Beat That Scavenger Hunt

scavenger hunt timer

Have you ever started a friendly competition of "Beat That!?!"

You know ... one person says, "I met a famous baseball player." 

Another answers, "So what, my uncle is a famous baseball player." 

Yet another states, "That's nothing! I got to throw the opening pitch at ..." And so it goes. 

This scavenger hunt is based on that type of competition. 

Note: You will need a moderator for this game. 

Find a location where there is a lot of pedestrian traffic. Set a definite time limit and stick to it. Divide players into two or more teams and give each team a list of things to look for. I'll use Find the tallest man as an example. 

Suppose Team 1 finds a man 6 foot 1 inch tall. Team 1 brings the man to the moderator and the moderator records the information. Team 1 is now winning for the tallest man and may start looking for something or someone else on their list. 

Team 2, on the other hand may try to one-up Team 1 by finding a taller man or continue looking for other people or things on their list. 

Teams are free to one-up each other until time runs out. The team with the upper hand in the most categories at the end of the game WINS! 

Make up your own list or use any or all of the items in the list below. 

May the best woman (or man) WIN! 


Beat That Scavenger Hunt List

Find the following: 

  • The tallest man

  • The smallest dog

  • The person with the longest hair

  • The person who speaks the most languages

  • The person with the longest nails

  • The person with the biggest feet

  • The person wearing the most rings

  • The person with the most braids

  • The cat with the shortest tail

  • The dog with the longest ears

  • The person wearing the highest heels

  • The person wearing the most buttons

  • The youngest grandmother

  • The oldest man

  • The person with a birthday closest to the day of your hunt

  • The person with the longest last name


You may want to supply your moderator with a measuring tape in case the competition becomes too close to tell by eye alone. 

Variation: If you don't want to have to approach people you might want to make a list of items to find instead (eg. oldest penny, whitest feather, longest pine needle, shiniest stone, etc.) 

Please note: For obvious reasons, this would not be a good game for children.
