Inspired Kathy’s Review:
uKloo Riddle Edition Treasure Hunt Game
My daughter wanted to play this game last week and opened up the box. She looked through the cards that were in it but we never found time to actually play it. I pulled it out when she got home from school today. The first thing I read was to put the “Hints Booklet” in a safe place. There was no booklet in the box and my daughter doesn’t have a clue where she put it. Thankfully the instructions are on the lid and for the most part the clues are very easy to figure out. But there are a few we are stumped on.
This game consists of pre-made treasure hunt “clue” cards. You set up a treasure hunt for the kids and then you provide a surprise for the end. Or alternately if they can read then they can set the game up for each other.
Here are a few examples of the clues:
- A tornado in a machine, cups go in dirty and come out clean.
- See me laugh, see me frown, check my hair to go downtown.
- It’s the place where you must toss, your dirty clothes before the wash.
- Always white, sometimes brown, builds your bones when it goes down.
This game says ages 7+ and to play it alone I guess they would need to be that old to read the cards but I honestly thing kids ages 4-8 are the perfect age to actually enjoy playing this game. We did a treasure hunt for my daughters 7th birthday and the kids ate it up. By the time they are much older than 8 or 9 they are getting to old to enjoy this the way younger kids would.
A do it yourself parent could easily put a treasure hunt like this together by searching for clue ideas on the internet. Busy overworked parents like me will appreciate that you don’t have to think or put anything together to create a fun treasure hunt by simply using these clue cards.
