Mystery League ✈️ Denver

On July 11, I’ll be in Denver at the Crooked Stave to put on my newest puzzle game, Mystery in the Galleries. It’s a 90-120 minute escape-room-at-a-table for teams of 6. EventBrite will be set up soon, so for now, follow this link to save yourself a spot.


Name any movie (there are lots) that could fit in the missing blank of this ordered set:

North by Northwest
Cedar Rapids
The Ghost and Mr. Chicken
Space Jam
