An Urban Adventure Game

The Chinese New Year Treasure Hunt is a unique team adventure game, an exercise in urban sleuthing played on the colorful streets of Chinatown, North Beach, and Telegraph Hill amid the excitement, noise and spectacle of the annual Chinese New Year Parade. Explore obscure alleys and hidden lanes, solving clues created by local private eye Jayson Wechter. Along the way discover secret San Francisco, the hidden history, culture and artwork that most tourists (and many residents) are unaware of.

Pounding pavement once trod by pirates, miners and beatnik poets, hunters seek out secret vestiges of San Francisco's past.

The hunt takes place rain or shine, and is conducted entirely on foot. Prizes are awarded to the winning teams in each of four divisions (Beginner’s, two Intermediate, and Master’s) and to the teams with the most inventive names and costumes. Partial proceeds benefit SF Circus Center and Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center.

Bring your own team or join one there.
