For 24 hours, GoBe Games turns the world upside down for around 1,000 groups of friends. Participants' smart phones take them on a city-wide adventure, which presents more than 300 challenges that test the body and mind in categories such as "smart," "fit," and "charitable."
Climb a tree. Shot-put a cantaloupe. Eat a tuna fish sandwich before kissing a team member. Donate a shirt off of your back. Those are just some of the potential challenges gamers unlock and complete, as they log victories and rack up points. Live leader boards track all teams, and there are plenty of rewards for coming out on top. GoBe Games ends with a free concert, during which organizers hand out prizes and encourage enthusiastic yelling. The group who comes in first wins a trip to the GoBe Championships in Costa Rica.
