New Orleans: The Game - Multiple Locations: One or Two Zones of New Orleans: The Game Interactive Scavenger Hunt for Two or Four from Stray Boots (Up to 63% Off)

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 to New Orleans: The Game, an interactive tour from Stray Boots. Choose from the following options:

  • For $10, you get two tickets to one of two game zones (up to a $24 value).
  • For $17, you get two tickets for both game zones (up to a $40 value).
  • For $18, you get four tickets to one of two game zones (up to a $48 value).
  • For $34, you get four tickets to both game zones (up to an $80 value).

Players must have a U.S. cell phone capable of receiving texts or one with a mobile web browser.

New Orleans: 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 one or both of the game zones, dancing through Bourbon Street bars and exploring haunted hotels on the French Quarter: Ghosts, Toasts, and Jazz Notes tour and avoiding potential temporal paradoxes by boning up on history in the Garden District: Now That You Mansion It tour, which passes confederate landmarks and stately homes. Clues point the way to cultural hot spots such as St. Louis Cathedral, Commander’s Palace, and a post office that willed itself into becoming an art museum.

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—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 aqua-centric scrapbooks.

Tips

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.
