To Build a Mystery, A Panel on How to Create a Virtual Mystery Hunt for Your Own Library

July 26, 2022 at 01:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)

Members of the American Library Association's Games & Gaming Round Table (GameRT) and Graphic Novels & Comics Round Table (GNCRT) worked together over several months to create ALA LibLearnX's (LLX) Virtual Mystery Hunt. 40 puzzles were interwoven together to create a 4 day puzzling experience and we have brought those members together again for a two-hour session to discuss how they did it. Planning the experience, building puzzles, playtesting and revising, creating a framework of play, as well as marketing and advertising will all be discussed.
