Announcing ZeeTours Contests

As we announced in Eventzee’s Year In Review post, 2018 is a year of Transitions. With that in mind we’re excited to promote our sister app ZeeTours’ new Contest feature- which you can join NOW in the ZeeTours app.

As a quick refresher, ZeeTours is a self-guided City Tour app that combines fitness, learning and fun into an unforgettable experience. Follow the tour path to a variety of points of interest, solve clues to complete challenges, and learn more about the city around you.

Currently ZeeTours has a handful of tours in American cities, but we wanted to give international players a chance to join in the fun- that’s where the Contests come in.

Similar to Eventzee’s former Premium Hunt platform, these pay-to-play Contests allow players from around the world to compete for prizes by completing themed Trivia and Photo Challenges. A new Contest is held each week starting on Wednesdays and running through Mondays. Each Contest includes a wide variety of Trivia and Photo challenges based on a weekly theme.

To join a Contest players need to:

  • Download the ZeeTours app
  • Go to the Contests tab
  • Tap on that week’s event
  • Complete the in-app purchase of 5 ZeeTokens to enter

As players complete Challenges they will earn points and a spot on the leaderboard. The top three winners from each Contest will then be awarded prizes.The prizes will vary from week to week, but could be Freeze Tag Inc gift cards, Amazon gift cards, etc.

Although ZeeTours has some similar features, there are a few notable differences that will make this a bit different of an experience from what Eventzee players are used to. We think you’ll all have a great time, but here’s a quick rundown of some of the differences.

Sequential Challenges
Unlike Eventzee’s list of clues being released all at once, in ZeeTours you’ll have to complete each Challenge one by one to advance to the next task.

Trivia Challenges
ZeeTours Contests put a big focus on Trivia Challenges. Similar to Eventzee you’ll lose points if you answer incorrectly, but there is also a speed bonus for answering correctly quickly.

Themed Challenge Sets
In its current iteration ZeeTours Contests are broken into mini themed sets of Challenges.

Each set will include:

  • An informational slide announcing the theme and introducing the Trivia Challenge
  • A timed Trivia Challenge question
  • Three Photos Challenges

Photo Review
Unlike Eventzee there is no ongoing review process with ZeeTours Contests. At the end of the Contest the top three players will have their photos reviewed to make sure there are no clear cheaters. Because of this players will have the length of the Contest to complete challenges and upload photos, but will not be able to resubmit their photos if they are declined. In the event a cheater is identified, their Challenge will receive zero points and a new player will take their spot on the leaderboard.

In other ZeeTours news, we have also released tours in an additional five American cities with another four tours going live on Friday, February 2nd. All tours are available for purchase at www.zeetoursapp.com, in the mobile app via in-app purchase and through the Groupon app and website.

Thank you all for your continued support of both Eventzee and ZeeTours! Be sure to join this weekend’s ZeeTours Contest as well as our usual Weekend Warriors free photo scavenger hunt, which goes live Thursday at 3 PM CST.

The Adventures of Flat Bob!

We’re proud to announce that the next Eventzee Free Photo Hunt will feature the one and only Flat Stanley Bob! As President of Eventzee it’s important for Bob to know his players and ideally he’d love to visit you all. Unfortunately he’s a busy man, so he’s sending a more two-dimensional version of himself.

You might remember Flat Stanley from grade school, but if not here’s the rundown: Flat Stanley was a children’s book published by Jeff Brown in 1964. In the mid 90s a popular campaign started where elementary school students would send a cutout of “Flat Stanley” to relatives or friends across the world who would then document Stanley’s adventures.

We loved the idea of sending our own Flat Bob on his own adventures so we want to see where you take him! Starting on Monday clues will be released that include snapping pics with Bob in various situations. Some will include dressing him up, other taking him places, but all involving him. It should be noted that Flat Bob tends to take his adventures to the extreme though, so you may need to have a few more copies on hand. Below you will find a Flat Bob cutout you print out and decorate. We’d love to see your Bobs, so tag @Eventzee on social media with #FlatBob so we can find him!
