The Dragon of Bostonshire
Have you ever wanted to be the savior of a small, medieval town? Boxaroo presents our 3rd Annual City Scavenger Adventure - The Dragon of Bostonshire!
Explore the city while collecting clues and completing challenges in order to defeat a vicious dragon named Hubert!
It is taking place on August 19th, starts at 1pm, runs about 4 hours total, and takes place outdoors in Boston, MA. Teams are 4-6 people; more details and booking can be found at the event website.
Aug 25 1:00p-4:30p
Legend of the Barbary Coast
San Francisco, CA
Legend has it that a group of gold miners hit it big in San Francisco in 1850. Afraid of the lawlessness of the land at the time, they hid their treasure somewhere in the city and swore a blood oath to keep its location hidden.
A new excavation of the buried ship, Brilliant, has unearthed some clues that might lead to their hidden treasure.
Can your team decode the secret clues, travel through the dark history of the Barbary Coast, find hidden spots, and find the treasure?
Our unique puzzle-solving urban adventure will have teams of 2-6 players racing throughout North Beach, completing challenges, and searching for the treasure.

The Mastermind Hunt
San Jose, CA
Giant monsters (Kaiju) are closing in on San Jose! Where do they come from? What do they want? We don't know, but it probably involves reducing the city to rubble! Determining how to stop them will be a bit of a puzzle, but you and your team may be the only ones who can save us. Mark your calendars for the morning of Saturday, September 8, 2018 and stand by for more details.
Puzzle Boat 5
Pandamonium Alpha is a medium-scale puzzle event featuring 30+ puzzles and multiple metas. Expect it to be smaller than a Puzzle Boat and larger than an issue of P&A.
