OPERATION OUR TOWN SCAVENGER HUNT GAME – a perfect summer party game

Scavenger Hunt Games - Downloadable - photo of team having funOperation Our Town scavenger hunt was a HUGE success at my family reunion!! We ALL – everyone – had a great time. The interaction was exactly what was needed. You learn a lot about people through such activities. I can’t wait to try another one of your hunts. By the way I liked to read what others thought about the product before buying and I love that you communicate with your audience – it adds such a personal touch! Wonderful! – Andrea Johnson

A DEADLY INCENTIVE  – a murder mystery game for large groups

We did “A Deadly Incentive” as a fundraiser for the Foundation and it was a smashing success. We did have one complaint: a gal said her cheeks hurt from laughing so hard. 🙂 We love those complaints. Thanks for providing the complete package. We just love it and that’s why we’re back for more! – Ginny Reeves, President, PV Police Foundation

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN – a mystery scavenger hunt game for kids

Mystery Scavenger Hunt Game for Kids - photo of teamThe girls had a great time! It (Operation Catch Me If You Can) helped keep 8 seven and eight-year old girls busy for a sleepover party. It was great having something structured like this for the girls to do—help prevent cliques being formed and the cattiness that often occurs with little girls. This was a very entertaining party idea and very well-priced! By morning all of the girls left saying, “This was the best sleepover party ever!” Also, thank for the excellent customer service that is so often lacking in most business. – Debbie, New York mom of 5

More murder mystery games for large groups: Murder on Maui, The Demise of the Downhome Dealers, Final Cut and A Deadly Incentive 

Hawaiian Luau Murder Mystery Game - cast photoI am expecting to have a very good time with this latest one – as always!! The last one was OUTSTANDING!!! My secondary suspects really got into it and gave us even more laughs!! Thanks again for such a fun, fantastic product!! – Jeri Reeve, Our Wonderful Repeat Offender – she just keeps comin’ back for more!

OPERATION BIRTHDAY BASH – a kids’ scavenger hunt

The birthday party scavenger hunt, Operation Birthday Bash was a BLAST! Thanks again! We have ordered from y’all before and you NEVER disappoint.- Ember Mandell.  (We also have another great scavenger hunt for kids: Operation Kovert Kids.)

THE MAFIA MURDERS – our 1920’s gangster murder mystery game and one of our most popular games.

I’m sharing Janey Hudson’s newsletter for party idea inspiration as well as her testimonial.

HER TESTIMONIAL:

Gangster 1920's murder mystery game - suspect photoHi, Susan, this is kind of a long e-mail, but it’s all good, so please bear with it!

We are retirees in a community in Central Florida. A couple of years ago we did your Mafia murder mystery. At the same time, I also undertook an elaborate Italian dinner with a “speakeasy” type decor for 160 of our closest friends and neighbors. It was an absolutely SMASHING success and we vowed to do another one the next year.

Last year, someone else decided to “cook” and they decided on a German theme. I perused your offerings and couldn’t find anything I thought was appropriate, so I (sigh!) bought a “murder mystery” from another vendor because it kind of “fit” the evening’s meal. I can honestly say, it was disappointing to my husband and I because it had absolutely no “pop” to it. I was glad when the night was over.

Pirate Mardi Gras Murder Mystery Game - suspect photoThis year, before anyone else could usurp the kitchen (lol) I offered again to host a murder for a large group. My meal/city is New Orleans/Mardi Gras so Dead Man’s Chest (our pirate Mardi Gras murder mystery game) is perfect…We have already found a life size pirate cut-out which we plan to have people stand up and get their pictures taken as “pirates”.

I know this is long, but I just wanted to let you know how much fun we have with your productions and how disappointed we were when we chose another one. I guess we’ll know not to go “fishing” elsewhere for something you have. LOL. P.S. Our “extravaganzas” sell out lock, stock and barrel within about a week of posting tickets for sale! 

NEWSLETTER:

Italian Murder Mystery
Dinner, Murder and Dessert!

Uh-Oh!!!!! Somebody killed ‘da Boss! And we all know that means “somebody” has to pay, pay, pay. Please join The Beacon Terrace Players as they present a murder mystery in the infamous local Italian speakeasy, The Library, (located in the BT clubhouse) … for an evening of great food, good company, and, unfortunately, a dastardly murder. Never fear, BT neighbors, the “neighborhood” is once again made safe because of top notch detective work by the local primo gumshoes and their massive team of assistants (a/k/a dinner guests) who for one night are given the courtesy title of “The Beacon Terrace Detective Squad” (okay, they‘re the Fuzz). Justice ultimately prevails because of combined efforts and relentless sleuthing, to collaborate, solve the case, catch the bad guy and, in the end, point the long arm of the law toward WHO DONE IT!

Watch for soon to be posted announcements providing more details of this upcoming event. Expect to be waited on by your professional Beacon Terrace wait staff, entertained by The Beacon Terrace Players who will act their hearts out to grab your attention, and the BT Fuzz Division who do their best to keep the community crime free. The BT Players will be in period 1920s attire and will astound you with their trash talking mob slang. Don’t miss out on this exciting evening of fun!

Scavenger Hunt Resources to Help You Create Your Own Hunt

Here are some scavenger hunt resources to bookmark to help you create your treasure or scavenger hunt.

I like to design my scavenger hunts for multi-tasking fun where teams use their collective creativity, imagination and ingenuity to solve different types of challenges.

Here’s an example of what I mean.

City scavenger hunt

City scavenger hunt

Operation City Slickers – Our City Scavenger Hunt Game
with Photo Challenges, Items to Find and Creative Team Projects

You’ll need about 2 hours minimum for this hunt (unless you remove some challenges). Your group will be divided into teams of 3 to 10 people. Each team will receive a collection bag (knapsack, duffle bag or even a plastic shopping bag will do) containing a digital camera (or you can use one smart phone per team), the hunt itself and various supplies. They’ll then embark on the scavenger hunt, taking pictures, obtaining specific items, solving brain teasers and completing a trivia quiz. All the challenges are worth valuable points and there are some bonus point challenges as well. At the conclusion of the hunt, the teams will prepare an optional final presentation while you “grade” their challenge sheets to find the winners based on point total (award certificates are included with this hunt). THE WINNING TEAM will have had the most fun as a team while collecting the most points.

So without further ado, here are the resources I promised:
