The Getting Lost Game

The unique travel game that sparks adventure

The best way to explore your backyard

Ever sat there wondering what to do this weekend?
Or gone to a “hidden gem” you just read about to find everyone else read the same thing too?
Does your search engine know where you are going before you’ve even finished typing it?

The Getting Lost Game is here to change all that!

We’ve become really predictable in how we adventure – we’re all lead by the same searches, blogs and feeds.

The Getting Lost Game is a Kiwi Invention that’s made right here in NZ and consists of 26 misdirection cards (things like turn left, turn right, head in the direction the wind is blowing, follow a blue car).

It’s purposefully offline and comes in a cute plant based plastic suitcase so an adventure is always close at hand.

It’s a way to switch off the technology and get back to exploring the way we used to do.

We recommend you start out with our Adventure Edition. This has everything you need to start adventuring and exploring in a more spontaneous, unscripted way.  From there you can add on booster packs like our Kiwi Summer Pack.

The Getting Lost Game helps you find the real hidden gems – the ones you won’t find in the guide books or in search – and supports those small businesses along the way.  

It’s a great way to see more of the country (or even just your own backyard).

It’s the perfect companion on holidays, weekend road trips, or even just a different way home from school.

We have been lost 2 weekends in a row now. Our young teens have been excited to get out of the house and off their devices!! It’s got us all laughing and having fun together and livened up these cold rainy weekends for us. We’ve found some cool raw NZ spots along the way too! Highly recommend this game!!

 

You can also supercharge your game with our special editions like our Winter Edition or our Out of Town Edition.   Or use play from home with our new Getting Lost Board Game add on!  This great add on turns your Getting Lost Adventurers or Standard Edition into a board game as well as a game to play out and about!

Joining us from across the ditch? We have a special Aussie Edition now available. Or if you are learning Te Reo Maori you can try our bilingual Te Reo Maori Edition.

It’s a unique travel game, created right here in NZ, that chucks out the notion of planning our adventures and instead leaves it all up to chance with random direction based cards that work anywhere you are.

The Getting Lost Game is made in NZ with biodegradable plant-based plastic.
It was invented by Kiwi travel bloggers Cat and James who were always asked how they found all the cool places that they blogged about (you can find out about those adventures on our “Places to Go” page) so they made a game to help everyone find cool spots off the beaten track.
It has been extensively road-tested by their 3 daughters (oh and a very cool road test from The Project which you can check out in this video).

” Fantastic Game! We took this on our family holiday to a place we weren’t familiar with. We loved discovering new places and having a laugh along the way. Every family should have one”

” We played this game with our grandsons and they loved it – even put down their tablets and phones for a few hours!! We read a new card every ten minutes to make it more interesting and that seemed to work well. We oldies play it without the grandkids now and thoroughly enjoy the drive.”
