How the game works

The game works like a Whatsapp Group chat with a pirate character who leads each team around Bath. They have to figure out cryptic clues by finding things in the city.

Everyone in a team can access their link on their own phones. They all see each others' messages just like a group chat.

Demo game: Treasure Hunt Bath

Here’s a demo game (open on your phone):

Split into teams of 6

For big groups we suggest breaking into teams of up to 6.

Each team should start 5 minutes apart. That way they aren’t on each others' toes but they’ll see each other at any planned breaks along the way.

Duration & breaks

The game takes 1½–2½ hours depending on breaks.

We recommend planning in a break at one of Bath’s excellent venues along the way.

Here’s a map of Bath showing the full route (no spoilers!):

Start and end points

The game starts at the front of Bath Abbey and takes them on a fixed route that we’ve carefully designed.

It ends at Sally Lunn’s House.

Make it a competition

When each team finishes, they are awarded a score.

To get a perfect score, they’d need to get every clue right first time with no hints.

As each team finishes, their score will appear on your leaderboard. When all teams are finished, you can refresh the leaderboard to see who won.

We suggest competing on score rather than time as it’s nicer to ṫake your time rather than rushing.

After much planning, prep and date changes (thanks Paul for your flexibility), we decided to start the treasure hunt on the hottest day of the year and it turned out to be the perfect activity for a little team building! With clear instructions and real time location information you couldn’t go wrong! The clues were the right mix of taxing to add to the challenge and easy to keep our attention. The hunt helped us see parts of Bath that we wouldn’t usually notice and it was great to learn new things about a local place. It was particularly good that the tour is self-paced, so lots of refreshment stops on the way! Would recommend this to anyone who likes a little challenge, along with a bit of fun!

“This was such a brilliant experience the technology was simple and easy to use. We had so much fun, the clues were just the the right level of challenge and the distance was very easy. The route was very interesting learnt lots about Bath and it was a perfect way to get introduced to a new city or just have a pleasant walk with your partner or fiends. Well worth the money! Cant wait to try the other cities.”
