Still thinking about the Treasure Hunt party game: Here are some of the comments emailed to us about the amazing parties people have had using our treasure hunt planner system:
I had my treasure hunt last weekend over Halloween --it went very well --we used the eye ball (ping pong) task and the mummy toilet paper task --among others --the clue that I broke up into puzzle parts worked very well - even for 6 year olds! I have a winter birthday coming up for an 11 year old -- do you have any theme ideas?? - we have lots of snow here.....
Thanks Holly Cluse, Vermont, USA
Thanks for your hints we are using this for a Xmas party and it gave me some great ideas Regards Kathy Henry, Melbourne Australia
Thank you so much for offering this ebook. I love the treasure hunt book and I am working feverously on a party for next week. Thank you so much.

I really appreciate the game. We used the game for youth church activity. The group ranging from 12- 18 years old had a fun time together. The puzzle pieces had a riddle on it that led them to the key to the treasure chest. We had a wonderful time.
Thanks. Justin Peters, Massachusetts USA
The party was really fun. All the girls loved it and we can't wait to do it again!!

Dear Nikki, I loved the book it gave me wonderful ideas! I hope you come out with a sequel, because I bet it will rock!
Had the party! Ran the treasure hunt - and our guests had a GREAT time! Still getting comments about it! Sorry I don't have any photos... the 'mummy' wrap was hilarious!

This is just a quick note to let you know everything went well. We did make a few changes to your plan like you suggested, but followed most everything else. The kids had a great time and we may try something with the adult students this spring or summer. I’m sending you some photos too.

Hi Nikki --
I wanted to let you know that the treasure hunt was a big success. For us, the part we liked the most was that there was very little reading required, as we hosted 5 and 6-year olds! We also played the pairs game in your 10-best games because we had some kids from the new school and some kids from the old school.
Thanks for the great ideas!

Ian, thanks for the prompt response we managed to download the stuff and the bunch of 6 year olds loved running round our garden looking for the clues, thanks a lot

Dear Nikki hope you had a great Christmas,
The treasure hunt went really well - especially the challenges. Of course the losing team had to do a forfeit, we dressed them in Santa outfits and the rest of us were their reindeer - the forfeit was that Father Christmas had to go to the nearest post box and post his travel receipts back to Lapland and ask the first passer by if they could take a photograph of us all as proof that father Christmas had been to Croydon Surrey England - we did it, but not before mum and dad had run off into a neighbour’s garden to avoid all possible chance meetings with anyone they knew!
And just to get everything into context I am 43 mum is 65 and dad 75 - why haven’t we played this years ago?
I have taken pictures to send to you. Thanks very much.

Yes, we have had our treasure hunt. I don't know what I was looking for when I purchased your book....However it did help. I put the kids (age 7-13) into three teams. We used the stations where the teams had to go and complete a task as a team to earn clues. Each team had to figure out their clues to find their party goody bags. So the kids had a good time and it took them about 1 1/2hrs to do it. My daughters 12th birthday turned out nice...

Hi Nikki, My son is having his 'half' birthday at school because it is during the summer. We did the Pirate Treasure Hunt Game for his whole birthday last summer. Anyway, he asked me if we were going to do a 'really great and cool party like last time' for his half birthday. So 6 months later he still remembers the Pirate Treasure Hunt and still thinks it was cool! I thought I would keep this Scavenger Hunt on hand.
Thanks, Michelle Caragol, Colorado USA
You're the best. I am all fired up now. I have been doing this for years and it has to be better each year. That becomes daunting. I love your ideas for our Scavenger Hunt.
