Brunei Events hosted its first-ever Virtual Treasure Hunt on Sunday, gathering some 120 participants who went head-to-head solving riddles and challenges in teams of four from the comfort of their own homes.
The inaugural virtual treasure hunt which was conducted via Zoom flagged off at 8.30am and was divided into three segments where each team had to solve 25 hunt questions, three treasure questions and one challenge.
To win the game, the team needs to collect a total of 110 points and the winning team will be determined according to the highest number of points collected.
All participants were given four hours to complete the treasure hunt, where teams were needed to submit all their answers latest by 12:30pm on the same day.
The hunt saw top five winners with the champion BFFS bringing home $500, second place won by Carilagi with $400 cash prize and Four Foragers won $300 in the third place.
Meanwhile, the fourth and fifth places went to Web Warriors and Cyber Ninjas who received $200 and $100, respectively.
Prior to the announcement, lucky draw prizes were given away whereby more than 15 of the treasure hunters won prizes such as Samsung Galaxy A22, Cuion mask and Xtrike Me Gaming accessories, among others.
The distribution of participants’ event goodie bags was also held a day before the event where the collection was done via a contactless drive-thru collection point at KHUB building.
