Full description
Imagine you’re a young reporter who has just moved to New York City in hopes to make your “big break.” You’ve recently received a lead that suggests magic is here in Midtown! Your lead instructs you to meet him in Grand Central, where he’ll provide you with everything you need to discover a Secret Society of Magical Persons. As you solve challenges, the story unfolds and exact directions on your phone will guide you to the next location. Ready for an adventure? The city game starts at the Grand Central Station. It will take you around 1.5 hours to complete and you can also explore at your own pace: pause the game and resume anytime from the location where you paused it. You will finish at The Plaza Hotel. After your booking. you will receive an email on how to download the game to your phone. You can play on your own, in a large group or in several smaller groups that compete against each other and meet at the final stop of the game. For larger groups, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group. All group members will be able to download and play the city game on their phones. Alternatively, each person can make their own purchase.

It took us longer than expected, and one clue was certainly not obvious, but overall a good experience. The family liked it, and we will do another one of these games when we visit other cities

I bought this for me and my friends. It was lackluster. First, if you’re in a group and plan on staying in a group, only purchase one. You don’t need to purchase for everyone in the group because that’s a waste of money. Second, be prepared to walk in circles. There was zero rhyme or reason to the places we went to. The story also just kinda ended with no real resolution. If you did separate your group to do it as individuals everyone would end up in a different place because the order in which the stops are presented is randomized.

Big walking tour of midtown. Wonderful sites and interesting historic trivia. Some of the wordings of clues were not very specific. A lovely long walk. The best part was spending time in Bryant Park.
