Boulder, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/24/2018 -- Color Clues is a creative new game that gives parents an easy way to set up treasure hunts for their kids. The hunt starts when a parent gives their child the first code, a sequence of 4 primary colors, and a smart phone running the Color Clues app. Tapping the code into the app triggers the first audio clue. One clue leads to another until the final destination is reached: a hidden gift or a surprise or simply a congratulations for completing the hunt. The audio clues and color codes allow children to solve the treasure hunts completely on their own, even before they can read, giving them a sense of ownership and satisfaction at their success.

For busy parents, Color Clues allows complex and engaging treasure hunts to be set up in a matter of minutes. They can choose from a database of pre-made treasure hunts that will work in almost any home, or follow a simple process to create their own. The kids will then be off and running by themselves, giving their parents a well-deserved respite.

A key feature of Color Clues is the ability for users to upload the treasure hunts they have created to an online database. Any other user can then set up that treasure hunt in their own home, tweaking the clues as necessary to make it fit. This gives the entire treasure hunting community access to an ever-growing set of treasure hunts, created by imaginative people all over the world.

Color Clues is in the final week of a successful Kickstarter campaign to generate pre-orders for the first production run of game boxes. Through Friday, October 26, contributors can order a copy of the game at below retail value. For higher pledge levels, contributors can also receive a treasure hunt that has been customized with their child's name, or even a fully customized hunt using specific hiding locations around their house and yard.

As part of the Kickstarter campaign, a number of award-winning children's authors and screenwriters have committed to writing treasure hunts for Color Clues, including Minh Lê, Thyra Heder, Xelena González, and Erica Rivinoja. Following the successful campaign, the treasure hunts written by these authors will be available to everyone with the game.

Interested parties can learn more about Color Clues by visiting the campaign on Kickstarter.
