We will send you a series of approximately 20 clues by text or App. Each clue will lead you on an easy walk to a different location where you will have to find a hidden word or solve a puzzle.
Once you find the answer text it back to us. If correct you'll immediately get the next clue.
The clues will lead you to local icons, fascinating businesses, and to secret places even the locals don’t know about. Along the way there are optional breaks so you can get refreshment.
There's no shame in asking for a little help, but you'll add a 10-minute penalty to your score for each hint.

Have you unlocked the secret? Are you sure? When you're ready to solve the final clue text it and see if you've unlocked the mystery. If you're wrong, you'll receive a time penalty and can guess again.
Once you've solved the mystery - come back to the website and see where you ranked on the leaderboard. Celebrate if you placed well. Or laugh at those people who didn't take time to enjoy the town as much as you did!
