Meet the City game

Meet the City

What: Meet the City game (description below)
When: May 2nd at 5:45pm-8:30pm
Where: Allentown (starting location TBA)
Who: Teams of 3 people

WHY? Because it’s a lot of fun!

Meet the City is a two hour, supercharged scavenger hunt that encourages teams to investigate different areas of the city and interact with the people in it. Various clues lead players to ten checkpoint locations and their next photo assignment. Each checkpoint has a topic and a minimum number of people required for it. Some topics are meant to cause reflection (Worst Presidential Moment) and others are just plain fun (Broadway Musical). After deciding on an idea for the topic’s photo, teams must get other non-players to help them act it out and then send the photo via picture messaging to the Central Game Phone. When the two hours are up all teams meet back at the designated location to share experiences and judge each photo submission. Points are counted and the winning team receives the coveted Roaming Gnome.

How?!? If you have a full team of three – that’s great! But if you have two or one people I will find you a full team. Just send me your names, email addresses, and a team name (if there’s two or three of you) to:

You will get a reminder email a few days before the game.
