Mystery League: Team-Based Puzzle Hunts
Not your typical “check an item off a list” scavenger hunt, these events seem to be a mixture of sleuthing, code breaking, and creative problem solving. Most of all, it seems to be largely social in nature, with a lot of other participants helping/playing at once.
The site and descriptions sounds really intriguing, though the price tag isn’t something a regular person can really swing (although if you can, email me so we can become friends). The pricing structure suggests the business is geared more towards companies and team-building, though there are sometimes public events that are available.
I’m reminded that Sandor presented at 20×2 Chicago: Who Knew?, many years ago. And while I can’t recall deatils right now of that presentation he gave, I recall being absolutely enthralled at his talk. Sounds like the right guy to be creating puzzles!
// Edit: Though I can definitely not afford to book an event for myself, I’m thinking it would be an interesting project to try to crowd-source the cost. Break it down so that 80 interested strangers could all chip in $40 and arrange to have a puzzle hunt set up.
