This past Monday I received a box in the mail that contained several items: a poster, three postcards, and a ball of yarn. It could only mean one thing: a new ARG! I took out my camera and snapped a series of photos. I uploaded them later that morning to Flickr and started searching tags for other photos like mine. I quickly found some and examined their tags, which led me to other searches, which led me to the URL that begins the game. Later I found out that if I dug inside the ball of yarn that I would have found a little fortune with the URL. Leave it to me to make things more complicated than they actually are.
As I play I’ll be tagging items on my del.icio.us page if anyone wants to play too. I’ll be talking about it at a panel presentation at the Conference on College Composition and Communication in New Orleans next month as well.
