Before the Internet made it possible for humans to lead second lives without leaving a Barcalounger, people played live-action role-playing games to escape the daily grind of sitting in an office. For $20, today's Groupon gets you an adult ticket to Mystery Adventures (a $40 value). Don your most competitive sleuthing fedora and knickers for a three-hour explorative adventure that takes you from the home base of the Mystery Inn to staged crime scenes, a detective's office, and a rewarding snacks and beverages table where you can solve the mystery of how many treats you can fit in your mouth.
Mystery Adventures makes regular gumshoes out of all mere pudding-boots by crafting a fully interactive experience that invites players into a world of high intrigue and puzzlement. Each new quest takes up to 12 gamers on a hunt to find clues and piece together an unfolding enigma. Detectives are provided with a chauffer who takes them from crime scene to crime scene, and they work together with a team of problem solvers to solve the custom-made mystery. Sleuths collect hidden Mystery Stones along the way to compete against one another for special prizes, although in the end, everyone is a winner except for the fictitious victim.
Besides the satisfying thrill of adventure, all participants receive prize compensation for their efforts and learn valuable lessons about teamwork. Mystery quests happen every night of the week at 7 p.m., with extra 1 p.m. adventures on Saturdays and Sundays to accommodate Americans' increasing demand for imaginary murder.
