New technology is changing the way we play old games. President of the Abilene Cultural Affairs Council, Trish Trifilo, dreamed up the idea to use an international scavenger hunt app during the 2015 Children’s Art and Literacy Festival in Abilene.
Trifilo had a free app open on her smart phone Tuesday as she navigated through a new game created for people in Abilene.
“This is called a goose chase app,” Trifilo said. “It’s an app that was created about four years ago by a group in Canada and the U.S. and it’s an international app. It’s a scavenger hunt game.”
