The Great Seattle Arts Adventure

Welcome to our game

The Great Seattle Arts Adventure is all-ages scavenger hunt style adventure game for teams to engage in activities related to arts and arts organizations in the Seattle area. Teams join the game via a mobile app to complete missions for points. New missions will be released throughout the game. Teams earn points by answering trivia questions or by completing activities and submitting photos or videos. The missions are intended to be done at home or within a participant’s neighborhood boundaries to adhere to local stay at home regulations. Whether you’re an arts lover in the Seattle area, in Washington State or beyond, you’ll be able to enjoy and learn something new in this game. Teams may join the game at any point, and anyone can play. Seattle Shakespeare Company is hosting the game on behalf of other participating arts organization and utilizes the Goose Chase platform to host the game.

Want to play as a team?

Playing on a team is a great way to connect with friends whom you may not see all that often or is a way for a family to have a fun shared activity. Multiple mobile devices can join the game together under one team profile and all players on a team work together to complete the same mission list! When a player completes a mission, that mission is marked complete for their whole team. Since only one player from each team can complete any individual mission, all teams have a fair chance to win – even if they contain a different number of players.

  • After downloading the app and joining the game, players will be prompted to enter a team name, and an optional photo and access code when they enter the game (you can edit this later.)
  • When a participant chooses to create a team, an access code is auto-filled for the user or team organizer (this is done to prevent other participants from unintentionally joining the wrong team).
  • To invite others to join your team, simply send them the access code generated for your team.
  • There isn’t a limit on the number of users that can join a team, we recommend teams of 3 – 5 players, to keep all players engaged during the entire game. A team can also consist of one individual player.
  • The Activity Feed and Leader board in the app will display submissions and rankings for each team so that you can see how other teams are doing in comparison to your team.

Sharing on Social media

From within the GooseChase mobile app, a participant can choose to share their photo and video submissions on social media. Should a participant choose to share, a link to the submission is shared, the mission name, and the hashtag specified in the game.
