Hi Nikki,
The party is being held on Memorial day week-end, at a local park, for well over 100 people. We are planning to have 2 hunts going at the same time. Captain Dead Legs and Pirates of the Vernon.
After the hunt we are having a large picnic and will ask our guests to bring a blanket for their family’s to eat on. It is going to be an introduction for our family and friends to meet the daughter my husband and are planning to adopt this summer. She is 12 but the ages of guests will run the gamut. Thank you for your interest.

The treasure hunt was a success. Had 6 teams with 6 on each team. Everyone enjoyed it. We were all dressed in pirate costumes.

Hey Nikki,

I really want to Thank You for your support during my planning stages of the treasure hunt for The Quickel’s 40th Anniversary Party! I am confident this party will be fondly reminisced time and time again, through the years, by the anniversary couple and their guests!! It was a huge success!

The tropical island theme worked really well. The island names were decided upon via 6 fond memories that Mike and Judy carry with them after 40 years of marriage. It really personalized the game! At each island station the teams found their challenge in a bottle (with sand and seashells) to replicate a ‘message in a bottle’!

I am sending over a few pictures. Hoping you will enjoy them! Let me know if you have any trouble getting them to come up. Thank you again,

We did the treasure hunt at our picnic on Sunday and it was a hit. I learned a lot, particularly about being rushed into setting it up. But all in all, everyone had a good time and they were challenged by the clues. One dad was so proud of his 9 year-old son, who figured out the five to eight puzzle while the adults were still working on it. I will definitely be thinking of clues and prizes for the treasure throughout the whole year, just to make it better next time. Thank you.

We modified the treasure hunt to fit our needs, and it was a great success.
Parents chaperoned the children in the campground so it was a nice family event. The making of the flags was a big hit. Also using the binoculars with the plank was a huge hit. Thanks again,

Thanks for your interest, Nikki. This party will be for our employees at a summer home. It is in a lakeside community near Lake MI. We have not yet decided whether to make it a pirate theme or not. Purchased both. We will be heading up there on Saturday and will be able to scope it out…

Hello Nikki, I had my treasure hunt for my 10 year old daughter?s birthday. It was a bit unorganized but hey I had to work the morning of the party. We had 17 kids over. My husband was uneasy about how we were going to keep them all entertained and having fun for 5 hours. It was great! I scattered the stations all over the place. Finding the treasure map was the best. My husband hid it in a bird house. It took them like 10 minutes to clue in. They ran around it who knows how many times. The next best thing was the actual location of the treasure chest. Instead of burying it we strung it up in a tree. Of course, no one thought of looking up. It was right in the middle of all the action throughout the whole hunt. We were laughing. It was a blast. This party took place middle of July. On this past Monday, one of kids mentions to my daughter that that was the most fun at a party. Now the other kids want treasure hunts too. Next year it will be even better since we had the trial run and it went over amazing. Thanks for your help.

Hi Nikki, we completed the treasure hunt on Saturday. I modified the game to suit the venue and the crowd as we had 15 teams participating in the hunt. Contestants had a fun time. I will be fine tuning the game mechanics to cater for a team building crowd for January.

I used your treasure hunt for my best friend’s 40th birthday party. I did not know most of the people that came; so, I was a little nervous about pulling the whole thing off. I purchased your delightfully easy-to-implement treasure hunt only about ten days before the party.

We all had so much fun! The guests were laughing constantly and couldn’t wait to reach the actual treasure. There were groups of her friends from all different backgrounds–many of whom who seemed reluctant to mix with the others. The treasure hunt was so wonderful that new friendships were formed, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses were exchanged, and my husband and I are enjoying a reputation for being the best party givers ever.

We received so many compliments, you just would be amazed. My friend for whom the party was given was at her office the next day; and, she said the people that had elected not to come were very disappointed when they heard how much fun everyone else had. One young lady upon leaving said to me that she would like to be invited to the next party I have. I had to laugh as I had never met her prior to my friend’s party.

It has been nearly a month; and, we are still the talk of the town so to speak. We live in one of those areas where everyone knows everyone else’s business whether they know you or not. I imagine you should be receiving a lot of hits from the folks in Salinas, California so they too can give the greatest party ever.

Not only did your program delight every single last party guest; but, it was easy for me to arrange as well. You have a remarkable product that will serve well for years as it is true quality. A rare find today! Thank you so very much.

Hi Nikki, Party was yesterday and was a great success. As you would expect weather very unpredictable in Ireland for Nov but we were blessed with a dry if windy day. Have taken some photos and will email them to you this week. Thanks so much for package which I must say was very thorough. The hardest part for me was trying to contain the children (21 in total) when they arrived at party and explain how the treasure hunt worked. Your website details have been passed to several parents so hopefully you will reap the rewards. Thanks again and photos will follow.

Hi Nikki, it was great! All the parents that stayed and watch were amazed and impressed. I think it went off well for the first time. I had family member and friends saying they wanted to have their own treasure hunt. Thank you, thank you, thank you for holding my hand and walking me through this step by step.

Hi Nikki, We had the party the day after we ordered your planner. It was my son’s 12th birthday party and he complained that he didn’t want to play any games, but I didn’t want 10 children running through the house for 3 hours. Our party was held in an old convent in Pennsylvania, USA. The guests were aged from 6 to 35. We had a Halloween theme, since Shane’s birthday is October 31st. The guests had to search for Uncle’s Seymour’s Last Will & Testament.
We followed all your suggestions for the challenges, teaming older players with younger ones. The puzzle pieces led the players to the chapel (we have a real chapel with stained glass windows and oak pews in our home), where we had hidden the Last Will & Testament with directions to Uncle Seymour’s most treasured worldly possessions. My two sons, my husband and I dressed in Halloween costumes and supervised the rooms. Even after one team had located the treasure, the others were having so much fun that they asked if they could complete the remaining challenges (the one with the peas seemed to be everyone’s favorite). Everyone had a great time, but what made me happiest was that my son kept thanking me the next day, telling me how much he loved me for throwing such a great party for him. Thank you for the great plans - they were well worth the money! Gratefully,

It went great. It was a summer end employee party and at the end the treasure was a chest full of $1 gold coins. Each employee got part of the treasure. I had to modify the clues to make it work at my resort but it went great. The employees loved it. The only thing I would do different would be to number the clues. A couple of groups found a clue that was not the correct one. If I numbered them, they would know that it wasn’t the right clue. However, the team that actually won the treasure hunt didn’t skip any clues so that part was kinda funny

We had a fantastic time. Our Pirate themed treasure hunt party was a ‘treasure!’ The hunt was superb and the tools that you provided made it easy to customize to our group. The children loved it! I appreciate that you kept checking with us to make sure things were progressing well as we planned the event. Again thanks!

We had the treasure hunt party on Saturday - huge success! Because I am so very busy I was not able to put the pen to paper until the day before - it was grueling but absolutely terrific. My 10 year old party girls had an absolute blast! Thanks very much,

Dear Nikki, just wanted to let you know we used your treasure hunt at a party yesterday and it was a big hit. There were twenty ten year olds and we put them in five teams which was great. It all went well and it really was enjoyed. I was happy with the product and would do it again. Thanks.

We had our treasure hunt Sat night. It was great. The students enjoyed it and so did the adults that were working the different stations. I was so relieved to have something already complete and ready to use. It was user friendly. We changed the font and copied it onto brown aged paper and it looked so real. We had middle school age and college age. They all enjoyed it. We had the stations set up among a pirate town and they had to go through the town to complete. We used it to eliminate the teams to two and the two completed a treasure hunt that was extra. Thank you for such a good product.

It is Sunday and we are recuperating from the Halloween Party we hosted for our 10 year old son. The boys loved the treasure hunt! Thank you. I had the boys eat and drink gross looking candy ( a bug, blood and vomit). I also bought 2 paint guns (they are manual and without CO2 or battery) and had them shoot at a skeleton that I painted on a piece of plywood (very easy). I am considering an adult party next year. Thank you.

Hi Nikki:
I am planning a hunt for my fianc? for his 51st birthday. We are having family (ages6+- 73) and of course his contemporaries. We should total about 40 people. He is a man with everything so when friends were telling us of cache hunts I got inspired and started my search. We live in a 15,000 sq foot home on a mountain top in Huntsville AL so many places to hide things.

His birthday is in July right after our wedding which is two days earlier so obviously lots on my plate.
I am sure I will have many questions and am grateful for this contact with you-very kind.

Warmest Regards,

Hi Nikki,

I haven’t been through the book completely, but I will let you know about my ‘party’. Every year, we rent a house with friends for a week at a time with our families. This year we will be in Lake George, NY in the third week of August. There will be seven adults and seven children (from 6 yrs old to 10 years old).

Since I am not familiar with the house or the area, I believe it will be difficult for me to completely plan the event prior to being there. I also had not thought about having players set up at different stations to ensure that the puzzle / code is solved. I had thought that I might have them all be timed to see who could solve it the fastest for the win.

I thought I would have a chest with a combination lock on it that each team would have to try to find the combination at different points on the lake so that it wouldn’t be a mystery where the treasure was but a contest to open the treasure the quickest. I will read your book and get back to you within a couple of weeks.

Thanks for your concern and emails!

Hi Nikki, You have a great product. We just might be your first customers to conduct our treasure hunt in the nude. Our events calendar had a kids’ treasure hunt scheduled for Saturday afternoon. I used some of your ideas to design the hunt, but I am saving the full version for next season when we will have better attendance in the warm weather months. The kids (ages 5,6, & 9) loved it, and I can’t wait to put on the full program next year. Thank you.

Dear Nikki, We had a great time!! I had 25 children over. We used compasses and shovels. The groups of kids went from clue to clue. Some were even tied on a balloon and placed on a pond to float around. The treasure hunt party was 3 hours long. Thanks
