Where To Get This Card: Card Pack 3


"Sir Walter Raleigh was the Janus superstar of the early 17th century. He was a poet, an explorer, and . . . a pirate! Raleigh sailed the high seas, searching for new lands and hidden treasure. In 1587, he organized an expedition to establish a colony on Roanoke Island in Virginia. Although Raleigh himself remained in England, there are rumors that he sent a secret, and possibly stolen, an item with the settlers. (His decision to stay behind was a lucky one. The colony eventually disappeared--one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in history.) In 1603, Raleigh was charged with treason and imprisoned in the Tower of London for 13 years. Eventually, he was executed in 1618. Did his death have something to do with a Clue? Or do the Lucians just behead people for fun? Collect all the cards in this combination to unlock a Clue."
