A new way to explore Seattle is coming to town with the launch of Seattle: The Game from Stray Boots. A refreshing alternative to traditional tours that rush you through the highlights with boring commentary, Seattle: The Game uses mobile technology to immerse users in informative and enjoyable self-guided, interactive tours. It combines the fun of a scavenger hunt with the sights and history of a top-notch tour.
Seattle: The Game is easy to use and works with the text messaging capability of virtually every US mobile phone. Users are guided with text messages that include riddles, puzzles, photo opps and trivia questions as they tour the points of interest along the route. Each response earns the user points, making it possible to compete between groups of friends, family members, or pre-assigned teams. And since Seattle: The Game is a completely self-guided experience, users can start when they want and set their own pace as they go. Each tour takes about two to three hours to complete.

Seattle: The Game offers three meticulously-researched tours designed to delight Seattle “locals” and tourists alike with intriguing facts and amusing activities. For Seattleites looking for something different to do, it makes a great date, family outing, or just a day out on the town with friends. Seattle: The Game tours cover the major tourist sights and attractions, but also include cool "insider" off-the-beaten-path gems:
- The Pike Place Market tour guides users though the fresh food market and treats them to adorable shops with eccentric owners, a visit to the original Starbucks and many other interesting stops along the way.
- The Pioneer Square tour combines the history and stunning architecture of the city with visits to some modern-day Seattle curiosities.
- The Seattle Art Museum Tour offers an adventure that’s impressive, inspiring and fun in one of the country’s top spots for art. A separate admission to the museum is required.
Seattle: The Game is being offered at a special introductory price of US$12 per ticket. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.strayboots.com/locations/seattle/
Stray Boots is also offering a special free ticket promotion to the first 100 people who take the tour. Free tickets can be acquired for a limited time by visiting http://seattlethegamegiveaway.eventbrite.com/
“I started Stray Boots because I love exploring new places but I found most tours just fed me dull facts and led me around on their schedule,” said Avi Millman, CEO and founder of Stray Boots. “Seattle: The Game engages both tourists and locals in an interactive experience that takes them to the top sights while challenging them to have some fun and learn about the city at the same time.”
