Day or arvo

Start by tea dying some paper to make a map or download the printable map pack. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

When you have your map it’s time to stash the loot (small present or picnic). Head out a few hours before the hunt begins and hide the treasure out of sight. It’s pretty important that your map guides to this spot…

When you’re on the date simply give subtle clues like ‘warmer/cooler’ rather than telling them where to go. A huge amount of the fun on this date is solving the clues and getting to the reward at the end.

Any time

In this fun date night your partners going to be ‘lost in time’ on a creative narrative journey like no other! She will need to solve some challenges to get to the end of the story but you’ll be there the whole time to help her out and make it romantic.

This date idea on those Escape Rooms where a player enters a locked room and needs to find clues that help them get out. Usually these are elaborate adventure experiences run as a full business but you can make one for her at home easily by simply printing these clues.

The pack contains everything you need to run your own escape challenge. All you need to do it print them out as photos at a nearby office store. With clues in hand go round each room in your house and follow the instructions for what to hide where.

Basic escape game example

Looking around the the ‘locked room’ the player finds:

  • A locked safe that needs a 6 digit combination
  • A postcard with a date circled

Once the clues have been found the player needs to deduce that the date on the postcard is the same length as the combination. This ‘opens’ the safe where the key is!

Fun escape room game

On the night explain to your partner that this is a creative role play adventure date which you’ll be helping her through. Don’t worry if she’s not that much into mental challenges as it’s designed to be solvable.

When the game begins simply follow the script for each location as she solves the puzzles. You will need to give her a few clues, act in character, hand her ‘objects’ when puzzles are solved. Most importantly you’re there to make it a fun date night since she gets to do it with you!
