Urban Goose Chase
A curious madness has taken hold of average citizens in North America, the UK, and South Africa. Groups of adults rove the city in packs, staring down at their smartphones before impersonating tapanaki 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 48 hours in advance; 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 $300 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.
