How to Play:

Using your smartphone register and download the game app. Collect your teammates and start out on a mission to catch the culprit before it’s too late. The game will have you chasing down clues throughout our Downtown. Clues are scatter all around and some might only be found during business hours. Answering clues will unlock more clues until you reach a point to try and solve this mystery of “who dunnit.”

Game play should take anywhere from 1 to 1 1/2 hours to complete and is open all week. You can play in one stretch or over the course of the week. Note that once you begin your detective clock starts ticking until you solve the mystery.

How to Win:

You and/or your team will be met with challenges, riddles and clues along your detective journey. Answering clues or doing challenges will award your team points. Some clues and challenges will allow for multiple attempts with a lower point value for each attempt. The game is scored by total points accumulated from clues and challenges, bonus points are awarded for creativity (have some fun and wear your costume, it is Halloween after all). In addition to points accumulated throughout the game, BIG points are added for solving the mystery correctly. And the final addition to your team’s points is the amount of time it take your team to solve the mystery. The quicker the better. Play at your leisure throughout the week or go through the game all at once, but know that once you begin the clock is ticking and recording the amount of time it takes your team to solve the mystery.

We will be announcing the solution to the mystery along with the winners live on the radio Monday, November 1st at 7:45am. The solution and winners will also be announced on our website and social media.

Happy Hunting!!
