Get ready for an exhilarating treasure hunt experience! Can you complete the hunt and find the treasure? The treasure is a great venue at which we will organise food & drink for your party.

You can start anywhere you like in the New or Old Towns. All the questions are scattered around this area and the game isn't linear.


• Load the app on your phone one phone per team.

• Explore your surroundings to find 30 thrilling questions/challenges.

• Prepare for a mix of environment-related questions, brain teasers, puzzles, and trivia.

• Each challenge is worth 50 points, but you only have 5 minutes to conquer it.

• There are some bonus questions each worth double points.

• Some challenges are tougher than others, so be ready for a real test of your skills.

• With a time limit of 2 hours, you’ll need to be quick and plan an efficient route to tackle as many questions as possible.

• At the end you will reveal your treasure - a great venue for your party!

• If you are playing in teams see your scores on a live leader board and purchase weapons to slow other teams down!


• Mobile Phones: Make sure each team has a fully charged mobile phone up to 50% battery usage during the game and some data. You’ll need an internet connection or data to initially download the game, but subsequent connections will be required only for occasional photo downloads and uploads.

• Starting: To begin, access the game using the provided link or QR code. Before diving in, carefully read the instructions on how to play.

• Time: The game is set for 2 hours which starts as soon as you have read the instructions and are prompted to ‘Start game’ there is a warning written above this button.

• Finishing: The game ends if a team either:

• Completes all the questions.

• The time runs out.

• After finishing, you’ll receive directions to the end venue for a well-deserved celebration.

Prepare yourselves for an unforgettable adventure filled with challenges, competition,

and the thrill of the hunt. Good luck!


• Choose your number of people every 4 people make a team, played on 1 phone.

•  After purchase email info@ggtreasurehunts.com to finalise the details of your event, this can be played on any day and there are several options for what venue to end and what food & drink if any to have.

    Honestly so brilliantly done, from the general knowledge, to the navigation and the picture clues. It’s a great way to explore the city we live in. We have broken this up to enjoy across a few weekends.
