The Great Megalytic Scavenger Hunt

By Megalytic Staff - May 24, 2018

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, it probably means you spend a lot of your time searching for unique and specific insights among a sea of data and advice. In your normal day to day life, finding answers can feel a bit like a scavenger hunt.
Well, because today is National Scavenger Hunt Day, we’ve decided to take it to the next level. This is the annual day dedicated to accomplishing tasks and collecting miscellaneous items for the pure thrill of the hunt. To get in on the game, we’re happy to announce the Great Megalytic Scavenger Hunt of 2018.
We’ve created a list of 18 questions and quests across 4 different categories, for you to track down! You’ll need an email account, something to take screenshots with, and your sharpest wits.
This post and this scavenger hunt are all about you, our readers. We hope you enjoy our regular posts and our tools, but today let’s play a game. Maybe this exercise will help introduce you to sections of the website or aspects of your account you might not be as familiar with.
But above all, we want you to have fun. To sweeten the deal, we will award a prize to the first submission that correctly responds to all 18 items.
To Enter: Send your responses to by Midnight on May 31st.
The Prize: The winner will receive 6 months FREE Megalytic Premium Subscription ($1,200 value).
Ready? Let’s get scavenging!!!
