The Adventure Design Group brings you Thomas Lotze, the current lead organizer of Journey to the End of the Night San Francisco. Journey is arguably the most influential street game ever made.

Journey has spread across the world to New York, London, Los Angeles, Berlin, Chicago, Washington DC, Vienna, and other cities -- wherever there is a street games community, you will likely find Journey.

Jericho is an Urban Game that is a battle of wits, because everyone is a spy! Think of it as a game of capture the flag played in public. We meet every month to play rain or shine, day or night. All that is needed to play is a Nerf pistol, a bandana, a healthy imagination, and an uncanny ability to hide in plain sight. All games are usually played in downtown SF. No advance preparation needed. Just show up at the meeting spot with your gun & bandana. Cellphones are not required, but suggested.
Puzzled Pint is a social puzzle solving event which happens on the second Tuesday of every month. The Friday before each event, we post a location puzzle to this web site.

On the night of the event, show up at the pub any time between 7PM and 10PM, and we'll have more puzzles for you to solve while you enjoy drinks and food.

Undercover Assassins is a fun, stealthy team game set in a crowded public place. You'll get a polaroid of your target at the beginning of the game, and have a polaroid taken of yourself.
