Powerful platform, simple process

ClueKeeper brings hunt design to a whole new level. Our step-by-step process will guide you through each aspect of hunt and clue creation, making it easy for you to design the hunt that you're imagining.

When you run your hunt, all clues, hints, and messages are distributed to players via the ClueKeeper mobile app. Players submit their answers through the app as well, and all scoring data is collected for you online.

Benefits for creators

Two hunt types to suit your needs

ClueKeeper hunts are divided into two categories: hosted and self-guided.

Hosted Hunts icon

Hosted Hunts

Hosted hunts are private or public events in which teams register in advance and play together at the same time, on the same day.

Unhosted Hunts icon

Self-Guided Hunts

Self-guided hunts are public hunts sold through the ClueKeeper marketplace that do not require any on-site staff. Anyone can download and play a self-guided hunt whenever they like!

Pricing graphic

Pricing

For all hosted hunts and private self-guided hunts, we charge a flat rate of $10 per team. Discounts are available for non-profit organizations or charity events.

For public self-guided hunts, we charge a flat rate of $5 per team plus transaction fees imposed by the payment processor, and then the creator receives all additional profits, as shown here. These hunts must be submitted for review by the ClueKeeper team prior to publication to ensure they meet a high standard of quality.

Still not sure? It is completely free to build and test your hunts, so don't hesitate to try it out first.
