MN Zero Puzzle Quest 10

When: Sunday, March 25th. Team check-in at 11:30, game start at Noon.

Where: 4544 4th Avenue South Minneapolis, Watershed School

(Specific location to be announced later! Duration is expected to be
several hours - when we're more sure of the duration, we'll let on.)

Ready your teams of approximately 4 for another puzzle hunt!

MN0PQ is a puzzle-solving race through unexpected environs. The
solution to each unique puzzle will point to the next puzzle's
location. The first team to make it to the end (and take the fewest
hints) wins, but everyone will have fun. Teams should have three to
four players and may want to bring pencils, paper, clipboards,
scissors, tape, hats, and BRAINS. The puzzle hunt can be completed on
foot, and any lengthy puzzles will have warm, sheltered space in which
to complete them.

MN0PQ puzzles feature a mixture of logic, lateral thinking,
exploration, and experimentation. The puzzles are challenging and
designed for groups of 4. But fear not: There is a hint system
available, so if a puzzle is particularly annoying, you can skip it
(at the cost of points).

Registration is hereby open!

Send an email to mnzeropq@gmail.com to register your team. We need a
team name and an email address for full teams. Also let us know if you
have a complete team of four, if you are a single player looking for a
team, or if you are a team looking to adopt a player.

Also:
If you want to volunteer to help in any way, let us know! We will
definitely need help on game day, as well as for preparation. Also,
playtesting is always helpful!

Samhain Says

When: Last 3 weeks in October

Where: That's kinda the point...

Sam takes pictures of the future. Pictures with his mind. Right now, his mind is picturing murder!

Each week, he'll predict a new death and post a series of psychic photographs on his Facebook page. If you can locate the crime scene and cleanse it, by leaving behind a mystical symbol, you can prevent the murder and save a life. When nobody dies, everybody wins.

Samhain Says is a cooperative, anytime game that takes players off the beaten path.

The killing starts Monday, October 10th.

Journey to the End of the Night: St. Paul

Save the Date!: Saturday, September 17th, 2011
Starting Time: 7:00 p.m.

 

The people demand more play! And MNZERO abides. Join us Saturday, September 17th for Journey to the End of the Night: St. Paul. Tell your friends, save the date, and get ready for a city-sized game of chasing and checkpoints.

 

The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by the slow strobe of fluorescent buses and dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger's signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.

For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities, and all your usual motives for movement and action, and let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.


I'm confused. What's with all the heavy breathing?:
http://totheendofthenight.com/ should clear things up.

 

Whoa. This is cool. Can I help?:
You so totally can. Check out our call for volunteers and tell us how you can help us make another great JTTEOTN.
