Story

Hi! My name is Micah. I like to make things.

Years back β€” I had a summer job during college working in Alaska as a commercial fisherman. We found ourselves fishing for hours on end, but when we rested β€” we did our best to have fun around the peninsula where we lived (this was "pre-iPhone" β€” with little access to internet β€” I might add).

To spice things up, I created "treasure hunts" for my fellow fisherman (as seen in the picture, I used to "dress up" and perform "characters" at different milestones throughout the treasure hunt) ... I loved constructing the journey, laying out the clues, and most importantly β€” seeing the reactions on my friends' faces!

Time warp to 2020: my wife and I are quarantined in Los Angeles with our four year old, and every week he asks me "Is it Halloween yet? Can we do Halloween now?" I thought about it for awhile and came to the conclusion β€” why not make it "spooky" ... all year round?

Thus, the idea for Spooky Treasure Hunt was born!

I did some research online about how others were offering "treasure hunts" or "scavenger hunts" ... and I found some cool options, but none were exactly what I was looking for:
There were some nifty boxed-ones that you could purchase for a substantial amount of money, but if I was going to build something β€” I wanted to create something more accessible for those who are financially impacted during this global pandemic (not to mention the complexity, time and uncertainty involved with manufacturing and shipping physical products around the world ...)There were certainly hunts that you could download and print / cut out, but with some β€” design felt like more of an afterthought, and with others β€” they didn't have enough clues, etc.Finally, I didn't find a treasure hunt that was adorably spooky enough (or had a fun theme about finding a goblin's gold ...)
So I decided to build my own β€” happy hunting! πŸ”Ž
