Pre-Game Inspiration: 50+ Great Team Name Ideas for Your Next Scavenger Hunt

Think Up an Amazing Team Name Before You Play

Every great scavenger hunt team needs a good team name. Whether you’re joining an in-person scavenger hunt or one of our virtual games, a fun, funny team name will inspire teamwork, and might earn you some bonus points.

As you can see from last time, a great team name can be silly, or topical, or occasionally even a bit suggestive. And it should be at least somewhat original—our Hunt Hosts have seen “The Winning Team” and “Our Host Is the Best!” more times than they can count. To help inspire your next one, we’ve gathered some of our favorite team name ideas from hunters just like you. Take a look and get your own creative brain fired up.

Naturally, many groups playing our games in the past year or so have turned to Covid-based humor for their team names. Clearly, pandemic- and Zoom-inspired team names can be a lot of fun, as long as they don’t go overboard.
