Bakken Mystery Game and CONvergence!

Happy Spring to all our fellow lovers of steampunk and mysteries!

The Red Ribbon Society is busy at work on two upcoming events.

Bakken Mystery Game Thursday, May 28 at 5:30 p.m.

Bernard Singleton knows his family is in danger, but needs your help to find out who is after them! Follow the clues by talking to suspects throughout the museum, including suspicious servants, visiting relatives, and some very curious out of town guests.

The Bakken Museum is a “one-of-a-kind museum exploring the mysteries of our electrical world. Inspiring a passion for science and its potential for social good by helping people explore the history and nature of electricity and magnetism.”

We are very excited about partnering with them to create a new mystery for their member event. This is normally a Bakken member-only benefit, but they have graciously opened attendance to our great players. The Bakken Museum is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, so memberships are tax deductible. Have fun at a new mystery game and show your support for the Red Ribbon Society and The Bakken Museum by attending on May 28th at 5:30 p.m., and make it even better by joining The Bakken Museum.

Family Science Night – Mystery at The Bakken is a private Bakken Museum Event, free to Bakken members and active volunteers. Red Ribbon Society patrons may attend this special event by paying the regular admission price of $7, or by a purchasing a membership at a special one-time 10% discount at the event.

Those wishing to attend must RSVP by Thursday, May 21 by sending an email to Phil Borreson at borreson@thebakken.org.

CONvergence 2015

We’re off to the CONvergence Convention happening July 2-5.

On tap we have a new Steam Century mystery game on Saturday starting at 12:30.

Kaposia is shocked by the murder of three women. Can you solve the mystery before the serial killer strikes again, or is something even more sinister at work?

Our Steampunk Craft Hour returns Sunday morning from 11:00 to noon in the Quantum Sandbox.

People’s favorite Steam Century Scavenger Hunt is back for a double dose of fun both Friday and Saturday nights.

We hope to see you at our events.
