We’re a family of four with a 13 year old and a 11 year old. Mum was map reader, dad reminded kids about clues, and kids were hunting for clues.”
As a family with children ages 6 & 8 and friends visiting for the weekend it was enjoyed by everyone. The clues were all very varied and enjoyable to solve and the children were able to join in.
