Like many other Games inspired by the movie Midnight Madness (1980), players travel from location to location in teams, solving the puzzles they find there in order to learn the next location.
Puzzles take many forms. You might find a cryptic riddle, a peculiar map, a locked container, or a strangely-colored object that appears to make no sense at all. As gamers, your role is to extract the solution from each of these, and follow the chain to the finish line.
This is not meant to be a contest, there is no prize (apart from bragging rights) for finishing first. Or second, or third. We appreciate spirited rivalry, but we also encourage you to help each other out if you are so inclined.
You may have heard of or played Games like this one that lasted overnight, with six to eight people in a well-stocked van, and required grueling efforts in puzzle-solving.
This Game is smaller.
You will finish this Game on the same day you start it (many of you by nightfall, and all of you within 12 hours). You need only three to five people in a regular car. Your puzzles will be somewhat easier, and never need specialized skills (particularly technological ones) or equipment.
With this Game we hope to open the experience up to people who are intrigued by the idea, but put off by the intensity of longer Games. Veteran players may also enjoy it and are welcome to apply, but don't cry foul if you find it tame in comparison!
