The Getting Lost Game

The unique travel game that sparks adventure

The best way to explore your backyard – where ever it may be!

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 and is proudly made in New Zealand.  Our Adventurers or Standard Edition are our most popular starter packs and consist of 26 misdirection cards (things like turn left, turn right, head in the direction the wind is blowing, follow a blue car) that can be played anywhere around the world.

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 Adventurers 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 love adventures but it’s a hard task finding new ones where we are.  This game makes a simple drive fun – so great not having to put effort into planning anything too”

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!  The specially designed Getting Lost maps turns your 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.

The Getting Lost Game is here to change all that!

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.

Check out when Josh played the Getting Lost Game on The Project!
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”
