Murder Under The Big Top

Enter a world of fabulous freaks & exotic acts!

The Greatest Mystery On Earth!

Anxious to bolster his small, dog-and-pony show-like circus to a spectacle rivaling Ringling Brothers, Harold Hargove’s desperate attempts to lure audiences with jaw-dropping attractions have created rivalries that extend beyond the center ring.

As the pressure builds for everyone–performers, guests, and managers– a murder is committed that steals the show… and you are left to uncover the culprit before the final act.

Was it the raging ringmaster in an attempt to clean up the spectacle?
The talented tightrope walker whose fall took them out of the limelight?
A revolting roustabout with revenge in his veins?
Or possibly a possessive performer whose death-defying demeanor went too far…

In an intense world of illusion and intrigue, you must rely on your wit and intuition to find the killer before the grand finale of this circus murder mystery party!
