    Like the puzzle solving aspect of this activity. Has aspects of the Story Game and Instigator, (two other great activities) where the person who is it has to figure out the key.

    Love the aspect that the group creates a key each time and that this is also something that can be done online too. Great for people who love to figure out puzzles and get to engage the brain more.
