What the hell is DASH?
DASH (Different Area—Same Hunt) is a one-day, outdoor, walking puzzle hunt which takes place in several cities across the country on the same day.
What the hell is a puzzle hunt?
A puzzle hunt (or “treasure hunt”) is a fun, interactive event in which teams of players race to find and solve creative puzzles in different locations. You may have heard of “The Game.” By comparison, DASH is a shorter event, takes place entirely on foot, and features shorter puzzles.
No, I haven’t heard of “The Game,” should I have?
Anyway, the next DASH takes place on April 24th, and Portland is one of 10 cities participating. Registration has begun ($30/team – sign up before the 20th!). (If you’re interested, but not sure about forking out $30, there’s also a free play test on April 10th – email PDX@playDASH.org for info!)
For more clues as to what this whole thing is about, a recap of the September 2009 event is available, and all the cities’ puzzles – with solutions. There are also more FAQs on the DASH website.
All of this is run by local puzzle masters CKL+D
