How to use Goosechase
Once you login to the Goosechase app on your device, the first thing to do is join a game. Just search for the name of the game or enter the specific game code within the app.
To complete a mission, select it from the list and follow the instructions to receive the allotted points. Sometimes you’ll be submitting a photo or video, while other times, you’ll be checking-in at a specific location or solving a puzzle or riddle. Missions change from game to game, but the fun and excitement will always be there. Remember that while you receive the points right away, all submissions are subject to review by the organizer.
The ability to see everything as it happens is one of the best parts of GooseChase. That’s because whenever someone completes a mission, it’s added to the activity feed, and the rankings are automatically updated.
When time runs out, the game may be done, but the fun is not over. That's because organizers still need to announce the final scores after they review the submissions. It's why you should always push hard until the very end because you don't know if the teams ahead of you will have taken any shortcuts!
