Going Smart...

 If there was something I had been trying to avoid not getting our games into is using  “smart technology” in our games.   As of this past season we have had several individuals call us and ask us if we offer that type of game, which we didn't at the time.   After researching it a little bit and knowing that a few games companies within the country does use “smart technology” we went ahead and created a test game this past fall. The game worked out pretty smoothly and I was pretty happy with the results, but quite frankly just using smart phone technology I think  limits the game and quite frankly that's not what  our games are known for. So we tweaked it, and tweeted again and we have created a game for 2012 which will be tentatively called “The Smart Sprint” it will be the only game  we offer that will use smart phone technology. The game will also include additional challenges that are typical to a Cashunt competition, honestly we wouldn't have it any other way and I believe our players would agree.  We are looking to offer "The Smart Sprint" in the Summer of 2012.  We will also be offering a couple of promotions prior to that time to get people interested in using this technology and playing for free by having contests that will be open to the public.  All you would need is an Iphone or Android phone and we will let you know what Free App you will need to download to play and you are all set!  The promotions will start in the Spring of 2012 and will be posted unexpectedly on our Facebook fan page, these contests will have prizes in the form of tickets to sporting events , restaurant gift certificates, local Boston tours and more.  More details will come next year when we come closer to the reveal...

Hunting across the pond

   From our last post we had indicated that we have now a department on our website that now offers “do-it-yourself” versions of some of our top games. The games  have had a great start  and the response has been great. We will also be introducing international versions of our games with the first one being "The London Dashunt". This game will be available most likely in the month of December and will be the first of four games that will be designed for an international market. The reason for this is because we have been seeing a big draw in international interest.    We will be announcing each new location the moment they are available to the public,    but as of right now we only see four for 2012. We will keep you posted on this blog and of course on our social media fan sites that being Facebook, LinkedIn, and twitter. That's it for now have a good week!
