The Search For The Truth...

The Search For The Truth picture

Overview...

"Mystery not murder" version

A large group is attending a Christian camp. The theme for the weekend is to find the truth. As the weekend progresses the participants find that they are not only on a search for their own personal truth, but also the truth in relation to a crime they didn't think could ever happen – the poisoning of camp leader, Peter Stein. But it is obvious that there was no intention to kill Peter, only to make him sick.

Peter is a hard-working 56 year old man who is said to look like "a stern garden gnome". He is a Vietnam vet and retired Lt. Col. in the US Army. His favorite food is Haggen Daaz ice cream and he never turns down dessert. He has a wife who is helping run the camp, two grown children and four grandchildren. He is a counselor for the police department. He has a Masters in counseling, although some people found his counseling style a bit dictatorial.

This is a Christian mystery dinner party game. It was written with the assistance of a youth pastor in the US and was loosely based on real teenagers. There are some references to Biblical stories. However, all our kits are great for Church fund raisers and youth camps.

Reading level: 6

This kit can also be enjoyed by non-Christians.

Biblical stories referred to in the mystery

Abel was killed by Cain because Cain didn't value God's love. This story is covered in the Book of Genesis in the Bible.

The handwriting on the wall is mentioned in The Book of Daniel in the Bible. King Belshazzar and his guests didn't know what it meant. Only Daniel could read the writing. It told that they would be punished because they were drinking from golden cups stolen from the temple.

"The burning bush" is mentioned in the Book of Genesis in the Bible. This is when God captured Moses' attention by presenting him with a burning bush. It was then that God spoke to him.
