Last Thursday I played another game that seems to appeal to a similar crowd. It's called Jericho. It's an urban spy game where two teams take turns attacking and defending. The attackers have to escort a courier across a dozen or so blocks of downtown San Francisco, and the defenders have to stop them. It's played with nerf guns, and it can be a tense mix of furious nerf gun fights and trying to spot the enemy blending in with the bystanders around you.
All you need is a nerf gun and a hat or hooded shirt (the hat is the signal that you're out). It's organized on Meetup.com; you can RSVP there and there's a forum with a few advice threads. You can also see a video on Youtube if you search for Jericho San Francisco. The video gives you a pretty good idea of what it's like. They play about once a month, and I plan to go every time.
Just played Real Escape today with a guy I met playing Jericho, and I loved it. Right now they're doing a haunted ship theme which is pretty awesome. It lasts 60 minutes, and none of the 18 teams in my group completed it, although my team was close (working on the 2nd to last item). I'm planning to do their next one in Japantown (March-April) if anyone's in.
Their newest game goes on sale tomorrow. http://realescapegame.com/rersf2_ttlab/
Let's pick a date, do it as a group and grab some food after. Who's in?
Hey everyone, I'm starting a business consulting company (finishing the website this week) that helps small businesses develop marketing plans, business plans, and effectively monetize web traffic. I'm looking to donate my services as a prize for a few contests as a way of getting my name out there. Can you guys list a few websites that are having contests like that and looking for people to donate prizes?
Hey, I don't see anywhere to report SETT bugs other than here, at least as a user who doesn't have a blog of his own. Anyway, aside from the iPhone display issue I mentioned yesterday, there's a more serious one I'm seeing today: I can't load up any posts on either the blog or community page. I click on them, and sometimes it does nothing, sometimes the screen briefly darkens or the loading message in the upper left corner comes up, but the post doesn't load. Same problem with the blog and community links in the upper left, but the About Tynan.com link works for some reason. I'm using Chrome version 33.0.1750.146 on an older MacBook Pro with OSX 10.8.5
