How do you play the hunt?
Select a hunt that's in your area. Each hunt has a check in location, the starting point of the hunt.
Once you arrive at the start point and check in, you will get your first clue.
You need to figure out where to go and check in at that location. If you arrived at the right place you'll get a task and take a picture before getting the clue for the next location.

Trial Mode:
You can fully play featured hunts in trial mode without any limitations. 
If you want to play other hunts (including hunts you created) you'll need to purchase the app.

Please contact us at if you're experiencing any issues or have any questions or suggestions and follow us on twitter (@PlayTheHunt) for updates on new hunts and creating your own hunts

• Accept invites for unlisted hunts
• Added support for QR Code task
• Added support for race hunts
• Added new menu to the start screen panorama
• Updated My History in start screen panorama
• Setting to upload photos only on WiFi

    It looks like a really cool app but it only has hunts for Washington DC, Silicon Valley, New York City, and San Francisco.

    Created my own hunt on their web site and played with my HTC 8X. Very nice, could use more mini games

    Doesn't work if you dont live or vacation in a popular city. Waste of money because of the severe lack of hunts. There's maybe 4 total at any given time . Leaves one with a sense of being cheated. Do not waste even a penny on this app let alone 3 dollars.

    Great app. Went on a hunt in NYC with my 10 y/o who usually gets boted on trips like this and he had a lot of fun. Could use more mini games and more hunts
