[NA] Scavenger Hunt Offer Tag

Hi, everyone! I’m hoping it’s okay to just start this. As someone who can’t get enough of tags, I thought it would be nice to have a North America version of one of my favorites, the Scavenger Hunt Offer Tag.

The idea here is:

A person posts a picture of a card they’re offering and a prompt to find something else. The original poster sends the card they offered to the first person who finds their request - it is a send to the person below you tag.

For example, at the end of this post I’m going to post a picture of the card I’m offering, and I will say “Find -insert item here”. To claim my card, you’ll need to be the first one to find what I’ve sent you to find in your postcard stash.

When tagging/claiming the card, please post more than just “tag” - if you don’t have the image readily available, leave a short description of it (i.e. if it’s from a box set you can say “uploading image of card from -this box set-”… or if the prompt is to find flowers, you can say “uploading picture of a field of flowers, flowers in a vase”, etc.) An image is required, so please try to provide one within 10 minutes of commenting with a description. If no image is provided after ten minutes and a few minutes after a request to do so beyond that window, the game will go on and your tag will be skipped.

  • If nobody has been able to find your challenge within three days, please edit your request to find something different!

To get this started, I’m offering this New Yorker card:
