Game Directions

To win the game you have to make it back to the present day with 9 clue cards, your suspect, motive, and crime to solve the mystery of the Lost colony.

2-4 players

To begin…

You cannot launch your time machine until you roll a 3 on the die for the three attempts to make Roanoke a colony. After you make it to 16th century America, you roll the die to determine how many spaces to move ahead. If you land on a question space answer the question. If you answer correctly you keep a clue card. If not, it’s the next players turn. After you gather three clue cards you choose a color coded crime card. After the next three clue cards you choose a motive card that is the same color. To win you must determine a suspect using the motive and crime cards as well as using the questions you just answered. Once you land on the Gather Your Evidence space, if you don’t have your 9 clue cards and the crime cards you will use your remaining turns on that space until there is a winner or until you gather the materials. To make it off the colony you must roll a 3 to move to the Time Travel Arrival Center. Are you ready to solve this mystery?

Detective Notebook

The first English Colony of Roanoke was founded in 1585, by Sir Walter Raleigh who received permission from the Queen of England to make a colony in America.

The Colony ran out of food and Sir Richard Grenville, who had transported the colonists to Virginia, returned to Britain for supplies. Sadly Greenville took a long time to return to the colony. When another sailor named Sir Francis Drake went to Roanoke he picked up the men but left 15 of the sailors who came with him on the island. No one ever saw the men again.

Two years later, England sent over men, women, and children to make Roanoke a colony. Three years after that, they disappeared along with their homes and supplies. The only clue left was the word “Croatan” carved on a tree. English and Spanish sailors, as well as many historians today have searched for answers to this mystery. Now it is your turn!
