We hope you're having lots of fun with Gotrovo. Here are even more ideas...

Free goodies are available to previous purchasers of Gotrovo - to download your free goodies just click here to message the Gotrovo team and give us the answer to Clue 30 of your Gotrovo Treasure Hunt Game!

 

 

Your downloadable Goodies include clues for colouring, new riddles, and even some seasonally themed clues!

 

Get your kids to colour the pictures and use them in the trail. They will love to see their own work in there. Stick them to your reusable blank cards so they can be attached to the map.

 

 

If you would prefer these additional clues to be pre-printed and in the same format as your existing Gotrovo games they are available to purchase as our Riddle Expansion pack.

 

Initial Treasure Hunt Set up

Our YouTube video provides guidance on how to set up the game and lay the trail:

Some Tips When Starting out Playing Gotrovo Treasure Hunt:

 

You don't need to apply all the sticky dots the first time you play. If your kids are desperate to get started, simply apply the soft dots to both sides of the map, and add the scratchy dots to the ten clue cards you want to use, and off you go. You can apply dots to the remaining cards as and when you use them.

 

Laying the trail will quickly become intuitive. But for the first couple of times you can follow this pattern: choose the first clue (let’s say lamp) and place it in your pocket. Then walk to a lamp and place the next clue somewhere near it. Let’s assume this clue is bed. Then walk to a bed and hide the third clue. Keep going until you have run out of clues. Let’s say the last clue card you lay is for washing machine…walk to the washing machine, hide the gold bar and any additional treasure, and you’re all done.

 

Give the map, swag bag and the clue card from your pocket to the players, and off they go. Don’t forget to leave a gold coin with each clue card as you go.

 

Length & Difficulty of Trails

Trails will be harder and longer if you create greater distance between each clue (mixing indoor and outdoor, upstairs and downstairs).

 

You could also place clues in less prominent locations (just poking out from under a rug, for example) or use non-specific locations (such as door or window, as opposed to washing machine) to increase the difficulty.

 

Parents can guide younger children towards the right room if needed!

Different Ages Playing Together

If you are entertaining children of different ages, you might consider:

  • Allowing older children to lay the trail, or create their own clues on the blank (gold) cards.
  • Laying a trail with both riddle and picture clues. Children can take turns to solve the clues appropriate to their age.
  • Using our party add-on pack to lay one picture trail and one riddle trail and have a race!

Role-playing with Gotrovo

Remember that all versions of Gotrovo come with a selection of role-play clue cards. These are perfect for imaginative, creative play, where you set a trail around faraway lands such as mermaids' cove, winding staircase and giant's mountain.

 

There are instructions within the game on how to follow a role-play trail, but this really is a different element and feel to Gotrovo, and one which is well worth exploring.

 

Use Of Money

Money can be hidden with the clues, or just in the vicinity so that children have to search for it.

 

You could consider introducing the concept of value and get the children to 'purchase' a treat at the end of the trail, or exchange each gold coin for ten pence to spend on a day out.

Code of Conduct

Help children learn how to work in teams and share by assigning roles and issuing a code of conduct, for example taking turns, encouraging each other, kind hands etc.
