Enter the first DUELS scavenger hunt!

Want to hone your library research skills? Love a good word game or want to show off your cryptic clue-solving skills? This is the event for you!

We’re inviting Deakin students to participate in our scavenger hunt, which kicks off at 9am today (21 June)! You can register and participate anytime over the next couple weeks, through 5 July.  

​Here’s what you can win:

Blue hardcover book with the title Grimm's Fairy Tales

The lucky winner of our Scavenger Hunt will win this beautiful, limited edition copy of the Grimm’s Fairy Tales by the Folio Society. Valued at $120, this is a prize you don’t want to miss a chance of winning!

Here’s how it works:

The Scavenger Hunt is powered by an app called ActionBound. You can download it on your smart device here before the event itself.

The hunt runs over the inter-trimester break online. You’ll have until 11:59pm on Sunday 11 July to finish the hunt, so you can make sure you’re happy with your answers.

This event is open to all Deakin students, but DUELS members get discounted tickets (see below for more info).

The winner will be contacted before our Word & Board Game event on Monday 26 July.

The scavenger hunt is broken into three parts

Part 1: Library Scavenger Hunt

This part of the hunt is designed to show you hidden gems around the Deakin Library site to help with your studies in the future. Take a look around beforehand to get your bearings for a head start.

Part 2: Puzzles & Riddles

Love a good word game or want to show off your cryptic clue-solving skills? You’ll love this section of our Scavenger Hunt! Expect logic puzzles, find-a-words, and cryptic clues ahead.

Part 3: Around the House

In this section, you’ll have to search your own house based off clues or instructions. Fair warning: you’ll have to get a bit creative with some of the answers here. 😉

Parts 1 & 2 are points-based, but Part 3 will be marked by an impartial judge with a good sense of humour.

Best of all, you can do the whole thing from the comfort of your own home! This event is open to members from all campuses. 🙂
