Eventzee Exposure: T6 Conference

In “Eventzee Exposure” we look at testimonials from happy clients who have hosted their own Scavenger Hunts. Our users’ experience is very important to us, so when things go off without a hitch we want to cheer about it. If you’d be interested in sharing your Eventzee experience please reach out to eventzee@munzee.com.

Event: T6 Conference

Event Breakdown:

For the past few years, the North Coastal Consortium for Special Education has sponsored a free 2-day Summer Institute called Totally Terrific Teaching Techniques & Technology Tools (T6).  They reached out to Eventzee with the hopes of attracting more participants as well as to increase the level of participation through use of mobile tech. Using strategically played QR code clues, the event drove player traffic to various areas of the conference and encouraged interaction.

Testimonial:

“It was a total success! The scavenger hunt coupled with the chance to win prizes created an enjoyable experience for our participants.  They had a wonderful time and enjoyed using the leaderboard feature so that they could see where they stood at any time.  The way that the Eventzee admin portal is set up, made it really easy for the facilitators.  We were able to turn the game on/off at any time so that the participants would make it to their sessions on time.

Being that this was a technology conference, we got a little creative on how to share the instructions for the scavenger hunt. Check it out!

– Denise Hernandez, Assistive Technology Program Specialist
North Coastal Consortium for Special Education (NCCSE)

QR Code Clue Description Examples:

  • You may need a magnifying lens to find me on the back of a T6 helper’s shirt.
  • I’m in the middle of two flights.
  • Take a trip to the second floor, look for a “Strategic Plan”.
  • Thanks, I will take your paper or plastic please.

Themed Hunts and Clue Creations

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. While Eventzee makes it easy to host your own scavenger hunt, it’s up to YOU to make it memorable. So if you’re considering putting on your own, here’s a few tips to get you started.

Themes can be a good way to make your Eventzee scavenger hunt more cohesive and unified for those involved. By creating clues around a common theme or subject you can encourage relevant creativity and also help your event stand out as a learning device.

Coming Up With A Theme
Themes can stem from anything involving your event or get-together. If you’re running an event for a special occasion such as a birthday party, baby shower, etc., your clues can take on those themes to encourage excitement and celebration. Hosting a birthday party for a friend? Make clues that represent your friends’ interests. Use a scavenger hunt for a wedding by hiding significant items that represent the happy couple.

If you’re running a more general event that isn’t tied directly to a specific theme, you can choose a more standard idea. Themes such as “Colors”, “Household Items”, or “Around Town” can be fun for pretty much anyone, anywhere, any time of year.

wordartClue Creation
With all Scavenger Hunt clues you want to make sure they are fun and engaging, while not being too specific and difficult to find. This is especially true for themed hunts as you want to maintain the goal of the theme along without becoming too abstract. When coming up with themed clues we suggest creating a web chart to help brainstorm ideas. This way you can start with your theme and expand upon ideas easily.

It’s also important to take into account that all the ideas you come up with have to be attainable in the real world as well. Since players will have to take photos of the clues in real life it has to be a somewhat attainable clue.

Examples
Here at Eventzee we encourage creativity and our awesome clients have hosted a number of themed Scavenger Hunts.

  • From “12 Days of Christmas” to “Pre-Paddy’s Day”, holidays make great themes for Scavenger Hunts.
  • We’ve seen teachers use literary themes like a “Hobbit Hunt” to encourage engagement in a classroom reader and “Pi Day” is always a big hit with math instructors.
  • One man based a scavenger hunt around his parent’s 45th Wedding Anniversary,

Now that you have some ideas about how to start your Eventzee scavenger hunt, go out and make it happen! If you’re interested in hosting an Eventzee event, sponsoring an official Eventzee photo hunt or just curious about what we can do, check out www.eventzeeapp.com.

Eventzee Exposure: Troy Titans Football Club

In “Eventzee Exposure” we look at testimonials from happy clients who have hosted their own Scavenger Hunts. Our users’ experience is very important to us, so when things go off without a hitch we want to cheer about it. If you’d be interested in sharing your Eventzee experience please reach out to eventzee@munzee.com.

Host: Troy Titans Football Club

Location: Troy, IL

Event Breakdown:

The Troy Titans football club used Eventzee for their annual fundraising scavenger hunt, turning away from traditional pencil and paper hunts. They directed teams of participants to different areas of town to participate in crazy tasks. Each team was given an inflatable “buddy” they had to include in their photos.

Testimonial:

We used Eventzee for our annual Scavenger Hunt. As the coordinator, it saved me so much time in kicking off our event. As far as all of our volunteers, it saved us a ton of time at the end of our event. In the past we have had a roomful of people checking in with their scavenger hunt items – taking time and space. Using an app completely streamlined our process and helped me keep my sanity.

Our participants loved it! They didn’t like how they couldn’t rip apart pages of clues so everyone on the team could work simultaneously, but that was the point! Everyone enjoyed sharing pictures and videos. Many of our participants could have used better lighting on their phones but I think that is something they will have to work on.

Our Scavenger Hunt is a fun event for our club. We don’t make a lot of money from the event. We just want something easy and fun. Eventzee helped us with that. The app streamlined our event, saved us time and labor, and allowed more of our participants to have a good time.

– Cindy Mahnesmith – Director of Fundraising, Troy Titans Football Club

Clue Examples:

  • 12 Little Monkeys – Photo of a team member hanging upside down on monkey bars.
  • America’s Got Talent – Take a picture of a teammate doing a headstand in a bar.
  • Drink UP – Take a picture of entire team, including inflatable buddy, drinking from one drink (each person, including buddy, has own straw)
  • Good Samaritan – Take a picture of a teammate pumping gas for someone while that person holds your inflatable.
  • Just being helpful – Take a photo of at least two team members helping fold clothes in a public laundry mat.

Photo Examples:

Use Admin Tools To Quickly and Efficiently Administrate Your Event

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. While Eventzee makes it easy to host your own scavenger hunt, it’s up to YOU to make it memorable. So if you’re considering putting on your own, here’s a few tips to get you started.

So you’ve set up your hunt, everyone has signed up and the event is about to kick off. Next thing you know hundreds of photos are flying in and you somehow have to keep up and approve them all. What to do? Luckily, Eventzee makes photo approval quick with our easy-to-use admin tools.

Dashboard
The event Dashboard is a great place to check on leaderboards, messages and submitted photos. There are direct links to player accounts, the clue list and more so you can effectively run your hunt. You can see all of the photos that come in, and approve or deny them here as well.

The Event Dashboard Page

Photo Review
Although the Dashboard is a great page to call home base for your event, we highly suggest using the Photo Review page for the actual approval process. Although you can approve from the event Dashboard, Photo Review displays the photos anonymously so there won’t be a bias when approving.

The Photo Review Page

Clue List
Sometimes it’s not so easy to memorize 20 clues word for word so we suggest having a tab open with the clue list. This way if you’re uncertain whether a photo qualifies or not
you can quickly view exactly what the clues is asking for. You can also edit clues from this page in case wording seems confusing for your players.

Screenshot 2016-03-15 14.25.17

The Clue List Page

Clue Timeline
Happen to have more than one approver? Break approval up by clues by clicking on a particular clue. This is also where you can change whether a photo is supposed to be approved or denied in case of a mistake or a dispute. Just click on a particular clue to see the timeline of approvals and denials. To change it just click the correct icon and the image will update.

Screenshot 2016-03-15 14.38.06

A Clue Timeline Page

Player Timeline
As you’re approving it can be easy to get into a groove and accidentally accept or decline a photo that shouldn’t be. So when a player messages you, you can go check that in that particular player’s timeline. Just click on the player’s name to access this page.

Hosting your own scavenger hunt can be daunting at times, but Eventzee makes it easy to create and control the event.
