About the Book (from the website):
“Treasure Hunt – A Book of Clues for Parties” has over 100 clues to use to create a new experience in gift giving. It has beginning and ending clues, action clues, outside clues, clues for every room in your house, and clues for the garage, game room, basement and attic. There are even a few for extra fun at Christmas! This book was designed for any party or occasion where a gift or gifts are to be given. Why just sit a person down and hand them their gifts when you can have so much more fun making them find them with clues? In most “Treasure Hunt” parties, the gifts are for a single individual, but the clues provide a sense of participation for the guests and with some of the clues, actual participation for everyone. You can also vary your “Treasure Hunt” party by alternating clues to different individuals.

I received a copy of “Treasure Hunt: A Book of Clues for Parties” to review and ever since I read it; all I can think about is planning a Treasure Hunt Party! The book gives you all of the information that you will need to plan the perfect treasure hunt party. Nancy walks you through the entire process by giving you over 100 clues to use for your parties. The clues are set up to be used for either the beginning of the treasure hunt, the middle, or the end. Nancy even gives you suggestions as to where to hide the clues!
The clues are meant to be read aloud by either the guest of honor or the other guests. They are basically written like poems or riddles. The clues are fun and meant to make everyone feel included. My favorite clues are the “action clues” where the person reading the clue has to DO something to get the next clue (i.e. sing a song, teach the other guests a dance, and other fun stuff). What’s really great about the book though is that YOU choose which clues you want to use so if you don’t think the guest of honor will feel comfortable with an action clue then just don’t use it.
To have a treasure hunt party you will only need to use a handful of clues so 100 clues will get you through many parties without ruining the suspense for guests who have participated before. I think this book would be AWESOME to use at a baby shower or wedding shower. I really dislike traditional shower games, but a treasure hunt shower would be so much fun and very unique. Obviously, it would be really great to plan a treasure hunt party for birthdays, anniversaries, or even Christmas! Both adults and kids would enjoy it!
As soon as I have a reason to throw a party, it will DEFINITELY be a Treasure Hunt party and I promise to blog about it! Can you tell that I’m excited?! LOL I love stuff like this!
