“Jamshedpur Bounty” an e-treasure hunt for the citizens of Jamshedpur

Tata Steel is organizing an e-treasure hunt “Jsr Bounty” for the citizens of Jamshedpur. This game will be played from 7 pm on March 2, 2017 till 6 pm on March 4, 2017. This being an e-treasure hunt, it will be played using a smartphone or a tablet and will involve interesting quizzes in the form of anagrams, trivia and will involve engaging in fun activities at various locations around the city. To play the game, the players will need to download the Actionbound app onto their smartphones or tablets from the respective app stores of Android and iOS.

To start the game, players will need to look for a QR code in and around the Jubilee Park area. The players need to have data connection on their devices when starting and finishing the hunt. On scanning the QR code, the hunt will get downloaded onto the player’s device and can be played at their leisure over the 3 days of the game. Tata Steel wants to stress on the fact that this is not a race and players should not be in a hurry to finish the hunt and jeopardize self and public safety. Players can pause the game at any stage and return to it at their convenience, while not exceeding the end time of the game. It is a single-player, multi-staged treasure hunt to be played and enjoyed over the span of 3 days.

Tata Steel is also organizing similar e-treasure hunts for the employees and their families at Kolkata and Mumbai on the occasion of the 178th Birth Anniversary of the Founder. Happy Gaming !!
