Break into teams of 3-4 players and race each other around the town, working together to solve clues and gather vital information to unwrap a Christmas-themed mystery.
All teams will start together, being given a unique code that will activate a series of text clues that will be sent to the team cellphones. Starting with a tricky puzzle that will ensure staggered departures, each team will have to work together to carefully read, interpret and solve the clues.
During the race teams will visit local icons and hidden gems, interacting with businesses along the way, and requiring excellent teamwork to efficiently solve the clues. Correct answers will automatically generate the next clue, but beware – wrong answers and texted hints all cost time penalties added at the end. The fastest group rarely wins, but the team that works together most effectively almost always does!
