Project Mayhem

Project Mayhem is a combination scavenger hunt and pub crawl. This rediculousness will have you bouncing from pub to pub trying signature drinks and engaging in crazy antics for points. Points are everything. Points rule your evening.


Rules for Project Mayhem are fairly simple:

  • Teams may consist of no more than 5 people.
  • Teams must be registered with the reception desk or at Project Mayhem Home Base to participate.
  • You must complete the tasks on the hunt sheet and have the required proof to score points.
  • Don't get arrested (disqualification)
  • Don't attempt to coerce or bribe your Validator (disqualification)


To score points, complete the task or collect the item as indicated on the hunt sheet. Each task or item will indicate on the sheet what proof is required for your Validator to award points.

Home Base

Project Mayhem Home Base will be upstairs at Buffalo Billiards for the duration of the event Saturday night from 22:00 until 01:00. There will be a scoreboard to keep track of the players, as well as a Jury Box, where certain tasks being completed will be voted upon by the Jury. If you don't want to participate in the hunt, you can sit at the bar and judge them!

Contestants may turn in hunt items with their team Validator or at Home Base to score points.


Prizes for this competition will be based on points collected from performing tasks and collecting items. Top-ranking competitors will all receive a complimentary pass to next year's conference, as well as their choice of one of the following prizes:

  • $100 Amazon Gift Card provided by Amazon

  • Book Bundle provided by No Starch Press

  • $50 Maker Shed Gift Card provided by Trammell Ventures
