Dear friends,For the past while, I've been working on a project with Northern Lights.mn called Ruination: City of Dust, a landscape-based mystery game played on bicycles, which will take place next weekend, October 18 and 19 at Lake Nokomis and along Minnehaha Creek.
The game takes place in 2314 (yes, I've been working on this for 300 years. It's really good.), after Minneapolis has fallen into ruin, and players are explorers searching through archaeological digs to solve the mystery of which of 6 Deadly Problems caused the final ruination.
There will be: Mystery and intrigue! Maps! Canoes! Edibles! Secret things! Bikes! Dungballs?
I'm really excited about this project. It's going to be great fun, and I'm quite sad that I won't get a chance to play the game myself.
So, you will have to play in my stead.
You sign up to play the game in teams of 1-6 people and it will take about 2-3 hours to play, with an estimated biking distance of about 5 miles. You can register at ruination.mn.
Come play! I could use your help spreading the word, too:
I hope we'll run into each other in the ruined city on October 18 or 19, 2314.
- Share the Ruination website (ruination.mn) and encourage people to register to play!
- Share our Facebook event with your friends.
- Spread the word about our volunteer opportunities. We need volunteers to make this game happen, and we have many volunteer roles and shifts available: http://northern.lights.mn/projects/ruination-city-of-dust/#get-involved. Anyone who volunteers gets their registration fee waived to play the game outside of their volunteer shift.
