PLAYING THE game
Each box contains a letter on the back of a travel poster from Lucy that gives instructions on how to get started and usually a website to start the adventure.
Be sure you type the website address exactly the way it appears in the letter, including the .com. Some of our players try to Google, or search, for the web address instead of typing it into the address bar. Google won’t always provide the correct link as its results. Here are links to the most current versions of our boxes:
- Chicago: no link required to start
- Iceland: no link required to start
- Las Vegas
- Machu Picchu: no link required to start
- Mexico City
- Mont St Michel
- San Francisco: no link required to start
- St. Petersburg
- US National Parks : no link required to start
- Toronto: use the web addresses from the postcards
- Washington DC

We recommend our games for 1 - 8 players, though more can certainly play. We have large groups gather at libraries to play together and it’s a great way to collaborate with others.
We recommend for ages 10+ (with the help from an adult). Our content is always family friendly (no murders or violence) but the game is challenging and designed for adults.
We provide hints and answers along the way so you don’t get frustrated. We also have a very active Finders Seekers User Group available on Facebook if you’d like to collaborate with other Seekers. To join, visit: https://www.facebook.com/groups/785630728261954
Yes, most of our boxes require access to the Internet. This is how we provide information for puzzles, hints and verify that you have the answer correct.
We are continually streamlining our process to ensure items aren’t missed. However, on occasion, we make a mistake. But no worries, we will make it right. Just email us at and let us know what you need.
An extra space or character in your answer may cause the website to reject your answer, even if it appears correct. Reload the page and re-enter the answer and it should work. Sometimes a browser may also cache an incorrect answer if attempted several times. Again, reload the page and try entering the answer again.
