THATLou Rules & Tools

ROLES + STRATEGY
There are three main roles for each team: 1) hawk-eye, a lawyer-like soul who picks up bonus questions embedded in
the text (perhaps during strategy this person can skim and underline the text), 2) the navigator, good with a map and 3)
the visually-oriented one, quick to scan an area for your treasure. Kids usually excel at this last role.
For strategy we recommend writing the red # identifying each treasure onto your map, in the area where you expect to
find it (just look at the bold identifying lines in the text and match up the highlighted tags on your Louvre map). Please
note, one can answer the knowledge-based bonus Qs even without having found the treasure. THATLou prep can be
found on the blog (look under the “Category” list for your theme). As for museum navigation: the color-coding on the
map corresponds to the areas in the museum, so if lost you can just look on the walls between rooms for those same
colors (ex: Italian painting = red, Egyptian Antiquities = green). Each room is numbered & those numbers correspond to
the map. You will NOT find all the treasure within 2 hours, done intentionally so that hopefully after your hunt (& a break)
you’ll want to return to find the remaining treasures at a leisurely pace.
Have fun on your hunt and hopefully when you’re done you’ll not only feel camaraderie with your team, but feel an
individual sense of ownership of these great halls and will want to return to actually LOOK at the art (opposed to winning
a game, albeit a great one)!
RULES
1. Concerning the photographs, please only use one phone/camera per team. The photographer can change, but one
camera / phone facilitates tallying scores.
2. Teams must stay together at all times and must not run: If you are seen more than 3 meters apart you will lose 10
points per foot you’re found apart and (!) the team who sees you apart will gain in your lost points! (& yes, there was
just a switch from meters to feet… you don’t want to learn conversion the hard way, stick together!).
3. No external help… If seen speaking to a Louvre employee or fellow tourist you’re automatically eliminated; Likewise,
no using the internet, no GPS, or anything other than an official Louvre map (hardcopy) during the game. No phoning
your Art Historian Aunt for help, either!
4. Must meet back at arranged finish point at precise time (we will synchronize watches and agree to finishing time
beforehand). Each minute late merits 2 negative points - per minute! – but remember, no running Sometimes
there are strategic reasons to be late, but be careful – if you’re more than 10 mins late your team’s ousted (ouch!)
TOOLS + TIMING
A camera/phone per team with fresh batteries in that phone/camera (important point!) & comfy shoes (Photography’s
allowed in the museum, without flash)
The Hunt lasts 90 minutes to 2 hours (or longer if you opt for this), but we need a minimum of 20 minutes prior to hunting
time for a brief history of the museum, to review rules, distribute hunts, pencils + highlighted maps per team & to allow
teams to strategise. When booking you can opt for “express lane” tickets (22€/adult, kids under 18 enter free):
- Standard Private Hunt (not be met after the hunt, but we provide each team with an answer sheet in a sealed
envelope). You can also ask for “friendly competition” (against another family). 25€/head, not including tickets
- Luxe Hunt (we spy on teams as they’re playing & for a wrap-up at the end to help tally scores & have a lighthearted
prize-giving ceremony). 350€/3 hours (includes Kid Packs, but not entry tix & is for fewer than 6 people)
- Public Hunt (up to 30 people, only scheduled according to holidays, costs 20€/head, not including tickets)
The general rules are quite simple:
Teams (of 2 to 4 people) must photograph themselves in front of as
many pieces of art (treasure) on the list as possible, within the given
amount of time.
