Halloween Murder Mystery & Virtual Scavenger Hunt

Online event

*TO ATTEND REGISTER AT - https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/murder-mystery--scavenger-hunt/dates/ (Event time is 8pm EASTERN STANDARD TIME) We are taking our popular Halloween Murder Mystery & Scavenger Hunt online! Join us for a fun night of exploring and socializing as you follow the exploits of a someone who went to a big Halloween party but left in a body bag! It is up to you to solve the mystery of what happened. We will put you together with others to trace our victim's steps during the day which will give you clues as to what happened. No experience or prior knowledge is needed! How it works: Register for a ticket and we will send you the code to join our Zoom meeting day of the event. Once logged in your host will explain the rules and randomly split you into teams (unless you have a team already). If you are registering with someone that will be sharing your Zoom log in please select 2 tickets (or more if you have multiple people playing with you). When the hunt starts we will email the clues page and you will start your online journey. Each group will have 30 minutes to find as many clues as possible. You will use those clues to piece together the answer to the mystery. What do I need? Computer with webcam or tablet/smartphone Can I attend alone? Right now 95% of those participating attend alone. How many are expected? This is a multi-group event so don't pay attention to RSVPs. Most of our virtual events have up to 20 participants unless otherwise specified. How much? $15-$20 depending upon how early you register (and # of spots are available)

Escape Zoom! (Online Escape Room & Murder Mystery Event)

Online event


*FOR TICKETS - https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/escape-zoom-online-escape-room--murder-mystery-event/dates/ (*Sundays & Tuesdays. Times are EASTERN STANDARD) WHAT TO EXPECT: Come experience the revolutionary online event that's taking the city by storm! Escape Zoom is a revolutionary online experience that combines the best aspects of escape rooms, murder mysteries and trivia nights into one awesome event! Use your wits, detective skills and trivia knowledge to find clues and solve puzzles. It has been called, "The most fun you'll ever have from home!". Get ready to be transported to an exciting world of puzzles and mysteries to solve. A question we get a lot is, "If I've been to an Escape Zoom event in the past, can I do it again? Will it be the same event?". The answer to that is... Each event has a theme (ie. Time Bomb, Murder At The Ball, Back To The 80s & 90s, etc.). As long as it's a different theme/name than you've done in the past, you're all good and the event will have completely different puzzles/questions. *QUICK NOTE: THIS IS A MULTI MEETUP GROUP EVENT. 10 OTHER MEETUP GROUPS HAVE ALSO BEEN INVITED SO WE'RE EXPECTING A GREAT TURNOUT. THE EVENT PRICE WILL BE GOING UP AS SPOTS FILL UP AND WE GET CLOSER TO EVENT TIME. IF ONE TIME SLOT OR THEME IS SOLD OUT YOU CAN SELECT ANOTHER. HOW IT WORKS: After you register for a ticket you'll be given a link that to a Zoom event. At the time of the event, you'll go to that link and the excitement begins! Our live, friendly host/game master will welcome you and make quick introductions among the group. You'll be in a Zoom room with between 10 and 20 other people and will be segmented into smaller teams. The team to solve the most puzzles/questions wins a prize! If you have friends who sign up as well you can ask to be put on the same team (Typically about 70% of people sign up on their own and 30% sign up with friends so you'll have fun whether you sign up alone or with friends). The event is so much fun and usually sparks new friendships! SPACE IS LIMITED AND SPOTS FILL UP FAST SO WE RECOMMEND SIGNING UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING: "Wow! That was crazy intense. My heart was racing a mile a minute." - Alex M. "This should be on everyone's bucket list. I can't even explain how much fun I had." - Jasmine R. "Awesomely fun! Every time you solve something you get a huge adrenaline rush." - Douglas H. *REGISTER AT - https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/escape-zoom-online-escape-room--murder-mystery-event/dates/ (once you purchase, you'll receive an e-ticket receipt confirming your registration. Don't worry if you're listed on Meetup as "unpaid". As long as you paid, you're in!).

Name That 80s & 90s Song/Beat Shazam (Live Game/Fundraiser)

Online event


*TO ATTEND GET TICKET AT - https://www.socialevents123.com/event-details.aspx?id=8656#tix (*Fundraiser - A portion of ticket sales go to various charities who are helping with Covid-19 Relief) Here is your opportunity to have some fun playing our live "Name That Song/Shazam" game. This time we will be doing 80s & 90s songs! You will also get to socialize and make other friends from the safety and comfort of your home. Prizes include Amazon gift cards and free future events. This completely online event will be LIVE and you will be able to see and hear the other participants while playing. In addition you get to meet and interact with some of the other participants. This event will be held in a Zoom Virtual Room which you would access through your computer and webcam, or via your Smart Phone/Tablet. Zoom is super easy to use. THIS IS A SINGLE PLAYER GAME. EACH PERSON NEEDS to have their own registration and will access from their own device. If you want to play with another person from the same device (each person still needs their own registration), you can do so for fun, but would not be eligible to win any rounds (not fair to single players). HOW IT WORKS: 1. You will join the virtual room at the specified time. Prior to starting the game we will virtually introduce you to some of the other participants (if for any reason you are not interested in meeting the other participants, you can opt out of this part). 2. At game time, your host will play clips of songs. Your goal is to come up with the correct Title and Artist for each song. Once the round is over (about 6-10 songs), we will go through the answers and determine who had the highest score for the round. They will get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a prize at the end of the event. 3. We will play multiple rounds so each time you win a round, you will earn another raffle entry. At the end of the event, we will pull raffle tickets and award prizes. HOW TO FIND VIRTUAL ROOM: After you purchase your ticket, you will get a confirmation appear on your screen along with the zoom link for you to use to log in. *Ticket price ranges from $15-$20 depending upon how early you purchase.
