New York: The Game interactive tour sets amateur sleuths and enthusiastic sightseers loose on an exhilarating, knowledge-fueled undertaking guided by text-message clues, trivia, and riddles. The game's 11 zones, include Fifth Avenue and Rockefeller Center, Soho, and Times Square and Broadway. Other sights and landmarks include Greenwich Village, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the gold-paved streets of Wall Street.
While at least one player on the team will need a US 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.
