Summer Fun in Virginia Beach

See also

Virginia Beach boasts all the sand and sea anyone could want. Add in Ocean Breeze Waterpark, the Virginia Aquarium and Maverick Murder Mysteries, and visitors and residents have the makings of an entertaining day and night.

But if your pocketbook is protesting being pinched further, these options bring the fun to your home for free or fewer than three bucks.

“Who Killed Will?” is a murder mystery party game for six to thirty people. Something is rotten and it’s not in Denmark; someone killed Shakespeare. Play your favorite character from one of the Bard’s plays while figuring out who killed Will.

Like the mystery party game idea but want a beach theme? Check out “The Case of the Lifeless Lifeguard.” Sandy Beechnut is dead but who put the harpoon in her heart? Senator Bill Clanton or his wife Hillary? Big Bob Texaco - A throw back to the days of Texas justice? Al. G. Side - former Navy Seal and Beach Patrol Captain at Chix Beach? The suspect list is long as everyone decides which shady character did the dirty deed.

What could be better than free? Take a ride down the Nile on Pharaoh’s barge while discovering who tried to assassinate his highness Futty-tut-tut. Unless the suspects themselves figure out which one of them is behind the reprehensible act, pharaoh will execute them all. Assassination on the Ancient Nile is a free download from Fools for Christ.

The Fools for Christ website offers a number of free murder mystery party games with Bible related themes or settings. Additional dramatic activities for children, such as The Search for the Armor of God, are available at no change.

If you’d rather enjoy the peace and quiet of a quick read, consider Random Acts of Murder, the first book in a new mystery series by Christy Barritt. When Holly Anna Paladin is given a year to live, she embraces her final days doing what she loves most—random acts of kindness. Then a corpse complicates her life in more ways than one.
