Here we will guide and help you learn more about how hoodhunt works.
To participate in the hunt you will need to purchase a hunt ticket. Hunt tickets can be bought on our website here. Once payment has been received, you will receive an email confirming your entry into the hunt. You will receive your clues on the official start date. Once you receive your clues, you will need to use them to figure out where the prize is hidden. You will need to go out into the hunt area and find the hidden prize. If you are the lucky hoodhunter to find the prize, you will need to email us with the secret code that is located in the hidden prize and your ticket number to claim your winnings.
Note: The hunt is an individual activity that you do once you have solved the clues, whether that takes you an hour or a day to find where you need to go. You will need to use the clue to lead you to the right place in the hunt area.
Yes you can! The hunt for the final prize is open to anyone with a valid entry.
The hunt begins on the 5th February 2022 at 8am.
It is completely up to you whether you work as an individual or as a team. Please note that, if you decide to work as a team, prize money will only be given to one ticket holder and it is up to you how to split it between your team.
If you need to purchase a ticket on behalf of someone else, as a gift or a favour, you will need to check out for them separately with their email address instead of your own. Each order is linked to an email address and we will be sending the clues and all essential communications to that registered address.
This depends on how long it takes for someone to find the prize.
The hunt will end as soon as the prize is found and we have been contacted. We will then verify that the winning prize has been found and then notify all hoodhunters taking part.
We plan our clues so that it will not last longer than the weekend. The clues could be solved by a very quick witted team in a few hours but don't expect this to be easy. We will also release additional hints through-out the weekend to help teams close in on the prize.
As soon as we have confirmed that someone has found the prize, we will email all participants as well as advertise this on our social media accounts.
The hunt is an individual activity that you do once you have solved the clues, whether that takes you a day or a few weeks. It is not an event that you attend on a specific day. This makes our hunt a safe activity to do during covid.
Clues will be emailed to the email address provided by you.
Please remember to check your spam/promotions folder as sometimes emails may end up there. Be sure to mark our emails as "not spam", and/or add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contacts list to make sure our emails aren't missed.
During the hunt we may also be publishing some additional hints to help our participants along the way. We will always provide information about what time these additional hints will be sent out so that you can plan accordingly.
You will receive your clues on the 5th February 2022 at 8am.
If we deem it necessary to hand out additional clues, this will only be done on a designated date and time. This will be made known to you well in advance. We will never send out clues without your advanced knowledge as this could create an unfair advantage for some participants.
You will need to have a keen mind and be open to thinking about things from different perspectives.
We also advise that you will find it incredibly useful to have access to the internet while solving the clues so that you can review maps of the hint area and look up references we may make to locations in the hint area.
