Have you ever wondered how to do an amazing city scavenger hunt?!
An itinerary tour could seem to be a great activity at first, but people might enjoy a lot more discovering a city by themselves through funny challenges. Cities offer plenty of hidden secrets to discover, characters who made their fame, and fascinating stories to tell. Here you’ll find 3 steps that will allow you to make the perfect city scavenger hunt game for your clients or coworkers.
Gather a lot of interesting facts: important historical moments, key events, peculiar habits of the inhabitants, places known only to locals, and any other unusual discoveries. The three simplest ways of doing it are by googling, asking for information at the tourism center, or simply going around and noticing interesting elements that catch your attention by yourself.
Also, take into consideration the following factors:
All these details will make the information more or less adaptable to your around town scavenger hunt game and will serve as additional advice to the player.
This step is very important to design a perimeter for your city scavenger hunt game that is not too wide or too small, so people can discover the city without having to go too far if they travel by foot. Also, be careful while selecting a game duration – if it’s too short, the players won’t have enough time to properly get into the game, meanwhile, if it drags on for too long, your players will end up exhausted.
Then, think about the rules of your city scavenger hunt and try to imagine what could be more challenging:
If the game is happening in a big city and there are plenty of interesting facts to learn, try to adapt the rules to the people playing. Maybe you can have a set of rules which personalize the player experience, for example by letting them choose the theme they want to play or one that they want to avoid, so that the game is aligned with their tastes.
Now that you have collected all of your city scavenger hunt ideas and decided on the elements of the game and the way it will be played, you can pass to the most exciting part by thinking about how could your town scavenger hunt become even more fun and engaging. For example, you could enhance the information included in the game by taking pictures and/or videos. Additionally, try to create questions with funny or amusing answers from the information you have gathered.
You must also decide, how will the players receive the questions – will they already have all the questions at the beginning of the game will the player receive them once they have reached a certain location? In addition to that, the answers can also be submitted in different ways:
The players might also want to receive some clues, so you can think about some interesting ways how they could receive them.
