This is a great party game for any group of kids who love Batman. In this version, there is just one team working together to foil Batman’s arch-nemesis, the Riddler. The Riddler has left a trail of tricky clues that the team must unravel to collect the Bat-gear they need to foil his dastardly plot.
This scavenger hunt takes place within your home and yard. You’ll need to hide all the Bat-gear ahead of time and be on hand to offer clues if the kids need help in solving the Riddler’s brain-teasers.
YOU WILL NEED:
• Batman Stickers
• Batman-arang (boomerang or cardboard cutout in the shape of a boomerang, covered in bat stickers)
• Bat goo gun (a small water-pistol covered in bat stickers)
• Cryo-capsules (emptied cold capsules or any small capsule-shaped containers from the dollar store)
• Night-vision goggles (sunglasses, 3D glasses, swimming goggles, covered in bat stickers)
• Master key (real key, toy key or chocolate key covered in bat stickers)
• Batman Gauntlets (black gloves will also work)
• Bat lasso (coil of rope tied with a plastic bat or bound with a cardboard band covered in bat stickers)
• Yellow toy schoolbus
• Envelope and notepaper to write/print out the clues
• Prizes - We recommend Batman-themed party favors so all the kids get a little prize!

HOW IT WORKS:
Decorate all the Batman-gear listed above with bat stickers. Write out all the clues as printed below on notes and stuff them in envelopes. Decorate the notes and envelopes with purple or green question marks (the Riddler’s signature).
Place the clues and Batman-gear in different spots all over the house and yard, as described below. The clues are listed at the very bottom of the page. You can copy them out onto notepaper or print them off on your computer.
Clue #1: Hand the first clue directly to the team to start them off.
Clue #2: Hide the clue in an egg-carton in the fridge (you can either hide the envelope under the egg-carton or fold the clue up and place it inside a plastic Kinder-egg). [NOTE: The kids may need some hints from you to solve the Riddler’s riddle. The answer to the riddle is AN EGG.]
Clue #3: Tape/tie the clue to the Bat-arang and hide it anywhere in the living room.
Clue #4: Tape/tie the clue to the Bat goo gun and hide it somewhere in the family car. You can hide it in the trunk, the glove compartment, under the seats, etc. [NOTE: The kids may need some hints from you to solve the Riddler’s riddle. The answer to the riddle is A CAR.]
Clue #5: Tape/tie the clue to the cryo-capsules and hide them somewhere in the bathroom.
Clue #6: Write three different names on three different envelopes: Edward Nigma, Johnny Cipher and Mark Question. Inside the Edward Nigma envelope, include Clue #6 plus this note: “You chose the right name, drat it. You’ll find Batman’s night vision goggles hidden in an envelope taped under the dining room table.”
Inside each of the envelopes marked Johnny Cipher and Mark Question, include Clue #6 plus this note: “You chose the wrong name, fools! Mwahahahaha! My other name is Edward Nigma. You better hope you don’t need those goggles. Now move on to the next task.”
Now tape the Night-vision goggles to the underside of the dining room table (it doesn’t need a clue/note attached).
Clue #7: Tape/tie the clue to the Master key and hide it somewhere in a tree in your yard. [NOTE: The kids may need some hints from you to solve the Riddler’s riddle. The answer to the riddle is A TREE.]
Clue #8: Tape/tie the clue to the Bat cuffs and hide them somewhere in the garage.
Clue #9: Tape/tie the clue to the Bat lasso and hide it somewhere in the front yard.
Clue #10: Tape/tie it to the yellow school-bus. This clue directs the kids to bring the school-bus to you to claim their reward for foiling the Riddler and saving a school-bus full of kids!
