Secret Agent / Spy Treasure Hunt

I created this printable secret agent / spy treasure hunt because what is a spy or secret agent without a top secret assignment?

This treasure hunt is packed full of a variety of different clues and puzzles for the guests to solve.  I have included 2 different sets of clues one is a bit easier than the other.  You can choose which one is best for the little spies attending your party.

The best part about this treasure hunt is that IT CAN BE PLAYED ANYWHERE! I created it so that you can determine the hiding spots without having to change the clues or create new clues for each different location. 

What does the printable secret agent / spy treasure hunt include?

2 Sets of 10 different spy / secret agent clues plus winners card These clues are all different. No two clues are solved the same way. Some of the clues require players to use Morse code, some the cipher wheel, invisible ink, reading in mirrors, logic skills, riddles, fingerprint analysis, and more. 

When I first put out my spy treasure hunt I had so many requests for clues that were either easier or harder.  So now I have included 2 different sets of clues, one more difficult than the other so that you can decide which one is best for your players. 

NOTE: Each clue measure 5x7  and two clues print out per page.


Every clue in this hunt has a numerical answer between the numbers 1-30.  When the player figures out the answer to the clue they look up that number on the clue locator sheet (provided)  to determine where there next clue is hidden. 

You will fill this sheet out beforehand, this is where you write in all the hiding locations.  There is a hiding guide included to instruct you how to do this. Basically if the answer to a clue is number 9.  Then on the key locator you would write the location you hid the next clue next to the number 9.  There are only 10 hiding locations needed.  The rest should be filled in for decoys though. 

Secret Agent / Spy Treasure Hunt

Above is two sample clue. The first clue is a line maze.  The children must determine which of the 5 paths will lead the spy to the bad guy.  Each path has a different number.  The correct number will lead them to there next clue using the key locator (seen at top)

The second clue requires the use of the included decoder wheel to decode the mystery message. Once deciphered the clue reads: LOCATOR NUMBER TWO

When they decode this message it will lead them to clue location two on the key locator. This is where they will find the next spy clue.

Above is two sample clue from the slightly harder set. The first clue a word search with a twist. All the letters in the word search are in code.  The players must use their cipher wheels (included) to determine what all the words are in code.  Then they must find them in the word search and color them in.

Once all the words are colored in it is discovered that they form the shape of a number.  This is the number that they will look up on the key locator to determine where their clue is hidden.

The second clue involves the kids using their power of observation. There are 19 sets of fingerprints.  All of the fingerprints have a double except one.  Players must determine which one of the prints is the oddball.  It's number will lead them to the next clue.

Where can this hunt be played?
That’s one of the best parts. This hunt can be played anywhere (indoors, outdoors, ANYWHERE!). this is because YOU decide where the clues are hidden. See Key Locator description above for how this works.

Is this a cooperative game or can it be competitive?
You can play this treasure hunt as either cooperative (all players working together to reach the treasure), or as a competitive game (players are divided into smaller teams or individuals and they complete with each other to be the first to the treasure). You could also choose to play in small teams or individuals but have a treasure for each so that everyone wins.

How does this work?
The answer to each clue is a number between 1-30. Once they figure out the answer to the clue they look at the number that matches it on the Key locator sheet. Next to that number will be the place where they will find the next clue. You fill in the entire sheet beforehand.

If you want to play with competing teams instead of one cooperative group you can simply print out as many copies of the clues as you have teams and hide each teams set of clues in different locations from the other teams. This means that even though each team would be solving the same set of clues they would all be leading to different locations and they all have different Key locators.
