SECTIONS 2 – SOLVE riddles that lead to playful challenges

and 3 – PLAY out your challenges with enthusiasm.

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]

*answer at bottom.



Play flip cup wearing the answer to Riddle #1 – Watch YouTube tutorial or read the instructions below:

Flip Cup Setup:

  1. Pick teams: Flip cup is usually played with a group of people. Split your group into even teams. If you have an odd number of players, that’s ok! Choose someone on the team with fewer players to drink twice.
  2. Set up your cups: Pour your desired amount of beer into each cup – make sure each teams pours the same amount. Then line up the cups for each team along opposite sides of a table – place your cup on the table in front of you.

Flip Cup Gameplay:

  1. Flip cup starts with the first people on each team chugging their beer, placing the empty cup back on the edge of the table (top down) and using their hand to flip the cup completely upside down (see diagram below).

Once the first player has successfully “flipped” their cup, the next player will play their turn by chugging, then flipping and so on. The team to flip their solo cups the fastest wins!



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]



  1. Write at least 20 of the ideas below each on a small piece of paper, then put them in a hat or a bowl. Pull one clue as each person takes their turn.
  2. Each person has 30 seconds to act out as many clues as possible (handy tip: set a 30-second countdown timer on your phone).
  3. The “actor” gets 1 point for each clue that is guessed correctly by their team, as does the person who guessed the clue.
  4. Once the actor’s 30-seconds is up move on to the next person in your team.
