Wacky Walks is a unique walking game. It is similar to a board game in which the power, or control shifts from one player to another, and instead of a board, you’ll be navigating the streets of your city with your smartphone to complete the game.
The objective of the game is to have fun, learn some facts about your city, be a little wacky, and enjoy the company of whoever you are playing with. With that being said, Wacky Walks will start out by designating who will be the first King or Queen (kind of like a Team Captain), but don’t worry, that could soon change. You’ll then go out on checkpoints throughout the city.
At each checkpoint, the players will need to answer a question about the checkpoint and the players, or “pawns” as we call them will perform a task for the King or Queen.
Wacky Walks is done completely on foot and usually takes about two hours to complete. But don’t worry, you won’t be alone. You’ll have a remote/virtual guide that will be available in case you get stuck.
Starting Your Walk
On the day and time you want to play, you'll go to the Starting Location of the city you're playing in. Then, you'll follow the instructions in your registration confirmation email. Remember, you are not alone. Your guide will be monitoring your progress every step of the way!
Playing Wacky Walks
You'll start out by locating a Home Base. You'll then determine a King or Queen (like a Team Captain). But don't worry, other players will have a chance to be the King or Queen as well. You'll then go on an adventure through the city to different checkpoints. At each one, you'll answer a question about the checkpoint, and the "pawns", or anybody that is not the King or Queen will perform a task. After all the checkpoints, you'll come back to your Home Base. Once you've answered the final question at the Home Base, you can check out your photos by going to our Facebook page.
