The Sorting Trials
The Sorting Trials gave every Microsoft intern an opportunity to get a taste of a Game experience. Some trials could be completed online, but many required participants to travel to different locations through the greater Seattle area to gather information from their surroundings or find hidden clues.
Each of the trials could be completed by itself. There were a number of "Live Sessions" throughout the summer where sites for a number of Trials were staffed for an afternoon or evening in order to provide on-site support for teams.
