GISHWHES is a global world-record-breaking scavenger hunt heralded the world over as, well, in the words of one participant, "The weirdest, wildest, most inspiring week of my life!" But let's not get too touchy feely - there's also a killer prize: if you win GISHWHES '15, you and your entire team will be flown to join Misha Collins and his spider monkey in a Costa Rican adventure of volcanos, rain forests and discotecking.
YOU DON'T NEED A TEAM to play! Sign up as an individual and we'll put you with 14 kick-ass teammates from around the world. Or, if you already have a posse of players, you can invite friends when you register and build your own team. On August 1st, we'll post a list of things for you to do, make, or find. Then you'll photograph or video the completed items for points. You can participate from anywhere - in your house, in public, underwater: literally anywhere on the planet!
And when you register, you can feel good, because each year GISHWHES donates tens of thousands of dollars to the charity Random Acts!
Be awesome. Be abnormal. Be GISHWHES.
"GISHWHES reawakened the part of me that finger painted as a shild and laughed at my messes. I cannot remember the last time I felt this inspired and joyful."- Jennifer A
"I've been banned from Wikipedia, beheaded a teddy bear, and glued an egg to my hand... Oh my God GISHWHES, why?"- Brodie E
"My mom, who has been off work because of a severe injury at work for almost three years, was on my team and for the first time in years she smiled genuinely and even with the pain she says she had time for her life, too."- Shannon B
We make it easy. All you have to do is register and then we'll walk you through it from there. It will be a journey of surprises, weirdness, kindness, and wondermentation. What's not appealing about that?Register
