Scavenger hunts are tons of fun, but there aren't nearly enough of them once you outgrow the bouncy-castle-in-the-back-garden type of parties. Looking to reignite our love affair with party games that went out of fashion when we discovered the opposite sex, Intel has launched a scavenger hunt that offers smartphone users the chance to win prizes from the chip giant by taking pictures of Intel ads.
Intel has hidden points inside certain Intel advertisements. These points can be uncovered by using the Intel in Sight iPhone app, which utilizes the device's camera and gives you hints on where to look for your next batch of points. The person who racks up the most points will win a Core i5 laptop, while runners-up prizes include Best Buy gift cards in $250, $100, and $25 increments.
Though Intel only provided a link to the iPhone application, the company says people can use either the iPhone app or "a camera enabled mobile device," to take pictures. However, no information was provided for those who want to play without an iPhone, other than to text "Core" to 6174604517 to get started.
The contest is running from September through to the end of November. Click here to download the application. (opens in new tab)
