Dispatch #11 🗝 Puzzle in a building 🏢 Escape with Zelda
By The Mystery League • Issue #11
Happy 2017, the first prime year since 2011, and the last until 2027. MIT Mystery Hunt is just a few days away, and for the first time in my life, I’m going. Can’t believe it took me this long. If you’ll be there too, let’s find a way to high five as we scurry in different directions across campus.
Meanwhile, we’ve sold out three Creatures on the Loose! events. At this rate, there’ll definitely be more. If you’d like to have us put the game on privately for you, hit reply and let me know. The game works great for groups of 5 to 50 people. 

Can You Solve This Building?
Game design professor is asked to build puzzles permanently into the construction of a new building on campus. This is my dream project.
Zelda gets the SCRAP Real Escape Game treatment
There’s little explanation about how this game will work, but SCRAP’s got a record of putting on a good show. This isn’t a room escape, but it is a puzzle game. Your team will be in a room, solving the same game as lots of others. Tickets for Seattle, Chicago, New York and Houston go on sale Jan 24.
Can You Solve the Poison Wine Challenge?
You’re about to throw a party with a thousand bottles of wine, but you just discovered that one bottle is poisoned! Can you determine exactly which one it is…
