Welcome to the Game 

As history teacher Mr. Spenser told teen drama king Holden Caulfield in J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye, "Life is a game, boy. Life is a game that one plays according to the rules." Though Holden disagreed with Mr. Spenser, we think he had a point: We move through life just like we move through the city we call home, rolling the dice with every choice we make and jumping from space to space, relationship to relationship, coffee shop to coffee shop. In this year's Annual Manual, the 2019 edition of our city guide, we've fully embraced the game that is living in Boise, and we're inviting you to play along.

In our version, each flip of a page is the equivalent of a dice roll, and you never know where on the board you'll land. We do, however, guarantee that you'll learn something at every space. As you make your away around the board, our talented writers will take you to archery ranges, artist-in-residencies, vegan restaurants, the local LGBTQ center, a famous cleaning company, an iconic record store, the Greenbelt, a warehouse full of costumes, the backstage of the Morrison Center and a rack of e-scooters. They'll even push Boise's limits by exploring the mind of an award-winning author, an all-too-possible fictional bar and the wilds of a popular Instagram account.

To win the game, snag the copy of Annual Manual that you're holding and hop through all 13 spaces—we'll reward you with an invisible crown, the sweet taste of victory, and a better understanding of the city you stroll every day and the people you share it with.
