Every good story is built upon a captivating beginning, middle and end and it’s up to you to decide how yours will play out. You and your team will create an original storybook by living it one challenge at a time. Every story is filled with adventures - whether you choose to slay a dragon or kidnap the prince, the choice is yours.

Playing the heroes of this real-world adventure across Brooklyn, your interactions with other teams of characters will determine whether you live as allies or enemies. All stories culminate in a festive gathering where the characters assemble together to write the final chapter over a feast of food and cider.
