FAQs

Hello! My name is Will and I'm the designer behind the online scavenger hunts on this website!

I have a background as an electronics engineer and perform full-time as a magician in Australia. I have a passion for making things and providing fun experiences for people which is why I started Online Scavenger Hunts and I hope you enjoy playing the virtual escape rooms as much as I enjoyed designing them!

Happy playing and please see the FAQs section below :)

However, if you do, simply just click the game link in your receipt to open the game portal again and enter your last correct answer to take you to the point in the game that you left off (don't re-enter your game code at this stage otherwise you will start the game from the beginning again). If you do close the game and come back to play your team will be penalised 30 hints and 30 answers so it is important to keep the game window open wen you are playing if you want to get a good score on the leaderboard!




Are our scores posted on the leaderboard?
