Live Action Game of TRIVIAL PURSUIT/ Scavenger Hunt of Washington D.C.
THE GAME OF Trivial Pursuit® - without a board?
That's right! Today, we take to the streets of Washington to secure some of the best items throughout the our nation’s capital. At the same time, we will test our knowledge of easy, difficult (and sometimes useless) trivia as we tackle multiple subject areas:
So, dust off those degrees and get ready for some incredibly fun and exciting challenges against each other.
Each portion of the scavenger hunt will be related to a different "Trivial Pursuit topic" (i.e. history, sports,Georgraphy entertainment,...). Upon collecting items related to those topics, you will meet at a different part of DC at different times to engage in Trivial Pursuit style challenges.
How does it work?
1) Upon arrival we will break you into teams. Each team will be given a list of several clues and instructions (with random items to find to collect points). The items are all of little or no cost. They will generally be releated to a different Trivial Pursuit Category. (Note: If requested upon arrival we will put you on a team with any friends or other colleagues you may know.)
2) The list will also contain a location where each team must check in by a certain time. Each team should take whatever items it has and proceed to that location by the designated time. If you are late, you lose points. Teams are not expected to retrieve all of the items listed.
At each location, team members may participate in challenge to answer "Trivial Pursuit" Style questions. The better you are at the challenge, the more points you can get than the rest of the teams further your score.
3) Throughout the day, at each location, points will be calculated, teams will get a brief time to rest, and teams will be given a different list of items to retrieve and take to the next location. There will be 3 or 4 different check-ins throughout the Washington, D.C. Area, all of which are near Metro Stations and will be most likely indoors. At each check-in, teams will be given different instructions, lists and new challenges to complete.
4) Bonuses are given to the first team to arrive at each respective location. Teams will leave each location in the order in which they arrived. The winning team will be the one that collects the most points! Special prizes will be awarded to the top teams.
There will be a special treats waiting for everyone at the finish line.
All teams must use public transportation. Teams caught using personal cars will be disqualified. We recommend that you bring a Metro card with at least $10 on it when you arrive.
Throughout the day, you'll visit many landmarks in D.C., restaurants, schools, theaters, and much more! There are over 100 items listed and what you see depends upon your team's resolve, speed and ability to have fun!
Note: The race starts at noon sharp!
