Here is an example that the author wrote to show how the clues are formatted:
Some clues you only have to find
With some you have to do
Whatever task your host requests
Before you get your clue
You might be digging in your yard
Or checking your dog house
You might receive a clue e-mail
Or be crawling like a mouse
Your host might choose to make you wear
Things hidden with your clue
There is no end to all the things
Your host might make you do
The clues will definitely keep everyone entertained and the party moving. Plus, if you’ve ever been on a treasure hunt, you know how much fun and satisfaction you get when you find all the clues – and finally, the treasure. Treasure Hunt has all the information you’ll need to plan the perfect hunt, with gifts as the treasure.
The book is by Nancy Kruse, who enjoys reading, writing poetry and new creative projects. It is published by BookLocker.com, Inc.
I thought the book had some cute ideas. I've done similar "guest participation" games at parties with huge success, although I've never tried a full blown scavenger hunt. I am a bit traditional and wouldn't want to hide the kids Christmas Gifts, but it might be fun for an office party to hide secret santa gifts. And you don't even have to use the clues verbatim, it is a great jumping off point to come up with your own short poems and funny actions to get the crowd buzzing! Actually, my husband TOOK my book to plan something for his office.
I would love for Nancy to come up with a second book that is more geared towards Bachelorette Parties, because I am positive it will be a big hit. She has wonderful ideas!
