    oh! found a cross platform app... checking it out now

    EDIT: its called Scavify... not nearly as good as the apple apps i found, but it is a lot more polished i guess... BUT over 5 people/event and its $500!!! wtf... i guess us organizers could all create the same event and have it password protected so each event has 5 teams assigned to it... it also doesnt seem to let you combine a checkin with a question to unlock the next location... the hunt continues but i think we can use an app for sure

    I am in favor of an app, must be something out there we can use
    gps quiz is pretty awesome... besides being able to skip check points... but apple only, the whole cross platform thing is not easy

    scavify kinda sucks but i think we can work around it, it would be nice though to have questions and locations as mandatory... but on the somewhat more low-tech side of things we could print out some QR codes and stick them in different areas each one would have the address of the next location?

    well, i cant find an app that fits the bill... and doesnt cost stupid money to run an event... so here is my idea:

    QR codes pasted around the city... tons of free apps for all phones to read them

    QR codes will link to a web page like so: http://bydpkrrun.blogspot.ca/p/blog-page.html

    answer correct and you get coordinates to the next location, i will change the page names from "question1", "answer1", etc to random shit so there will be no haxoring... last coordinates will lead to the meet up location where we can figure out the cards/whatever

    so basically for setup we'd need locations figured out, questions about those locations

    then print out some QR codes that match the URLs and stick them at the coordinates, boom, done

    the MOST fun way to find locations would be to download a geocache app that just gives you an arrow tot he direction of the QR... but really you can plug them into anything to get an idea of where to go, might still need one of those apps to pinpoint the QR as it wont be big

    that work for everyone? if so the planning committee should get some questions and locations worked out

    EDIT: im bored so i played around with it a bit... think it makes sense to have different start locations based on where people live... same stops but more of a choose your own adventure sort of thing, each quadrant works its way towards the final location vs running randomly around the city... also will give less traffic all at once since people will be staggered more.

    The QR code idea is quite innovative: like it.

    Just for interest sake:

    i have a buddy who could MAYBE design an app... but i think thats a lot to ask haha

    rather have the funds go towards the pot than to some sort of app

    got a way to track though, google forms:

    so when you get the right answer you'd see this page (with coordinates), then on the back end it would fill in this sheet... where we can either confirm or randomly generate "cards"... issue being is that it is a true random, so the same cards could come up twice... but if you have enough people you end up with multiple decks anyways and ridiculous hands... so not that big of a deal

    Hahaha, no more complex than custom lisp nonsense... But yeah I could setup a quick little route in town and print the qr codes, hell lets just do that with the final stop at a quiet pub and we can't hash out the actual route and any changes we need with whoever shows up?

    It would be cool if I was in town for this, or at least some sort of summer cruise.

    well its basically all together, just need to get the QR codes to the locations and record the coordinates. so either we can actually do the full run or we can meet up and virtually do it? its just a simple inner city loop, maybe an hour worth of driving... im cool either way. just let me know what day works for you guys

    I am interested in this if it is still happening (obviously not Apr 2nd!).
    I think you are overthinking things as far as apps go.
    How about getting one card to start along with the clues for the other four locations (one being the final destination) and having everyone take a selfie of themselves at each location to get a card.
    In case of a tie the first one to arrive at the final destination is the tie breaker.

    It's just a QR code at each stop linked to an already built webpage....


    But yeah I'm free till may 12th then not till June, so any time before or after works for me
