Come join The Game Theatre and their cast of Suspects for Midnight Millions - an immersive social game of spending, thievery and murder mystery madness!  

Voted Top 10 New Year’s Eve event in New York City by both Timeout NY and Untapped Cities!

In this interactive murder mystery you will be given $1,000,000 in money or precious items to spend or sell with the objective of solving a murder.  Game Theatre Performers will be the Suspects and, by making sales (“deals”) with other players, you can then ask a Suspect a question to uncover clues about the case. Your evening’s goal is to spend or sell everything before the ball drops to solve a mystery and inherit a financial empire!

Midnight Millions is designed by The Game Theatre and is inspired by the turn of the century novel Brewster’s Millions.

**The Mystery**

One of the wealthiest people in the world, global financier Lord Oswald McCallister, was discovered murdered in his office. In his will he set forth that:

In the event of my murder my estate's executor will hand over $1,000,000 dollars in money from my bank, or $1,000,000 worth of precious items from my safe, to anyone willing to investigate the circumstances of my tragic death. The investigator must spend or sell everything in order to obtain valuable clues in the hopes that they will be able to identify the individual who was responsible for my demise. The investigator who spends all their money, or sells all of their precious items, by the end of the night AND correctly identifies my murderer will be then gifted a check for $100,000,000 (One Hundred Million Dollars) from my estate as a grand award for obtaining justice for me!”

You will be one of the investigators accepting the case of a lifetime.

All of the Suspects will be in the room, and each one is in trouble and needs something desperately. The Suspects will tell you what they need and if you buy/sell what a Suspect needs you've then made a "deal". Deals allow you to ask a Suspect a "Yes or No" question, and they must respond truthfully. The more deals you make the more information you can gather from the Suspects and one another!

If you conclude the evening with $0.00 net worth then you will be able to point a finger at the Suspect you believe was responsible for the crime. Simply put: this is a large-scale, easy to learn game of Murder Mystery Monopoly played in reverse!

Our private venue is a unique space where you can socially navigate this mysterious party to make deals and try to fleece information from the Suspects. There is also plenty of time to relax, socialize, eat and drink as you share the information and clues you've gathered. Enjoy a holiday evening where you will find yourself engaging with every other person in the room. That's what "Game Theatre" is all about!
