About this Event
Feeling cooped up with Covid? We’ve got just the cure for your boredom!
Keene YPN, in collaboration with Monadnock United Way, Greater Keene Rotaract Club, and the Historical Society of Cheshire County, present the triumphant return of Keene’s greatest historical riddle-based scavenger hunt of all time.
Teams of 1-6 people compete to answer trivia and riddle clues by locating landmarks (modern or historical) around a ½ mile radius from Main Street Keene. Teams must either photograph themselves with the landmarks, find information about the landmark, or if the landmark is a business, acquire a collectible from the landmark. Scoring is based on how many clues were correctly answered, the total time to return to the starting location, and other penalties and bonuses.
We will be carefully curating this event to make it Covid-safe, including keeping teams spaced at the beginning and end, keeping team size limited to 6, and ensuring mask-wearing when inside businesses.
