Any unskilled innovator's out there?

Hi! My name is Eric and I am working on my own game project. I find myself as someone who has some very cool ideas but lacks the skills to implement them myself.

Eric Tran replied to Sarah Best's discussion City scavenger hunts in the group City Games
"I think scavenger hunts are great gaming mechanics because they have a lot of potential to get people to collaborate and explore together. When people are given a set of things to find and clues as to how to find them, that has this magical effect…"
