SESSIONS ARE ALWAYS SUBJECT TO CHANGE 

SEPTEMBER 17, 2016: The schedule is now as "final" as it ever gets! Which means that, yes, there will probably still be changes here and there, but generally only to resolve when we’ve accidentally placed one panelist on two panels at the same time, or if a panelist has to cancel.)

Kill Doctor Lucky - In The Flesh!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It’s not that you dislike the Doctor. It’s more of a seething hatred. He wronged you and we’ll leave it at that. Tonight you will attend a dinner party which will prove to be the perfect opportunity to take your revenge. Unfortunately, there are others attending who have the same idea....

Join us for a rousing, live action version, of the James Ernest board game "Kill Doctor Lucky". (1.5 hr)

• • • • 
For those familiar with the original board game, imagine the mansion from the game board laid out on an open floor, scaled up to support humans traipsing through them. And then imagine yourself acting as one of the pawns, creeping through the mansion rooms, keeping an eye out for that annoying doctor ... so you can kill him ... just as long as no one else can "see" you. 

For those who are NOT familiar with the game, well aren't you in for a treat! Whether you want to try your hand at playing or just want to watch the antics of those that do, it's sure to be a great time. Check out the following review of the board game from The Game Grumps Wiki:

"In this notorious game, which is an inversion of Clue, you hate Doctor Lucky. Maybe he left you out of his will. Maybe he killed your pet rock. Whatever the reason, you want him dead. Unfortunately, so do the other players. Since you don't want to go to jail, you need to make your attempt in secret; if anybody can see you, whistle nonchalantly, and let the Doctor live ... until next time. "

"Players move around the mansion, collecting murder weapons (to make the murder attempt stronger - doubly so if the weapon is used in an appropriate location); failure cards (to thwart opponents' plans); and movement cards (to try to get together with Doctor Lucky in a secluded location for his inevitable demise.)"
