Step 1: Plan your event
Put yourself in your player's shoes and think about their journey, from the very beginning up until the very last challenge they complete. Ask yourself the following questions:
How do I distribute the game to my players?
What does the game look like?
Do I want players to register, or should I pre-register them?
Am I setting up teams, or are players participating as individuals?
What type of Challenges will they enjoy?
What will they earn for participating?
As you write the answers to these questions, you'll find out how you want the game to be played by your attendees. These answers will help you easily set up your game.
Step 2: Add Challenges
Challenges will give players points and rewards. There are multiple options to choose from, here's a list as well as detailed instructions on how to add them:
