What's this all about?

The BE+ Sustainability Scavenger Hunt is back and promises to deliver the most fun, the most sun, and the most puns yet. Get your crew back together or start a new team and join us for some friendly competition! Explore sustainable practices in the built environment while engaging your colleagues and getting creative. Complete as many missions as you can for the chance to win prizes and awards! 

Last year, 26 teams completed over 1600 missions! The energy was contagious and the quality of submissions was outrageous.

Once again, the BE+ Scavenger Hunt will be hosted digitally by goosechase* and will allow teams of 4, or larger for families, to complete a series of photo, video, and text based missions to gain points over 20 days spanning three weekends. The game is self paced, with the exception of 14 missions that are aligned with days of the week.

BE+ hosted a virtual Kickoff Event on the evening of April 3rd to go over rules, answer any questions, and help facilitate team formation (view recording). The hunt went live the morning of April 4th. Registration and team creation will be live throughout the duration of the 20 day runtime, so you can join in at any time. The game ends on April 23rd at 6:30pm EDT, and then we will come together the evening of April 27th for a Celebration Event, where we will announce the winners and give out some fantastic prizes.

Build Your Team

In the BE+ Sustainability Scavenger Hunt, teamwork and communication will be key. Below are some teamwork tips and information:

Team Requirements:

  • Teams are limited to 4 Adults 18yrs or older, children not limited. Teams sizes of 1 to 3 are allowed. Atleast 1 Adult 18yrs or older is required per team.
  • You will have 3 options for deciding your teammates:
    1. Join a team created by another player through the goosechase app.
    2. Create a team for others to join through the goosechase app.
    3. Request a team assignment from a BE+ administrator.
  • Interested in a bulk rate for teams? Contact



  • Teams do not need to meet in person, but will need to coordinate their mission entries. However, the number of team members that participate in a submission may impact the quality, which can be used as a tiebreaker.
  • BE+ will host a digital communications space on Slack for your team to stay connected with each other and with all teams and players during the runtime of the scavenger hunt. This can include a private team channel, private direct messaging, and public channels for camaraderie, questions, and more.

Additional Guidance:

  • When the scavenger hunt goes live, you will see the full list of available missions. Your team should draft a rough plan of which missions will be completed by whom. There will also be some time-limited surprise missions that get announced throughout the hunt.
  • Make sure to answer the trivia questions for a chance to win more points and prizes!
  • Missions can be completed either collaboratively or by an individual team member. However, each mission can only be submitted by one member per team in the goosechase app. That mission will then disappear from the whole team’s mission list.
  • Team prizes will be awarded to each team member.


  • Awards and prizes will be announced at the celebration event following the end of the scavenger hunt.
  • Teams have a chance to win prizes in the following categories
    • Overall Winner: awarded to the standout team with the most points! Smaller prizes will be given to the runner up and third place teams.
    • Team Favorite: the BE+ team selects a mission submission that brought the most joy!
    • Crowd Favorite: awarded to the team that received the most likes on a mission submission! 
    • Best Individual
    • Top Submission: awarded for the best quality submission.
    • Community Impact: awarded to the team that best used the scavenger hunt as an opportunity to do good in their community.
    • Sponsored Mission Favorite: awarded to the best individual submission in a sponsored mission – selected by the sponsors!


Do I have to live in Massachusetts to participate?

  • Absolutely not, all of our missions were designed so that they can be completed from anywhere on the globe!

I’m having trouble with goosechase, what are my resources?

Do I have to complete every mission?

  • You do not need to complete every mission to win (although the winning teams always have).

What exactly are the daily missions?

  • Starting Sunday April 9th, there will be a total of 14 daily missions – one for each day. They will each be available for 24 hours, between 8:00am ET and 8:00am ET the next day. Complete all daily missions to earn bonus points!
  •  The mission will show up automatically in your list at this time and disappear upon its expiration. These missions are comparable to the others, only themed to align with that day of the week.
  • We are not providing daily mission saves this year, so if you miss it, you miss it.

How does BE+ ensure submissions meet the criteria?

  • All submissions will be individually reviewed by a BE+ administrator to determine if it meets an objective threshold of mission requirements. This year we are not allowing resubmissions, so ask any clarifying questions you have in the #hints-tips-questions Slack channel.

Is there a limit to the number of people I can have per team?

  • Yes, each team can have no more than four adults (aged 18+). However, there is no limit to the number of youth players that can participate per team. All youth can play for free with at least one adult required per team.

My whole team participated in a mission, do we get bonus points?

  • If a submission meets the specified criteria, your team will receive full points regardless of if the submission was completed by one team member or all team members. 

How is the overall winner determined?

  • Each mission is worth an assigned point value. When a mission submission is approved by BE+ your team will be awarded that full amount of points. The team with the most total points at the end of the scavenger hunt will be declared the winner.

What happens if there is a tie in total team points?

  • BE+ will review the quality of each individual submission of the tied teams to determine the winner.

What if I still have an unanswered question? How will I get support while participating in the scavenger hunt?

  • While we did our best to clarify, we expect that we missed something you have a question about. Please reach out to or call us at 617-752-2422 and we will be happy to assist. This FAQ section will also be updated as needed.
  • If you are a participant in the scavenger hunt, access will be provided to a shared slack channel #hints-tips-questions which will serve as an interactive FAQ for real time support and collaboration with fellow players and BE+ staff.

What to know about health & safety

  • Please use your best judgment about the health & safety of all players and those around you.
  • Built Environment Plus assumes no responsibility for any illnesses contracted or injuries suffered by participants.
