The cradle of liberty, literature, and laughs
American patriots fought the British here, famous writers walked and talked here—and now you can play here!

Even if you can’t tell a Minuteman from a Transcendentalist, you’ll love figuring out the game’s quirky clues and entertaining challenges. No prior knowledge of the area or history is required. Just bring your sense of humor, your comfy shoes, and your teamwork skills.
Companies in the Boston suburbs have raved about this hunt as a surprising team-building option that doesn’t require them go to downtown for historical, hysterical fun.
Kids can get in on the action, too!
An easier, age-appropriate version of this hunt is also available for ages 7 and up. Kids and adults collaborate on clever questions as they’re immersed in the city’s Revolutionary and literary history. It’s a fantastic choice for school field trips, camp and youth-group outings, birthday parties, and any event where you want to get kids interacting, learning, and having fun.
