Early adventurers braved unknown lands armed with little more than all-terrain horses, a coal-burning GPS, and flat-screen TVs used for bartering with local natives. Revel in the convenience of modern swashbuckling with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to the Boston: The Game scavenger hunt and tour (a $20 value).

Boston: The Game sets amateur sleuths and enthusiastic sightseers loose on an exhilarating undertaking guided by text-message clues, trivia, and riddles. The game's zones include historic Beacon Hill, where architectural buffs and eagle-eyed window shoppers can traipse the Freedom Trail, be bewitched by Boston Common, lobby each other outside the Massachusetts State House, and grab a pint at Cheers, the bar made famous by TV’s Boston Legal. The Back Bay zone sends pairs of knowledge conquistadors through other iconic landmarks, with clues scattered among the eclectic stores of Newbury Street, the exquisite mansions on Commonwealth Avenue, and the info-rich aromas that coax wayward books into the Boston Public Library. In the Downtown Boston scavenger hunt, ambulatory historians can trace the trails of the founding fathers from the Old South Meeting House to Fanieul Hall, with stops along the way at the nation’s first public school, Quincy Market, and other points of interest.

The tour requires no previous knowledge of the city, most zones take two to three hours to finish, and most tours can begin at any time. Adventurers play at their own pace, allowing them to spend more time gawking at the many attractions along the way or photographing vibrantly colored fire hydrants for aqua-centric scrapbooks.

Stray Boots

Stray Boots is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by clues, trivia, and riddles. They operate in cities across the country, dividing them into special themed tours that contain the historical sites, local areas of interest, or eccentric child mayors unique to each city. During the explorations, clues point the way to cultural hot spots, which Stray Boots communicates via their official mobile app. At least one player on the team will need an iPhone or Android phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most tours take two to three hours to finish—which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants for aquacentric scrapbooks.

Customer Reviews

A fun time, seeing and learning about places we'd never see on our own.
D M. · November 13, 2016
It was fun, the route was very easy to follow and we learned a few things. Its really more of a walking tour than a scavenger hunt per se. We went with 2 seasoned Manhattan-ites and they were surprised they learned a few new things. I'd recommend it more for visitors to the city. It took us about 1h 30 to complete. The app is well designed and easy to use.
