The game:

  • Choose your own adventure to earn points! There are many ways to earn points, and have a fun, memorable afternoon so do whichever ones interest you the most.

  • There are clues that are time sensitive, such as those during registration, and other clues may be released later in the game on our social pages. Keep an eye out!

  • Each trivia question will lead to a specific location, where you can earn points for the game by taking a photo. Some trivia challenges will have 2-3 steps to keep it interesting and break up the playing field.

  • Our team will be approving submissions for points. You will be notified if you submit an incorrect answer, and have the chance to try again.

  • There will be bonus scavenger hunt clues that will be posted by @bostonypa, giving you the opportunity for more points. Be sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and like our Facebook page!

FAQs

Can I play on my own? Absolutely. Just buy an individual ticket.

I want to spend the day with friends, but compete individually, can I do that? Of course. You just need to all buy individual tickets.
Can I join a team later after buying a ticket? Can we form a team after buying tickets? Not a problem. Teams are cemented during Registration. As long as everyone has a ticket you are good to go.

My friend doesn’t want to play, just hangout with our team. Is that okay? This event is so awesome that at some point your friend is going to want to play, or get some of the super cool swag. We can’t have supplies run out because of unregistered participants so any team playing with someone unregistered will be disqualified.

I bought a pack of 6 tickets, do all my friends have to be with me to register? Nope! Only the person who bought the tickets needs to be there to pick up the wristbands and register your team. Nominate your most responsible friend for this duty.

Can I join a team after starting the scavenger hunt as an individual on June 16th? No one can change teams after Registration on 6/16. One person from each team will create a team name. Once you start, that's your team. Team's cannot be merged, or split after registering.
How many grand prizes are there? There is one grand prize. It will be awarded to the individual or team with the most points. Regardless of if an individual wins, a 2 person pair wins, a 3 person group wins, or a 10 person team wins, it's the same prize. We have tiebreakers ready to go. Playing as a group doesn't mean you will have better odds, but it could mean you'll have more fun.
How do you decide who wins the Instagram challenges? Our Board members will be voting, with our director of social media breaking any ties. Photos will be judged on creativity, image quality, tags and message content, and accuracy of location.
How old do I need to be to play? You must be over 18 to play. You must be 21+ to purchase alcohol at the after party. No exceptions. Anyone not following this guideline will cause your entire team to be disqualified.
