The CBQ Scavenger Hunt is Here!


Hey, Queerkateers! It’s C2E2 weekend, and that means it’s time for our official CBQ Scavenger Hunt! Remember, you don’t have to be at the con to participate.

The rules are simple:

Step 1: Print out a copy of the official CBQ Scavenger Hunt game card, or pick one up in person at C2E2 by visiting our friends at Geeks Out!

Step 2: Get to snappin’! Recruit your friends! Recruit your enemies! Take pictures of the items listed on the Scavenger Hunt card - BUT REMEMBER, the card itself has to appear in your picture for it to count!

Step 3: Tweet your pics to us! Send them to @comicbookqueers, and use the hashtag #CBQSH. Not a Twitterer? You can also e-mail your photos to We’ll share all the entries we get.

Step 4: Win! (hopefully) Every picture you send us is worth 1 or 2 points (scoring rules will go live Friday morning). You can submit multiple entries in each category, but we’ll only count your best-scoring pics. And, each picture can only count in a single category, even if it has multiple elements in it. Tweet early and tweet often! Duplicate pictures or subjects will not be scored. Each point you earn puts your name in to a drawing for our fabulous CBQ prize pack! A $100,000 value!*  *Not really

Fine print stuff:

Don’t be a jerk. Get your subjects’ permission before taking pictures. If we have to remove your picture, it’s not worth any points.

Be creative! We can’t wait to see what you come up with! Remember: being at C2E2 is NOT a requirement to win! Anyone can play!

Pictures will be accepted from 10am CST on April 26th until 8pm April 28th. We will announce a winner as part of our C2E2 wrapup coverage.
