    I find this year's task list to be pretty ridiculous. There's not even many things that you can do for fun, just gritty hard work. Full color pictures, full site collections and a novel with another team, drawing over 3000 pets on one canvas.

    @cpvr - I have no idea, but probably not. They've had "program" tasks before and nothing ever came out of it, even though some of the end results were neat.

    I thought scavenger hunts were where you had to figure out riddles, and bring back all the items:huh: This is like a task list of skilled stuff, or location based stuff :huh:

    Yeah good thing I'm not taking part in it. OMFG those tasks. I don't believe it. You know some zoos don't have 50 animals that would match the colorations. Insane.

    The points determine the team's placing.

    Last year's Scavenger Hunt had 300 tasks but you could have up to 20 people on your team. The numbers are lower this year but the tasks are a lot more difficult.

    Just wondering - did anyone actually create any games for the Scavenger hunt? I didn't see anything about it in the news, and if Aywas was going to use them on their site or not. @Kiara @Lyrakish

    Team 1337 and Team Caps Lock (Kiara's team) made a game for Scav. It's highly likely the other high-ranked teams also made a game but I don't know.
