Students' gateway to Campus

Goosechase Scavenger Hunt

Goosechase is coming to your campus!

For your chance to win an iPad Mini, it's time to grab a friend, come to the Students Services Carnival and go on a free Goosechase around campus!

Goosechase hunts will be running on the following times and locations. Each Goosechase will go live at 11am on the day of the Carnival, but remember that you must attend Carnival to complete most of the missions.

Campus Day Time Location
Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus
Tuesday 26 March 12noon-2pm Union Green
Melbourne Burwood Campus Wednesday 27 March 12noon-2.30pm Mutant Way
Geelong Waterfront Campus Thursday 28 March

Once your team of two is organised, email Deakin's Goosechase team with your team name as well as the names and student ID numbers of both of your team members. This task will also be a mission in the game, so make sure you complete it for the points.

Getting started

  1. Download the 'Goosechase' app onto your mobile phone. This is available from the Apple + Android app stores. Both team members can have the app on their phones if you want, or you can install it onto just one phone.
  2. Nominate one person to sign into the app using an email account or your Facebook account. Only one account per team please.
  3. Create a profile (choose a team name for your user name). Make sure you email the team name, as well as the names and student ID numbers of both team members.
  4. Search for your campus game to join. Choose from:
    • Deakin Burwood
    • Deakin Waurn Ponds
    • Deakin Waterfront
    • Deakin Warrnambool

Playing the game - its pretty easy!

  • Choose a mission
  • Take a photo as proof you've completed the task.
  • You get points (+bonus points in some cases) for each photo you upload.
  • The team with the most points will be the winner. In the event of a tie, all teams with the highest score will be entered in a draw and one winning team will be drawn.
