This year was Mystery in Outer Space (I got to reuse the decorations from the HS retreat, yay). Each person is pre-assigned a character so they can dress to the part. No scripts are given ahead of time but it is rather impromptu and revealed as the evening progresses.
Act I is first done, followed by dinner. Then act II is completed followed by dessert. Then act III is carried out at which point each person makes a guess as to who the murderer is. Then at the end each character reveals who did it. It is set up in such a way where not even the murderer knows that he or she has done the murder until the very end.

|The Conference Room|
|We had a greeting and opening from an "Out of this World" interrogator via webcam over 50000 light years away.|
Some of the suspects included:
Little Green Man-a Magnesium farmer
The Sustainer-the gardener and farmer and I keep the green things on board alive. Otherwise we would run out of oxygen who created a totally sustainable system. The water run off goes to the fish pond and the fish excrements fertilize the plants.
Siren-Pascal’s widow and top beauty pageant winner even beating those Beauties from the Beauty Galaxy
Dollar Man- A businessman and space capitalist who owns land on numerous plants in numerous galaxies.
Towel-Pascal’s walking, talking, more than your average…towel
Gold Face-who gets called to solve all the major inter-galactic problems.
The Answer-Pascal’s computer
At Your Service-Pascal’s Robot and on board maid
Stinky- Pascal’s pet; a hybrid cross between a robot and an animal in this case part skunk.

|All point to suspect Towel-She was the murderer who suffocated Pascal|

It was a fun evening...so who killed Pascal? Well he was suffocated by Towel as she is very thick and strong. This was one of the most fun youth events I've experienced a great thing to do near Halloween for an alternative for older youth.
