Successful hunters will win points throughout the game. You can follow our points guide for at-home prizes or come up with your own!

  1. FIND the items on the list to earn points – take a picture with your phone of yourself beside the item so your points can be counted when competitors come together at the end of the hunt.
  2. SOLVE riddles that lead to playful challenges and more opportunities to earn points.
  3. PLAY out your challenges with enthusiasm – get creative and earn scavenger hunt bragging rights!

Depending on the number of people in your home, you can compete as individuals or in teams. You can also work collaboratively to see how many points you rack up as one big team and challenge your friend’s household to the ultimate virtual scavenger hunt.

The first riddle will be read by the hunt leader/organiser.

RIDDLE #1: I am something that has not flesh, nor feathers, nor scales, nor bone. Yet I have fingers and thumbs of my own. What am I? When you figure this out, go find me. You’ll need me for the following challenge. [Winner gets 2 points]

You will need the gloves or mittens from Riddle #1, a knife and fork each, a chocolate bar in its wrapper and two game dice.

  1. Roll the two dice once each taking turns in a clockwise direction.
  2. When someone rolls a double, put on the gloves and try to open the chocolate bar then eat it square by square only using the knife and fork.
  3. Continue to eat until another player rolls a double. At this point the new ‘winner’ puts on the gloves or mittens and starts to eat the chocolate with the knife and fork, and so on.
  4. Whoever eats the last piece of chocolate wins! [Winner gets 2 points]
