FAIRFIELD, Utah County — Camp Floyd will turn the clock back to 1859 and host its first Soldier’s Games and Murder Mystery afternoon on Saturday, Feb. 1.
The event will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Participants can start by playing the same games played by soldiers in Fairfield like Faro, Chuck-a-luck, and three-card monte to win chocolate Double Eagle coins.
After a fake murder occurs, become part of the history at Camp Floyd by portraying a character with certain knowledge and objectives. Talk to others and try to uncover the mystery of who did it. The afternoon will end as the mystery is revealed.
The event is appropriate for all ages, but those over the age of 12 will enjoy the event most. Period attire is recommended but not required. Visitors are encouraged to view the museums at Camp Floyd prior to or after the event. The cost is $10 per person.
Each participant also will receive Double Eagle chocolate coins, a bottle of "Valley Tan" Root Beer and snacks, a photo of themselves in period attire, and admission to Museum and Stagecoach Inn.
