Go on an expedition across centuries, civilizations, and solar systems so surreal that you’ll think of this Upper West Side gem as the Museum of Unnatural History.  You’ll find out why a T. Rex can’t stand up, attend an Amazonian beer bash, discover New York’s largest rodent (no, it’s not your landlord), see the crappiest gift a president every gave the museum, and more.

Not a scientist?  No worries!  No previous knowledge is needed.  This humor-filled game has been recommended by the New York Times and Newsday, among other media outlets.

From dinosaurs to diamonds, planets to prehistoric people, and gorillas to gophers…this museum has it all. On teams, you’ll follow fun and funny clues that take you on a whirlwind tour of outer space, the deep sea, dig sites, and beyond. No special knowledge is needed: just comfy shoes, sharp eyes, and a sense of adventure!
