Something In Your I’s

Heartford

An all-night drive-around puzzle hunt, like love, can magically have you not seeing things too clear.

Hey there, you with old flicks in your queue!
[Begin black background]Look up the film Midnight Madness, which[End black background]
[Begin black background]Had that "Itari" clue![End black background]
Hey, there! Three bright-hued teams solved it right,
Then misconstrued the answer so
[Begin red background]One drove five miles to dance (or so)[End red background],
[Begin yellow background]One mapped celeb spots[End yellow background], [Begin green background]one went where figures just lurk[End green background].
Then (in a scene that's not on film)
All showed up where we work!
(We were too swamped to say if they were in the right club,
[Begin black background]And their game's later clues, in fact,[End black background]
Could be found if they hit our packed,
Busy [Begin green background]figure collection[End green background]/[Begin yellow background]actor hangout[End yellow background]/[Begin red background]nightclub[End red background]!)
Attention all employees:
[Begin black background]Please pay attention to your first priorities, and deal with these task lists in proper order, gamely, throughout the night. (Then you'll be two steps from done — bonne aventure!)[End black background]
Sincerely,
The management
