I am running a year long event with GooseChase with new monthly missions every month (usually 12-15 new missions). It would be great if you could archive old missions without team members losing their points. As we are now on the 9th month and it makes for a very large list of missions I need to scroll through as the creator. Every month I have to click and drag new missions up to the top and in the order I need. Maybe there is an easier way I am unaware of? Or maybe something to update in the future.
Motivating experience participation
I think a lot of new creators would say that the hardest part of building out your first Goosechase experience is… actually building out the experience. And not to take anything away from those struggles, but thankfully that learning curve isn’t too big AND once you’ve got it figured out… you’re flying!The real struggle is… once you have your masterpiece built, what then? What’s the point of having this great experience if no one knows about it?So my question is… What are your top 3 ways to motivate people to participate in your Experiences? This can be from a promotion of your experience, communication, education, etc.
Looking for a Faith based Scavenger hunt
Hello! I am new to Goosechase. I have done some searching on the site but have not found what I am looking for. I am looking for a mission/scavenger hunt for High School aged youth that is Christian based, but not bible centered (i.e. related to finding bible verses). We are having our first offsite retreat since COVID (yay!) and would like to try this outdoors with them using their phones. Any help or direction would be appreciated!
5 things Geese can teach us about teamwork
So for an event planned for Xmas, we had a rail-strike announced late which meant we had to move the date. With nearly 100 people signed up to play, it was a bit of a disappointment though we didn’t want hold the event where many who wanted to come wouldn’t be able to. To cheer everyone up, I summarised the 5 things Geese can teach us about teamwork!You’ve possibly read these before, but maybe not in such a short list. Everyone loved it & our event in late January was an outstanding success.So sharing if you’d like to re-use!Geese Fly Further Together - The Flying V means each bird, as it flaps its wings, is creating lift for their fellow birds, allowing them to fly further with less effort. Geese Support Each Other When Times are Tough: When a goose gets injured, two others fall out of formation to stay with the goose until it is able to fly again. Geese Take Turns Leading: Due to the lift created in the V formation, there is no one creating lift for the front goose. This leaders
Using AI to help with Mission Ideas
With all the buzz around AI and ChatGPT the past few months, I wanted to see if AI could help create Mission ideas. Nothing beats the carefully curated Missions of a Goosechase creator who really knows their audience, but sometimes that creativity block is real and you need a little help. (Am I right?) Turns out, AI can be surprisingly pretty helpful.Check this out… Read more about my ChatGPT test here → Has anyone else run any cool tests with AI yet?
Advice for Icebreaker Activities
A lot of you may be using Goosechase to break the ice. We did a really interesting Q&A with Social Psychologists last year who used Goosechase in a study about talking to strangers...here’s their top advice for getting strangers to talk to each other: Give people a clear objective: It might sound like the opposite of fun, but it isn’t! Giving folks clear direction (“Approach someone in your favorite color”, “Talk to someone about what you had for breakfast this morning”) and they’ll be more empowered to talk to others. Lead by example: It may seem simple, because it is - talk to people first! If you’re hosting the activity, get the conversation started yourself!For tips 3&4, read more here: https://blog.goosechase.com/advice-for-hosting-icebreakers/
Luck of the Irish!
I love using seasons or holidays for inspiration and motivation to engage learners of all ages in some play, learning and fun!The weather is warming with February here and the month of March is just around the corner! As the flock begins to look for signs of green and spring, here is a game that will have participants doing a jig!https://gsch.se/game/539c51891a82436f9cfa6a3da89cdfa0/copy/
When January arrives, thoughts turn to spring and summer race season. This weekend I was in full training -mode with a 24 mile bike (on the trainer because it is well below zero) and a mile swim on Saturday, then a run on Sunday.Trying to squeeze in exercise and healthy choices can be hard when you are busy taking care of work, family and the nest!I have enlisted the fun competition of Goosechase to inspire and motivate conference participants to making healthy choices… https://gsch.se/game/1ae6a851169e4529a216a0058a10972a/copy/Any other ideas from the flock for healthy eggs of inspiration?
The Vendor Social
Vendors sponsor a conference for exposure. I have enlisted Goosechase to get attendees to flock to vendor booths and interact with the vendors that are helping make our conference a success. It is so much fun to see the vendors and participants interact to complete missions. We also got creative in our mission titles and tasks so that the vendor and/or company name was included. And, the winner got the Vendor Social grand prize (donated by the vendors). Past prizes have included drones, Alexa, Swivl, and a Chromebook! Not bad for a bunch of fun!

GooseChase as a Road Rally
I just wanted to take a minute and share my Goosechase experience and how our school has benefitted from it.Each year my wife and I create a Road Rally through GC as part of a fundraising effort for the PTA at our children’s school while another team of volunteers works to secure physical donations (which are auctioned off as a more traditional part of the fundraiser, this will be relevant later 😉). To participate in the Road Rally, each student pays an entrance fee and receives the access code for our Road Rally Experience and that year’s custom shirt (or other branded swag) which businesses can also sponsor.As items come in we maintain a list of donor businesses which we use to create clues in our Experience along with some school related text missions and local points of interest/historical sites. The donation team is able to use the fact that there are going to be clues leading people to their doorstep when approaching a business for a donation which can help us get some nice item
