Seoul Scavenger Hunt

Seoulatious Photo Scavenger Hunt
06/16/2012 @ 서울 [Seoul]

The rules were simple, we had a team of four people and four hours to find and do as many things on a massive list as possible. Only one camera was allowed per team. Sadly, the turnout wasn't terribly great, but we were able to play as two teams. For our team, we made an unofficial rule that a team member needed to be in every single photo. It was really exhausting, but it was satisfying to be the victors by four points. It was close. Here is our collection with clue captions; there are a ton of photos!

Untitled
( Propose to a stranger: +2 points )

Silliness photos/videos were worth two points. Some of the other objectives were Pole Dance for 2 Minutes, Team Jump Photo, Drinking on Public Transit, & Starting Group Chants on Public Transit.

There was a set of items on the list called "Judges Choice." We had to photograph what we found was the best, and it was voted on for an extra three points at the end.

There was also a group of things that you could take many photos of, for one point each. This list included Any Subway Exit 4s, Haechi Statues, Burger Kings, Family Marts with Chairs outside, Post Offices & Cafe Benes.
