This is a game in which players stroll around a play area encompassing a few square blocks, encountering little posters reminiscent of lost dog notices or offers of computer help. The poster pages in the game each have a strange being or interesting situation the player encounters in a world of fantasy make-believe. The players, either those you invite or people just walking by, can collect items, answer questions for themselves, and perhaps succeed in the game’s quest.
Kid friendly! Non-competitive! Not a puzzle!
It’s a Stroll Your Own Adventure!
For 1 to 30 players, invited or serendipitous. With poster stacking: hundreds of players.
Play takes about an hour, depending on how far apart the facilitator/installer pins the posters.
“I found Baba Zubi’s missing pet, and Baba Zubi introduced me to a new friend and landed me my dream job. You might think that making deals with witches is ill-advised, but you’d be wrong!”
-Jory Bowers, woodland wanderer
“This was a wonderful low-key date! We held hands, we had an adventure, we met magical creatures, and we had lovely conversational prompts every time we met a new inhabitant of the magical forest! It was a charming and delightful, easily scalable up or down afternoon.”
-Zia Dawn, dancer and adventurer
“Searching for Baba Zubi’s Missing Pet was such fun! A great combo of detective work and scavenger hunt. Easy to spot fellow players in the neighborhood: swordplay, invisible beasts and oh, those witches! Played it with my son, and we LOVED it!”
-Terri Cohlene, explorer and children’s author
