We Played Hide And Seek Across Switzerland – Ep 2

Welcome to episode two of our four-day game of hide-and-seek across Switzerland. In this unique game, the Seekers must uncover the Hider’s location by buying information from them. The Hider, in turn, receives coins for providing truthful answers and can use them to buy curses that slow down the Seekers. The player with the longest single hiding run over the course of four days wins the game.

The Quest to Beat the Clock

In the previous episode, Adam was discovered in a castle in the mountain town of Hospental after hiding for just over four and a half hours. Now, it’s Ben’s turn to see if he can beat that time. With two and a half hours to find a hiding spot before his clock starts ticking and the Seekers begin their pursuit, Ben sets off on his adventure.

The Strategic Options

As Ben contemplates his options, he considers the cardinal directions: east, west, north, and south. Each direction presents its own set of challenges and possibilities. Going west or south may lead to complications, but going north towards Lucerne offers the most flexibility and choices.

An Ingenious Question

The Seekers, Adam and Sam, devise a clever plan to narrow down Ben’s potential hiding spots. They ask him to send them five words, one of which must rhyme with the name of his town. By doing so, they hope to eliminate some options and gain valuable insight into his location. Ben responds with the word “rug,” which rhymes with Zug, a town they already know. However, they suspect this may be a red herring and continue their quest.

Navigating the Challenges

Ben faces several challenges during his journey. Limited time and transportation options force him to make strategic decisions. He must also navigate the treacherous terrain and find a suitable hiding spot within his radius. Despite the difficulties, Ben remains determined to outwit his pursuers.

A Sinister Idea and a Political Question

During a break, Adam and Sam come up with a sinister question to further test Ben’s knowledge of the area. They ask him to send them information about his town’s political party. This question serves a dual purpose: it provides valuable geographic information and narrows down Ben’s potential hiding spots. Ben responds, revealing that his canton voted for a different party than theirs, ruling out the western region.

Revising the Strategy

Armed with this new information, Adam and Sam reassess their assumptions. They realize they may have been too focused on the Zug area and start considering other possibilities. They explore train stations and request photos to compare with their mental map of the region. However, their search leads them to towns that do not match the photos, leaving them uncertain about Ben’s true location.

A New Line of Inquiry

As the Seekers continue their search, they decide to ask Ben for a photo of the streets he has walked, tracing at least six turns. This request aims to narrow down the possibilities further, as certain towns have distinctly shaped streets. Ben obliges, providing them with a clear picture of the streets he traversed.

The Final Stretch

With the new information in hand, Adam and Sam head south, believing they are getting closer to Ben’s hiding spot. However, they start to question their assumptions as they consider alternative locations outside of the Zug area. Steinen emerges as a potential candidate, but the lack of a town hall raises doubts about its viability.

A Race Against Time

As the clock ticks, Ben realizes that Adam and Sam are closing in on his location. He hastily finds another hiding spot after being informed that his initial choice was on private property. The tension rises as the Seekers approach, determined to catch Ben before time runs out.

The Unpredictability of the Game

The game of hide-and-seek across Switzerland proves to be an exhilarating and unpredictable challenge. Players must navigate the constraints of time, limited options, and strategic decisions to outsmart their opponents. With each episode, the stakes get higher, and the tension mounts as the Seekers close in on the Hider.

A Thrilling Conclusion

Will Ben manage to evade capture and secure his place in the lead? Or will Adam and Sam outsmart him and claim victory? The next episode promises an exciting conclusion to this thrilling game of hide-and-seek across Switzerland. Stay tuned to witness the final showdown and find out who will emerge as the ultimate champion.
