It’s hard to believe that Manhattan was once rolling hills and farms. A lot has changed since the days of the Native American inhabitants and early Dutch settlers!  Join us for a fun night of learning, exploring and socializing as we send you on a virtual scavenger hunt through the years from the early days until now.  It’s fun, easy and a great way to interact with others in the group.How it works:

  • Register and we will send you a code to join our Zoom meeting where we will explain the rules and how to play.
  • We will randomly split you into separate rooms with 3-5 people where you will work with your teammates to find the answers to the clues we provide.
  • Each team will have the same amount of time to complete all the challenges.  The teams with the most answers will win prizes!

All the clues are online, no prior knowledge or experience is necessary!

What will we be looking for and how do we find the answers?

We will provide topics, questions and website links that will help you find the answers you need.  It is up to your team members how you want to approach finding them.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are signing up with a room mate or significant other just click on the number of people you will be having participate.  If you are signing up with friends and want to be on a team together you can tell us that night and we will put you together.LIMIT 5 PERSONS ON EACH TEAM.

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.

Dress Code:

Pajamas & t-shirts are acceptable (just, please be wearing clothes!). Also we all realize that our beards are growing and our hair looks like hell. (Besides most computer cameras are not that clear anyway)
