It started with four people.
Three friends and a guest showed up to the first Jericho meetup in January 2010. It was a fun night of really basic spy missions and foam weaponry here in downtown SF. The next day, I scheduled one for the next month…and after that one, the next one, etc. A year later, Foxhound held it’s first laser tag Jericho game with a group of 10 adventure seekers (heavily filled out by agents from the meetup group.)
Since then we have run hundreds of games all over the bay area. Day & night, winter & summer, rain or shine. We’ve turned plenty of heads, had zero arrests, never passed out more than a band-aid, and added to the Nerf office armories for most of the major tech start-ups in SF.
And along the way, we’ve been privileged to meet some of the sneakiest, creative, crazy, manipulative, daring, quick-witted people who are mad enough to come out & play with us. You make it all worthwhile!
This coming January, we are celebrating 10 years of playing Jericho in SF and we’re throwing a Jericho party to celebrate!
January 10th -12th we’ll be hosting nine free Jericho games.
- Six of the free Jericho games will be a taste of our newest set of missions, with our laser tag satchels, Operation Grandslam. Players will get to play mission #1, which will be available at three different times on Sat & Sun (11th & 12th ). http://www.foxhoundua.com
- Three of the free Jericho games will be Nerf gun based like we play every month with our meetup group. One game will be held each day of the weekend. Friday Night, Saturday Night, Sunday afternoon. If you haven’t played this style, it is well worth your time to run with true Jericho vets who know downtown like the back of their hands and have more than a few tricks up their sleeves. https://www.meetup.com/San-Francisco-Jericho-meetup-group/events/
So we have a little under two months to get ready, and so do you! I hope that you’ll take the chance to come out and play with us, I’d love to meet you for the first time or get reacquainted since your departure.
I’m honored to have been at the helm of this ship of spies for the last decade (actually much longer, but that’s another story!) and I expect to see you soon!
