The Great Bigfoot Search of 2020 Adventure Game

This past week, at our book launch party for the Legend of Bigfoot, we sent party-goers on the Great Bigfoot Search of 2020. Those who completed the adventure were entered into a grand prize (random) drawing. Since we had so much fun, I wanted to share a few of the completed stories online, but I also thought it might be fun to give everyone a chance to play. What do you say?

The Great Bigfoot Search of 2020

Story Set up:

The BFRO (Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization) has noticed an influx of credible Bigfoot Sightings throughout North America. The investigators have their hands full in a couple localized areas and they need your help to reach the more remote places. You’ve been sought out for your special skill. Will you join the team? In return, you will be paid in notoriety and possibly become the first person to gather undisputable proof that Bigfoot exists. If you accept this adventure, continue on to the first prompt and follow the directions.

In The Legend of Bigfoot, we focus on five major Bigfoot territories. To spread out in the Great Bigfoot Search, you will be assigned to one of the five territories. In addition, you are being assigned an assistant. Many of these experts were helpful as we wrote The Legend of Bigfoot. Follow the directions on the images to find out who your assistant will be (#1) and to where you will be traveling (#2). Record them on your paper. (If you would like to read more about your assistant, you can find that info. here).

Cryptid Search

You and your assistant traveled to your destination. On your first night, this happened…

The next morning the sun is shining and it’s a new day. You and your assistant eat a good breakfast that includes your favorite vegetable. Throughout the day, you find evidence of footprints, hair, and scat. You’re on the right trail, but then your assistant…

Bigfoot, vegetables

You lose time but aren’t deterred because you and your assistant find more evidence and know you’re on the right trail. That night, it’s a full moon. You set out nuts, fruit, and just in case, a strip of beef jerky. Then you position yourself behind a bush, and wait… and wait… Half the night passes. Just as you are about to nod off, the trees move. Then Bigfoot steps into the moonlight and eats the food. You get a good glimpse. Bigfoot looks…

Slowly, you lift your camera and snap a picture. Bigfoot…

Bonus Games

If you’re into jigsaw puzzles, we have a couple here.

Choices game:

My first reading experience about Bigfoot happened with Frank Peretti’s, Monster. This book offers a terrifying depiction of what happens when a young woman is abducted by Bigfoot in the pacific northwest. A story of fiction, Peretti portrays BF as larger than life…literally. Another abduction story, recorded as fact, is that of Albert Ostman in 1924. In The Legend of Bigfoot, we dive into the details of this story in Chapter Five: Facts or Fiction. What do you think would happen if you encountered Bigfoot? Follow the prompts on the diagram using your birthdate and let us know in the comments where the “choices” lead you.
