It was Mr. Green, with the candlestick, in the library.

Or, at least, it could be this summer as you will be able to participate in a huge, interactive version of the popular board game Clue this summer in Salt Lake City.

The game is from British company "CluedUpp" and is making stops across the U.S. this year, including one in Salt Lake on June 29.

CluedUpp has events across the country, if you're not near Salt Lake City, you can find a list of events here.

The CluedUpp website describes the game:

CluedUpp is a brand-new city-wide murder mystery game that puts you in the shoes of a real-life detective. Using our award-winning app, your team will hunt around your chosen town, tracking down virtual witnesses, eliminating suspects and ruling-out murder weapons.

The game is described as a cross between Clue and Pokemon Go.

People often dress up in their best 1920s garb to participate, and the Salt Lake City event has its own version:

The Salt Lake City version of the game is called "Sneaky Finders" and is set in the fictitious town of Millingham. Your team of detectives will be tasked with cracking the case as you stalk the streets, tracking down virtual witnesses and eliminating suspects.

It costs $46 per ticket, and you can have a team of up to six adults.

Here's what CluedUpp says you'll need to play:

  • A team of detectives (at least 2 but up to 6 players per team)
  • Access to a Smartphone (Android or iOS compatible)
  • A fantastically clever team name
  • Awesome Sneaky Finders / 1920’s inspired fancy dress (dressing up is optional but good fun!)

CluedUpp says the event lasts between one and four hours, depending on how good of a detective team you have, with the average squad taking about two hours and 20 minutes to solve the crime.

CluedUpp has prizes too:

  • Fastest team
  • Best fancy dress (Sneaky Finders / 1920’s inspired)
  • Best team picture
  • Best team name
  • Best little detective (kids prize)
  • Best K-9 detective (dogs prize)

About 100 detective teams are expected to participate when the game comes to town on June 29.
