Creating Your Adventure with Questovery

Creating your treasure hunt with Questovery is an exciting process that allows you to design an immersive experience for your participants. Here's how to proceed:

1. Quest and Description

It all starts with creating your quest. Give it a catchy name to sum up the adventure ahead. Write a captivating introduction to immerse participants in the story or context of the game. Add an evocative image to provide a visual preview of the adventure.

2. Craft Engaging Stages with Ease

Creating stages, one of the most exciting parts of building your treasure hunt with Questovery, is a straightforward process in several steps. Follow these instructions to create stages that will captivate your participants:

  • Stage Name (visible to the organizer): Begin by assigning a name to each stage. This name is only visible to you, the organizer, and will help you track the sequence of stages in your course.

  • Detailed Description: Write a detailed description that provides clues to locate the stage's location. Dive into the story and get creative by incorporating specific details that will immerse participants in the plot. If your treasure hunt follows a particular theme, make sure to include theme-related elements in the description.

  • Precise GPS Location: Physically visit the stage's location and record its GPS coordinates using your phone. Ensure that the GPS location is accurate, as participants will need to reach it to progress in the game.

  • Questions or Secret Messages: Create one or more questions or secret messages that will be revealed to participants once they are close enough to the stage's GPS point. The questions can be related to the story or the location and should encourage participants to explore their surroundings for answers.

  • Illustrative Image: Add an image to the stage to help participants visualize the location and confirm that they are in the right place. This image can also serve as a visual clue to find the location.

  • Audio File: For even deeper immersion, you have the option to record an audio file associated with the stage. This audio file can contain additional clues, ambient sounds, or even narration to add a sonic dimension to the experience.

By following these simple steps, you'll be able to create stages that will guide your participants through their treasure hunt adventure. Don't forget to leave room for your creativity and customize each stage to make the experience even more memorable.

3. Define Your Courses

Courses determine the order of the stages. Create multiple courses to vary the experience. Participants can have the same course or different ones, depending on the complexity you desire. Ensure that each course is balanced in terms of difficulty.

4. Gather Your Supplies

Prepare all the necessary elements, such as maps, accessories, and hidden treasures. Ensure that everything is in order for a smooth experience.

5. Test the Courses

Before the official launch, test each course to ensure they function correctly.

6. Easily Invite Participants

Inviting participants is a breeze with QR codes generated by the app. No need to create an account—just scan the code to join the team.

7. Explain the Rules

Gather participants and quickly explain the rules of the game for a hassle-free experience.

8. Launch and Capture Moments

Launch the teams and encourage them to capture memorable moments throughout the game.

9. Triumph at the Finish Line

When teams reach the finish line, the app automatically records their times and ranks them. You can also check the progress of teams still in action. It's time to celebrate their achievements.
