Murder on the Riverboat Queen (Sports, Games and Toys)

"What do you say we start off the semester with a little bit of ridiculous fun? Murder on the Riverboat Queen."

"Murder on the Riverboat Queen" is modeled after the odd yet compelling game phenomenon known as Murder Mysteries In A Box. The idea is that a member of a party (set in a salon in 1880s New York City or a train running through the Rockies in 1842, or whatever) ends up mysteriously deceased. Each player gets a character, and the host or hostess, while running the show, can also play a part. Dressing in costume is optional but encouraged. Whodunnit is the question, and as the party tries to figure it out, hilarity will invariably ensue. Unless, of course, you're Veronica, and use the internet as a cheat sheet.
