A curious madness has taken hold of average citizens in North America. Groups of adults rove the city in packs, staring down at their smartphones before impersonating teppanyaki chefs at a coffeehouse condiment counter and knitting with plastic bags. This is an Urban Goose Chase.
The taskmasters at Urban Goose Chase turn the notion of a traditional scavenger hunt on its ear by communicating with teams via an Android- and iPhone-compatible app. Event instructions are sent out upon registration; teams download the app and receive a variety of missions from which they can select. Successfully completed missions earn teams the points they need to gain rank on the leaderboard and win the $200 first prize. During the chase, each team’s standings are updated in real time and visible to other teams, creating a sense of urgency, much like wearing an hourglass in place of a wristwatch.
