Participants must have a vehicle to compete in the scavenger hunt, and each team must come equipped with $5 in cash per team, a digital camera, an Internet-connected device, and a preregistered cell phone in order to receive text messages through the night. Children are welcome to join the scavenger hunt.
On Saturday, October 27, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., organizers transform the city into a quest-laden underworld crawling with costumed scavengers wielding flashlights. Roving explorers and their vehicles band together and begin anywhere they choose within the game boundaries to gain an advantage when the first texted clues are sent.
An after-party for participants 21 and older concludes the event at a local pub with announcements of winners, prize distribution, and food and drink specials. Top finishers can win up to $500, spectacular team costumes can snag up to $100, the best Facebook-posted photo nets $50, and superior sportsmanship earns players a high-five from their other hand. Exact details about the party will be texted mid-hunt.
Though PDX Hunt sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
PDX Hunt pits teams against each other during treasure and beer hunts as they scour cities in search of checkpoints in order to win cash and prizes. Hunts are held in various cities across the country, with teams getting acquainted with their own city and one another as they fight for bragging rights. Text-messaged clues point contestants in the right direction, leading them to secret locations to which they then dash like dogs to spilled hot-dog water. At various locations, crews must complete unique tasks. Moving on foot or city bus, groups must stay together at all times, lest wanderers fall prey to competing gangs or become distracted by lurking shadow puppeteers. After the races, which can sometimes cover 4–6 miles, the top 10 placing teams receive prizes and glory for their skillful navigation of the town.
