Scavenger Hunt

How to participate:

placardThe scavenger hunt will take you to real locations straight out of the mystery novel. In order to participate, you'll need a QR code reader for your smart phone and an old-school paper Clue Sheet. Links for both of these are below.

At each site you'll find a placard with a QR code (that's how you know you found the right spot). Scan the QR code and it will bring up a video. The video will tell you about where you are, pose a challenge to solve, and then provide clues as to your next destination. In all, it should take you about 45 minutes and it should be fun!

The placards will be in place by 6:00 pm on Thursday, August 30th. Remember to bring your completed clue sheet to the party no later than 7:15 to qualify for great prizes. Doors open at 7:00.

Watch this video for more information.

Things you'll need to have:

1. Print out of the PDF Clue Sheet.
2. A free QR code reader for your smartphone. Some recommended ones are QR Reader for iPhone and Quickmark for Android.

Spoiler Alert: Don't look at this if you have a smartphone with QR reader as it will spoil all the fun . . . but if you are a total ludite, this is your ticket. While it requires a bit more of the honor system (no peeking ahead at clues) here's a totally low-tech approach to this QR-based scavenger hunt.
