Saturday, April 30, there’s a multi-city puzzle hunt going on called DASH.
As the DASH folks say at their website, playdash.com, “A puzzle hunt, a unique type of treasure hunt, is a fun, interactive, outdoor event in which teams of players race to find and solve creative puzzles hidden in different locations. From fictitious graveyards to s’mores designed in morse code to music clips containing a hidden message, anything is possible to encounter when playing in the DASH puzzle hunt.”
There will be simultaneous DASH hunts going in the following cities:
- New York, NY
- Los Angeles, CA
- Chicago, IL
- Boston, MA (full!)
- Washington, DC
- Seattle, WA (full!)
- Portland, OR (full!)
- Austin, TX
- San Diego, CA
- San Mateo, CA (full!)
- Santa Rosa, CA
- Davis, CA
Are you in one of those areas? Then you can round up a team (or get hooked up with a team that needs another player) and participate! Registration fees vary by city.
I’m halfway thinking of doing DASH myself!
Still on the fence? Then Read Tyler Hinman’s preview of the event for Wired magazine. Tyler interviewed DASH founder Debbie Goldstein.
