Scoring

Points: The successful completion of each photo-task should net players a certain number of points. So that teams can tactically plan their order of attack, the precise number of points that each task is worth should be made clear to participants before the game begins.

For example, for the completion of the simplest tasks, you may receive ten points. Slightly more difficult tasks could be worth twenty points, and really demanding ones 30 points, and so on.

If players know in advance that doing certain difficult tasks will get them higher points, they might want to try these first, saving the easier ones for later if time will allow.

Bonus Points

In order to make the game even more challenging, bonus points can be given for meeting certain criteria or successfully carrying out extra tasks. For example, bonus points might be awarded if you:

  • Instant post on our OUHSC social media pages
  • Visit at least five (5) or more places/locations by Fall semester (December 13, 2019) and ten (10) or more by end of the Spring semester (May 2, 2020).
