East Wind Hunt –King Boreas appointed Euros the King of the East Wind and as such he has come to represent the mysteries and ancient knowledge of the East. As such, his hunt will challenge you like no other. In this hunt your quest begins with 11 puzzles that are not for the faint of heart. They may employ codes, ciphers, or visual trickery that will take a keen mind to unravel. The one thing that they all have in common is they they will each direct you to a location in St. Paul. There you will confirm your location with the Goosechase app to complete the mission as well as glean a piece of information which will give you a clue to solving the 12th and final puzzle.
The winning team, with the highest score will get a $500 prize, if you have a 2023 Saint Paul Winter Carnival button courtesy of our Presenting Sponsor, Priority Courier Experts! Each team can have as many members as you would like to split the prize with, but only one person per team can register in the app. The missions will be available to your team leader through the app, and we will also email an electronic copy that the team can share.
The hunt begins at 9am on Saturday, January 28th and will end Sunday, February 5th at 6pm so your team will have until then to finish. Each mission accomplished will be worth 500 points. However, you can earn up to 250 bonus points the faster you complete the mission. You can also earn another 250 points per mission by completing the missions in order. In the end, the team with the highest point total will win the prize (ties will go to the first team to complete all the missions). But even if you don’t get the top prize, you’ll still get to enjoy the experience and the satisfaction of solving all the puzzles!
