I have to say, Connecticut has been crushing it this year when it comes to hosting puzzly events to interest and engage solvers of all ages.
In addition to the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament every year in Stamford, we’ve discussed the Find the Wine corn maze event happening this month in Gales Ferry. Heck, the world’s first animal-centric Live-Action Roleplaying event was held in Redding just a month or so ago, and Goat LARP was widely praised as a successful and exciting puzzle endeavor for all involved!
And CT isn’t done yet. No, four different cities in September will be offering full, puzzly murder mysteries to be solved!
Yes, the team at CluedUpp, a British game company that specializes in outdoor city-spanning mysteries similar to the film Clue, will be running their latest event, Sneaky Finders, in Stamford and Bridgeport on September 14th and then in Hartford and New Haven on September 21st.
Participating teams will scramble around town, hunting down witnesses, unearthing clues, and trying to unravel the mystery, all through an interactive downloadable app and their own investigative efforts!
According to the event page for the Stamford edition of the game, you’ll need the following to play:
- A team of detectives (at least 2 but up to 6 players per team)
- Access to a Smartphone (Android or iOS)
- A clever team name
- Awesome Sneaky Finders / 1920’s inspired fancy dress (dressing up is optional but good fun!)
You only need to purchase 1 ticket per team of 6 adults. Children under 16 can play as an extra for free. Team Tickets are normally $60, but if you act now, you can nab Earlybird Team Tickets for just $46!
And even if you don’t crack the mystery, prizes will be awarded in such categories as:
- 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)
This sounds like an absolute blast, and I suspect the turnout for each event will be terrific. You can click here for details on all things CluedUpp, and their full schedule of upcoming events in the United States can be found here.
