What to expect

Play a city game where you will follow clues and go beyond the cleaned-up myths to discover amazing places and local stories in Vancouver.

You will learn about the history of Gastown, the community from which all of Vancouver grew; both its present iconic landmarks and parts lost to time. You will see the Marine Building, the Sun Tower, the tiny Sam Kee building, and many more hidden places.

Are you up for an adventure in Vancouver?

Each clue will lead you from one place to another by providing you with exact directions so you won't need a map, GPS or guide. As you solve the problem and guess the answer, the secret story of that place is unlocked.

Storyline:

You call yourself a treasure hunter, though the less “sophisticated” call you a thief. A letter covered in antique stamps directs you to Vancouver to find the “Oppenheimer Stash,” a stockpile of Gold Rush spoils.
