San Francisco, CA

Event takes place at 9:00 AM on May 30, 2015.

When and where?

Registration for the San Francisco event will open at 8:00 AM and the game will start by 9:00 AM. We'll wrap up by 6 PM, Pacific time.

The exact start location will be emailed to registered teams after ticket sales close.

What to bring?

  • At least one Android or iOS7 smartphone running the ClueKeeper App. Register for a ClueKeeper account, download the hunt, and add your teammates before you arrive.

  • Scissors

  • Pens, pencils, highlighters, scratch paper

  • Removable scotch tape, colored pens/pencils

  • A picnic blanket and clipboards: many locations are grassy spots without tables

  • Food and $$ for buying food on the route.

  • See the FAQ for a more comprehensive list.

What about the weather?

The event will be in San Francisco, so please come prepared for the City By The Bay's ever-changing weather. You will be walking and puzzling outside for much of the day. Bring sunscreen, layer up, etc.

How much physical activity is involved?

Expect to walk 3 miles over the course of the day. Our route does have hills. Let us know when you arrive if this is a concern for your team.

What is a DASH team?

The optimal size for a team is 3-5 players. More than 5 and it gets difficult for everyone to collaborate, we highly encourage splitting into two teams.

If several of your team members have done puzzle hunts before (DASH, BANG, MIT Mystery Hunt, etc) you probably want to pick "EXPERT".

If no one or only one person on your team has done this sort of thing before, or if you previously found the puzzles more hard than fun, pick "BEGINNER".

How do I register my team?

Register at Eventbrite.

What if I don't have a team, or I'm looking for people to join my team?

Post in the matchmaking thread on Facebook to find other people looking for a team.
