Scavenger Hunt

I have an idea for a game similar tag, but not limited by location. If there is enough interest I think this game could really take off. Much like the tag game all you need is your motorcycle, camera, and a bit of luck.

How it works:

There is an "item" that needs to have a photograph taken. A rider finds said item, takes a photograph of said "item" with their bike, then that rider posts up the picture and calls out the next item.

Example: The scavenger hunt item is a pink car. This is posted in the thread, and the first rider to take a photograph of their motorcycle with a pink car gets to choose the next "item". So any pink car would work in any location.

You can be creative as you want to be as long as the "item" is possible for everyone else to get, even if it needs a little searching.

Re: Scavenger Hunt

Not a bad idea and I could possibly sit at work and play. When I first read it I thought of an old GPS game were someone would leave something somwhere and give the gps cordinates to find it.

Re: Scavenger Hunt

Yep...I play this over at volusiariders dot com. We play "you and your bike with whatever item/location/situation.."

Start it up, I'm game here as well.

Re: Scavenger Hunt

Just to clarify a bit more, this is not searching for a physical item (such as a toy or stuffed animal, but something you can park your bike next to similar to the TAG game)

OK, first "item". Take a photograph of your bike at a historical marker.

Re: Scavenger Hunt

So do these photos have to be taken "after" the scavenger is named, or can they be photos taken from before the scavenger is named that you have saved?

At first I read that and I was like ***? lol

Your scavenger item/location is a bit specific, and it might limit some people depending on their mileage to that location. If no one gets this after a while, perhaps you can generalize it a bit more? I know exactly what your "item" is, but unfortunately I will not be able to get over there this weekend. Hopefully someone will be able to grab it!

Re: Scavenger Hunt

If no one can get it I can change it to something less specific. Maybe someone in the Denton area can grab it.

Re: Scavenger Hunt

The rule we follow on te other one is that if the target is not hit within 1 or 2 weeks, the poster can hit their own target to keep the game moving.

Targets should be somewhat generic so that everyone can play regardless of location.

I can do that for you 1/2 mile from my house and I was just at my fave Italian place, too! HA! Cracked me up (even though I'm late to the party).

Hmm... mullet...mullet...mullet...
