This is a virtual scavenger hunt on the GooseChase app that is played in your own home and in your surrounding community. Anyone can participate as the missions are not geographically specific.

- How do we complete missions?
To complete a mission, select it from the mission list and follow the instructions to receive the allotted points. You will either need to submit a photo or video to show proof of completion. Some missions will require all team members to participate, so be sure to follow the rules in each mission.
- How many missions are in the game and what types of things will we have to do during the missions?
There will be over 50 missions to complete during the game, so you’ll want to complete as many as possible. Here are a couple of mission examples:
♦ Secret Talent-take a photo or video or a team member demonstrating their secret talent.
♦ Collections-we all have them. Take a photo of a team member with their collection. The wackier the collection the better.
♦ The Art of the Fold – submit a video of your team’s best attempt at folding a fitted sheet.
- Are there prizes?
Yes, we will be awarding the top three teams Amazon gift cards. The first place prize is a $300 gift card, second place is a $200 gift card and third place is a $100 gift card. Once the game ends, mission submissions will be verified for completeness. We will also be giving out a variety of $25 gift cards as the game unfolds. These will be awarded randomly for things like being the first team to complete a mission or most creative submission for a specific mission. These prize missions will be kept secret, so you never know when you might win a prize!
- What if there is a tie for the winners?
In the event of a tie, the time of submissions will be used to break the tie. If 2 teams have 500 points, the first team to have reached 500 first will be declared the winner. There is a live activity feed within the app that will be updated as teams complete missions, so each team can easily see where they stand.
