DASH 5 – Amazing Race-esque Puzzle Hunt

May 18, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

| $40

DASH is back and is coming to Chicago for a 3rd consecutive year!

On May 18th teams from 15 different cities will compete simultaneously racing around their respective cities on their way to the finish line (London, UK will also be playing, but a week later). Think the Amazing Race, with puzzles at the checkpoints on the route. Only your time at the checkpoints is counted, so you can feel free to grab a snack or take a short break while racing.

With the return of DASH, we hope to improve some things from previous years: – New location! We’ll be in Oak Park this year, with Green Line access and ample (cheap) parking. – Shorter track! We’ve confined our route to be a bit easier and more weather friendly. – Two difficulty levels! While we’re always ready to give hints, we’re providing “beginner” versions of most puzzles to help teams that want it (or are running behind)

Excited? We are! Sign up today at http://www.playdash.org/DASH5/register.php and feel free to check out our FAQ at http://www.playdash.org/DASH5/Chicago-IL, or just email me with questions.
