Alternate Reality Games

An ARG is an "Alternate Reality Game". It is one in which the occasion or information can occasionally link to real life pages, created for that specific ARG, twitter accounts, e-mails, and using web pages and books to find out information and thus figure out the clues. We have been informed that AOH may be seeing quite a few ARGs in the future and this page will have a list of them.

You can read more about ARGs here:

Unfiction Website

ARGs can use many types of devices and a WIDE variety of knowledge. A recent one for the release of another game involved Morse code, Bible verses, ciphers of all sorts, decoding using webpages, and even stenography (the hiding of files within .jpegs, simplified) for certain pictures. There's no telling what the AOH ARGs may bring on, but don't discount any bit of knowledge. As they become apparent to be needed, I'll try to include lists of potential tools to use here.
