How do I set up the Scavenger Hunt? To set up the Scavenger Hunt, you will need to cut the clue cards in half and hide them around the house. The harder the clues are to find, the more fun the kids have!

What if the kids get stuck on one of the puzzles? First off, let them think for a bit! This is where critical thinking skills come in. There are 6 types of puzzles. If they get stuck, hint cards have been included to guide them and provide examples.

Where do kids start? You may begin in any location of your house. It does not matter the order in which they unscramble the clues.

How do kids know if their answers are correct? There is an answer key provided in the PDF.

Do I need locks, envelopes, or special equipment? NOT AT ALL! This was created to make your life easier! Perfect for last-minute party planners! There are no fancy envelopes to stuff or odd shapes to cut out. All you will need to do is to print, cut in half, and hide the clue cards!

How are Think Tank Scavenger Hunts different than other scavenger hunts? Our scavenger hunts are unlike any others! What sets us apart is the element of PUZZLE decoding! Other products simply display a location or riddle, there’s no “solving” or “decoding”. We think our puzzles add an extra layer of fun for all! It also ensures the game lasts a little longer, so you feel confident in your purchase.

Do I have to print out the game materials for every single kid? Nope, not at all! Unlike other games on the internet, ours is the ONLY ONE where you ONLY have to print out the answer sheet for each kid or group. Just one set of the Clue Cards is all you need!
