Event Format

Before you begin the activity, everyone will have the chance to download the bespoke game app on their smartphone devices. Then, if you’ve opted for a remote facilitator, they will give a brief explanation on how the day will run before you split up into smaller teams of 4-6 people.

When the activity begins, each team will get to use the interactive map to find and head to the first hotspot in the area. Here, you will be issued with trivia questions and exciting photo/video challenges where you’ll need to bring out your teamwork and problem-solving skills in order to score the maximum points on offer.

The app includes a live scoreboard and a chat room so you can communicate between teams. By the end of the experience, the team with the highest score on the leaderboard will be named the winners of the day.

What group sizes is the Smartphone Pub Treasure Hunt ideal for?

The smartphone pub treasure hunt us a truly flexible activity, meaning it’s ideal for nearly all group sizes. We’ve hosted these events for groups as small as 6 and companies as large as 250 participants.

What are the benefits of the Smartphone Pub Explorer?

This format of activity is beneficial for companies who want a light-hearted, informal activity that will take their staff out of the office. The friendly competition alongside a bit of fresh air is a simple yet effective way to motivate as many employees as you need. The general knowledge questions and fun challenges are tried and tested to influence team bonding as each group works towards one goal.

Extra Info

The App is designed for Android phones and tablets, the iPhone and the iPad. It will not work on Windows phones or Blackberry.

There are also minimum versions of the operating system that are required for the App so if you can't see it in the store it probably means your phone isn't compatible.

The minimum device system requirements are as follows…

  • iOS Version 10.0 and above,
  • Android Version 4.4 and above,
  • Whatever phone or tablet you use, it will also need a data plan, a compass and have GPS activated.
  • A fully charged smartphone will be required per team.

Whilst the App will normally work on other unrecommended Android & iOS devices, there may be times where users experience issues with certain areas such as poor battery life, GPS signal or small issues in the game. In particular, you may have issues if running the App on an old phone.

The GE team had a great time doing the Smartphone Treasure Hunt, it was a great way to see a city!

We would definitely love to do something similar again.

The event ran really well last night and thankfully the weather remained on our side for the Glasgow areas anyway.

Everyone had a great night and for next years events, we will definitely consider doing this again with Funktion Events.

Just wanted to say thank you for organising the event for us – the ‘Pub Treasure Hunt’ was fantastic, we didn’t manage to get to the end as the weather was so bad, but we gave it our best shot and had lots of fun!

We will definitely be doing this again

Event went really well and the team all enjoyed the hunt round Reading! The teams really got into the challenges and some of the videos I have seen were hilarious! Including our apprentice playing Simba in a lion king reenactment!

Everything went really well, we had a very fun time.

The only issue we had, was a team of 4 but none of them were able to play. They all had the app on their phone and they could see some questions, but all 4 phones wouldn’t let them answer. There was no option to type etc.

However, all other teams had fun

We have enjoyed the experience very much. We haven’t managed to complete all challenges as it was taking a little bit too long, but we have very much enjoyed the teamwork.
