How the Dresden Scavenger Hunt works
In the box you will find 2 postcards. One of them will explain you in detail how to play the Dresden Scavenger Hunt and the other one describes you the exact way to the starting point of the historic city center trail.
Every envelope contains both an “information card” with all the interesting facts you need to know about the sights at each single station as well as a “challenge card” that on one hand guides you the way and on the other hand gives you a tiny riddle to solve. The solution of the riddle tells you the number of the envelope you should open next.
On every card the according playing card symbol is printed in the upper left corner. All “information cards” are marked with a small “i” and all “challenge cards” with a small “game token”. The symbols will help you to distinguish easily between “challenge and information cards” and also are needed in order to play the Pairs game.
