Several teams of no more than four race each other to find the most dragon balls. The team with the most when time is called (or when all balls are found) wins a wish.
Each ball will have a prize attached (be it a gift card to food) or a discount at a vendor (if approved by vendor) or for ACen swag (also if approved) that the team can share (four tickets on each ball so that no one gets left out. tickets can not be combined. one ticket per customer or as the vendor rules).
Each team will have a paper with seven riddles. Each answer to the riddle reveals a location a ball can been found to narrow the search. Teams can assign tasks to their members, like a person to search and a person to solve.
The game can be held in rounds like elimination matches. The first two rounds can be held on Friday making it a total of four teams competing. From each round, the winner will advance to the final battle held on Saturday where they will "fight" in a larger area.
A new riddle sheet will be handed out. Time can be longer.
The grand prize winner will get the Grand Wish (tickets to the next ACen for each if approved...and hopefully provided by ACen instead of out of pocket...)
Second place can have a nice prize too...just not as good as tickets to ACen.
A rule about ball hiding restrictions:
Balls can not be in:
private areas/reserved rooms
areas restricted to con-goers
congested areas like cosplay photoshoot locations (while the shoot is on going)
restaurants (or where non-congoers are trying to enjoy what little peace and quiet they can get)
Pretty much anywhere that will cause trouble for people and IRT...(yes IRT are people too though I suspect some have undergone robotic modifications)
