Please due to covid be patient with the Pubs we work with, they have had a really tough year and might be reluctant with discounts. It will also be difficult for us to guarantee to book you any tables this Spring and Summer because it is going to be very busy. Please be understanding and we will try our best to cater to your needs but book ahead of time to guarantee us reserving you a place at the pub. :) Also all booking are flexible so if we can't book you a place at the pub, we can find a date for you that we can all do. :)

The Great Game Treasure Hunt Newcastle is a unique outdoor treasure hunt. Perfect to do whilst isolating, in order to get outdoors and exercise during these times, especially when you're stuck for something to do! NHS guidelines say it safe to go on walks outside and are encouraging exercise that doesn't involve close face to face contact with strangers. If you can't go abroad on holiday why not do a treasure hunt at home?

    Booked this to try something different. I had emailed them beforehand in regards to the pub and they were very quick at getting back to me and letting me know the pub wouldn't be open until May. We still decided to do the hunt without the pub and go there another day once open. You receive your pack in the post with everything you need. Only thing when starting the hunt. Straightaway, one of the clues and the direction to go was closed off (assuming due to Covid)..Wasn't too much of an issue though as we just jumped to the next clue but it did affect the picture finding as we couldn't see the sign we needed! The area covered was larger than I had expected so be prepared to walk. All in all was a good day out and something different to do. Would recommend.
