These are the official rules of Bad Pirate Tre.Ventures.
I expect most of you don't need to be reminded of these things. Being a Bad Pirate though, I know there will be some that DO need reminding HAR ! So here is the full, detailed, long winded list...
Each Tre.venture may have additional rules, or rules that supersede these, that will be posted on it's Hunt Page.
- The most important rule is to have FUN !
- To the locations you are in, their surroundings, and to others you meet.
- Practice Leave No Trace while on your Tre.venture.
- There is no need to dig, move, remove, or alter anything, at any time.
- What you bring with you, you should bring back with you - this includes trash.
- Practice proper social distancing at all times.
- Have face masks and hand sanitizer with you.
- Use face masks as directed by town, county, state, and federal guidelines/laws.
- Do not trespass on private property.
- Follow all park, city, town, county, state, federal, and other applicable laws at all times.
- This includes hours of operation for Locations.
- Must be 21 years of age to purchase a Hunt Key and live in a jurisdiction that allows purchase.
- Those under 21 years of age may be part of a team, with someone 21 years of age or over responsible for them.
- One (1) Hunt Key is good for a group of five (5) people for a given Tre.Venture.
- Family, friends, whatever you like - this will be your Team.
- You are welcome to Tre.venture solo, if you think you have five brains HAR !
- A maximum of five (5) members per team is based on two factors.
- The average number of people that will fit into an average car.
- Not having large Teams moving through public areas.
- Each Tre.venture will have:
- A minimum number of Hunt Keys required to be sold prior to the start date - this is to ensure the Tre.venture can be run successfully.
- A maximum number of Hunt Keys able to be sold - this is to maximize the experience of all.
- Do not share information outside of your Hunt Team in ANY form.
- Don't post pictures on social media of your activities until the Tre.venture is completed for ALL participants.
- Doesn't matter if a family member or friend has another Hunt Team - do not share.
- This includes, but is not limited to: Hunt Keys, Clues, Locations, pictures, and hints.
- We reserve the right to disqualify the Hunt Key of anyone who shares information outside their Hunt Team
- All Placement prizes will be awarded.
- Non-Placement prizes are not awarded unless they are found and solved.
- Only one (1) Placement prize per Hunt Key.
- Only one (1) Non-Placement prize per Hunt Key
- All winners will be validated prior to prizes being awarded.
- Validation includes: Hunt Key, Clues being solved in order, visited physically, correct selfie backgrounds, and all Hunt Rules followed.
- Winners are responsible for any taxes incurred from prizes won.
- Prizes will be delivered to the address on record for the winning Hunt Key, as defined at the time of purchase.
All Sales Are Final
- In order to offer large Prize values for Tre.ventures we cannot have people canceling at the last minute, similar to a concert.
- Tre.ventures are many-day events, involving multiple people on a Team.
- Things are bound to come up and individual Team members may have conflicts at the Hunt start date/time, or even the full day.
- This should not significantly affect your Tre.venture experience given the many-day nature of the event.
- There are two exceptions, when a Tre.venture may be canceled and Hunt Keys refunded.
- If the minimum number of Hunt Keys are not sold by the start date.
- For unforeseen circumstances, at our discretion.
- Tre.ventures are not affected by weather - use your own judgement on local weather conditions.
- You do not need to go inside any building.
- You do not need to pay for admission to any location.
- If you find yourself in a Location that does not feel safe, most likely you are not at the right Location.
- You give permission to use your selfie pictures provided during the hunt and your provided Nickname in promotion of the hunt.
- No employees of Bad Pirate, its partners, or their families may participate in Tre.ventures.
We reserve the right to
- Modify, cancel, or reschedule a hunt based on unforeseen events, circumstances outside of our control, or breach in confidentiality by a participant.
- Set the Prize amount, Prize distribution based upon completion, Hunt Key price, and number of Hunt Keys sold for a given hunt.
- Refuse selling a Hunt Key or allow participation to anyone, for any reason.
By purchasing a Hunt Key you are agreeing to these Tre.venture Rules, any Hunt specific rules (see Hunt Page), and the Liability Waiver for the Hunt - for yourself and all Team members.
