Know Your Hunt- Hidden Message

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.

The goal of most scavenger hunts is to drive traffic to specific areas and get players to explore. While this holds true with Eventzee we also encourage our clients to use our tools educationally. QR Code hidden messages are perfect for driving traffic to specific areas and sharing information, history and more about the area the code is hidden in. Perfect for historical tours, campus explorations and more!

MessageHowTo

History Repeats Itself
Hidden Message tours are perfect for sharing information about the history of a city. Whether you post codes that link to the history of specific buildings in a historic downtown area, or you even about the business itself, Eventzee is perfect. These particular hunts are ideal for ongoing tours that people can join at any time and use to explore specific areas of their town or city. 

Bonus Content
Hidden Messages can also include links to outside information like youtube videos, photos, contact forms, etc. Link to a video to have a virtual tour guide on hand at all times! Link to an image of a special discount code to bring business for shops and restaurants! Perfect for coalitions of small businesses to join together in a unique marketing experience.

Mystery Scavenger Hunts
Want to get really creative? Use the hidden messages as descriptions for clue locations to make scavenger hunts more difficult and inspire critical thinking. Essentially label all your clues as Clue 1, Clue, Clue 2, Clue 3, etc. and only reveal clue locations upon finding and scanning the next code. Once they find the current code the message attached to it would be how players find the next clue. Make them really work for it!

Creating Hidden Message Clues
Setting up Hidden Message clues is easy. You’ll add QR Code clues like normal, but remember that your Clue Title and Description will lead the players to the hidden code. From there you’ll need to click the gear icon to enter the individual clue’s settings. Then simply click on the “Message” section and type in your block of text.

Screenshot 2016-04-27 16.47.23Remember, your event is what you make it, but Eventzee is here to make it as easy on you as possible. Take your event to the next level with our new Hidden Message feature!

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, contact us at eventzee@munzee.com.

Testimonial:

We used Eventzee to do our Staff Development Scavenger Hunt.  It was a pretty simple process.  I provided our list of clues and corresponding points.  Eventzee loaded the information into the app.  All we had to do is sign in to access the scavenger hunt clues.  I really like the real-time leaderboard.  It definitely motivated the competitive nature of our employees.

Our employees thoroughly enjoyed this event.  They like the photo capture feature especially.  They would like us to put together another event similar to this.  I’m currently thinking of the theme.

Eventzee benefited our event in that the setup was so quick and easy.  All I had to do is sign into the website to monitor the photos and approve/deny them.

Eventzee Exposure: Reidsville Christian Church

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.

RCC Summer Quest 2015 Logo 2

Host: Reidsville Christian Church

Event: Summer Quest

Event Breakdown and Testimonial:

Our original plan was to enhance a 2015 summer teaching series about discovering the different attributes of God with another GPS game for our families. However, two days into the first Eventzee hunt in January, 2015, it was evident that Eventzee would have a greater impact on our church’s families for creating both excitement and participation. We held four week-long events centered around the past week’s teaching topic, with different game variations each week. Week 1 was a standard hunt based on God’s creative power. In Week 2 (God’s love) we added bonus points for creativity as well as the first photos submitted for each clue.  Week 3 (God’s holiness) was a church competition depending on which side of the auditorium you usually sat – left or right. With Week 4 (God’s All-Knowing nature), we played with the standard Eventzee format based on time.

“Having played Eventzee myself, I knew how much fun the scavenger hunts could be, but I was completely blown away by quickly many of our church family got excited. During the four weeks there were over a hundred individuals and families who signed up to play. On the weeks when bonus points were awarded for the first photos on each clue, there was a mad rush at 6 AM by many to be the first! On one particular Sunday afternoon, I approved over 250 photos within the first thirty minutes of their release. During this time, someone called me the Puppet Master saying that I all I had to do was send out a short text message, and people started running!

For us as staff, however, the best parts of the hunts were watching our church family interact with other members who they might not have previously known, seeing fringe people get involved, and witnessing individual families spending memorable time with each other. As one individual said, “I have photos that I will cherish for the rest of my life that I never would have had without these hunts.”

The software was easy to use and the Eventzee Team was even better! Each week they answered my questions and did everything possible to make our hunts a success. They gave great insight and advice while letting us tailor the hunts to best fit our situation. We enjoyed the experience so much that we immediately purchased a year’s subscription. While we have used it to this point with smaller groups, we look forward to another big month of Eventzee this summer with our church family!”

Shannon Newsome, Senior Minister, Reidsville Christian Church

Clue Examples:

  • Baby, it’s Hot Outside! – Take a pic of an outdoor thermometer (not a car) registering the actual temperature.
  • Magazine Gospel – Spell out the phrase “John 3:16” using only cut-out letters from a magazine or newspaper, and the letters can only be red.

  • Dirt Dexterity – Build a sand castle or a mud pie, depending on your weather and/or location. (no computer pictures / live pictures only)
