Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
- First, download GooseChase on iOS or Android.
- Sign in as a guest or create an account.
- Enter game code R7419E or search WashCo Earth Month.
- Get started on your missions!
Each mission will have a task and a specific way to submit that mission for points; text, photo, video or GPS/location check-in. For example, a mission might be to take a picture of an item you found in your recycling bin that should have gone in the garbage and post it to the app. All missions are voluntary, and you can choose which ones you want try! You must submit missions to earn points, which are awarded based on the difficulty of the mission. All players who submit at least one mission will be eligible for a prize raffle; some prizes may be specific to players who complete a particular mission.
Unless stated in the mission description, submissions will be public for other players to view. All submissions that require a GPS location or sensitive participant information for prize drawings such as a mailing address will automatically be private and will only be used to award points or prizes.
