In San Francisco on Saturday: A LOVEly Little ARG

on Friday, Feb. 8th

If you’re familiar with Alternate Reality Games you know they can be incredibly involved affairs. Days and weeks of uncovering clues and discovering strange twists and turns. It can be exhausting. Yet that initial burst of discovery can be hard to top as an expeirence… it’s something hard to describe if you haven’t been initiated into that world.

While reading a blog post about musician/transmedia artist Olga Nunes at my friend Sara Thacher’s blog I learned that Nunes is going to put on a one-day ARG-style scavenger hunt in San Francisco. This Saturday. Yet again a reason why I wish there was transporter technology and/or bullet train service between LA and The Bay.

Details from Nunes’ own announcement after the jump:

The Love Letter Scavenger Hunt is a one-day, whimsy-fueled careen through the Mission, where intrepid adventurers will be given clues to find mysterious lost love letters hidden in parks, alleys, and shops.

Come with your sleuthing hat on, ready to solve puzzles, meet weird characters, and unravel a mystery.

DATE: Saturday, February 9th

TIME: Show up ANY TIME Between 12p and 7pm

ADDRESS: 21st & Valencia, San Francisco

Sara’s blog post is also a wonderful trailhead into Nunes’ creative world and methodology.
