Pathfindr is a game of real-world exploration where players use an iPhone web app to find checkpoints, complete challenges, and race their way to victory.

When you look at a Pathfindr game map, you will see two types of markers; Checkpoints and Challenges. Checkpoints are markers that you must visit in a specific order. A game of Pathfindr begins with you checking into the first Checkpoint, and ends when you check into the final Checkpoint after completing all of the Challenges. All players who complete the COaP game will be entered into a drawing to randomly receive $30 worth of iTunes gift cards courtesy of the Pathfindr team.
