I created this printable spy / secret agent themed treasure hunt because what is a spy / secret agent party without a top secret assignment? This Top Secret assignment is great for ages 7 and up (reading is required). It comes in two versions so you can choose which challenge level best fits your young players.
This treasure hunt is packed full of a variety of different clues and puzzles for the guests to solve. I have included 2 different sets of clues one is a bit easier than the other. You can choose which one is best for the little spies attending your party.
The best part about this treasure hunt is that IT CAN BE PLAYED ANYWHERE! I created it so that you can determine the hiding spots! I created the clues, you decide the hiding locations. How? This hunt is editable, so all you have to do is type in the hiding locations that you want and they will automatically be integrated onto the clues. Then simply print and play!
This printable party game kit includes two sets of spy / secret agent clues plus MISSION COMPLETE card. The set includes a treasure hunt that is best for ages 6-10, and another that is best for ages 9-14. You decide which is best for your crowd.
Both sets come in an editable PDF file. The clues are all set up, all you have to do is type in the hiding locations, the file will transfer those into the clue for you!
These clues are all different. No two clues are solved the same way. Some of the clues require players to use Morse code, some the cipher wheel, invisible ink, decoder disk, logic skills, riddles, fingerprint analysis, and more.
Above is what the clue appears like before you edit it with your clue location. When you open the file the instructions you are given to edit the clue will look like:
You simply click in the circles to type out what hiding location that clue will lead to, like this:
The location you typed in the circles will automatically integrate itself onto the clue and the ready-to-print clue will look like this:
Also included in the hunt is a decoder wheel. The decoder wheel is made up of two circles that you print out a bigger one and a smaller one. You place the smaller one on top of the larger one and turn it to create or decode secret messages.
This can be used on a number of clues provided, or you can choose to forgo it all together. To use simply determine your location and use the wheel to put it in code, then players will need to use it to decode the location.
Kids LOVE how cool the decoder disk (seen below) and the cipher wheel are. After the party they can use them to create their own messages! These also make excellent party favors.
Where can this hunt be played?
That’s one of the best parts. This hunt can be played anywhere (indoors, outdoors, ANYWHERE!). this is because YOU decide where the clues are hidden. The first clue will be given to players, the answer to this clue will give players the location to look for the next clue, this pattern continues to they reach the end.
Is this a cooperative game or can it be competitive?
You can play this treasure hunt as either cooperative (all players working together to reach the treasure), or as a competitive game (players are divided into smaller teams or individuals and they complete with each other to be the first to the treasure). You could also choose to play in small teams or individuals but have a treasure for each so that everyone wins.
How does this work?
Download the hunt and open it in adobe reader. Prompts will be given that you have to simply fill out with the locations that you plan to hide the clues. The answer (location) to the first clue is the place that you will hide the second clue, the answer (location) to the second clue is where you will hide the third clue and so forth.
Once you have edited all the clues to include your personalized location you will print out the hunt and then cut out the individual clues, place them each in their own envelope (optional) and hide them accordingly.
If you want to play with competing teams instead of one cooperative group you can simply edit and print out as many copies of the clues as you have teams and hide each teams set of clues in different locations from the other teams. This means that even though each team would be solving the same set of clues the answers (locations) would be different for each team.
What age is the secret agent / spy treasure hunt suited for?
