Scavenger hunts help people get to know a city intimately, which may prove valuable when put in charge of hiding celebrity wax figures for the citywide celebrity-wax-figure hunt that takes place each Easter. Prepare for this venerable American tradition with today's Groupon: for $20, you get an entry to San Antonio Challenge: The Ultimate Urban Scavenger Race (a $50 value). This one-day competition takes place on Saturday, October 29, starting and finishing at Dick's Last Resort. Adults of every age, ability, and medieval guild are encouraged to participate. The race starts at 1 p.m., but participants can show up from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. to pick up prerace packets. Although today's Groupon covers entry for one participant, customers can buy up to 10 Groupons as gifts for teammates.

During the challenge, teams of two or more individuals will run helter-skelter around the city in a frantic race for cash prizes and personal pride, with a first-place award of $300. Not only will participants have to solve strands of interconnected clues that would test the deductive powers of even the most seasoned children's book detective, they'll need to plot spatiotemporal stratagems while exploring undiscovered corners of the city. Although being physically fit is a plus, quick wits and wise planning will ultimately determine the winners. Participation in the challenge gets contestants a clue packet, race-number bib, and T-shirt, and fees go toward the prize pool. The website offers a regular FAQ, as well as a Groupon FAQ detailing the intricacies of the race, what to wear the day of, why it's not okay to bring a boa constrictor, and more.

After the race is through and winners are determined, all participants are invited to partake in an after party and awards ceremony. Challenge participants can partake in drink specials and music while additional prizes, such as best costume, are announced. A venture that's equal parts brain and brawn, San Antonio Challenge presents a fun and adventurous team activity that is hard for even the most spicily seasoned cynic to resist.
