The game seemingly channels "The Da Vinci Code," weaving fictional stories about searches for lost artifacts with common sight-seeing attractions in Italian cities. Four "guides" are currently available: Florence, Rome, Venice and Verona.
Whaiwhai, which means "to search for" in Maori, was manufactured by Italian game developer Log607; SelectItaly.com is now offering the game in both English and Italian for $33.75. A $75.95 kit provides a game book, city map and an Italian SIM card - all necessary for the interactive game, which sends codes via SMS to a number in your game book.
So, what do you think? Is this something you would try?
