Scavenger hunts have always been a fun way to interact with others and support camaraderie, but we’ve moved past the limitations of pen and paper. Eventzee takes scavenger hunts to a whole new level by supporting worldwide events and new ways to interact with players. But say you’re just a hunter, a participant in the Eventzee event- what can you do to make the most of your hunt? The hard part has already been done, someone has planned the hunt, but it’s important that those participating in the hunt make it fun for all as well.
Check the Rules
Most large events will publish a list of rules before the event. CHECK THEM. Know what you can and can’t use. Know how the event is going to work. There’s nothing worse for a participant than having your submissions rejected because you weren’t following the rules. With photo hunts the admin rules all, so if you don’t follow along they’ll make sure you’re far from the top of the leaderboard.
Pick your Partner
If the event you’re attending allows for partners or groups that you can choose yourself, do it. Working in groups can allow for fast and more innovative submissions. Put some extra thought into who you want to work with. This isn’t to say that you should both split up to conquer the clues faster, because the fun in Eventzee is working together and experiencing the clues and activities. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to have someone to snap a picture of you. If you forgot your selfie-stick at home, that is.
Prepare for Anything
Large events are usually scheduled for rain or shine circumstances. Don’t get caught in the cold wearing shorts and a t-shirt or caught in the rain with no jacket. Check the weather forecast leading up to the event to make sure you’re prepared. Most hunts will be outside, so be ready for anything.
Sure, you can complete the task the easy way and just do the minimum. That may get you the points, but you probably won’t win that way. Being creative may get you extra points or prizes, and it will definitely be more fun. Remember though, the admin for the event gets to decide what is creative and worth bonus points. So if you know the admin, play to their interests.
Speaking of fun…
Have it! No matter what the event is for, photo scavenger hunts are supposed to be fun! Being too serious or too careless are never good things. Complete the clues as thoroughly as you can, but make it enjoyable.
