They Tell Me You Are Corrupt

This game is inspired by Chicago’s reputation for rampant political corruption. Teams of 3-5 are given a map indicating ten bribe money drops. At each drop, a bag is waiting, and inside the bag are clues about which alderman is being bribed.

Found inside a grocery bag: a dirtied-up recipe, a pack of matches, a decoder wheel, and lots of groceries.

Puzzles range from a cigar box full of LEGOs to a grocery bag stuffed with groceries, from a mysterious game of Scrabble to an iPod playing a series of unusually remixed songs.

A team puzzles out what to do with all these LEGOs.

At the end, teams gather together to collect and analyze the information they’ve gathered, and to get one final puzzle. But this one might require working together in ways they don’t expect.

Teams get a bag of what appears to be money, but they’re not told what to do with it.

This hunt is all about:

Just a regular ol’ game of Scrabble, certainly not embedded with a hidden message.
