Hi Nikki, I must admit that I am not computer savvy and rely mostly on my 16 year old son to get me out of most jams I find myself in :) I was able to access the treasure hunt and Easter bonus hunt (which was awesome by the way) As for the hunt, my family is big on these type of events and I have been doing some variety for years.

Your kit was awesome, it saved me countless hours on the planning end and everyone really had fun. We do this event each Easter for my husband’s family. There are 4 brothers and we divide them into teams for the hunt. This was by far the most organized and stress free event. We did find that at the end only having one team retrieve the treasure map was a problem as two teams solved the puzzle simultaneously.

This is a great service and I truly am grateful that I found your web site.

p.s. the egg challenge was by far the most entertaining…..

Hi Nikki, thank you very much for all the follow-up emails and also for making that customization website available. It’s been REALLY EASY to plan this treasure hunt with all your materials and the website.
My son’s 7th birthday party was this past Saturday and ran the pirate-themed treasure hunt. The kids ranged in age from 3-8. It was great fun! The kids really enjoyed themselves and the parents seemed to enjoy watching the activities, too.
I followed your basic design, signs, and most of the games. We did the whole treasure hunt on our backyard lawn in a space of about 15 ft x 25 ft.
I really enjoyed planning this and running it, too. Your instructions were great and really easy to follow. I’m looking forward to planning another treasure hunt soon. As I mentioned earlier, all the kids had a great time and the parents really enjoyed watching the treasure hunt. I’ve already shared your Web site address with several parents. Thanks again,

Thank you for your email. Our party was yesterday and it was awesome! This was by far the best party we’ve had and required the least effort from myself (because you completed the work)! I had began to research pirate party ideas a month before I ran across your product and was skeptical about spending the money due to I had purchased another ‘kit’ and was disappointed. I am so happy now we took a chance on your product; everyone was so impressed and the children had a blast!!!

PS- Your customer service is a very nice touch!! We really appreciate you!!!!

Hi, Nikki! I have received the party planner The party will take place in Concord, North Carolina, USA, and it will be on August 5th 2006. The occasion is our 40th wedding anniversary party. The age range, I think, will be ‘no kids’, but I’m not sure about that, yet. And the theme of the treasure hunt is your pirate theme! We think it’s going to be a lot of fun!

Nikki, I got the Treasure Hunt for my Church Group. We meet once a month for a Movie Night and on the night of the Treasure Hunt we were watching ‘National Treasure’. I thought a treasure hunt would be fun to do before the movie and everyone had a great time! I didn’t have a clue on how to have a treasure hunt, so I went to the web and found you.

You did a great job of putting this game together and I will be able to use it for many more parties to come. I used some of your ideas and did few of my own and it turned out to be a huge success. Everyone is still talking about how much fun they had.

We had our hunt all indoors on Friday night, April 7th. I will attach a few of the pictures from our ‘Treasure Hunt’. Thanks for the help.

Hi Nikki,

This is a follow up and a half !

I have downloaded the pack but haven’t got into it yet, I’ve already planned a treasure hunt, drawn a map, put 9 out 14 clues together myself. This weekend is kick off time in terms of planning. The kids will be in the 5-8 years age bracket and for me having not done this before, pitching the clues and the directions at a level kids of that age will grasp with minimal adult intervention is the challenge. That’s why I took a look on the Net and found your package. So bear with me for now.

The party will be a birthday party for my daughter on 6th August , there’ll be 15 guests in the above age group. Party takes place in a rural town Co Kildare, Ireland. No theme.

We had our pirate treasure hunt game this week-end on our yacht club cruise. We did all the planning, purchasing the treasure and put it together in 3 days with very late nights, but it was a huge success. Everyone had a great time. We have many more ideas for another hunt next year when we will have more time to plan.

Thank-you for all the great ideas and for all the flexibility to the game, it was easily adaptable to our space, weather and various abilities of our players. Our youngest player was 7 years old and our oldest was in their late 60’s and they all enjoyed the challenges, puzzles and best of all finding the map and treasure.

I used the Treasure Hunt Game (’The Great Hunt for Summer Vacation’) for a group of 1st through 5th graders (about 80 kids) as part of our last day of school activities. They had a great time. Several kids asked me if we’ll be able to do it again next year. Some of the parent volunteers and teachers encouraged me to keep all the props and signs so we can use the game again. The teachers really enjoyed it.

I’m planning to use the game once again for a class party for my son this summer … probably with a different theme. It was easy to set up, and the challenge ideas were awesome. Thanks!

Hi Nikki,
our birthday scavenger hunt was a GREAT success. Your material gave me lots to choose from and I was grateful. I used the treasure map for the invitations and rolled them up to hand out. The list was on the treasure map and it was 8 items to look for or info to find and 8 were photos to take to make memories & proof of it getting done. It was a teen girl team against teen guy team and the playing field was the city of Wichita, KS so they had a certain time to be back complete or not and the one with the most done was the winner. They all came back with wonderful stories and had lots of fun. I learned though that the guy against girl wasn’t the best cause the guys were too COOL to do some of the list, but the things they did they had FUN! Whereas if they had mixed teams the girls would have persuaded them into doing everything.

While planning this double birthday party it has prompted other ideas one for our leadership Christmas party at church promoting unity & working together to accomplish a task.

Also I have talked with our the coordinator who is up for the idea of a scavenger hunt during next summer’s Family Reunion. Should be loads of fun.

Thanks for the great info! I am going to try to send a photo let me know if it makes it.

We all had a great time on the Treasure Hunt. Memorial Day Weekend was all family and fourth of July will be all of our friends and their kids. We plan to do another treasure hunt then with some different challenges. (beer drinking, doughnut eating off a clothes line with no hands allowed and a few others). Planning it was as fun as being in it. It was a great time! Thanks Again!

Hi Nikki, Many thanks for the great Treasure Hunt game planner and the supportive communications. I was asked to do a treasure hunt for a friend?s 40th and we went away to a beautiful country house for the weekend. The group included some very competitive men - so it was great to have a really strong, uncheatable structure for the treasure hunt as a basis!

Anyway - they loved it and said it was the best treasure hunt they had ever done. So I?m sure you?ll get some hits as a result. Thanks again and good wishes for your business

New Jersey, USA the evening of October 21.

I have an annual Adult Halloween Costume Party. For my parties, I like to have a theme as well as a constructed game that all can participate in. This will be my fourth party so far and I plan to have many, many more. One party, I held a Murder Mystery with a theme set back in the 50s so that everyone’s costumes were to originate in that period based on the character they portrayed during the mystery. Another, I held a Scavenger Hunt, this party was themed based on the team they were placed in. So their costumes had to correspond with their teams (vampires, ghosts, etc). Both went over really well. So I was trying to find another such game that I could use in order to have at least three games to alternate between over the upcoming years. I certainly don’t want any of my guest getting bored doing the same thing over and over again. I was really excited when I came across yours. I had been searching the internet for some ideas and one website had suggested a treasure hunt. I had decided that I would use the idea and was planning to come up with everything on my own like I had done with the scavenger hunt, but when I came across your website while looking for ideas, I was excited to see one that had already been constructed. In this way, I can work off of a party plan that I already know is successful and then change it around to suit my styles or creative ideas.

Ages range from mid 20s to 70s or even early 80s.
My theme is pirates which is why I also purchased the Pirate party planner accessory. I plan to have everyone coming as a Pirate or a Pirate’s Wench.

I have had a chance to read through it once. It looks great. I can really work from it and come up with my own unique ideas to add to it. I plan to delve into it further as I get closer to the time. It’s just a big load off my mind to know that I have a Party Game and Theme worked out and ready to be planned.

Hi Nikki, I found your site during a Google search. I had two days to plan a hunt for my 9 year old son and 6 of his friends, as a last day of school treat.

Your site really helped. I had to make some changes because I only had 7 kids, but it was a great time for all. The hunt and all the challenges took about 2 hours. I had a lot of fun putting it together too. Next time I will take more time planning.

The kids asked if we can do this next year for the last day of school. They want to make it a yearly tradition. Thanks.

Dear Nikki, I can’t tell you what a life saver you are. My Halloween invitations were all sent; advertising a Treasure Hunt and I became ill. I didn’t know how I was ever going to pull it off, but 2 days before the party I logged in and within 1 hour I had edited the clues you provided to fit our surroundings. I then emailed them to my office; printed, cut and separated. Trust me…now that I know how wonderful your made to order ”hunts’ are; we will be having them at every party. The kids and adults had a blast.

Please keep me informed of anything new, especially for adult parties. Thanks again to my new party planning best friend!

Hi, Nikki,
I wanted to let you know that my son’s birthday party was a huge success! If it wasn’t for your treasure hunt package deal with pre-printed pages and instructions, there would have been no way I could have had the birthday party at all. I started at noon planning each station and looking for things to do the challenges with, and by the time my son and his 9 junior high-age friends got to the house, I had each station planned, the cake frosted, and treasure chest hidden.

The kids really enjoyed the challenges and had a choice of movies that were pirate themed: Goonies, Pirates of the Caribbean, and National Treasure. Thank you so much for making my job easier and a great hit with the rest of the kids. You know, kids aren’t as easily impressed these days, and my younger son is asking for this for his birthday. Thanks again, I’ll check out your other add-ons for party ideas!
