Finders Winners


The earliest humans were both hunters and gatherers, and those instincts still exist on some level in our psyches today. How else would you explain the enthusiasm with which scavenger hunts are met? These events certainly have a hunting component — trying to find the next location — and there's also the gathering of clues and such, making for a perfect outing for everyone. With Seeker Games' St. Louis History Hunt, not only will your team of no more than four players race around the city to answer clues and collect some of the 50 keys hidden at historic locales, but you all will also have a chance to win $750 if one of your keys fits the safe holding the cash, fulfilling a newer human instinct: Win money. Registration in advance is required, and the hunt kicks off from Tower Grove Park (4256 Magnolia Avenue) at noon. Visit to learn more and to sign up ($50 per team); a portion of the proceeds benefits Shriners Hospital for Children. And note: Now would be a good time to start reviewing St. Louis history facts — that knowledge will definitely come in handy if you're in it to win it.
