Get Inside The Game

What's The Game?
Check out this wikipedia article for a more detailed explanation of The Game. Basically, The Game is a series of puzzle challenges (clues). Check out some of the practice clues here. Each challenge solved leads to the location where the next challenge can be found. During the course of this version of The Game, a team will travel all around San Francisco. The final clue will lead teams to the finish line at an undisclosed location. (Our estimate is that you'll get there late afternoon/ early evening).

What you need to do:

  • Rally a team. Trust me, you want to have more than one brain working to decipher the clues. Recommended team size is 4-5 people (# of people you can squeeze into a car or cab if need be). If you're looking for a team, let me know and I can help match you up with people, or check out the google doc here.
  • Register Once you've found a team, shoot me an email with your team name, the names/emails of everyone on your team, and the cell phone number of your team's key contact. Deadline to email me: Friday, September 18th at 11am. I will be producing the clues on Friday, so if you don't register before the deadline, I won't have clues for your team on Saturday.
  • Pay the entry fee ($10 per team). Entry fees will cover the material costs for clues. Bring your team's $10 to the starting point at the top of the waterfall at Yerba Buena Gardens.
  • Get ready. Figure out what your team's knowledge/trivia strengths and weaknesses are. Check out the "Logistics of Play" tab and the "Prepare" tab. Gather reference materials. Solve the practice clues, which you can get here or by emailing me.
  • Show up with your team on top of the waterfall at Yerba Buena Gardens (next to the Metreon at 4th and Mission, 3 blocks from Montgomery BART) at 11am SHARP on September 19th. I will cover the rules of play at 11am, and initial clues will be handed out at 11:30am. This is a RACE, so you don't want to be late!
