How to make a clue game which works as a classic scavenger hunt items list?

We have previously written how to add excitement to the clue game with QR codes. This time we share some tips when you want to build a classical hunt where players have to find items. 

In these type of games people examine a task list at the start and then start to move around. During their walk they notice items and task possibilities in real life and can complete some of them.

This is a bit of a workaround but gives two levels to each task- finding the item and answering the question/task.

When you create a clue game then on the 3rd, Code`s page, write a navigation clue with a solution code on it.

So it looks like a classic scavenger hunt items list in the smart device:scavenger hunt Examples

  • “Find a leaf that has 5 pointy ends. When you have found it, type LEAF to the code field and find out more about the tree!”
  • “Find a man in a red shirt and type NEWFRIEND to unlock the task you have to do with him!”
  • “Find something grey and smooth. Type GRAY to the code field to answer a question and gather 10 points!”


If player does that, a question opens and they have to answer (in limited time) the question/ or take a photo. If it is just “no answer” type of question, it congratulates the players or shares a fact.

Let us know in the comments how you have used it and what was the outcome!
