Intelligence is informing us that a time machine is going to crash land in the very near future. To be prepared we are gathering qualified community members to be ready for anything. Residents will work together in teams of four to find the missing “out of towners” and help get them back home to whatever century they came from. We need to solve this extraordinary problem before we alter the course of history or the future or the universe or whatever.
Can you help us find these “out of towners” and help get them home?
