Learn, Support & Have Fun: Women's History Museum Treasure Hunt in Two Parts
Enter the United State of Women - Part II: The Queen's Gambit. Learn more about women's key, but too often underappreciated and little known, roles in U.S. history. Enter the Treasure Hunt to support the museum while having fun & networking
- The 2019 Women's History Treasure Hunt consists of two parts.
- Part 1 is called the "United State of Women." It is completely free and played online at www.gamegenius.org/hunt. The game's story begins by highlighting influential women from all 50 states. Completing this piece earns clues for Part 2.
- Part 2 takes place in DC. There are both free and ticketed versions.
- The free version extends from the clues earned in Part 1, and this whole experience will be open between August 1 and October 31. Players must solve the final puzzles to finish the game. Those who do so will find secret codes for a separate Game Genius challenge called #52Pickup. You can learn more at www.gamegenius.org/52pickup.
- The ticketed version is the final chapter of this year's story. It is called "The Queen's Gambit", and you purchase entry into this game HERE.
- All proceeds benefit the National Women's History Museum and the $15 ticket prices are tax-deductible.
- To sign up, you may choose either race day (September 14 or October 12) and team up with as many players as desired. Here's a link where you can learn more: CLICK HERE.
- On your race day, you can start the adventure any time between 9:00am - 3:00pm at Shop Made in DC, 1130 - 19th St., NW (near Dupont Circle).
- These women's history-themed puzzles will take several hours to complete, and the game concludes when you find the Queen of Diamonds locked in a hidden treasure chest. Players/teams will be timed - top finishers will win prizes from event hosts, sponsors, and partners.
- All ticketed participants will also receive discounts on event swag.
- However you choose to play, we hope you enjoy the 2019 hunt. Our main goal is to educate players in a fun, accessible way. If you have any questions or would like to support the hunt in other ways, please send an email to GameGeniusLLC@gmail.com.
