Venice in Pairs Mode 1

Venice in Pairs mode as of November 2018

Venice is the only picture unlocked when you first start a new game of Secret Society: Hidden Mystery. Venice is the only picture to not have its own entry in the Diary.

Modifications in 2018Edit

Hidden object item changes (November 2018)Edit

Venice received an unusual makeover with the Thanksgiving Day Update (November 2018.)  The background was unchanged, but the hidden object items were changed extensively.  Many are similar to the former objects, but their appearance and hiding spots have been changed. The items can take different forms.  In addition, many other objects appear during some of the plays.  For example, sometimes there is a wooden airplane perched on the stone urn in the foreground.  The wooden airplane is not among the list of items to find. There are quite a few extraneous items.  The number of extra items which are present for a play increases as the picture level advances from Novice up.

Buddha's Square received a similar makeover with the Thanksgiving Day Update.  The Thanksgiving Day Update introduced two new pictures, Festive Patio and Dressing Room.  Festive Patio plus Venice and Buddha's Square were the first three pictures in the game to include non-permanent extraneous items in the scenes. 

Silhouette mode change and Can be found item changes (December 2018)Edit

The Christmas Magic Update modified the silhouettes in Silhouette mode to match the shape of the hidden object to be found in the current play.

The Christmas Magic Update also added the Snowflake and Christmas stocking Combining Elements to the Can be found list.  Also, the Explorer's Eye tool was removed from the Can be found list.


The following is a list of hidden object items found in Venice in most modes. Depending on the Picture Level and Game Mode you may not have to find all the items in one visit. Beginning with the Thanksgiving Day Update (November 2018), the forms of the items vary, and pairs are not identical.

Note: In addition to the items listed above, other items may also be in the list of potential rewards for a particular play of the picture depending on what game mode it is currently in (e.g. items from the Venetian Masks collection if it is in Text mode) or if there is an active quest involving the picture.


This slideshow has at least two examples of each of these modes: Text, Morphs, Silhouette, Pieces, and Pairs. This gives an idea of how the extra items can change from play to play. Unlike most pictures in the game, these extra items are in addition to the list of hidden object items which must be found.  On some browsers, the slideshow may display as individual images.
