Smartphone Scavenger Hunt (Sunday, 21 Oct. 4-7pm) (Madrid)

Hola Internation-als! Please JOIN me and my friends for this scavenger hunt organised by my friends' start-up companies!:

What do you get when you combine the mystery of “The Da Vinci Code”, the competition of “The Amazing Race”, and the fun of “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?” into one smartphone app and group activity?

Join me and my friends for this first-of-its-kind "Smartphone Scavenger Hunt" and find out! An up-and-coming mobile game company is organising an urban adventure that will get you on your feet – while still allowing you to interact with a device that very few of us can live without! The night before the scavenger hunt, we tell you what SMARTPHONE APP to download for FREE, you show up at our secret location in central Madrid and then you’re off on a two-hour scavenger hunt that will have you:

- Interact with virtual characters, including prominent figures from Spanish history,
- Physically follow a storyline,
- Learn historical facts,
- Solve riddles and
- View some of Madrid’s famous sites from an entirely different perspective!

The scavenger hunt ends in the same place: A relaxing meeting point where everyone can chill out and hang out! FIRST TEN people who finish the race will receive FREE drinks care of the mobile game app developer! We will also have FREE give-aways for those who complete quirky challenges and a GRAND PRIZE of a free segway tour, canyoning or a day hike expedition (a €75 value)!
