There was a board game released years ago (possibly/probably in the UK only) which I only ever saw in charity shops, just wondering if anyone can help name it?

Basically, it was a real life hunt for a million pounds. I think the premise was that you solved clues, which led to more clues and so on, and that was about it!

Anyone got any ideas, I was just really curious if anyone actually won it but obviously I cant remember the name to search for it! Pretty sure the word Million or Millionaire was in the title but that's not much use on a search, and the files on this great site don't have it.

Anyone help?

I thought it was a book. I remember a friend having. Don't remember the name either.

Wasn't it called 39 Clues or something like that?

That was my guess too.

There's a company called Sonic Games in the UK that has a series of puzzle objects. It was called Isis Adventure. If you open the puzzles they lead to real world locations where cash prizes are hidden. Could that be what you're talking about?

Not a popular name choice right now ;-)

There were many "real life treasure hunt" books & games published over the years. E.g. "The Secret", a book from 1982 https://boingboing.net/2014/07/15/the-quest-to-find-12-hidde... and Treasure of the Silver Dragon, a game from 1980.

I see copies of Eternity puzzles in UK charity shops all the time, so that would be my guess too.

Masquerade by Kit Williams was a book which had hidden clues to a treasure (think is was a EDIT: Gold hare) buried somewhere in the UK countryside.

I think this one is the one I remember. Thought the treasure was worth more.

Nah, none of these are what I've seen numerous times in UK charity shops, unfortunately.
