Treasure Hunt - Paul Lamond Games, 1989

The Treasure Hunt Game is based on the Treasure Hunt TV show which started on Channel 4 in the late 1980's, starring Anneka Rice. It was published by Paul Lamond Games in 1989.

The game recreates the show rather well. Contestants in the studio had to solve clues which led to various locations and then give instructions by radio message to Anneka Rice as she travelled around these same locations by helicopter.

The only problem that might arise is that the location clues would start to be repeated if you played the game a lot, but they are double sided, with almost 800 different questions, so I can't see this being an issue for most people.
