Philly

Here's the clue for Philly:

"Philadelphia: To find what you're looking for, think outside the Square box on Friday 11/18."

Hmm... Square box... no idea...

For Seattle "...look for a place that offers diverse comics." It's most likely one of the two Zanadu Comics locations.

For Chicago: On Friday look west of Lake Shore: find the cemetery and you're close.
There's complaints that ALL of Chicago is west of the lake shore.
Apparently some people don't pay attention. Think I know the area that they are talking about. Even two "land marks" there. [I looked on Google maps.]

But since there is talk about certain times, I'm probably out of game. I can't get into Chicago at certain times. Suburbia... Rolling Eyes

I wonder for the second chances do we tweet our answers?

There are new clues coming out. To help you out with your Chicago one, here is your clue...

Tomorrow, the prize will be where the headstones end, follow Clark towards the nuts.

Anybody in Dallas, San Antonio, or Austin and want some help finding it? I have a pretty good idea where to look in each of those places. I am out in the boonies so I have no chance, but I would be just as happy helping someone else find it.

Edit: Just thought of something. Can you imagine how crazy the drop location will be in Weirton when it happens? It is a small town so fewer hiding places and you know they are all paying attention to this hunt, so I hope nobody gets run over trying to get to the prize.

EditEdit: Times have now been posted as well.

Philly

The clues for Philly are really vague. So much so that I'm wondering if it's even worth my time to drive into the city, fighting rush hour traffic at 8 AM, just to pretend I know where to look. So hopefully there are Philly folks checking this that I can bounce ideas off of.

The first clue suggested "To find what you're looking for, think outside the Square box on Friday 11/18." and the second was "If you're near a wide street and an evergreen shrub you'll find the prize."

Dissection: There are five original "squares" in Philly: Centre Square (now called city hall), Rittenhouse square, franklin square, washington square, and logan square. While my original thought was Rittenhouse Square, I an now doubting myself. I have another one in mind, where there is a large cluster of bushes on the outside edge that I know about, and has wide streets, so that might be a logical first location to try. But with 1 exception, all of the squares have some form of evergreen shrubbery on the outside, as they are the preferred potted plants for many of the condos and hotels.

Of course, if they mean something like outside the RED Box, then I'm way off base.

OK, I was actually off on the first clues.
Google Maps shows a memorial as a cemetery. So I went with another cemetery nearby.
It actually has headstones. And I'm certain I found the prize location. With these clues and past experience with this ARG.
I don't want to give away the answer but it does bring up a good question.

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
Can I still "Taste the Outer Space"?

Anyone in Seattle?

"...look for a place that offers diverse comics."
"...you'll be close to the prize when you can kiss a blarney stone on 3rd."

Check out Zanadu Comics at 1923 3rd Ave. & The Blarney Stone Pub at 1909 3rd Ave.

I will not be able to make it, but happy hunting!

Checked my schedule and my wallet. I won't be able to join the scavenger hunt.
Please keep us posted if ya find the prize in Chicago.
I would like to know if I was even close.

I hope that there will be another chance, and that I can be a bit more lazy about it. lol

Good luck hunters!
