**WHAT IS GISH?**
This isn’t your grandmother’s scavenger hunt. GISH (the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt) is your ticket to an all-inclusive vacation from the mundane— anytime you want. Pack your creativity & kiss normalcy goodbye! We’ll return you, but not in original condition... guaranteed.
An ongoing competition to shake up your world for good, GISH challenges you to put your creativity, compassion, courage, and weirdness to the test. Complete hilarious, kind, artistic, adventurous, or creative challenges to win points and prizes. Play with your best friends, or meet new people from all over the globe who will definitely become your new GISH friends forever, or, as we like to call them, “accomplices”.
In addition to participating in ongoing free challenges in our app, you can also join our annual GISH Hunt. For one week every summer, players team up to compete in an outrageous week-long game where they tackle fun, wildly creative items from a list for a shot at the Grand Prize — an all-expense-paid adventure with your team somewhere amazing (boring places like haunted castles in Scotland, jungles in Costa Rica, Icelandic volcanoes... We’re breezy.).
The Guardian says it’s “one of the strangest acronyms and unusual competitions in existence.” People magazine reports, “the weirdness (is) worldwide…” Wired says it’s, “a new twist on scavenger hunts.” You’ll call it “positively life-changing” and “something that happened to me.” Yahoo calls GISH, “brilliantly clever, gut-bustingly funny, and positively unforgettable.” Come play with us and find out for yourselves. It’s time to become the champion your mom always said you could be... Join GISH!
Ever wanted to meet people just as weird and creative as you? Use our GeoGISH map to find new GFFs (GISH Friends Forever) and team members for the Hunt. Our group chat feature allows you to talk to people in your area. Locations are purposely inaccurate (2000 feet proximity) to maintain privacy. Should you want to meet up in person, that’s on you. It’s like a scavenger hunt where the prize is human buddies!

EDIT: ITS ALIVE!
Camp Counselors: Thank you SOO much for fixing the app! I am exited to use it to TAKE OVER THE WORLD! Although I’m not sure exactly what that means yet... :)
OP: “App won’t open- Title screen then CRASH! I want to play! This has happened since last GISH, but I would have thought that it would be ok for mini Gish. The inaugural mini Gish, I was able to play from my home computer,but this time I will be in the hospital and was hoping to use my phone and App. Hopefully I’ll be able to rent a laptop from the nurses station, but it’s not guaranteed. I’ll do my best as I’m sure this won’t be updated before tomorrow. Go out there and Get Gishy With It!”
I love Gishwhes, but the Gish app...not so much...
Let me preface this by saying that I love Misha. He is unbelievably kind and is absolutely incredible for all of the work he has done for others, especially through GISHWHES.
Now that being said, the app is a good idea, but it has some MAJOR bugs. First off, it literally takes about two+ minutes for the app to even open. I know this because I ended up timing it! Secondly, once you are on the app, the lagging doesn’t stop. Videos don’t play and pictures won’t pop up. In fact, entire posts won’t even be there even after I’m sent a notification about it.
Speaking of notifications, they come at very awkward times in relation to the posts.
I’ve had notifications alert me to a post that had gone up a day or two before, but at the same time, I’m getting notifications on posts that I can’t view because they don’t show up for another couple of hours. It’s really confusing.
Then there are the random app crashes.
I think what happened is that they rushed with the programming and creation of the app in order to get it out long enough before the hunt, for either promotion’s sake, or to find these bugs and fix them before the hunt begins.
The Gish Gnomes obviously had nothing but good intentions, but I think that the app needs a bit of tinkering!
Much love to them though! Y’all are great!! 🤟🏻😘💞
GISH will take you wonder by wonder
...on an endless carpet ride. My eyes were truly opened when the world around me was transformed by this magical mystery tour of greatness. This app will not only knit all the sock monkey hats you could ever want, but it can generate your very own sock monkey army of minions! You can rule them all, find them, and in the darkness bind them all without the hassle of polishing an old hunk of outdated jewelry. Man, you can iron out all the details, be the captain of your land, and not have to hulk out trying to be a visionary leader while assembling your teammates. Keeping tabs on the chat doesn’t even require a hawkeye, it tell you when you’ve been mentioned. GISH will keep you living la vida Loki!
