Our exclusive Greek Mythology trivia treasure hunt is the perfect party game to test you and your guest knowledge of the Gods and Goddesses and their many saga's.....It is also a hit in classrooms studying the great myths. Teachers rave about how into the students got - and parents are psyched how perfect it was for their child's Greek Mythology theme party or Percy Jackson Birthday.
This printable treasure hunt includes a variety of clues made up of trivia, puzzles, and games. Every clue is filled with a variety of trivia and each challenging clue leads to the next until all 8 are solved and players find the "treasure". The treasure can be whatever you want it to be, or just bragging rights.
This game can be played cooperatively (all in one group) or players can race against each other in a competitive version. Once a player/team solves one clue it will provide the clue to where to find the next.
We created this Greek Mythology trivia treasure hunt using our signature unique style that allows the host to be able set it up anywhere without having to use generic hiding places. So whether your event is taking place at home, or in the woods, in a cave, on a train, in a school, or across an entire town - you can play this ANYWHERE.
Each team starts out with a Clue Master which you fill in ahead of time to let players know what locations might be hiding a clue. There are 8 hiding places where clues will be hidden, the other 42 spaces are for Try Again cards to be hidden. Once you determine 50 hiding locations you can edit this sheet and type them in. Then you simply follow our instructions as to which number locations you hide each clue and each Try Again card. Voila - you are ready to start the hunt!
How do the players use the Clue Master?
The answer to each clue is a number, so when players solve a clue (or think they solved the clue) they then look up that number on their Clue Master. If they believe the answer to a clue is 4, they look to see what location is listed next to number 4 on their Clue Master - they then go to that location and search to find their next clue.
If they are correct they will find the next clue there, if they are wrong they will be lead to a decoy location where they will find a Try Again card - see TRY AGAIN section below.
This continues until they have solved all 8 challenge clues. The last clue will lead to the the YOU WIN card and any treasure you choose to use for the grand prize!
ALTERNATIVE TO HIDING CLUES: Instead of hiding spots you can tape numbered envelopes to a wall. Players solve the clues as they normally would, but the envelopes would replace the hiding locations. If they solve the clue correctly the envelope they choose will have the next clue. If they choose the incorrect answer then the envelope they open will contain consequence cards with funny or challenging dares players must perform in order to try again. The envelope that is the correct answer to the final clue will hold a message telling where the treasure is hidden.
ALTERNATIVE TO TREASURE HUNT: Instead of hiding the clues and having players find each clue one at a time you can divide your players into teams and give them each all 8 clues at once. The first team to get the 8 numbered code (the answers to each of the clues) correct first wins!
Try Again cards are what are found when players get an answer wrong and choose the wrong location to look for the next clue.
A fun thing to do is add a consequence for every card found. Some choose a silly action or other like to make a team eliminate a player for each wrong answer.
Technically, you don't have to include the Try Again element to the game. They are a fun ideas to add a level of excitement to the game and creates a desire to try a little harder to get the answer right the first time.
OPTIONAL: Some host like to give teams a way to earn back lost players by letting them take bonus challenges during the game. These challenges are decided and created by the host. Sometimes its a game of chance, a game of skill, or more Greek Mythology trivia they must answer. If the player or team win the challenge they also win their team mate back. Sometimes host even make this a gamble, if they win they get their teammate back, but if they lose they lose another team mate. Again, this is completely optional, but something to think about.
