The scavenging hunts can be created for all age groups but if you want to create something for the grownups than we have you covered. Here are the top 5 ways you can make a successful hunt for the mature audience.
The clues on the hunt can be numerous and from all forms of life. If you want to spice it up a bit, you can take some content that is for the older audience and integrate it into the picture clues. For instance, placing clues that have the theme of the graveyard can hold riddles that have pictures of both heaven, hell and a big door with lots of dirt around it.
Don’t get us wrong we aren’t encouraging you to create a hunt in the graveyard just that the next clue can be at the entrance or at the cemetery. Another thing that you can do is create pictures with lots of alcohol and certain letters that would point your group to a bar where they need to order a particular beverage, and they would get the next clue attached to that beverage.
There are many ways you can make the group interact with the world and make it interesting, because who does not want to drink a cold beer during a hunt?
The advanced puzzles that kids can’t be a part of can be anything with calculations where the results can be further clues that can be tied down to the alphabet. Nothing forces a group to use their heads than when you give them math problems! All jokes aside this can be an awesome way to create situations where the group should be intentionally held a bit so that they don’t breeze through the whole content.
There are tons of songs that you can integrate into your hunts. Some have explicit language, and some don’t, but the most fun thing to do is to get the songs that everyone in the group loves and get some meaningful rhyming words that can be your next clues to the next part of the hunt.
The best ways to get the group interactive is to get the big guns from the trivia and general knowledge. Many people don’t know or just don’t care about certain subjects, but for others, it will be a passionate thing.
For instance, if you give the trivia clues about movies and the actors in them than some people who haven’t watched them will learn something new while the individuals that love all of those movies will be the group leader in this specific clue hunting.
Give them something to figure out like what was the name of the lead actors in the movie and then highlight one letter in every main actor’s name and make that be the location of their next hunting quest.
The scavenging hunt app offers many forms of team building activities, but the best ones are hidden. The fact is that gathering a team in one location is an easy feat, but to get enough content for them to be occupied for a particular time can be challenging.
The more people gather the more content should be challenging as if the content is too easy people will finish it sooner and then be bored till the end of the gathering. However, if the content is too hard people might give up to early, so a balance must be struck in between those two modes, and a medium has to be offered that can supervise the event as it is progressing.
When a new group gathers it’s critical to give them enough opportunity to coordinate together and to create an event that will get them all engaged. For this purpose, we have made a couple of tips that you can use as the organizer of such an event.
The best thing you can do on every gathering is to know which people excel at certain things and get them all spread out. Having one team that far outclasses the rest can be boring and not challenging for them and for the rest it can be frustrating instead of fun.
To create a balanced team, have a questionnaire before you set them out on their first scavenging hunt. Ask questions like who is good at math, who uses glasses, who loves to take pictures, who loves to read and similar stuff. The hunt can be compromised of several little things that will make it fun for everyone if individuals can do one thing better than the rest of the group and it will be the best way to make them work together.
If the people in your workplace love a particular theme, there is no reason to force them to play something that they hate. When you do the questionnaire ask them what they like and what they prefer over something else. The more you know, the better setting you can make.
If people in your workplace love a particular sitcom you can theme it with questions from that sitcom, if they prefer Shakespeare you can formulate the clues to sound like old English. There are thousands of themes it’s important to pick the right one.
If a group can’t beat a riddle than the hunt can fail. Create more ways than one that the team can solve a puzzle. If they can’t, deal it with the way they understand it, have another way that they can understand. It important to have a plan b as that can make or break the hunt. The more ways you have, the better, even if they don’t get used in this quest you can save them for the next one.
