We have an all-new Online Murder Mystery and Team Scavenger Hunt just in time for Valentine’s Day! These events are fun and creative ways to get you socializing with other members of the group while working together to help solve a puzzle. No experience is needed and the stories are designed to be fun and informative. This year’s theme is “Murder at The Covid Cupids Valentine’s Day Single Party.”
How it works:
- When you register you will be sent the log-in info for our event on Gather Town (NOT ZOOM, description below).
- Our NYSN hosts will be waiting to greet you, introduce you to others and explain how everything works.
- Once everyone is logged on, we will randomly put together teams, unless you have a team already.
- Each team will be given the synopsis of what happened and several clues that will help you solve the puzzle.
- Teams will then go off on their own and be given 20 minutes to find answers to as many clues as possible using internet searches or team collaboration.
- Each answer is worth points and there is a bonus if you solve the puzzle.
- The clues have to do with everyday life, historical things and things that are specific to people trying to navigate the pandemic.
- Prizes are awarded to the team with the most points.
The Covid Cupids are a singles group that has emerged during the pandemic. They have been bringing people together as best they can given all the changing guidelines. With so many different rules, you can imagine that everyone has their own opinions on what is right and wrong. You will follow the lives of several of the organizers and members as they plan their first BIG singles party at an indoor/outdoor venue in NYC to try and accommodate everyone’s comfort level. Unfortunately, when all is said and done, Covid has claimed another life, only this time it was at the hands of someone in the group! Help us find who did it so they don’t strike again!
Cost: $25 General Members / $15 Lifetime VIP members
What do I need?
A device with a camera and microphone. LAPTOPS OR DESKTOPS RECOMMENDED. Tablets and phones are harder to navigate.
How do I participate?
When you register, we will send you the log-in codes to join the meeting and all the information you will need to participate.
What is Gather Town:
With Gather Town you will be transported into a virtual barroom where you can walk around on your own using the arrow keys on your keyboard. You will have an avatar as if you were in a video game like “Mario Bros,” but you will also see the video of all the people participating in a separate space. It is a nice alternative to Zoom.
Can I attend alone?
Right now, 99.9% of those participating attend alone.
What if I have a roommate, friend, family member or significant other with me that wants to participate too?
We ask that you pay for each person that is participating.
How many are expected?
Most of our virtual events have 20 to 30 participants unless otherwise specified.
Who participates in these?
The demographics of our online events are varied unless we have a specific criteria listed. For the most part there are all ages and ethnicities. Realistically, this should not matter to you. If there is an event that you would like to do, then do it! It is totally different than physically being stuck at something you are not enjoying. You can “click out” at any time. If you are unhappy with the experience we will refund your fee.
If you have questions regarding; how many are registered, gender balance or ages of those registered, email email@example.com or call 212-873-2256. We are committed to making sure that the event your register for is going to be great and you get exactly what you expected!
