The hunt consists of many different clues ranging in difficultly so everybody can get involved. In order to navigate to the end you will need to crack codes, solve riddles, correctly answer questions on the environment around you and orienteer around using a compass.

The Great Game is the perfect Cambridge activity for those who know the city well as not only are you bound to discover a new part to the historic city but also a short history and information on the buildings and areas you walk through can be found on the clues sheet providing a informative guide as you navigate around the city.
A unique aspect of The Great Game is the Codebreaker, this consists of 5 photos dotted along the hunt on each photo there is a number or letter hidden from view. Each detective must locate where this photo is taken and write down the number or letter in the Codebreaker this is then used to create co-ordinates for drawing an X on the map. This X of course marks the spot of the treasure! Once discovered the team must make there way to the X and the waiting pub. The pub sits in a great location for further exploration of the cities attractions pubs and bars, the perfect Cambridge activity.
