The Oakland Treasure Hunt is a unique urban sleuthing adventure played on the streets of downtown and uptown Oakland. Teams have three hours to solve clues leading to unique locations including obscure landmarks, forgotten architectural delights, and vestiges of Oakland’s rich history.

THE HUNT

Players are organized into teams, typically of four to six people, though you can compete with a smaller team if you choose. You can participate with friends and coworkers, or volunteers will pair you with an existing team or other individuals at the event. It’s a great way to meet and share a fun experience with new people. All clues are created by Jayson Wechter of SF Treasure Hunts.

Teams are organized into four divisions:sfhunts

Expert Division: For returning hunters including Chinese New Year veterans

Novice Division: For newcomers

Student Division: For students ages 14-20

Family Division: For parents and their (under 18) children

Prizes are awarded for top teams in each division. You could win cakes and champagne or gift cards for museums, breweries, and rock climbing gyms! Even Warriors tickets!

EXTRA FUN!

Team Name Contest:

Players are organized into teams, typically of four to six people. Winners will be awarded for the best team name. Teams enter their team name when they create a team and purchase tickets on Eventbrite. Names may be changed at any time prior to the Treasure Hunt, but must be finalized by 5:00 pm Monday, October 24, 2016. Judges especially like puns with an Oakland-theme!

Most Creative Costume Contest:
