The reeds are buzzing… Are YOU ready??

The Munajahti of Hankkijat is coming back on March 29, and it’s bigger than ever! The mythological pike chicken has once again laid her orange eggs in the warmth of pubs and bars near the orange-colored tracks of Espoo and Helsinki…

The location of the eggs can only be found out by solving mysterious clues, so get your cognition in order! Waiting at the checkpoints are the Pike Chicken Envoys who will offer a hint to the next checkpoint, although only after the team has completed a task ever so whimsical.

Munajahti is also a team sport where  Wonderful Prizes are awarded. So a) the fastest and b) most inventive team gets a chest full of glittering gold… or at least something equally great! The event includes, of course, a good old Afterparty @OK20 downstairs. Otakaari 20 also serves as the starting point (the first clue can be fetched between 16-18) and as the finish line.

Ticket sales (6€ / 8€ with overall badge) start on 6.3. at 12:00 at tinyurl.com/munajahti2023 . So remember to stalk kide.app like a preying hawk, or the ticket may be out of your reach… Attention! All team members must buy their own ticket!

Remember to also join our Telegram info channel at t.me/munajahti

What: Egg hunt
Huh? 3-in-1 Checkpoint tour / Treasure hunt / bar crawl
When: 29.3.2023 starting at 16

In addition to singing, the cheerful staff of LuTku will take care of your enjoyment during the evening with a surprise program. The fun does not end at the final stop, as after the sitsit there will be an afterparty, which includes a possibility to go to the sauna!
