Albany I Spy 2017, game on

AlbanyISpy 2017 sample clue

The Albany I Spy history/architecture scavenger hunt from Albany Archives returns this Saturday, August 12. And the first five clues are now posted.

The image above is clipped from the advance clue sheet to give you an example. Also keep an eye out on the #AlbanyISpy hashtag for bonus clues.

This year's hunt is a little bit different from past years. Blurbage:

We're switching things up a bit this year though. The first five picture clues will be available to hunt early on August 7th and those last seven, you'll have to arrive at The City Beer Hall at noon, Saturday August 12 to find out what they are and you will be timed! That's right, Albany I Spy is now a timed event! Whichever team finishes the quickest will be crowned (figuratively only of course) the new kings and queens of Albany scavenger hunts.

That first link above includes all the details. The game is free to play, but your team does have to sign up ahead of time.

And there will be prizes from local businesses, of course. The first three teams to finish get to pick from the prize packages.

AOA is a media sponsor of Albany I Spy.

Do something at a state park maybe? We had our anniversary at Thacher Park. There are a lot of logistics when you do it that way, but it's a beautiful view, there is a pavilion so you don't need a tent, and they have bathrooms so you don't need to rent potties.
