The Murder in Old Philadelphia Scavenger Hunt

Can you solve this historic district murder mystery?

Egads! There’s been a murder near Independence Hall—and the victim was the Watson Adventures staffer who had created a hunt for your group. Before he died, he left a disturbing clue behind: a star drawn on the ground, in his own blood. Figure out what it means, along with the other puzzling clues linked with secrets in the neighborhood, and you just might prevent an international incident with disastrous consequences.

Along the way, you’ll also uncover the secrets of the historic district and Society Hill area, where many a surprising detail turns out to be integral to solving the case. The trail of clues leads from Washington Square to City Tavern, from St. Peter’s Church to Ben Franklin’s privy, from Market Street to Pine Street.

You’ll need to make sense of cryptic hints, crack a code, and send a text message to the dead man. No pressure or anything, but the fate of the free world just might hinge on your teamwork.
