 Club 345 Lost Artifacts: 20 Questions - Sunday, December 6 at 1:30 PM
The museum was robbed and the thief was so good, nobody even noticed something went missing! Not wanting his skill to go unnoticed, he made a deal that if you can correctly guess what he stole, then he’ll return it to the museum in one piece. But there is a catch – you only get 20 questions. Can you make your questions count and figure it out! Click here to register!
