I get it. We all have this weird fascination with murder-mystery shows. I mean, there's a reason why they have remained popular for decades. And now with the more specific genre of true crime, we get to walk in the shoes of investigators as they try to figure out cases that have actually happened.

Try out your detective skills in Bangor

This Saturday in Downtown Bangor you can try finding a serial killer. Luckily for us, there isn't a real serial killer to find and you know you want to try your hand at it.

The event is being called 'The Bangor Ripper' and will be taking place this Saturday, October 16th. It is being put on by CluedUpp Games which uses an app to play the detective game with your team of up to six people. The search will take two to three hours and can choose to start anytime between 9 AM and 2 PM.

Searching for clues

The search will have you outside with your team searching for clues to find the serial killer who has already killed three people. Where will you start? You don't find out until you get your tickets and have your 'pre-game briefing'.

Yes, you do need a team of at least two people to play. Bonus - kids 16 and under can come along and not be counted as team members, so get that teen out into the sunshine and away from Minecraft. There are also prizes for the teams that are the quickest, best dressed for the game, have a great team name and a prize will even be awarded for the best doggie detective that joins a team.

Check out the event on Facebook and on the CluedUpp.com website for more information and to get tickets.
