Town of Duck Scavenger Hunt Rules

During this OBX Treasure Hunt, all the clues and answers can be found around the sound side boardwalk in the Town of Duck. You won’t need to come into contact with anybody, all locations will be outdoors, and on public property.

No answers require touching or lifting items. If you encounter others please be respectful and stay 6 feet apart at all times. The 10 clues will be delivered by text, if at any point you get stuck just reply “hint” for more info. Safety is our top priority.

Using the internet to look up answers is considered cheating and takes away from the spirit of the game. The treasure hunt is timed and should take about an hour so make sure to have water and sunscreen. Please be aware of your surroundings and weather conditions. Now let’s get going!
