In 2015, I built an intricate treasure/scavenger hunt for my Secret Santa Giftee and I started a business. Now I travel around building fun, puzzle filled, and/or immersive adventures for people all over the world! Let me teach you how to build on...
Hey There! I have a business called Constructed Adventures! I travel around the US (and occasionally other countries) building wildly elaborate custom treasure/scavenger hunts for people. Every year, I sign up for the Secret Santa holiday exchange and send my giftee on an adventure.
Here are the previous adventures
Last year, I made it a point to teach others how to build Adventures for their loved ones! I do a lot of consultation and I’m currently writing a book!
Right now, I would love the opportunity to spill my secrets and steer you in the right direction so you can create a fun, puzzle filled day for a loved one. So I’m trying something out (That I might regret later but oh well)
Go ahead and give me your parameters. Say you’ve always wanted to create a twisting turning day for someone, hit me with some information and I’ll try to help you build an outline and throw in a few gambits to help give you somewhere to start. Give me the basic location (city), the occasion, and maybe a level of difficulty and I’ll try to find a few spots and give you a few gambits so you feel comfortable building the adventure yourself! EDIT: I'm starting to get a lot of these. I want to be able to give good answers to everyone so You might have to be patient! i'll probably put a little placeholder to let you know I read it and then Fill them out as I can! I'll get through every one of these I promise.
That being said, you can ask me anything about Business, travel, or how it feels to get deported from Canada (it's not as exciting as you'd think).
The only thing I’m really plugging (other than shamelessly begging for publicity) is for you to join me over at r/constructedadventures. It’s a promotion free subreddit created to try to help people build adventures for their loved ones. Myself and a few of my proteges are active there! Come ask questions or contribute ideas!
Finally, I brought back the Bingo Card I made for Last year
While I'm here, I want to share a bunch of templates and resources that I use. Cheers!
