The mysterious case of the missing Mr. Darcy

Can you follow the clues and save the day?

While taking an inventory of our program supplies, one of our interns realized that one of our most valuable treasures — the cardboard cutout of Mr. Darcy — has vanished! Can you follow the clues on the map to recover Mr. Darcy and solve the mystery?


How to Play

In order to play, click the icon in the top left corner of the frame below. This will open a sidebar, which will help you navigate through the clues. You might also want to click the icon in the top right corner, which will open the map in fullscreen, for a better experience. In case of difficulties accessing the embedded map below, CLICK HERE to open the game in a new tab.


Beginning at START, you‘ll receive a clue to help you find your way to the next location. As you continue through the levels (denoted by different color pins), there are more witnesses, but only one witness per level has the clue you need to move on. Don’t worry about selecting the correct pin on the map — instead, use the list of witnesses in the sidebar to move through the game. Don‘t worry if you don‘t find the correct witness on the first try — they will all lead you to the correct location eventually.

So what are you waiting for? Put on your detective cap, brush up on your Austen knowledge, and let’s find Mr. Darcy!
