It takes a lot of practice and effort in order to create great clues. A great treasure hunt is challenging enough to force you to think and make you struggle but without becoming too difficult and making the treasure hunters to strain for too long and eventually give up. Remember, a treasure hunt is concerned with the hunting. The treasure may be beautiful but the treasure hunts we like the most are due to the hunt. Consider all the movies about treasure hunting. If they went right to where the treasure is,, would it have been a lot of fun. Not at all. If you’re planning to offer somebody a prize, you can simply offer them the reward. If you’re planning to make an exciting treasure hunt, be focused on the hunt and do not worry over the reward.
Now that we’ve talked about how crucial it is to provide fun, interesting clues, let’s provide you with some suggestions for how to write clues. Like we said be aware of the level of difficulty of clues. It’s too easy and the hunt doesn’t have any fun But if it’s too difficult, the hunt won’t be enjoyable too. It is sometimes easy to create clues that are difficult to write. It is commonplace for something to be apparent to you, since you are aware of the location of your next hint or the location of the treasure, is often not obvious to treasure hunter. It can often make sense once you have explained the situation, however they could be looking at the clue from a completely different direction.
In the end, whether or not rhyme is the issue. There is no need to rhyme your clues although I’ve found that people love ones that rhyme. They make them appear like they’re “movie like” and just adds a fun element on the questions.
Another suggestion for creating clues is to include clues inside the clue. Make sure that certain words are capitalized. must pay attention to or words that have double meanings to help find the answer. The most successful clues are typically rather complex, and not always complicated in their solutions however they are complex in their words and the way each word can help the treasure hunter in solving the mystery.
Another strategy I employ in writing my clues to try to make them Internet user-friendly. I learned this by the show National Treasure. I always thought it was amusing that, even though Ian only had a small portion of the clue it was possible to type the key words in an internet search, to see if the solution would pop up. Many times, I attempt to make a difficult clue search engine-friendly, meaning that when they type the correct item into an engine and the answer might be found.
