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 for the Philly: The Game scavenger hunt-style tour (a $24 value).

Philly: The Game sets amateur sleuths and enthusiastic sightseers loose on an exhilarating knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by text-message clues, trivia, and riddles. The game's three zones include historic Old City, where players follow their embedded mind maps through cobblestone streets and alleys, traipse through the Second Bank of the U.S., raise their flags at the Betsy Ross House, and hunt for the remnants of a lightning-struck key at Ben Franklin’s gravesite. The Center City zone sends pairs of knowledge conquistadors through other iconic landmarks, with clues scattered among the tasty bites at Reading Terminal Market, the politician-filled offices at City Hall, and the deep and booming organs that open wormholes inside the Wannamaker Building. Or, try your luck in the South Street & the Italian Market scavenger hunt, where scent-followers trace the trails of Mediterranean-inspired eats, making stops along the way and hunting for hints at vintage shops, cheesesteak palaces, and mosaic and murals that depict the city’s ancient Egyptian origins.

While at least one player on the team will need a U.S. cell phone and plan to receive clues, none of the self-guided tours require previous knowledge of the city, and most zones take two to three hours to finish. Adventurers play at their own pace, allowing them to spend more time learning about the city, gawking at the many attractions along the way, or photographing vibrantly colored fire hydrants for aqua-centric scrapbooks.

Philly: The Game can be played with any U.S. cell phone and plan. Normal text message rates apply.

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.
