You can play this hunt as one big group (cooperative) or multiple smaller groups (teams). This game can be played with as many players as you like, the more the merrier - or should I say the more, the scarier.
Each team starts out with a clue location sheet and the starter clue. Each clue has a numerical answer, so if the team determines the answer is say 16 - then they look on their clue location sheet and whatever location is written for number 16 is where they look for their next clue.
If they are right they will find another clue, if they are wrong the will find a death token. For Every three death tokens a team finds one of their team members "die" and must go to "the graveyard". The graveyard is whatever you want it to be - usually it is a section of the party where they can wait with food, drink, entertainment, etc.
The hunt continues like this until all 20 clues have been solved and the final "You Win" card has been found.
There are multiple types of puzzles, games, and trivia cards that are used as cluesthroughout the hunt. Each one of clues has a numerical answer.
Players choose which one they believe is the correct answer and look it up on their clue locator sheet.
The clue locator sheet is a list from numbers 1 -50 of different locations that YOU CHOOSE beforehand.
So if players believe the answer to the question below is say 25, then they would find location 25 listed on their clue locator sheet and search their for the next clue.
NEW! We now include an easy version along with our original version of the clues. You will receive both versions with your download! This will enable you fo go through the clues and decide which set is best for your group.
Death tokens are what are found when players get an answer wrong and choose the wrong location to look for the next clue.
Technically, you don't have to include the death token element to the game. If you only have a handful of players it may not be pratical. Death tokens are an addtion that add a level of excitement to the game.
Basically it creates a penalty for getting an answer wrong, yes players can continue the game and try a different answer but they lose one of their team members - this creates a desire to try a little harder to get the answer right the first time.
OPTIONAL: Some host like to give teams a way to earn back lost players by letting them take bonus challenges during the game. These challenges are decided and created by the host. Sometimes its a game of chance, a game of skill, or more horror movie trivia. If the player or team win the challenge they also win their team mate back. Sometimes host even make this a gamble, if they win they get their teammate back, but if they lose they lose another team mate. This is completely optional, but something to think about.
