Tasks / Bigger, Better, Or More Bizarre

This task is retired.

A scavenger hunt with a twist...

Team up with another player (or thirty). Each player or team begins with a small, cheap item, such as an unsharpened number 2 pencil or a cotton ball. Offer these items to innocent bystanders in a trade for something bigger, better, or more bizarre. Repeat the process with the next item you acquire, and the one after that, for a set amount of time (1.5 hours is usually enough to produce absurd results), photographically documenting each trade.

At the end of the game, regroup with your fellow players and compare the spoils of your efforts. Whoever ends with the biggest, best, or most bizarre item wins.
