Free ticket giveaway for “New Orleans: The Game” to first 100 customers who sign up for French Quarter or Garden District tours

Starting October 20, New Orleanians will have a new way to explore the city with Stray Boots’ New Orleans: The Game series of tours. Stray Boots is offering a special free ticket promotion to the first 100 people who sign up before October 20. Free tickets can be acquired for a limited time by visiting http://www.strayboots.com/new-orleans.

New Orleans: The Game is a refreshing alternative to traditional tours that rush you through the highlights with boring commentary. It uses mobile technology to immerse players in enjoyable & informative self-guided, interactive tours. The tours combine the fun of a scavenger hunt with the sights, history and insider knowledge of a top-notch tour.

New Orleans: The Game is easy to play and works by text message, so players can use virtually any US mobile phone. Players are guided by text message challenges that include riddles, puzzles, photo opportunities and trivia questions as they tour the points of interest along the route. Each response earns the urban explorer points, making it possible to compete between groups of friends, family members, or pre-assigned teams. And since New Orleans: The Game is a completely self-guided experience, players can start when they want and set their own pace as they go. Each tour takes about two to three hours to complete.

New Orleans: The Game offers two meticulously researched tours designed to delight locals and tourists alike with intriguing facts and amusing activities. For locals looking for something different to do, it makes a great date, family outing, or just a day out on the town with friends. New Orleans: The Game tours cover the major sights and attractions, but also include cool "insider" and off-the-beaten-path gems:

  •     The French Quarter tour takes players on a unique tour of the freewheeling French Quarter with stops along boisterous Bourbon Street, visits to haunted hotels, St. Louis Cathedral and the legendary Café Du Monde.
  •     The Garden District tour treats players to antebellum splendor with a decidedly N’awlins twist. See historic houses, celebrity mansions, Commander’s Palace and Lafayette Cemetery #1 with a Confederate landmark or two thrown in along with riddles, trivia questions and photo opps.

Starting October 20, 2011 New Orleans: The Game will be offered at a special introductory price of US$12 per ticket. Until then, a limited number of free tickets can be acquired online at http://www.strayboots.com/new-orleans.
