Why is there a two-player minimum for adult Missions? Because we don’t want to destroy your relationship. Most people play Mystery Missions in teams of two. Many friends and couples have tried to play Mystery Missions by sharing one set of clues. Most of them no longer speak to each other, and The Sonomist doesn't want to be responsible for that.

They make it look so easy, don't they?

Can I purchase 3 or 4 or 5...? Of course! It's a two-player minimum, not a two-player maximum. However, if you are purchasing more than 10, please purchase a few days before you plan to hunt in order to ensure that we have the inventory, or feel free to contact us to make arrangements.

Why does my Mystery Mission look different than the one in the video? We upgraded the packaging to provide an even more upscale experience.

Can I drive through my Mystery Mission? Have you seen what parking is like? Wear good walking shoes and be ready to stroll for a while. The good thing is that you can stop as often as you need. You can even have lunch, go wine tasting or shop along the way. 

Can I use my phone or ask strangers for help? You sure can.

You claim that Mystery Missions are family friendly. Are they for kids? Healdsburg Mystery Missions are family friendly in that there is nothing naughty or illegal, but kids under 16 years of age will have more fun if they play with an adult.

Do you have a Mystery Mission for kids? Yes! Our Windsor Kids Mystery Mission is designed for kids ages 8-14, and you can learn more right here.


I've solved the riddle, but the answer doesn't appear to be here. One of two things has happened. Either you have gotten the clue wrong, or the answer has been moved or destroyed. The vast majority of answers are in permanent locations that won't change, but unfortunately dud clues happen occasionally. The Sonomist tries to stay on top of the situation, and she makes changes to the clues when businesses close or landmarks are damaged. It would be great if you could let us know if you think you have a bad clue, and we'll either fix it for the next printing or mock you for getting it wrong. Or both!

What do I win? The satisfaction of having spent a couple of hours having fun and seeing parts of Healdsburg and Windsor you never knew existed.

I totally hated this, and I want my money back. All sales are final.

I am a business owner in Windsor or Sebastopol and would like to offer my place of business as a super-secret bunker. OH BOY! We want to talk to you yesterday. Please contact us soon.

Why is this and not We already owned the URL. That’s it. No other reason.

Who is The Sonomist? This is the same question she asks herself every single day.
