Finders Frequently Asked Questions
How do I play?
The goal is to get to a location with a hidden tag game piece and grab it before anyone else. Claim it online using a code on the tag and you will get instructions on how to receive a game-specific prize.
Our games page has a list of games in progress and upcoming games.
How can I find out when a new tag is published?
While a game is in progress tags publish at specific times which vary from game to game. You can set up an alert to receive an e-mail each time a tag publishes in your area. To send you alerts we need your e-mail address. Please sign up. It's a quick process, we promise! If you already signed up, you can click here to configure your alerts.
I found a tag! Now what?
Congratulations! Please click here and enter the claim code which looks like "123-ABC". This marks the tag as claimed and notifies other players.
How do I redeem the tag for a prize?
Prizes and redemption rules vary by game. When you claim a tag you will be provided with instructions on the confirmation page and via e-mail.
Can I claim more than one tag?
No. To give more people a chance to win we ask that each player claims only one tag per game. If a game features multiple tag types, you may claim one of each type. Don't worry there will be other games!
What should I do if I can't find a tag?
It's possible that another player got here first or the tag has gone missing. Please go to the tag listing page and click the "Not There" button to mark it missing.
How can I become a hider?
Thank you for giving back to the Snag the Tag community! Hider opportunities come up from time to time and are announced on our social media. Hider packages contain the prize and tag for you to keep and two or more tags to hide. The cost varies by game but is around $35.
What are Badges?
A badge is a piece of virtual flare to add to your profile. You earn one by finding a code word or phrase and entering it on your profile page. Try the code "CLAIMAPRIZE" to get your first badge. There are many codes hidden in various game and social media content. Look around and ask around in the Facebook community group.
