What is Adventure Clues?
Adventure Clues is the new way to explore your city. Solve cryptic clues on our web app and you will be taken on an adventure of discovery. Simply select the trail of your choice, head to the start location, click on the link we send you and away you go.
Can we take part as separate teams?
Yes, this is one of the best ways to enjoy Adventure Clues and challenge your friends. Select add another team at checkout. To best enjoy we recommend a maximum of four players per team and that you stagger your start time by 5-10 minutes so you don’t overlap.
What do the difficulty levels mean?
Easy – Easy trails are designed for children to take part.
Easy (Adult) – If this is your first time doing a cryptic trail and you’re not too confident then go for this option.
Medium (Adult) – For those that like to think cryptically and are up for a good challenge.
How to start the game?
You will receive detailed instructions by email and SMS on where to head to and how to play. You receive your unique link to use the web app. The trail is valid for 6 months and you can start the trail anytime within that period. It’s self explanatory from there on.
I can't access the web app?
It may be that the data coverage on your phone is poor, once you have good signal the there will be no problem. We provide live text help at any time so simply send us a messge and we will help.

When can I start the trail?
You can start on the day you have purchased and have 6 months to complete the trail. Look at the trail details to see what time is best to start as some might be better done in the evening if you plan to have a break along the way in one of the bars or cafes.
Can you design a private course?

Top tips for solving
Clues are designed to be cryptic so this will require some ‘outside the box thinking’.
Clues can contain Anagrams (mixed up letters), hidden words, homonyms (words that sound like others e.g. peace and piece) and play on words amongst other little tricks 😉
Some clues are more interactive than others. Senses they may involve are sight, touch, and hearing.
Bring along some pen and paper as some clues will require some doodles and are easier to solve that way.
Search like a private eye
Look high and low at buildings street names and signs etc.
Is there a time limit?
– No, you can stop and start whenever you like within the 6 month period from purchasing your trail.
