Last year we shared a fun Hide the Acorn Game printable for Fall. It’s similiar to the game Battleship and a lot of you really loved it! This year, we’re sharing two Halloween versions. The first one is this Witches Dungeon Treasure Hunt Game. It’s a great activity to do with the kids while they anxiously await Trick or Treat times, family game night, or to even pass out to classmates or Trick-or-Treaters!
Witches Dungeon Treasure Hunt Game
The spooky theme for this treasure hunt game is a witches dungeon, complete with boiling cauldron, bats and spiders galore, and potions sprinkled throughout the scene.
If you haven’t played Battleship, it’s a fairly easy game to learn. It’s basically a version of a hide and seek game, with players hiding their ships and trying to find their opponents’ ships before they find theirs.
This is a two player game and, to start, each player will need something to write with, as well as their own copy of the printable game piece (found at the end of this post).
After printing out two copies of the game board, each player will secretly draw an eyeball somewhere in the bottom grid of the page. The eyeball doesn’t have to be perfect and can just be a circle or anything else, depending on drawing ability.
After drawing your eyeball, and ensuring the other player doesn’t see where you put it, fold the bottom of the page under at the dotted line to keep your eyeball location hidden.
Next, players will take turns to try and find their opponents hidden eyeball by asking questions such as, “Is your eyeball in a square with a spider?” or “Is your eyeball in square C6?”
Use the top section of the paper to keep track of your opponents answers. For example, if they tell you the eyeball isn’t in a square with a spider, cross off all the squares that have spiders in them. This will narrow down where the eyeball is.
The first person to find their opponents eyeball is the winner!
Now it’s your turn! Grab a friend and the printable game pieces below to start your own Eyeball Hunt!
