How do I join the scavenger hunt?

Scavenger hunt guidelines

  • Be sure you're completing missions accurately. For example, "Take a picture with a zebra" means to take a picture with a real zebra, not next to a zebra on a computer screen. TIP: Your game organizer can deduct points if your submission falls short; however, bonus points may be awarded for missions completed in extraordinary fashion!
  • Use the navigation tabs to keep track of how you're doing as well as receive notifications from the game organizer.
  • The game is active from 9 a.m. July 1 through 5 p.m. July 31. The team with the most points wins a catered after-hours rental at Ford Pool (for up to 30 people) and the individual with the most points wins an Apple watch! Winners announced the week of August 2.
