FrogQuest is a high-energy game, putting adventurous, costume-clad teams in competition with each other to capture daring, interactive photo quests on their smartphones. Each team is given the same list of quests, and each quest is worth a varying amount of points based on difficulty, daring, and whimsy. High score wins!

Quests might have you mummifying a teammate with toilet paper, dressing up exactly like a mannequin, or getting into a thumb war with a cop...then capture photo evidence to prove you did it!

Any large group of people who want to spend time playing together! Doesn't matter Whether everyone knows each other beforehand or not, because they certainly will by the end. That's why this is great as a team building! But, it's also a great way for families and friends to spend an afternoon at a family reunion, bachelorette party, birthday party, etc.

We customize each hunt, so we can dial things up for an "adults only" sort of thing, or dial it way down and keep it very PG to make it work for a teenager's birthday party. And of course, we can do anything in between!

We've seen groups both small and large, but as a rule we recommend having at least 12 (3 teams) to make it fun. Larger groups of 100-200+ people work even better. This really is a "more the merrier" kind of thing!

Frogquest game day v2

The gameday will basically go like this...

  1. You and your teammates show up (in costume, right?) to the mutually agreed upon starting point, check in with our coordinator, then take a team photo with your smartphone.

  2. Our event coordinator will hand out sealed envelope containing the same list of top-secret photo quests to each team. Once we start, open the envelope, quickly strategize, then HOP TO IT! You'll email us the evidence as you complete each quest to an event-specific email address!

  3. After hunting, return to the starting point (usually 2.5 hours later) for food, drink, and a curated photo slideshow. This is at least 50% of the fun!
  1. Some quests require your entire team be in the photo, so you'll need to ask rely on the photographic skills of strangers.
  2. Some quests require strangers be in the photo, but each team can use each stranger only one time.
  3. Teams should get all team members in front of the camera as much as possible.
  4. Teams should email their photo evidence as they go so we can organize, validate, and score them in real time, making sure to have the curated photo slide show ready to go when you return.
  5. Each team may submit only one photo per quest. However, if that photo is returned for not meeting the criteria or you think you've outdone your first try, you may submit again.
  6. Only one photo may be attached to each email.
  7. You cannot complete multiple quests with a single photo
  8. Teams may use whatever means of transportation available to them, though we highly encourage self-propelled methods over motorized.
  9. Teams cannot be larger than 6 members.
  10. We will deduct points or reject submissions if you make the quest easier than intended (by pulling images off the internet for instance). We do however encourage creativity!
  11. All scoring decisions by our judges are final. Bonus points could be awarded based on any of the following criteria:
    • Originality
    • Creativity
    • Level of effort
    • How well you met the criteria
    • How awestruck we are
    • Framing/Composition (not *just* a snapshot)
    • Whether we involuntarily laugh
    • Whether we involuntarily shout expletives (WOW!)
  12. You are NOT required to complete all quests on the list. If you don't feel you can complete a quest safely, legally, and/or without damaging private property, skip it! We want you to have fun, not go to jail or get hurt.

All our events are private, so you should receive a registration link from the person organizing the event for your group. If you'd like to create an event, your first step is to...

Our home base is San Diego CA and Portland OR, but we'll go anywhere! And anyplace where a lot of people hang out is generally a great location for a hunt!

All our events are private, so we'll work with you and your group to find a time/date that works for us both.

We're flexible and can shorten or extend as needed, but we generally alot 2.5 hours for the hunt itself, then another half hour for the slideshow. However, with setup and wind down time, the entire event takes at most 4 hours from beginning to end.

Typically, we start and end at the same location, which you should find at the top of your private registration page and has been included in your registration confirmation email. If you can't find either, contact us and we'll help sort it out.

At the end of every hunt, we'll have a photo slideshow instantly ready to go. This curated slideshow will consist of the best photos taken across all teams, streamed off the internet (here's a sample slideshow). For smaller events, the slideshow may include every single submission. For larger events, we're more selective. Our goal is to keep the slideshow to 20 minutes (give or take). Without a doubt, this is one of the best parts of each event and is not to be missed.

Dress comfortably. You'll be walking, skipping, jumping and running. Be prepared! You may find yourself in a food fight, burried in sand or wet... anything can happen!

No, but they're highly encouraged! And dare we say, you'll have more fun if you get into the spirit by (at least) wearing matching shirts, hats, wigs, etc. Or go all out and organize matching themed costumes. Somewhere in the middle is fine too. Point is to show your solidarity and esprit de corps through what you wear! Besides, it can be very intimidating to your opponents.

There are several benefits. First, teams that dress together have more fun together. Seriously! People around you will see your group and become naturally curious, and they'll want to become part of the fun. This is helpful when your quests require getting strangers involved, earning you more points. Also, as part of a larger group, each individual is more likely to feel comfortable stepping outside their comfort zone because there's a natural safety in numbers. Standing out as a group gives everyone license to loosen up that little extra bit that makes a difference, bringing the entire team together in really fun, cool ways. And finally, the photos you take will all look way better in the end and will probably earn more bonus points as well.

Color is a really easy way to accomplish this, so having everyone dress in the same (or similar) color scheme works really well. But don't stop there. Besides color themed shirts/hats/wigs/bandanas, add personality to your team by giving everyone matching Groucho Marx Glasses, Mustaches, Clown Noses, Jumbo Sunglasses, etc. Find that thing which expresses your team's personality. Or go all out and dress everyone as superheros, rock stars, bank robbers, or why not frogs? Just say'n! Have fun with it!

First and foremost, bring a fully charged smartphone, at least one per team but preferably 2 or 3 or more just in case of malfunction, poor reception, dead batteries, etc. You might also want to bring water, energy bars and cash (for food, beverages, etc).

Yes! At least one active, web-enabled smartphone is required per team. You'll use your smartphone to document that you completed each photo quest, then email that photo to our judges to be validated and scored. This is the key to keeping things well organized and fun.

By email. When you complete a photo quest, you'll use your web-enabled smartphone to email the photo evidence to our judges in real time, one email with one photo attachment per quest. The event-specific email address will be provided to you at the time of the event.

Each photo quest is worth a varying base number of points based on factors such as difficulty, risk, scarcity, etc. Bonus points opportunities are sometimes offered for stepping it up a notch, which will make the quest even more difficult. In addition, bonus points may be awarded at the judge's discretion for such factors as originality, creativity, how well you meet the criteria, how awe struck they are, framing/composition (not *just* a snapshot), involuntary laughter, involuntary expletives (Wow!), etc. With every photo taken, take it well! Be creative! It just might make all the difference. Our mantra is...NO LAME PICS!!!

Don't worry, most of the photo quests are not location dependent and can be done most anywhere, so you can either keep moving forward and hope you'll find another opportunity to complete that quest, or go back. The choice is yours, depending on the quest and how badly you want those points.

At the after party. Because each team will be emailing their photos to our judges as they take them, the judges will keep a running tabulation of the results.

Maybe, though the prizes are not our focus nor should they be yours. Our focus is to provide you with a fun and memorable social experience, which is reward in itself. But we will award prizes to the winning team(s).

Yes, each registered player will be able to download their event photos. You can choose to download just those included in the slideshow, or download all of them. You do this by logging in to your account and clicking the 'Past Events' tab.

There are essentially three types of quests.

  • Those that involve your entire team...
    Example: entire team in front of a sign that is intentionally or unintentionally funny.
  • Those that involve teammates...
    Example: completely mummify a teammate in toilet paper.
  • Those that involve strangers...
    Example: entire team involved in a mock robbery of a stranger using the ATM

We didn't answer your question? No problem, just contact me at and I'll be happy to answer any question you have.

Bring a phone charger: You'll be making good use of your phones while playing the game, which tends to drain the battery. So, we recommend starting with a full charge and bring a charge cable to recharge afterwards.
