Editor's Review

Go on a scavenger hunt indoors, outdoors, and in the car with Family Scavenger Hunt in a Box and Scavenger Hunt Road Trip! games. 

Family Scavenger Hunt in a Box includes four different game versions: kids indoors, kids outdoors, adults indoors, and adults outdoors. The kids games are for ages 6-11, while the adults versions are more challenging for ages 12 and up. You can tailor this game based on the ages of players and the weather. You could even do a kids versus adults scavenger hunt challenge. There are 70 cards for each challenge plus instructions. No matter which version you play, draw 10 cards from the appropriate card deck. The kids cards have a picture of the object and the word, while the adult cards only have words. Players or teams try to find the items on their cards as quickly as possible, and the first player or team to find all their items wins that round. The player or team that wins the most rounds wins the game. 

Scavenger Hunt Road Trip! is an in-the-car version of Family Scavenger Hunt. It comes with 110 cards, a scorepad, a pencil, and instructions. Each player – not the driver – gets eight cards and looks out the window to find an item on their cards. If you find one, yell it out, score a point on the scorepad, and discard that card. Draw a new card so that you always have eight cards in your hand and look out the window again. The first player to reach 10 points – or some other benchmark you’ve decided on in advance, such as playing until you stop for gas – wins! This game is for ages 6 and up, but there are alternate rules for younger players.
