UKGE 2013 QR Code Treasure hunt

Around the Expo, eagle-eyed treasure hunters should search for long lost maps like the one above containing a QR Code. When scanned with a mobile phone they will reveal one letter of a secret passcode and a hidden clue that will lead you to the location of another treasure map. (No internet/ mobile connection is required.)

If you can solve the secret passcode, you should make your way to the Playtest Zone in the Arden Suite, where you will be entered into a prize draw to win a treasure trove of games from leading games publishers.

The QR Code Treasure Hunt will run on both days of the Expo. There are separate prize draws for Saturday and Sunday, which will both be drawn at 3pm in the Playtest Zone.

(Join the fun by downloading a QR Code Reader app to your mobile phone before you come to the Expo. There are plenty of these available for free on the Apple and Android App Stores.) The QR Code Treasure Hunt game is organised by Rob Harris from www.playtest.co.uk
