The hunt is played on teams of two to six people. One smartphone is required per team to help solve the puzzle. Total running time is approximately 2.5 hours.

Based on a Sherlock Holmes story... Wealthy businessman Hilton Cubitt has been found shot dead in his elegant home. Next to his body lay his wife Elsie, unconscious and seriously wounded. Police plan to charge Elsie with murder, and currently see her shooting as a failed suicide attempt. A week earlier, Hilton sought the help of the Watson Adventures code-breaking experts. Elsie had received emails containing images of dancing stick figures. They seemed to cause her great distress, but she insisted that they were meaningless. The crime scene included a crumpled copy of a scavenger hunt involving nudes in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where Elsie works on ancient manuscripts as a cryptographer. We believe that the scavenger hunt is somehow linked with the dancing figure emails—and we think these messages can prove that Elsie is innocent. Who murdered Hilton Cubitt? What is the secret of the dancing nude figures? We need your help! See if your team of sleuths can figure out whodunnit on this unusual murder mystery scavenger hunt. This is one of our more challenging hunts. We strongly recommend hunting with a team of three or more. If you sign up with fewer than three people, we suggest pairing up with others at the start of the hunt to form a larger team.
