Stickybits Scavenger Hunt
Some of you may recall my affinity for scavenger hunts. Others may even recall my short foray into the scavenger hunt business. Regardless of how well your grey matter is operating, when I learned about the new iPhone app, Stickybits, I knew I could make something fun out of it.
The premise behind Stickybits is that you can use the free application to scan barcodes and then attach information to these scans via the Stickybits server. The possibilities are far and wide, so I’ll probably write another post about it sometime in the future. For now, let’s get down to scavenger hunt business.
This hunt features books and magazines exclusively. These barcodes will be consistent throughout the country, so that means that everyone can play. Yay!
One quick note though, booksellers sometimes place their own barcodes over the publishers barcode. Make sure you scan the PUBLISHER’S barcode.
How to Play
- Download the Stickybits app to either your iPhone or Android device.
- Figure out the first clue below.
- Find the appropriate book and then scan its barcode.
- Look for the bits attached by me (DPWalsh) and find clues to the next barcode to scan.
It’s a pretty quick hunt, and if you do it all in a bookstore it shouldn’t take more than 15-30 minutes.
