Do you dread hearing 'I'm bored' from your kids?

If you are looking for a boredom buster at home, work or outings, here is just the thing for you - a quick on-the-go treasure hunt creator and player. Turn any space into a fun playground with Gamar's AR treasure & egg hunt creator and start making fond memories.

Treasure in plain sight - Hide treasure anywhere!

The point of a treasure hunt is to hide clues that lead to a treasure. But what if you were able to hide the treasure in plain sight? An augmented reality treasure hunt lets you hide treasure anywhere! (so long as it’s immobile...) Create a treasure hunt around your home or garden. 

Gamar’s AR treasure hunt is a quick, easy (and free!) way to create a fun activity for kids or a scavenger hunt for anyone. 

Just follow these five simple steps to create your own treasure hunt:

1. Download the Gamar app

The Gamar app is available to download for Apple or Android devices. To get to the treasure hunt creator, open the app. On the home screen, you will see all the locations where Gamar has AR trails available. From the home screen, select the + button in the bottom right-hand corner.

2. Hide an augmented reality coin

You can select from 8 coin designs to pick which virtual treasure you would like to hide. Once you’ve chosen the coin you would like to hide, point your device at an immobile, preferably flat, surface.

The ‘tap to hide’ button will pulse on the right of your screen if you can hide a coin on a surface that you are pointing at.

 4. Complete your treasure hunt

Hide at least two coins in your treasure hunt. You can hide up to eight coins and create a trail for your friends to follow.

5. Pass your game to a friend to find the treasure

Pass your phone to a friend and let them follow your trail and collect the treasure. Once they’ve collected all the treasure, ask them to create a treasure hunt for you to follow.

All the hidden treasure has been found

Digital treasure hunts are much more exciting and easier to create. But bear in mind, you cannot save or share your treasure hunt with other devices.

For a small, one-off price, you can create, save and share eggs hunts and treasure hunts. With Gamar's personal plan, you can create longer trails, add custom animations and more exciting activities to take your fun to the next level.
