Treasure Hunt!

Pirate ship image from Treasure Hunt mystery gift

Treasure Hunt! is a pirate-themed mystery that unfolds through a series of personalized letters, objects, documents and clues. The adventure begins with a letter from half-way around the world, a strange key and a note from a long-dead pirate who happens to be your kid’s Great-Great-Great-Great-Great-Great Grandfather. The characters in the mystery send clues to help kids find their long-lost treasure. But you never know who you can trust, right matey? There are ciphers to crack, puzzles to solve and double-crossing pirates with schemes of their own. Who’s to know when a pirate’s telling the truth, yaarr?

Ages 8 and up, or 6-7 with help from an adult. Great for girls and boys.

Mail Order Mysteries are not for children under three. Small parts could present a choking hazard.

So much fun!

I've had my kids convinced that I'm a pirate since they were tiny. Instead of going to work 3rd shift, they often think I'm off sailing the seas! I bring them odd buttons or trinkets with an adventure story about how I acquired it. This mystery was a great way to include them on my "adventures" and gave them a reason to check the mailbox. We still haven't finished the whole thing, but have had a blast so far!

Oh Wow, I am enjoying this more than they are and that is ok!

I am working on the codes and waiting for the next letter. The kids are enjoying it to, but I am. I may buy the next one for myself and not share. If you have had the pirate mystery, you know.

Grandkids loved it

The mystery was well done and kept the kids guessing. The quality is very nice and the maps and puzzles, and real looking documents where high quality.
