her cousin! She was the red lipstick wearing student of Professor Hattie Hallmark. That pair of heirloom earrings from her distant cousin let her go through the Wells’ time portal and bring pirates to Sequim.

Kelly Olson of Sequim picked her and won the big prize! Thank you everyone for playing tonight!

Silver Themed First Friday Art Walk Sequim and “Whodunnit Downtown?” – The Case of the Chrome Key Mystery Game on January 8, 2016

Collect the clues about the suspects who have fallen through time travel gateways to solve the Mystery Game “Whodunnit Downtown? – The Case of the Chrome Key” on January 8, 2016 during the Sequim Art Walk. Due to the First Friday Art Walk Sequim falling on New Year’s Day, the Art Walk has been shifted to January 8 for this month only.

The story is in 1946, the Atomic Age emerged and by chance temporal portals through time and alternative universes opened in Sequim. Pirate Captain C. R. Silverbeard’s locked silver chest was found in a farmhouse overlooking the City of Sequim and Strait of Juan De Fuca. The chest from the past became a shiny curio on display at a local spice and tea shop. The treasure chest can only be opened by Silverbeard’s Chrome Key stolen from him in 1776. Treasure hunting adventurers and pirates from the present, past, and Neo-Victorian times will gather in Sequim this January 8th evening to reveal who stole the Chrome Key that unlocks this pirate plunder.

Adventure around the Art Walk venues to mingle with the suspects in our mystery game and discover why they might have Captain C. R. Silverbeard’s Chrome Key starting at 5 PM. You can solve this crime that crosses time and space. Fill out your game card, enter it at Sequim Spice and Tea at 121 W Washington St., and be part of the prize drawing for the correct answer at 7:30 PM. The first game card with the correct answer wins the big prize of treasured and educational experiences including a Seaview Vacation Rental Stay from Cedarbrook Lavender and Herb Farm. Visitors and sleuths to the Sequim Art Walk are encouraged to dress in our themed colors of silver, black, and white, as well as, in 40’s era, steampunk, or in pirate garb. It is not required, but dressing up makes the evening more fun and festive.
