Event takes place at 9:30 AM on April 26, 2014.
DASH ("Different Area, Same Hunt") is a day-long, walking puzzle hunt. You'll travel around Portland to find and solve challenging puzzles simultaneously with teams in thirteen other cities. Read about last year's event!
You'll start at Director Park (815 SW Park Ave) in downtown Portland.

The hunt begins at 9:30AM sharp on Saturday, April 26th. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early to get your team checked in. We (Game Control) will be on site by 9:00 AM.
See below for important information on what to bring!
The ClueKeeper app, which will track your progress through DASH 6, will also enforce an 8-hour overall time limit for the event. We're starting at 9:30AM, so you'll have until 5:30PM to complete the hunt. But we hope most teams will finish well before then!
On April 26th, your team must bring:
An Android or iOS device to run the ClueKeeper app. Make sure it's charged!
You can use more than one device, but only one will be the "master" with the ability to enter start codes and answers. All other team devices will be read-only. Read more about how ClueKeeper works.
After you download and install ClueKeeper on your device, enter hunt code WELCOME to start the tutorial.
Your signed waiver. Every team member must sign the waiver!
As is our tradition in Portland, we will provide a refreshment for each team at the final location while you work on the meta-puzzle:
- This year, we're offering either a pitcher of beer of your choice or one appetizer of your choice.
- If your team includes people under the age of 21, you’ll get one appetizer of your choice.
The final location will have plenty of great food and drink available for purchase. We encourage you to partake!
If you do not bring both a ClueKeeper device and a signed team waiver, you will be unable to participate in the hunt.
We also recommend the following supplies:
Pens or pencils
Plastic sheet protectors (to cover your pages in case it rains)
Transparent adhesive tape
Picnic blanket (some locations are grassy settings without tables)
Good walking shoes (the route is about 2 miles long)
Sunscreen and/or a hat (you'll be outside for several hours)
Weather-friendly attire. Dress in layers and be prepared!
Cash for other refreshments (many stops will be at or near cafés)
If you have any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
