With nearly a half-million games shipped worldwide, Utah-based Finders Seekers is thrilling players with their mysteries games. Each month, a new adventure filled with cryptic clues, ciphers and puzzles, transports players to a different international city where they solve a riveting mystery. It's similar to an escape room but can be played at a location of your choice and at your own pace, and when you are finished you can enter to win prizes.
Since 2017, Finders Seekers has offered a fun and challenging alternative to video and "bored" games, and centers on a common objective instead of player versus player.
"We offer a unique product that promotes collaboration among players and inspires new ways of thinking," says founder Cody Dingus. "Our mysteries are great for bringing friends and families together and creating memorable events that require little planning. Everything you need is included in the box!"
An immersive adventure
Each Finders Seekers mystery comes complete with creatively designed puzzles, props and storyline that help players immerse themselves in the culture and spirit of a faraway place, as if they are actually there. For those who want to take it to the next level, Finders Seekers provides recipe ideas for authentic local food and drinks along with a music playlist to set the stage for an exciting experience.
The games can be played solo for a nice quiet night, or by groups of up to 8 or more. The content is always family-friendly but challenging, even for adults. But don't worry, hints are provided along the way if needed.
