Six quests.

The Smithsonian American Art Museum is haunted.

Ghosts of a Chance, a new kind of scavenger hunt taking place at the Luce Foundation Center on October 25th, will ask players to use their wits, curiosity, and creativity to save the museum. As part of a series of quests, players will hunt for clues, test their luck, break codes, and confront spirits while exploring the museum. The game will start with easy quests designed for players of all ages and progress to more and more difficult challenges. The first 50 players who complete all of the quests will win an extremely special Ghosts of a Chance t-shirt.

The hunt begins at noon and ends at 5, but players can get started at any time. The game is free and open to all.
