A company called Stray Boots helps people get to know the Big Apple through a scavenger hunt that sends folks on a wild goose chase through various parts of NYC to find different landmarks with clues sent to them via text message.
To get a new clue, players must answer a question about the landmark.
Creator Avi Millman says, Its a really fun way to see the city. New York becomes a big game board.
Not only does the game take visitors to well-known attractions like Times Square and Rockefeller Center, theyll also peak into a bucket of frogs in Chinatown to get the full New York experience.
However, Millman assures he wont send players into the ghetto, though it might be fun to create a scarier version of the game.
He jokes, All youd need are comfortable shoes and a weapon.
