  • For $10, you get entry in one zone for two (a $24 value).

New York: The Game is an interactive tour that sets friends and family members loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by text-message clues, trivia, and riddles. Players may explore up to 13 regular game zones, romping through the eclectic shops and dive bars on the Greenwich Village tour and basking in the history and artistic expression on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In each exploration, clues point the way to such cultural hot spots as Radio City Music Hall, the Chrysler Building, and the world’s largest chocolate wall, which stands much taller than the world’s largest stack of M&Ms.

At least one player on the team will need a U.S. cell phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours requires previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace—most zones 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.

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.
