Boo's Clues Halloween Scavenger Hunt πŸ‘»

It's getting spoooky on GooseChase! The Boo's Clues Scavenger Hunt will be full of Halloween inspired missions as part of a virtual Scavenger hunt on GooseChase, running October 29-31st!

Your family will complete missions alongside the community virtually!


Using GooseChase is as Easy as 1...2...3!

1. Register & Join the Game

Download the GooseChase app. Login to the GooseChase app on your device and search for the name of the game and proceed to enter the game code and password to start the game.

TIP: You will need to register an account on GooseChase if you wish to exit and come back to the game, playing as a guest will not save your submissions. 


2. Complete Missions & Check Back for more!

To complete a mission, select it from the list and follow the instructions to receive the allotted points. Sometimes you’ll be submitting a photo or video, while other times, you will be solving a puzzle or riddle. Remember that while you receive the points right away, all submissions are subject to review by the organizer. Make sure to finish all the missions in the game even if you're behind on the leaderboard. Organizers still need to announce the final scores after they review the submissions!

TIP: Watch for missions that have bonus points... Plus, missions are released throughout the game!


3. Watch the Leaderboard & Track Opponents

The ability to see everything as it happens is one of the best parts of GooseChase. That’s because whenever someone completes a mission, it’s added to the activity feed, and the rankings are automatically updated.
