  • Make sure you're not disrupting other classes
  • Be mindful of your noise level
  • Be respectful during the competition (responses and other teams)
  • Be creative in completing missions 
  • Bogus submissions will be deleted
  • Be productive (limited time)

Break into five (or less) even teams. Download the goosechase app and create an account. Each team can have up to five devices. I will give you a game code to join. One team member needs to create a team and then others will join using their code. Work as a team to complete missions to earn points and achieve world domination.
