HOW TO PLAY

THE RULES




Pick a trail and sign up your team(s) and we'll send a text with a start location. You have 30 days to start your trail.


When you are at the start location, text GO to start the trail and receive your first clue!


Text the RIGHT ANSWER back and receive the next clue (as well as a piece of trivia).


Text back the WRONG ANSWER and you will get a 5 minute penalty on your overall time. Try again and submit a new answer.


Text the word HINT for a little help with your current clue. You will get a 5 minute penalty on your overall time, so use your hints wisely!


Text SKIP to move on to the next clue. You will get a 20 minute penalty on your overall time.


Some clues give you a break to let you enjoy the location it took you to (most likely a cosy tavern). Breaks usually last between 30 to 60 minutes and are optional. You can text GO to skip the break and proceed to the next clue. Otherwise the clue will be sent when the break ends.


You can add another phone to receive texts for your team at any point during the trail. Just text their phone number and their phone will also receive clues and progress the game. You don’t have to worry about a team member running low on phone battery or losing reception!
