It’s New Year’s Eve, the biggest night out of the year! Every Meet Up and Social Group are having parties.  This year Midnight Matty is looking to ring in the new year with a bang, but the only kiss he will get at midnight is The Kiss of Death!  Join us for this fun online Murder Mystery Team Scavenger Hunt where you get to socialize with other members of our group in a fun way while trying to solve the mystery of what happened to Matty.  Along the way you will also get to learn some fun facts and history about NYC during the holidays. No experience is necessary.

How it works:

  • Register below and we will send you the codes on how to join the group via Zoom.
  • When you log in you will be randomly put onto teams with other fun members and friends.  If you have friends that you’d like to play with just tell the host at the beginning.
  • Once the teams are set our host will describe the situation and give you the clues you will need to follow to help solve the mystery.
  • Each team will decide how to approach getting the clues.
  • At the end of the allotted time the team with the most points or that solves the mystery wins!

The Story

Midnight Matty is coming down from Upstate NY to celebrate New Years in Times Square. He has never been to the city before and plans to take advantage of his time there.  He has searched dozens of Meet Up group parties and events, sights to see, the holiday decorations, potential hotel rooms and the best place to be at Midnight.  Unfortunately, after the ball has dropped and everyone has gone home Matty has met a horrible fate where he will never get to see another new year!

He documented his entire plan and trip on social media.  It is up to you to follow his postings during the day and night to solve the mystery.  You will be teaming up with others in the group to solve puzzles and search the web for the clues that will help you find the answers.
