[Interest Check] PAX '08 Scavenger Hunt

Announcing Proof of Concept for the Venture Brothers Scavenger Hunt at PAX '08.

Do you:

Have a digital camera?
Enjoy awkward tasks involving nervous nonparticipants?
Routinely take perilous risks for little to no reward?


Then the Venture Brothers Scavenger Hunt is right up your alley!

This post is to gauge what sort of interest a good old fashioned scavenger hunt at next year's PAX would generate. Yes, I am well aware that it is a year away, but strokes of genius cannot not be timed in mere mortal calenders.

Participants would be given a list of approximately 50 tasks to accomplish during the show, encompassing all events over the weekend, with a digital camera as the witness for the inevitable shenanigans.

This sound at all like something you might possibly consider participating in?

Addendum: To help whet your appetite, the first task could possibly be "Participate in the Scavenger Hunt dressed like a Zombie."

    Yes.

    Except. I was interested until the zombie part. I'll do crazy stuff and takes pics of it or whatever, but buying stuff in order to dress up is a no-go.

    It's a good idea, but I think I'd rather have it be hosted by PAX... But I'm interested.

    I think it sounds amazing..
    But I also think you should get like.. points for completing the tasks that you DO accomplish, and then other tasks that are optional (like.. a picture of yourself with Khoo being a "little teapot," or something that would take persuasion), and.. accumulate points.

    Oh, do not be fooled, the list will be made up entirely of optional tasks of varying point totals. Otherwise, how could you have a winner?

    Also, Zombie face paint is so expensive. :|

    I actually remarked to my bf on Friday afternoon that there should be a PAX scavenger hunt. One item I thought of was a picture with someone wearing a Homestar Runner t-shirt. (Penny Arcade is too easy) You could also have say, pic of 3 cosplayers (double points if in a human pyramid).

    Stuff that's interactive, fun, and requires you to either attend a wide range of events/areas (you can't camp and win basically) and meet various PAXers.

    Cell phone cameras should count.

    I have begun formulating a rough list of tasks, some that may require going outside of the convention to accomplish. I am also taking suggestions via PM.

    ok, first, FUCK YES! a scavenger hunt was severely missing from 07. but it should be official, and there should be prizes. i still have the scavenger hunt list from 06 (i know, i'm a fucking packrat), so if you want to see that for ideas, i could scan it.

    however, i'm not tooo crazy fond of the dress up idea, only because i'm currently hard at work on a cts costume. although, i could pull what that jill valentine chick did and go zombie cts, maybe.

    [edit]btw, i know about the sony scav hunt, but it was really lame. i got 8 keys and none of them unlocked the chest, i just got that gay ass tshirt.
