Challenge yourself

One of the best ways to discover more about the skills and knowledge you develop whilst planning, making and playing an ARG is to have a go yourself!

The challenges below are inspired by the ARGs featured on this site and will give you an insight into the creative process.

Please post your responses in the comments sections by writing a short message or uploading your photos. If you have created videos or audio files in response to these please share them with us via email so we can upload them to the site for you.

Have fun!
