Printable Treasure Hunt

This printable treasure hunt is perfect for a Doctor Themed party.  It features 10 different and engaging clues that players must solve - each clue leading to the next.

The great thing about this game is that it is specially designed so that YOU decide the hiding locations.  That means you can play it anywhere.  

No one else makes treasure hunts like ours.  If you would like see the full details of how the hunt works and check out some sample clues for this hunt click on the picture on the left.

Companion Journals

When guests arrive, give them each their own Companion journal.  Buy some mini composition books while at Dollar Tree and recover them with more Tardis blue paper.  You can emboss panels onto the paper before attaching it or glue six rectangles to the cover and use modgepodge to affix a Tardis blue tissue paper cover for a crinkly leather look. Personalize the inside with each guests name in circular Gallifreyan

Who's the doctor?

It takes one to know one. A past Doctor incarnation has shown up but which one? Help him rediscover himself. Doctor who?

 Give each guest a spotter's guide to the Doctor. One index cards write the numbers 1-12. Fold each card in half and drop them in a hat (fezzes are cool). One guest will be the Doctor. He draws a card and faces the others. The doctor reveals the card to the crowd but does not look. He then may ask up to 10 yes-or-no questions to learn who he is. When ready he or she may guess their regeneration. 

Points are awarded in how few questions are needed for the person to answer correctly.  Each question is worth one point, and they may make only one guess after each question.  If they do not guess correctly after 10 guesses they receive 12 points. 

Once a players turn is over (they guess correctly or they run out of questions) it is the next persons turn.

Play as many rounds as you want as long as each player as an equal amount of turns.  The player with the least amount of points at the end wins!

HAts off to the doctor

Though not the first time a companion has questioned his fashion sense, River's reaction to the Doctor's new accessory was perhaps the most dramatic. So in honor of one of our best-loved companions Grab your weapon and let's begin.

Gather all your favorite old hats (a fez, a Stetson and a top hat are musts!). You can arm your guests with anything from a nerf weapon (water or foam) to a paintball gun. Would-be companions can take turn shooting the hats off a table, porch railing or row of boxes.

For a real challenge, give each guest a water gun filled with colored water (from food coloring or paint). Make sure each guest has a different color. This works best with a white hat, a white Fez would be perfect! Throw the hat in the air and players must try and hit it skeet style with their water gun. Do this multiple time.  The player whose color shows up most on the hat wins!  


Perhaps the number one most important skill in keeping pace with the Doctor is, well, keeping pace with the Doctor. Between Cybermen, Daleks, Autons and a hundred other species the Doctor does a LOT of running. You have to be able to keep up.

This is about as simple as it comes. A  footrace among friends...and foes. Choose some people (or enlist volunteers before the party) to play enemies and either follow at the alien race's speed or pop out at various places along the track, forcing runners to alter their path or be caught. You can also complicate it further by adding obstacles racers must make it through. 

To add to the fun have the enemies wear mask from the show. You can find an amazing array of FREE Doctor Who masks to print HERE! Don't just print the monster's either. The Doctor and his Companions can be used for the game below and other items can be taped around the room as extra scene setters.

Companion Costume OpP

Every companion has their own unique flare. Jackets, hats, Flannel, Nightgowns, you never know what you will wear when the Doctor comes a-calling. 

Time for a Photo-Op. Take a laundry basket and raid the Tardis Closet for an array of options, then have guests mix and match and make up their favorite looks for a shot in front of the TARDIS door. Will it be a leather jacket over hospital scrubs or a union jack? A poodle skirt with micro-explosive earrings? Suspenders? Get crazy, sexy, silly but whatever you do: DON'T BLINK!

It's a Probe!

After countless centuries of relying on the Doctor for all things sonic, Companions have started to get wise and come up with their own sonic devices. From Captain Jack's Sonic blaster to Amy's "probe", companions have come a long way. You want to compete, then it's time to even the playing field with your own sonic screwdriver.

Start by handing out a mini led flashlight to each guest. These can be purchased in an array of colors at Dollar Tree. You will need a mix of hardware (nuts, washers, copper wire, etc.), colored marbles/glass vase fillers, and a hot glue gun.  Glue a large washer to the lens of the flashlight. Add a series of nuts, tubing, piping or coiled wiring. You want to be sure the light can still pass through to the end. Size is entirely up to you. Electrical tape may be wrapped around the column to add depth, security and a pop of color. On the very end, glue a stone of your choice of color. Wait for the glue to dry and get ready to sonic!

Kiss and Tell

Break out the bottle and the Hallucinogenic lipstick! Players sit in a circle with a bottle in the middle like in the game spin the bottle.

This spinner paints their lips in their favorite (red) shade of Hallucinogenic lipstick and gives the bottle their best. Whoever it points to they must kiss on the lips or cheek and whisper a secret hallucination into their ear.

The kissed is now trapped in the dream until kissed again or the bottle lands on them again or the game ends. They must ACT like they are living whatever the whisperer told them (they could be turned into a chicken, enjoying a day at the beach or trapped at a space concert with Lady Gaga's great great great granddaughter!).

Play passes to the left and the game continues until everyone has have spun twice. If a person does not want to put on the lipstick and spin they have the option to pass.  

If you think your group will have a hard time coming up with fun hallucinations then you can create them beforehand and write them on slips of paper that the spinner can draw out of a hat before their turn.

Say What?

This is a quote-off. Divide players into two teams, being sure there are true Whovians on both sides. On a index card, write an iconic quote from the series. In parenthesis cite the speaker. Continue writing quotes until you have a decent stack. These can be infamous and unmistakable like "Exterminate!" or "Are you my mommy?" or more obscure such as "The celery turns purple in the presence of certain gases" or "They eat they people of Turkey like savages!". Shuffle and place quote-down between the teams. One team draws a card and reads the quote aloud, then the other team must guess the speaker. Reading it in the speaker's voice is not necessary but is most likely to occur (try reading Hello, Sweetie without instantly channeling River). First team to 20 points wins. Here are some quotes to get you started:

"Allons-Y Alonso" (10th Doctor)

“There's something that doesn't make sense. Let's go and poke it with a stick.” (11th Doctor)

"You want weapons? We're in a library. Books are the best weapon in the world. This room's the greatest arsenal we could have. Arm yourself!" (10th Doctor)

"This is not war - this is pest control! " (Dalek Sec)

"We have no need for comfy chairs" (Angel Bob)

"I think you call me... Sexy?" (Idris/Tardis)

"Fantastic!" (9th Doctor)

"If you're an alien, why do you sound like you're from the North?" (Rose Tyler)

Famous Last Words

I'm really glad that worked. Those would have been terrible last words.  - Ninth Doctor

Though some special days everyone lives, that hasn't always been the case. See if you and your friends can identify these famous last words from Doctor Who. Every last line from every Who's Who in the Whoniverse can be found here. Jot your faves on index cards and challenge your friends. 


Another alternative (we know how the Doctor enjoys a good choice) to the quote quizzes above, this game plays more like hangman and gets everyone involved. Pull out a large dry-erase board and markers. One player will be the marker and they have quite a job.

Choose one of the great Doctor Who speeches (it helps to have them written down on cards for reference., especially for non- or new whovians). Draw blanks as in Hangman, but this time each blank is a word and not a letter. Longer lines for longer words will help both guessers and the marker later. Be sure to leave a space at the top for the Tardis.

Players try to guess a word in the quote. If it's there, the marker writes the word in all the spaces it appears. If not, the marker draws a piece of the Tardis (top, bottom, 2 sides, 8 panels and a beacon for a total of 13 segments to a loss - 1 for each Doctor!).

 I've included an example speech below to get you started.  Words in bold are the ones that can be removed.  One idea is to write or print out a few speeches onto poster board.  Where the bold words are draw a rectangle instead - use the same colors for words that are the same. 

“I have lived a long life, and I have seen a few things. I walked away from the Last Great Time War. I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment, until nothing remained; no time, no space. Just me. I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a madman. I watched universes freeze and creations burn. I have seen things you wouldn't believe, I have lost things you will never understand. And I know things, secrets that must never be told, knowledge that must never be spoken. Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze! So come on then! Take it! Take it all, baby! Have it! You have it all!”

Doctor who party game ideas
Easter Egg Hunt

Everyone likes Easter eggs, especially the Doctor and Martha. But to find these goodies you have to be a true Whovian. The host will scatter Doctor Who references around the party before guests arrive. Some will be obvious (a Tardis door) others less so (a key on a string atop a manilla envelope?).

Encourage guests to write down all the Whovian references they see (or think they see) in their companion logs. They may surprise you by finding clues you didn't even realize you'd done, like the one Satsuma/orange in the fruit bowl or the Weeping Angel in the front lawn (wait, was that there before?).

Whoever spots the most references wins. Other great ideas include: 17 DVDs on the shelf, a pair of stategically-placed red pumps, almost anything Christmas or UK, a small square box of about head size, any Van Gogh art or sunflowers, roman soldiers or wooden dolls. Have fun!

Doctor who party food ideas

It's not a party without a proper feast so here are some ideas for spread to stand apart in time and space. 

Sontaran Spuds - Cut a potato in half and stand each on the cut end. Pare two small circles for eyes and a strip for the   mouth. Place in individual foil cups, top with foil "helmets" and bake in the heat of battle (or an oven).

Fierce French Bread Pizza - Cut thick slices of french bread and top with pizza sauce and cheese then decorate with topping to create your favorite villain. For Zygons, put three rows of mini-pepperonis up the center and along the sides for suckers and use pieces of red bell pepper for eyes and a mouth. Daleks get mini cheese circles in rows down the bottom, a black olive collar, mushroom lights and hang a black olive on a long green pepper for the "plunger". Use Mushroom slices and black olives for Cybermen, etc.

Bowtie Pasta Salad - with cherry tomato fezzes (cut in half), Atraxi eyeballs (Push a piece of black olive into a slice of string cheese) and the Trees of the Vashta Nerada (broccoli)

Dalek cupcakes - Cut the tops off cupcakes and turn upside down. Top with a mini muffin or the center of the top. Frost in the color of your choice then decorate with white chocolate chip or MnM rivets, a pretzel plunger, etc.

Fish Fingers and Custard - Honey Grahams and Vanilla pudding

Jammie Dodgers - Make a batch of sugar cookies, cutting a small circle from the center of half of them. Once cooled, spread raspberry preserves on a whole cookie and top with a cut one so the jelly shows through.

Lady Cassandra Cookies - Roll the sugar cookie centers from above (or fresh cookie dough) into a ball, then roll out and cut rectangular cookies. Stretch the edges of the dough for nips and tucks. Bake and cool, Then draw on an edible marker face.

Adipose Marshmallows - Perhaps the most adorable (and fatty) dessert. Attach four mini marshmallows (2 arms, 2 legs) to a large one using white frosting and let harden. Add a face using edible makers or piping gel

Banana Splits - The real reason you should always bring a banana to a party!

Don’t forget to make take home favors bags with Cyberman ear fobs (Hershey’s Kisses), Rolo Fezzes, and Jelly Babies (Gummy Bears)!
