Sat 3pm-7pm “Murder at the Tavern” with Jesse Filipko and Alex Danger de Tarr, 15 players
If you take a murder mystery, remove the script and the costumes, and then add secret goals, hidden identities, high-stakes negotiations, alliances and betrayals, you have “Murder at the Tavern”. Players become part of a story taking place in medieval fantasy world where the end is determined by you. There are twists and turns, filled with equal parts adventure and mystery, but each player only knows part of the story… some more than others. This is a unique experience that you can only do once, but you will talk about it for years to come. Don’t reveal any secrets because your friends will want to do it at Haiticon next year.
Sat 7pm-8:15pm “One Night Ultimate Werewolf" Tournament, Hosted by designer Ted Alspach. 24 players, 6 max/table. Details TBA
