An exciting Treasure Hunt for Children's Birthdays with "Find the code" by HABA
"Dear Adventurers, imagine that you are in a forest and you discover a mysterious stone gateway. At first you feel a little uneasy, but then you step through the gate and suddenly find yourself surrounded by a fantastic world. You immediately fall under the spell of the magical atmosphere. Suddenly you discover a treasure chest that looks valuable. What could it be hiding? You are keen to find out, but then you discover that the box is locked with a combination. You will also find a box with a puzzle card, a play figure and pieces of a puzzle that might belong to a treasure map. All of this seems like it's connected and may help you find the treasure. Can you crack the number code to open the treasure chest?"

Find the Code – from an idea to a magnificent treasure chest
First of all there was the search for ideas
Antje Gleichmann, a member of the editorial team of Game and Book at HABA and Kai Haferkamp, successful author of children's games, ensured that a few good ideas were turned into a tangible, flexible game concept. Antje Gleichmann had the idea for "Find the Code" while organizing a treasure hunt at a children's birthday party. She was inspired by the constant hype around exit and escape games. Antje says: "Solving puzzles as a team to get out of a locked room or crack a code is fascinating, and not just for grown-ups." With "Find the code," she has devised two original puzzle games for children: "Find the Code – Pirate Island" and "Find the Code – Fantasy Land” mainly differ from each other in their themes. With minimal effort, each of these help parents to start an exciting treasure hunt for children over and over again.
