Boxed Red Games – Knutsford Treasure Hunt


It’s time for the next instalment of the Boxed Red Games! This time the team have been hunting around Knutsford in a special treasure hunt, in which TWO points are available for the winning team!

Each team left the office at a different time, and were tasked with solving the clues, answering questions and getting back to base as quickly as they possibly can.

There was one point for completing the treasure hunt in the quickest time, and another for answering the most questions correctly. It’s a double whammy!

Cat and Janna sneaked out without telling anyone, and sprinted around the course in record time. Ben tried to figure out some ways to cheat (but we caught him out) and the developers, Beegs and John were desperate to clinch their first point on the board.

Janna and Cat made it back to the office in an incredible 17 minutes and scored 25 points from an available 26.

The developers romped home in just 18 minutes but scraped only 17 points on the quiz sheet.

The designers had an extra team member, but finished the course in the slowest time of 19 minutes. However, that extra brain must have paid off because they scooped the most points from the quiz sheet with a brilliant 26 out of 26.

So it’s one point each to the Strategic Management Team for the quickest time, and one to the Designers for the most points scored overall.

If you want to have your own go at the Knutsford Treasure Hunt, we’ve shared the clues, questions and their answers below. Let us know how you get on!
