Full description

Follow the clues on a self-guided walking tour of Richmond. Combine a scavenger hunt app and local trivia through the Downtown and Capitol Square neighborhoods. Play a cat-and-mouse game of question-and-answer and learn the stories of local landmarks and secret spots.

Start the game near Capitol Square to receive the first question or task. Head towards the site where the answer awaits. Look around and find the solution nearby. When you’ve answered correctly or finished the challenge, receive the next clue. 

Continue to work through the game until everything is completed or until you decide to stop. If you end up stuck on a question, the game provides clues to help.
