Cookie Run: Kingdom hosts real-world scavenger hunt to celebrate the upcoming BTS collaboration

In one of the wildest real-world events I’ve personally ever seen hosted for a mobile game, Cookie Run Kingdom has introduced a real-life scavenger hunt/riddle-solving mystery for players to find and solve, all to celebrate the upcoming BTS crossover event planned to launch pretty soon.

With this challenge, players and fans of either the game, BTS, or both, will be given emoji-based hints through Cookie Run: Kingdom’s social media accounts. With these hints to go off of, they’ll have to find keywords hidden on billboards in cities all over the globe. These range from Korea, the United States, Japan, Brazil, Thailand, and Canada. So, that’s most of the major players covered, which means there will surely be hundreds, if not thousands of fans participating in this event.

The event has begun with a message from the Kpop group BTS themselves, and upon going off, acted as the alarm for everyone to start hunting and keeping close eyes on those accounts.

When, or if I suppose, all of these keywords do get collected at long last, a code will be pieced together that will offer up exclusive in-game rewards alongside an art book related to the event. The riddles themselves will be revealed one by one every day up until October 12th, so you only have a limited time to participate.

Along with this, there’s also already been some celebratory billboards spotted in Seoul, Times Square in New York, and Shinjuku Cross Vision in Tokyo. These aren’t quite done, but are planned to be 3D advertisements for the event once completed. So, needless to say, they are hyping the heck out of this one, and you won’t wanna miss it.

If you’d like to keep tabs on those social media accounts yourself to try and participate, you can check out the official Cookie Run: Kingdom Twitter account or the official YouTube account - whichever you prefer. In the meantime, if you’re looking to dig into the game for the first time, you can check it out at either of the links below for completely free.
