Alex chose the map and Sam the compass.
Alex was off to a quick start, following directions and collecting clues was easy with a map.
Sam was moving slower. A compass was helpful but it sure wasn’t as fast as a knowing the exact route. It took time to calculate the steps and find positions of each clue.
Alex was way out ahead and looked poised to win. But everything changed about 40 minutes into the hunt. The next clue was somewhere off the map.
Alex wandered aimlessly.
Sam used the compass, finding the right way each time. Though it was slower, it always worked. It was universal.
It’s no surprise that Sam won in the long term.
So which are you choosing, the compass or the map?
