This printable treasure hunt includes a variety of clues made up of trivia, puzzles, and games. Each clue leads to the next until all 16 are solved and players find the "treasure" or "die" trying. The treasure can be whatever you want it to be, or just bragging rights. This hunt is perfect for a theme party or just true fans. It will be the highlight of the party!
NEW! We now offer a mini Stranger Things Hunt that features 8 easier clues - clues you don't have to be familiar with the show to solve. See bottom of the page for details!
One of the most unique things about our treasure hunts is that YOU decide where the hiding locations. That means you can play ANYWHERE!
This game can be played cooperatively( all in one group) or competitively, where teams compete against each other. This hunt can be played with as many players as you want - the more the better!
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 Creature token. For Every three creature 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 clues throughout 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.
The way that we created this Stranger Things treasure hunt was so that host could set it up anywhere, and wouldn't have to depend on using generic hiding places. So if your event is taking place at home, or in the woods, in a cave, or on a train, in a school, or across an entire town - you can play this ANYWHERE.
There are 16 hiding places where clues will be hidden, the other 44 spaces are for death tokens to be hidden. Once you determine your sixty hiding locations you can edit this sheet and type them in. Then you simply follow our instructions as to which number locations you hide each clue and each token. Voila - you are ready to start the hunt!
Creature 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 creature token element to the game. If you only have a handful of players it may not be practical. Creature tokens are an addition 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 Stranger Things 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.
