Ready to solve a murder mystery on the streets of downtown Vancouver?

A  newly updated tour is offering guests a chance to collect clues, track down suspects, decode secret messages and track down a fictional killer – all while getting to know one of the city’s iconic neighbourhoods.

Dubbed Crime in Downtown, the tour is the first offering from the revamped Vancouver Mysteries, now run by Forbidden Vancouver (the company that specializes in “scandalous” historical tours of the city’s dark side). It’s a bit like the board game Clue, but played out on a real-life scale. Tour goers assemble into squads of two-five “detectives” and rendezvous in a secret downtown location for a debriefing.

The premise: Local journalist Jimmy Capello has been found murdered. He had plenty of enemies. Now it’s your job to find out who did it and why. And the clock is ticking.  Continue reading:
