Additional Information

Some key guidelines are below (not all are listed).

  • This record is for the greatest number of people taking part in an augmented reality scavenger hunt in one week.

  • This record should be attempted by a group of unlimited size.

  • This record is measured by the number of active participants.

  • For the purposes of this record, a scavenger hunt is a game in which the organizers prepare a list defining specific items, using which the participants/individuals or teams travel to various locations or find certain objects. The goal is usually to be the first to complete the list, or gain the most points (or both). In this case the most ARks collected by a user.

  • For the purposes of this record, Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or      supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video,      graphics or GPS data.

  • The record is for the number of people playing the game but the overall winner/s of the game  MUST be included in the documentation. 

  • All players must be well versed in the official rules of the game.

  • The scavenger hunt must contain a minimum of 15 unique locations that must be found. {750 ARks will be hidden for this event.)

  • The scavenger hunters must participate online by interacting with AR objects at the specified locations or by checking in using GPS data.

  • Only participants who successfully check-in/interact with all the AR markers will count towards the final total.

  • Participants must play as individuals. 

  • No player may be counted twice.

  • The scavenger hunt must start and finish at the same time for all participants.

  • The event is continuous. The clock does not stop. One week means a complete 7-day cycle including rest breaks. For example, if the event starts at 12 noon on Monday, it must finish at 12 noon the following Monday.
