Brett is Getting Ready, and the Game is Here!

12 May

Brett Kelley is readying himself for his amazing journey by foot from Fredericksburg, VA to Harrisburg, PA. He’ll start off at the Sergeant Kirkland Monument at Fredericksburg and end at the “Moment of Mercy” statue at the National Civil War Museum on May 30th. He’s already made the TV news.

Meanwhile, the alternate reality game “The Jewel of the Valleys” has kicked off with the discovery of this bizarre document in the archives of the Museum.

If you’re a teacher, we’d love you to join The Jewel of the Valleys wiki page, where students and teachers can collaborate on the exciting mystery by sharing information, solving puzzles, analyzing documents, and perhaps bragging a bit?

This poster (above)  also would work well for driving student and public interest in the game (with a QR Code for smartphone/tablet users).

Of course, anyone can play, and the clues will start rolling in on May 15th, the eve of Brett’s departure. You’ll also find this and this quite useful in the game!

Stay tuned, and have fun, and as the mysterious document says..

    Two questions: are you blogging your adventure? And, are you camping along the way?

      Actually, students from Hershey High School in Pennsylvania are running this blog. We post information that comes from Brett’s location. Thanks for the comment, and the interest!
