It's hard to explain. Here's a rather wordy wiki link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternate_reality_game
Basically there is one or more persons running the game from "behind the curtain". They set you puzzles, challenges, treasure hunts, anything really that takes place in the real world (as opposed, for example, to an XBox game or a table top role playing game). Can involve internet searches, real websites, websites made up just for the game, meetings with "characters" in real life venues, phone calls and so on.
Very absorbing, addictive and the prizes can be great. A friend of mine ran one and it was fantastic. It was history, geography, literature, maths and more. Great if you like puzzles or a mystery. Needs a fair amount of time dedicating to it though. Lots of research.
