treasure huntRelic Raiders is a popular theme. And one of the most popular games in within this theme is the perennial favourite: the "Treasure Hunt" game.

In fact this is a new take on theold favourite.

Before the participants arrive hide several items around the playing area.

Does your child love the "Indiana Jones" movies? 

Do they love playing the "Tomb Raider" video games? 

Then a "Treasure Hunt" game is perfect.

The props can be themed to keep with the event. Ideas include:

  • a blue scarab (an Egyptian artefact prop) here's a design to print out, cut it out and colour it in, then stick it on top of a small box, click here.
  • a toy treasure chest
  • a treasure map (click here) or secret letter like the one pictured.

The team that finds the most props (or loot), wins.

The gamers can, of course, help create the playing area but should not be allowed back in the area after the relics have been hidden.

In the game instructions make sure each participant understands they cannot move a relic back to their base while "de-activated".

If they are de-activated while holding a relic, they must to drop it immediately.

Gamers are not to snatch a relic from another "activated" gamer on the opposition team.

This game should be run for no more than 7 minutes. Normally the phaser are delivered untimed, but can configure them to run for a specific time with the Master Controller. 

This game works best if the gamers get no re-activations during the 7 minutes. If you are tagged - you are out! 

This is a perfect idea for a party around Easter time, you can hide Easter Eggs for an Easter Eggs hunt!
