Designers: SCVNGR
SCVNGR's big idea is to "build the game layer on top of the world." This is pretty awesome, but what's even cooler is that we want everyone to build it with us. So we build SCVNGR as part awesome game, part powerful game platform. Playing SCVNGR is a fun, casual game about going places, doing challenges and earning points. But everyone who plays SCVNGR can also build SCVNGR. Everyone, from individuals to institutions can build on SCVNGR by adding challenges to their favorite locations.

To show COAP what SCVNGR is all about, we've tasked our Lead Game Designer, Kate Reynolds with building some great challenges for COAP. We've connected them into a thing we call a "trek" which simply connects places and challenges to make the special COAP challenges easy to find!

Here's a bit on Kate herself: Kate is the challenge shredder! What the heck is a challenge shredder? It's one part professional tourist, one part evil scientist and one part dreamer. (Sprinkle a little child-like spirit and bake at 360 degrees)

She loves meeting new people (epecially those who speak Celtic, the basketball team, not the language) She'd be happy to tell you anything about SCVNGR and challenge shredding (well...almost anything.) Stop by and say hi!
