Bang 16: The Amazing BANG
Date and Time
August 12, 2006
- Registration/Pregame start: 4:30pm (we'll be there at 4pm if you want to register early)
- Game start time: 5pm
- Duration: 5-6 hours
- Game finish cutoff: 11pm
Los Gatos and another nearby city
Start location: Los Gatos Town Plaza (at the corner of Main and Santa Cruz in Los Gatos)
The easiest nearby parking is at the Los Gatos underground parking lot. You can enter the parking lot on either Grays Ln or Elm St between University Ave and Santa Cruz Ave.
In the spirit of The Amazing Race, The Amazing BANG will take place over 2 different cities. The race itself will be played entirely on foot, but at the midpoint of the race, there will be a one hour "pit stop" in which each team will be required to travel by car to a nearby city, where dinner will be provided and teams can mingle before starting the second leg of the race in the second city.
We highly recommend teams of 3 or 4, but will accept other team sizes if you feel strongly about it.
Teams should bring at least the following:
- scientific calculator
- $20 entrance fee
- $10-$15 prize
If you have any questions, or you can't make it to the event on August 12 but are interested in playtesting, please email bang16 at gmail dot com
Also of note, The Platonic Solids were the highest finishing team with no members who had previously run a BANG (8th place), and have agreed to run the next one!
