Event takes place at 10:00 AM on May 30, 2015.
What's all this then?
DASH is a day-long walking puzzle solving event in the heart of Lower Downtown (LoDo) in Denver. This is the first time the event is being held in Denver, so come join us in making history! If you choose to participate, you'll get to visit some fun historical spots in LoDo, all while working together as a team to solve fun and challenging puzzles! None of the puzzles are physical- you will need to think smart and fast!
Where is this taking place?
The checkpoints are all in LoDo and the total walking distance will be under 2 miles throughout the day. The starting and ending point will be Puzzah!, which is located at 1440 Blake Street. There are going to be many cafes/eateries along the route!
How long is DASH?
We expect that most teams will solve all puzzles in 6-8 hours.
I've never done one of these before... is it hard?
When you sign up, you'll be asked for a team experience level. This year we will have puzzle tracks for two levels of team:
New Players: If you have never attended a DASH, BAPHL ("Boston Area Puzzle Hunt League") hunt, or the MIT Mystery Hunt, and you've never solved puzzles more complex than a Sudoku, American Crossword, or Paint by Numbers, this is the level for you. This may also be a good level for smaller teams of experienced players.
Experienced Players: If you have a lot of experience with past DASHes, the MIT Mystery Hunt, any BAPHL hunts, or solving a variety of other types of non-traditional puzzles, this is the level for you.
How much will this cost?
DASH charges a $45 entrance fee per team. This money will go towards permits, puzzle production, and other incidentals.
How big should my team be?
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 with too small a team.
All right, we're sold. How do we register?
Registration opens on April 1st 2015. Go to the DASH registration page to sign up or click here to get to the evenbrite page straight away!
What supplies will we need?
Each team will need an iOS7 or Android smartphone with Cluekeeper app downloaded on it to compete. Bring the usual items one would bring to a puzzle hunt (pencils, pens, eraser, ruler, scissors, glue) See FAQ on main website for more information.
What if it rains?
We'll play in any weather. If it looks particularly bad, we'll update this site with latest info on the status of Denver DASH.

Interested, but can't come out on the 30th?
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.
