Puzzle Path is an out-door adventure game similar to an escape room or scavenger hunt where players follow clues in a story to locations to unlock a puzzle. I started conceptualizing it in the spring of 2020 with some ideas that had been floating around in my head from gaming through out my life, hitting escape rooms like Enter the Imaginarium or Strata from Bricolage, plus having wanted to set up a scavenger hunt for a number of years (shout out Spak Bros Scavenger hunt!). Between Covid and generally enjoying biking the local trails, I thought something outside would be a good format for these times.
The first edition of the game involved trying to find clues left by your scientist burnout brother in order to find his possible cure for the Corona virus. I had five teams play and enjoyment was had by all. Looking to do more games with a new setup and location as well as evolve the gameplay in the fall and going forward!
