The concept of the scavenger hunts is simple: in teams of two to six people, you’ll be provided a clue sheet that takes you to different locations in a given area. Each location will have riddles for you to solve, and the team with the most correct answers wins a glorious prize at the end of the game.

Sounds easy enough, but don’t underestimate the riddles - they were designed to be challenging and tricky to solve; so much so that even having prior knowledge of the scavenger hunt location could be a hindrance.
