Scavenger Hunt

Rules† ††


Monday, June 21 - Friday, June 25, 2021

How Does it Work?

The scavenger hunt will be a team activity in which QR codes are located around the metro area. Only one person per company needs to find the QR code and "check-in" in order for the company to receive points. Clues for the locations will be given every day during the week of the scavenger hunt on social media. Those clues will be posted on this page as well. Points will be given for each code checked in by the company, as well as bonus points for the first company in each division to check in. See the Rules button for further information.

The employee who checks in MUST be logged into their Corporate Games Manager account and see the green confirmation screen stating that the check-in has been successful in order to guarantee that the company will receive credit for the check-in.
