The Rules

How do you win?  You’re completing three different kinds of challenges. You can do them in any order:

  • 8 Collect or Create Challenges Choose up to 8 from the list of options. Each object you collect or create can satisfy only one challenge below (so no double-dipping). Before the end of the hunt, email ONE photo with all of your objects in it to pix2@watsonadventures.com. Include your team name or number in the subject line. 5 points each.
  • 12 Team Photo Challenges Choose up to 12 from the list of options. Everyone on the team must be in each photo (except the person holding the camera). Before the end of the hunt, email the photos with your team name or number in the subject line to pix2@watsonadventures.com. 5 points each, and the team with the most creative photos gets 5 bonus points.
  • Interactive Challenge During the hunt, your Hunt Host will meet you for a unique challenge worth 10 points. Listen carefully to the Hunt Host to find out when and where to do this challenge.

Where can you go? Anywhere you want! But don’t split up or you’ll be penalized. We’ll be spying on you.

Do you have to spend money?  No! But if you choose to, your team can spend up to $10.

Can you earn bonus points?  Yes! The best team name wins 3 bonus points. The team with the most creative photos wins 5 bonus points.

How long do you have? 90 minutes. There are NO bonus points for finishing early! But you lose 2 points for every 5 minutes you are late arriving at the finish line.

Be safe! Accessing and playing this game constitutes consent to the Hunt Participant Waiver. You are responsible for your own safety. And the number one rule is: Be nice to other people.
