Event takes place at 10:00 AM on April 26, 2014.
DASH is a day-long walking puzzle solving event. If you choose to participate, you'll get to see some of the sights of Jamaica Plain, all while working together as a team, wracking your brains solving puzzles involving wordplay, spatial reasoning, and pop trivia.
The details are still being worked out, but we expect a walking distance of about 2-3 miles throughout the day. The starting and ending points should be in Jamaica Plain near the MBTA (either the Orange Line or the Green Line). There are places to eat lunch along the route.
We expect that most teams will solve all puzzles in 6-8 hours.
When you sign up, you'll be asked for a team experience level. This year we will have puzzle tracks for three levels of team:
DASH charges a $40 entrance fee per team. This money will go towards permits, puzzle production, and other incidentals.
Payment details are forthcoming. Watch this space.
We recommend a team of 3-4 people. Too large a team and it becomes harder to collaborate on the puzzles; too small and having so few solvers may slow you. Also, since we charge a flat fee per team, it becomes more expensive per person.
Registration opens on Friday, February 28, at 10am. Go to the DASH registration page to sign up.
Bring the usual items one would bring to a puzzle hunt. See the FAQ for a list. Android or iOS7 smartphones are a necessity since we will be using an app called Cluekeeper for the hunt.
We'll play in any weather. If it looks particularly bad, we'll update this site with latest info on the status of Boston DASH.
Please email email@example.com for further questions.
We will need at least one team of people to playtest the entire puzzle prior to the hunt. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering or would like to be a part of early playtests.
Puzzles will be available after the game.
