Chicagoans: I’m putting on my tabletop puzzle game The Unknown Islands Thursday night (November 15) at Empirical Brewery. In it, you and your team are secret agents who must break into the bag and use the objects you find inside — a bottle, ancient coins, postcards, a newspaper, a whale-watching guide, and a mysterious starfish-shaped computer — to complete the mystery. It’s two hours of intense, elegant puzzling.
