Remote team building: online scavenger/treasure hunt (without the bullshit)

This post exists because I spent the last 30 minutes trying to find a post that only teaches you to play scavenger hunt online for remote team building, without the 30 paragraphs of bullshit no one is interested in.

  1. Pick a letter or theme
  2. Give everybody a couple minutes to find as many items starting with that letter or corresponding to the theme as possible
  3. Go through each person's items, each unique item (that the person has but nobody else has it) gives them a point
  4. The person with the most points wins

Isn't a large reason why people include the bs in many posts because google and other indexers rate those posts very highly? I agree with you, however! No one wants to read random stories when they want the real meat.

Thanks for this post!

P.s. how could you "rate" how unique an item is? In an objective manner as possible.

Thx for the comment! I never thought about the ranking thing. What I meant with unique is that nobody else has it. So for example if I have a coffee mug and nobody else has it, that's a unique item and I get a point for it. The person with the most points wins.
