Form a team with a few of your friends and be part of an amazing game that is sweeping the nation! 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.

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.

DASH (Different Area—Same Hunt) is a puzzle hunt event that happens simultaneously across multiple cities across the United States. The inaugural DASH in September 2009 spanned 8 cities. DASH 5 is currently being planned in 15 participating cities.

Creating the hunt is a collaborative effort of puzzle enthusiast volunteers across the country. Some cities contribute a puzzle to the event, and each event uses all the puzzles from the contributing cities.


Registration for DASH5 has concluded.
