The Ximenez-Fatio House is offering a special event every Friday, and Saturday night that focuses on a rare 17th-century Caravaca Cross that was produced in the late 1660s to celebrate the end of the Black Plague in Europe. The cross was discovered during an archaeological dig at the Ximenez-Fatio House and (in real life) is currently on display for visitors to see.
The premise of “Heist at the Museum” is that the cross was stolen, and the villain is still on the property and has hidden the cross in one of nine rooms. Like every board game we have ever played, you spin to determine the number of moves you get. There’s one big difference: You Are the Game Piece!! If you spin a 2, then you move 2 rooms in the house; spin a 4 and you move 4 rooms, etc. By process of elimination each team of detectives will have the opportunity to move from room-to-room and solve who stole the cross, what they stashed it in, and which room it may be found. Come play and see if you can figure out whodunnit – Do You Have a Clue?
Heist at the Museum takes place every Friday, and Saturday at 6:00 p.m. Cost is $20.00 per person and the game will last approximately 90 minutes or longer – depending upon how good of a detective you are!
