Our newest Diversion Excursion – “The Visitor” – is available to play starting Friday, October 19 at our local board game stores! Diversions Excursions is a self-guided puzzle-based scavenger hunt in Portsmouth, NH. Complete riddles and puzzles to solve the mystery, while enjoying the beautiful historic downtown. First, you will receive a story and a packet of clues. Then, navigate around Portsmouth, using information at different locations across the city to help you solve the riddles and puzzles. Finally, use the answers to the clues to solve the final mystery!


In the newest Excursion, a shadowy figure beckons you, compelling you to follow it around Portsmouth. A number of riddles appear in front of you, but you don’t know why. Can you solve the puzzles to figure out what is going on? This Excursion takes you on a 0.9 mile walk through Portsmouth, taking between 45 and 90 minutes. This is considered an easy-to-medium difficulty hunt, best for ages 8+ and groups of 2 to 4 people. Come on down and visit our local board game stores!
