When starting to build your Experience, it can be a bit daunting staring at the empty Mission list. Many questions may be running through your mind, like:“What kinds of missions should I include?”“How many Missions will I need?”“Should I just have all the Missions available at once?”To make this a bit easier, I’ve broken down the top 3 things to consider before creating your Missions:________________The GoalWhat do you want to achieve with your Missions? Are you wanting to teach your participants something? Do you want them to display teamwork? This can be a good north star when starting to think of what types of missions to create. From there, you can determine the type of Missions that may be the best fit. For example: Text Missions are great for testing knowledge, or sharing personal stories. GPS Missions are amazing for facilitating exploration and discovery. Photo/Video Missions drive the most engagement. They are perfect for displaying creativity and building connections.
Hi Everyone,We at Team Dynamics IL. have been working with Goosechase since 2014. Back then, there were only photo missions available.Over the years, we developed a way to use Goosechase to create extra value for our customers.This is our most powerful tip: (at the end of this post you can find an example game that you can try to see how it works). Before every Team Building activity, we create a For-Play game. This game is open 3-5 days before the main event. Initially, we made this experience for large groups. We knew that explaining the technical features and the game instructions was tough before we sent people on their way.The benefit of doing this was so great that we made it a standard procedure: When you meet the players on the event day, most of them know how to play, so they don’t get frustrated if they lose points because of technical issues. At least one team member already has the app installed, but they also know how to install and connect to a game. The pre-game creates
I have lead some fun and engaging games for conferences and multi-day events! Sometimes it’s hard to juggle all those goose eggs without dropping one!My tip and trick is to plan the game out using a spreadsheet. I organize and color code my missions by date to release ( and sometimes sub- categorize by time). Then I make sure to indicate what type of mission it is, number of points the title and description, any related links and if needed correct answers. This way I have the missions at my feather tips and I can copy and paste them into the game quicker than a goose in flight.Hope this little tip and trick is found to be a helpful honk!What is your tip and trick?
I have so many helpful honks to share! Here’s a collection of my favourites, in no particular order 🧡Video testimonials: Leverage the power of video Missions to collect testimonials from your participants to help market your future Experiences! Video testimonials are a fantastic way to showcase just how much fun everyone had in your Experience. Be sure to add a custom terms of service, like your photo waiver consent form, so that you can use the content for your marketing purposes. Share to social: Have an awesome event that you want to spread the word about? Have your participants share to social! This is a great way to organically market your Experience. Code words: Use accepted answers in text Missions to set a code word. There are SO many fun ways to incorporate code words into your Experience! Are you linking a survey (eg. Typeform, Google Forms, SurveyMonkey, Paperform, etc) in a Mission to capture your participants’ contact info? If so, you might find that your challenge
My wife and I have been using GooseChase to create an annual experience for our local PTA for the last few years. Each year we make some adjustments based on our results the previous year and each year we have new families who are going to be having their first GooseChase experience.We try to run a scaled down but representative experience a couple of weeks before the actual one to give our families a chance to become familiar with the app as well as give us a chance to see if our changes actually make sense (like having missions be photo submissions so we can make sure teams aren’t splitting up).We’ve found this kind of practice run to really be worth it in the end.
