San Diego: The Game - Gaslamp Quarter Interactive Walking Tour

San Diego: The Game offers two meticulously researched tours designed to delight San Diego locals and tourists alike with intriguing facts and amusing activities

A new way to explore San Diego is coming to town today with the launch of Stray Boots’ new San Diego: The Game series of tours. A refreshing alternative to traditional tours that rush you through the highlights with dull commentary, San Diego: The Game uses mobile technology to immerse players in enjoyable and 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.

San Diego: The Game is easy to play and works by text message, so customers can play using virtually any US mobile phone. Players are guided with text messages 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 San Diego: The Game is a completely self-guided experience, players can start whenever they want and set their own pace as they go. Each tour takes about two to three hours to complete.
