Early adventurers braved unknown lands armed with little more than all-terrain horses, a coal-burning GPS system, and plasma TVs useful only to barter for lukewarm porridge. Revel in the convenience of more advanced exploring with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to New York: The Game's The Perfect New York Date, an interactive tour for couples presented by Stray Boots (a $24 value).
Players must have a U.S. cell phone capable of receiving texts or one that has a mobile web browser.
New York: The Game is an interactive tour that sets friends, family members, and couples loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by text-messaged clues, trivia, and riddles. This Valentine's Day season, sweethearts can fan the flames of love by exploring some of the Big Apple's most romantic spots and hidden gems instead of setting ablaze the tablecloth during a romantic dinner. During the two- to four-hour trek, pairs will soak up a bit of culture at an art gallery in SoHo, play with puppies at a pet shop, and munch on tasty treats at quaint Village locales. After a brief stop to practice poetry or tag-team freestyle a mutually adored rap song, duos weave through charming parks and passageways to a secret garden, where they can bask in alone time while tucked away from the bustling metropolis.
At least one player on the team will need a U.S. cell phone to receive clues, and none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city. Adventurers play at their own pace, which allows them to spend more time learning about the city and photographing vibrant fire hydrants.
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.
