We love puzzles and games at Treasure Trails and will of course choose to do a Treasure Trail over other puzzles and games most days…. but sometimes it is nice to have a change or maybe the weather isn’t conducive to exploring outdoors! There are hundreds of puzzles and games available to purchase, but we’ve chosen some personalised ones to share with you. They’ve been sorted by cost with the lowest first!
A Treasure Trail experience
Readers of this blog will know that a Treasure Trail booklet can be personalised either directly through the website or by using a local Treasure Trail’s partner. Doing it through our simple online software couldn’t be easier, just choose which town you plan to explore, and once you reach the individual Trail page click on ‘Personalised’ and follow the prompts. £12.99 + delivery.
How about making your own board game
If you are so inclined and have a computer and a colour printer you can buy a kit that comes with all the instructions to make your own property trading board game. Seems like hard work to me, but could keep the family quiet for at least one half term! £14.06 + delivery.
Personalised playing cards
I’d love to own my own set of personalised playing cards and if I buy 25 packs, then I can have them! I might struggle to convince people they weren’t marked though! I couldn’t find any personalised cards that can be bought as one offs, but I did find a lovely playing card box set, which can be personalised. £22.95 + delivery.
Does anyone do jigsaws these days? I guess they must do otherwise they would be difficult to source. Go into any charity shop and there are usually several boxes of them on the shelves! We found a website that can create a personalised jigsaw – all you have to do is supply them with your address and postcode and they create a 400 piece puzzle without a picture to copy! I might be tempted to clue it all onto a board once completed! £29.95 + delivery.
Personally I am not a fan of the board game monopoly – it takes too long and I nearly always lose! But I love the idea of My Monopoly which the clever bods over at Waddingtons have created. The easy to use website allows you to personalise the property names, all the property cards and the references in the chance and community chest cards – so you can have Granddad’s Garage and Aunty Sue’s shop on your board! £79.99 including p&p.
Whilst researching for this post, I came across two ways of personalising the perennial favourite Guess Who. The DIY version with a bit of help will cost no more than your time and printer ink, or if you have lots of spare cash and a special occasion, then there is an option to send in 24 photos of friends and family and get back a very professional looking Guess Who game! £1,195 + delivery.
