We just had our annual Aunts/Cousins weekend and I wanted to tell you that my family had a great time with Operation Our Town Scavenger Hunt. I have to say thank you, thank you, thank you. I’ve received nothing but praise from family and we have some awesome photo keepsakes from our weekend. We change each year on who is responsible for the fun and games and the group taking it on for next year and worried they cannot stand up to this one. I gave them your website to check out for ideas. – Christy Frederick, Saranac MI
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH FOR YOUR SCAVENGER HUNT MATERIALS! My boss and all the hunt participants were THRILLED with the entire thing – start to finish! We had the best time! I am still receiving praising e-mails and thank you cards from everyone a week later! I am so lucky to have played a part in bringing them a fresh, unique way of interacting with each other! I have and will recommend this to everyone I know! Thanks again, Aubrey Jones, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan

I love that my mystery games are used for all sorts of events from fundraisers to house parties to church events to … well, whatever!
Each year, the Mora Area Chamber of Commerce performs one of our murder mystery games. Karen Amundson is their fearless leader, director, actor, stage manager, stage hand and jack of all trades. Her creativity and imagination are inspiring with every adaptation she makes to our games. Her efforts combined with our mystery games make for one successful event after another, like this one:
Especially when my main male character (after he “died”) came swankering out to the bar for a drink, as a woman with very large boobies with fantastic nipples in a very tight stretchy dress! All eyes were on him/her and, well, we pretty much lost it for a while! He had his wig on backwards, but it really worked on him/her!
“Taking Life One Shot at at Time” or “The 225th Annual Meeting of the O’Gilvie Irish Whiskey Distillery” adapted from your “Next of Kin” … (Ogilvie is a small town near Mora where we live. – We’re Scandinavian around here, mostly. Not many Irish – but falling near St. Patrick’s Day – what could we do!??) We sold shots of Jameson – in special stainless steel shot glasses we had made – with O’Gilvie – Fine Irish Whiskey – printed on them.
I played Sister Coreen. It was so fun!
Thank you again, Susan.”

“We have used two of your murder mystery games for church fundraisers. The last one was Bordello of the Damned (cast pictured). We tied this in with raising awareness of human trafficking. We donated a portion to Lutheran Social Services to help with their programs. We are a small rural church with lots of people who believe we can do almost any thing. Your games have been a big hit with everyone and a blast to perform. A neighboring church asked us to help them raise money for a local man whose restaurant burned down, so I came back to you for another murder mystery. We couldn’t decide which one to do so we bought four. We will use one this winter and one next summer for hopefully a good cause. Your games work so well for us, and our shows usually sell out. Thank you, Gene Gatewood, Svea Lutheran Church, Svea, MN”
“We surprised the whole group with your Spies Like Us Team Building Mystery Game by covertly incorporating your characters into our meeting. They were prepared for a long boring lecture detailing a new product for our company from an ET Mars imposter. One of our supervisors (AKA Wanda Frohickey – one of the prime suspects in your murder mystery) jumped up and started yelling at the guest speaker saying he was not ET Mars. Everyone was stunned. They couldn’t believe she would stand up and yell at such an important representative of our company. The “real” ET Mars came out and called for security to escort the imposter from the building. Out I came in a security uniform and doing my best Barney Fife impersonation. People were laughing throughout the dinner and they still thought we actually had a new drug for the company in development. Overall, we had a great time and we really enjoyed the dinner. Thank you for the great script and making our dinner successful. Kind Regards, Daryl Dawson, Quincy, MA”
“I just came back from one of the most enjoyably gratifying events of my life. Granted, I’ve only been alive for 16 years, but this is definitely one I will remember. At my high school, I am the Treasurer of our Thespian Society Chapter. We were very low in club funds so we decided to put on a Murder Mystery Dinner to raise money. I was the director and organizer of the event, and the materials that came with the “Final Cut” mystery game were such a big help. The student actors thoroughly enjoyed breaking from the standard “stage performance” and exploring interactive and improvisational theater. We had a caterer, raffles, place cards, sternos, everything to make the dinner legitimate and, in a way, classy. The audience absolutely loved the performance. EVERYONE in the high school cafeteria enjoyed themselves tremendously, and we were able to raise over $500. Thank you so much for the basis for an amazing evening. We hope to make this an annual event, and we will of course use you next time =) Sincerely, Maria Knieste and the Hills West Thespian Society, Dix Hill, NY”
SO. MUCH. FUN.
It says, in part:
Think your kid’s posture is starting to suffer from always looking down at a cellphone?
It is, according to a national chain of physical therapy clinics, which reports that more teens than ever are complaining of “text neck,” or back and neck pain that can only be explained by the strain on the body caused by constant viewing of hand-held technology.
“We have teens experiencing the same shoulder, neck and back pain usually felt by people 30 years older,” said Megan Randich, a physical therapist and facility manager for Athletico in Westchester. “They shouldn’t be experiencing those issues.”
Randich added that another way for teens to combat text neck: Get outside and be active.
“Before this generation, there was so much more outdoor free play,” she said. “Activities used to counter any poor posture or positioning. They’re no longer doing that.”
Our tag line appropriately enough is, “Get Out and Play!” Hmmmm, I like this solution. Don’t you?
Susan, what a GREAT experience. I have long been a fan of scavenger hunts (since my teenager years) but haven’t done one in so long. Our son’s 16th birthday was on New Year’s Eve and he wanted a party. These days it is so hard to entertain teenagers — and to keep them out of trouble at the same time. Also, with so much hoopla around birthday parties it’s hard to come up with something original that doesn’t involve hiring someone or renting out a party facility. Your product saved my life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had planned to do a scavenger hunt but waited until 3 days before his party to pull it all together. So just 48 hours before 16 sixteen year olds were to show up at my house, I was in a panic. Until, of course, I found you on the Internet. Your Our Town hunt was perfect. It was easy to modify, thorough in every aspect, and was the only reason our son’s 16th birthday party was a success. The kids loved it — and declared that we should have an annual scavenger hunt for Mack’s birthday. Thank you so much == and kudos to you for offering such a creative service, a quality product, and great service. Best wishes in your business. I’m spreading the word all over Atlanta! And I’ll stand by my word: I got more than my money’s worth! Karen Sherman, Atlanta, GA. Read more teen scavenger hunt reviews here.
