The Great Christmas Scavenger Hunt Caper Review
I was able to get a copy of The Great Christmas Scavenger Hunt Caper to review before Christmas. It is not the usual scavenger hunt you might play, but a mix of scavenger hunt, treasure hunt, and almost like the game "Clue."
To play, you must print out all the game pieces and hide them within a playing area. Players are divided into teams and you must discover who kidnapped Santa, how they kidnapped him, and where the culprit elf is hiding. Along the way, you can find point card and situation cards. Point cards can be used to buy clues from other teams. Situation cards can make the game funnier by the situations on the card, and the player must act the situation out.
For my kids, ages 8, 11, and 15, this game got mixed reviews. The preparation can be time consuming...everything needs to be cut out and placed in individual envelopes, then those envelopes need to be hidden throughout the play area. Also, since there are so many envelopes, my younger boys got tired of looking for the "right" envelope so they can win! Older kids or adults might enjoy it more...and maybe if there was an easier way to win? I'm not sure. Overall, it was fun because we were playing together.
Now, just because Christmas is over, that doesn't mean there isn't fun to be had. Party Games Plus has 1000's of party games that you can download immediately and start playing. There are party game theme ideas, printable birthday games, and even games like Minute to Win It!
