Holiday Inn Starts Web Travel Game
Travelling is said to be always an adventure. Holiday Inn Worldwide says it is bringing that experience to cyberspace, in its new Internet World Wide Web site.
The company has licensed the electronic rights to “Travel Buff,” a board game that has been rated the number one adult trivia board game by “Games Magazine,” officials said.
he game lets people have fun, and educates users about the company’s properties at the same time, officials said. They can answer Travel Buff questions on food, culture, arts and sciences, literature, history, and politics, among other subjects. Future upgrades to the game will let people play against each other around the world, and a virtual reality (VR) segment that will let users “walk” through a property.
Our idea was to be a little less boring than some of the other things that are out there in the commercial sense,” Smith said.
This really tells the world we’re an international company,” Smith said. He also said the points that are scored might even be converted to prizes in the future.
Also, users will be able to make reservations at any Holiday Inn through clickable maps, and lists of attractions, cities, and highways. Those transactions can also be secured, through using a browser that supports security, like Netscape.
