GISHWHES – The ‘Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen’

Update: Nerds Raging has a GISHWES TEAM!

A little while ago, Supernatural’s Misha Collins began linking to a website. The movement was called GISHWHES. There was no explanation about what it meant or what it did. Videos of a confusing and occasionally disturbing nature were put up on the website; including one on a loop which was just a camera zooming in and out on an eye while eerie whispers could be heard in the background. It was weird; but this was Misha we were dealing with, so we waited.

This week GISHWHES has been revealed. It stands for the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen. It is an attempt to get into the Guinness Book of Records for the largest worldwide scavenger hunt. It promises to be bigger than the great rhino hunt of 2010/2011.

The Hunt kicks off November 18th at 2:12am Moscow Daylight Time. The aim is to get 500 teams of equal numbers from all over the world. The hunt is moderated online so your teammates don’t need to be from the same country.

Registration costs $10(US), but you can donate more if you want. Aside from making a world record, the winning team have the chance (if enough money is raised) to win a round trip to Rome and dinner with Misha Collins. All information is on the website.

So what are you waiting for Minions? Go register and get ready to scavenge!
