CYOA 2010 Location Annoucement

Hola Banditos,

Without further ado, here are the final details for Choose Your Own Adventure!

Christopher Columbus Park, at this exact location.

Start Time:
There is no official start time for this event as we will be sending out groups over the course of an hour. None-the-less, please arrive anytime between 1:00 and 2:00PM. (Showing up at 1:30PM or 1:59PM is completely fine.)

Team Setup:
Teams will be formed on-site, but if you already have a group, merely show up with everyone and we'll take it from there!

Extra Equipment:
We highly recommend bringing extra water (it's hot hot hot) and, if you have one, a digital camera.

This has nothing to do with the event, but, we just released our limited edition cloudy shirt! Just $15 and all proceeds go to keeping events such as these free. Also, you get to be both inconspicuous and hip at the same time. A must have for anyone's wardrobe.

That's really all! Get excited to shake some dust as over 400 participants have already registered. We'll see you sometime between 1 and 2pm, tomorrow/July 17th at Christopher Columbus Park.

As always, spread the word and check out the website for all the details.


Choose Your Own Adventure 2010

Date: July 17th 1:00 - 2:00 PM
Location: TBA July 16th @ 11:59 pm

Hola Banditos! It's that time of year again, when the sun is shining, the college students leave, and Banditos Misteriosos have their annual Scavenger Hunt! But something's a little different this year. We decided that, instead of doing our usual straight-forward Boston-based scavenger hunt, we'd be introducing a new kind of twist that we're pretty excited about. And we hope you are too.

Do you remember reading Choose Your Own Adventure novels when you were but a baby Bandito? You know, where you were given a choice of action at the end of each page of narrative and the decision you made informed the story that unfolded? Well, have we got a treat for you. We've created a story that unfolds in real time at locations across the city, and the decisions that you and your team make influence the story that you'll experience. A priceless Bostonian artifact has been stolen and it's up to you to gather the clues, interview the suspects, fulfill the challenges, and find it so that you may return it to its rightful owner.

- We ask that all participants register beforehand, so that we have some idea of numbers and teams. Fill out our handy dandy registration form and you'll be on your way! As before, teams of 8 to 10 people will be made on-site, so you don't have to worry about coming with a team. >>Registration form
- This event isn't about competition, it's about creating a story with your teammates and solving the puzzle. As such there is no definite start time - teams will start their story on a rolling basis, from 1 to 2 pm. Feel free to show up anytime within this hour, and take your time with the mystery!
- You don't need to bring anything except for enthusiasm (and maybe bottled water, it'll be hot out).
