Event description

Description

Something has been stolen. A mysterious box, left for the police with a cryptic note, sets you off on a trail of clues that will lead you around the city of Oxford.

Can you solve the riddles, decipher the hidden code and recover the treasure?


Come and join us for a smartphone treasure hunt!

Difficulty level: medium

Team size: up to 5 (only one ticket needed per team)

Duration: ~3 hrs (excluding optional breaks)


How does it work?

Instead of using bits of paper, this hunt is played via an app (iOS or Android) on your smartphone. Each team will need at least one phone or mobile data-enabled tablet, although you can sync up to 5 phones per team. You'll have to solve puzzles, decipher codes and hunt for things in the real world in order to find the answers and follow the trail!


What happens on the day?

You can start the hunt any time between 10.30am and 12 noon. Just turn up at the rendezvous point (which will be sent out to attendees closer to the time), you'll receive a short briefing from one of the hunt organisers, and then you're ready to go.

You have until 5pm to complete the hunt (most teams take between 3 and 4 hours). Once you've finished, there will be a pub to head to where you can share stories with other teams and we'll reveal the results!


Are there prizes?

You bet! As well as prizes for the top teams, we'll also be awarding some fun prizes.


Details of start rendezvous point and finishing pub, as well as instructions on installing the app, will be sent out to attendees closer to the time.
