Early adventurers braved unknown lands armed with little more than all-terrain horses, a coal-burning GPS, and flat-screen televisions 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 New York: The Game scavenger hunt and tour (a $20 value).

New York: The Game sets amateur sleuths and enthusiastic sightseers loose on an exhilarating undertaking guided by text-message clues, trivia, and riddles. The game’s 11 zones include The Metropolitan Museum of Art, SoHo, and Wall Street, piquing the interest of architectural buffs, ambulatory armchair historians, and eagle-eyed window shoppers. Landmarks include well-known sites such as Rockefeller Center and Times Square and hidden-gem shops and restaurants inside Greenwich Village diamond mines.

The tour requires no previous knowledge of the city, most zones take between two and three hours to finish, and most tours can begin at any time. Adventurers play at their own pace, allowing them to spend more time at the many attractions along the way or stop to direct traffic along Fifth Avenue.

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.
