Clue Deduction Sheet

TIU Clue is Here!

Something's been stolen, and TIU needs your help!

Friday night before Halloween, an unknown bandit made off with an item of importance to the Trinity community, and has hidden it somewhere on campus. The Bannockburn police have investigated, and they've narrowed down their findings to 10 members of the TIU faculty and staff, 10 items, and 10 locations. Now it's up to you figure out the rest.*

Over the next few weeks, you'll have an opportunity to find clues at Rolfing Library. Every time you check out materials, buy items, or ask reference questions, you'll receive a clue card. (Just like in the board game, clue cards signify that the person, place, or thing depicted is not the correct answer.) We'll also release a clue every weekday on our Facebook and Instagram accounts -- follow us on both, and you'll be able to get two clues every day! Finally, we've hidden five clues on various pages of the Rolfing website. Keep exploring, and you'll be even closer to coming up with the correct answer!

When you think you know who took what and put it where, click on the accusation link below. (Just like in the board game, you'll only have one shot, so make it count.) Accusations are due by midnight on November 19. Everyone who accuses correctly will receive a prize; they'll also be entered into a drawing to win a $25 Amazon gift card.

So head over to Rolfing, pick up your deduction sheet and your first clue card, and get sleuthing! 

*Note: Yes, this is complete make-believe. The reputations of these faculty/staff members will remain unbesmirched after the game is over.
