Treasure Hunt is a popular type of game related to solving puzzles, breaking ciphers, and visiting different sights. Each puzzle leads the contestants to a certain place where the next puzzle has to be discovered or you have to overcome a challenge to get a new clue.
Treasure hunt challenges the participants intellectually and physically. They learn to use each other's strengths, think creatively and act as a team. Each team must solve the puzzles that are difficult to solve on their own. Of great importance are mapping skills, observation and resourcefulness. Participants have scant time, information, and with little resources to grasp the best ideas, choose an action plan, and evaluate its effectiveness. When unforeseen circumstances require it, the teams must be flexible enough and ready for rapid reaction.
