Are your detective skills good enough to solve a murder?

Sign up as a team of two to six people and find out on a walking tour throughout Laguna Beach looking for clues to solve the mystery. The next sleuthing outing is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 16, says San Clemente’s Alex Blank, who also devised a similar game in his hometown, The Fantastic OC Race: San Clemente, which also runs about once a month.

Each team is given a list of suspects along with a packet of tricky clues, twisted riddles and mind-bending puzzles, Blank said. Using wits and some creativity, each location will reveal another piece of the investigation and lead you to explore Laguna’s downtown while eliminating suspects until you’ve discovered the culprit.

The game lasts about four hours and will require traveling about three miles on foot.

Sign up at Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt and use the promo code: Friend for discount tickets.

A second hunt is scheduled for Dec. 14.

Laguna Hosts Outdoor City Adventure Game

ClueHoo, an interactive outdoor city adventure game, is being introduced in Laguna Beach by its inventor, Urs Wiederkehr, who originated the game as Foxtrail in Switzerland 10 years ago, says a Chamber of Commerce statement.

The game involves viewing landmarks, discovering little-known oddities, or just wandering through scenic cityscapes and parks in a social group setting while solving clues by interacting with wacky gadgets, deciphering secret scrolls, and enjoying delightful surprises.

Goodies, prizes and admission fees are all included in the ClueHoo price, based on your age, says the website.

Wiederkehr plans to expand elsewhere in the country.
