JONESBORO — Arkansas Delta Byways, one of the 12 regional tourist associations recognized by Arkansas Tourism, has introduced two new interactive games – a trivia game and a National Scenic Byways Challenge aimed at educating visitors and residents about the historical region.
These games feature the four Arkansas State University Heritage Sites, all of which are interpretive centers on the two scenic byways.
The games were created in conjunction with Eksplor Gaming. The company produces apps designed to generate unique, competitive and fun experiences for visitors to travel- and tourism-themed towns, attractions and historical sites.
The trivia game features 14 questions with multiple choice answers that link to each of the attractions featured. There will be a quarterly prize drawing for those who play, with extra entries for those who complete the trivia game.
The first quarterly prize drawing will be Aug. 1.
The National Scenic Byway Challenge features the interpretive centers for Crowley’s Ridge Parkway and Great River Road, located throughout the 15-county Arkansas Delta Byways region. Players can choose between Crowley’s Ridge or the Great River Road and then visit the specific interpretive centers for that scenic byway.
When a player has completed two-thirds of the stops along either byway (10 for the Great River Road, six for Crowley’s Ridge), participants are eligible to register for a prize drawing for each byway by submitting their email.
Both games will run through May 1, 2022. To play, visit DeltaByways.com/games.
