List Rules Which ones will you put on your scavenger hunt list?

You're never too old to go on a scavenger hunt! Whether you're 3 or 53, there's something so fun about finding clues or hunting down specific items on a list. Are you in charge of putting the game together and struggling to find good scavenger hunt ideas? You won't have to hunt too far - we've made it easy by putting them all in one place.

You can organize your pursuit in a few ways: hand out clue cards (handwritten or printed) or just give your players a list of things they’ll have to find around town. You can even combine the scavenger hunt with another event like a pub-crawl. Break off into teams to create a scavenger hunt competition, or work together as a group to track down all the needed items. Or maybe you just want to keep it small - a Valentine's day or birthday scavenger hunt for your sweetie.

You don't even have to do traditional scavenger hunt clues as boring ol’ cards. You can hide your riddles in balloons or plastic eggs, and challenge your players to find them. Not into cards? Just great scavenger hunt games can be as easy as asking competitors to take a picture of a specific something, whether it’s an object or an activity. There are no rules to how to hunt for clues! Just remember: if you're going to do a photo-based hunt, create a hashtag so you can collect evidence easily!

Follow our clues to the best scavenger hunt ideas! Whether you’re planning a raunchy bachelorette scavenger hunt or a child-friend scavenger hunt for kids, you’ll find plenty of great clues here. Vote up the ones you like the best!
