DASH4 - Puzzle Scavenger Hunt in DC

Okay so this an event I've been wanting to do for a while now.  It's an event that happening in multiple cities.  I guess you'll see how well teams did across the country. It's very challenging, the event lasts 7 hours.  I'd like to hold a separate puzzle hunt in the future, I still need to work on the details. 

I highly encourage you guys to join up and form teams.  I'm planning on forming teams with my Prince William County board game meetup.  So if you're interested, leave a comment, RSVP, send me an email and we'll see if we can't get some teams formed.  If there's interest, we could event combine interested parties from both meetups to form teams.  Here's the team registration link http://www.playdash.org/DASH4/register.php

The event uses puzzles to help you figure out the next location, most of the time.  Here are some examples.

As you can see the puzzles tend to challenge your mind and can be pretty hard.  If any of you were there for my NYE event, I tried to introduce some mental puzzles there.

I suggest teams of 4 people.  That'll be $10 a person.  I'll set up a team.  I'll see if any of you want to set up a team and we'll post that information as comments.

Some other information from the website

Duration

We expect the event to last from noon to 7 PM.

Cost

The cost will be $40 per team.  Payment details will be provided to registered teams.

Team size

We'd like each team to consist of 2-5 people.  The optimal size is 3-4.  We've found that with groups of 6 or more, it's difficult for everyone to see the puzzle and be involved in solving.  If you have 6 or more people, we strongly suggest you consider splitting into multiple teams.

Some background on this event is that it started in the LA area, but the one I'm more familiar with is BANG - the Bay Area Night Game.  Here's a wiki to other of these types of games http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Game_%28treasure_hunt%29
