You and I both know that kids learn best when they are having fun. Unfortunately, they might not be learning the right kind of things as they watch yet another Tik-Tok video!
But what if they were having fun...
AND learning how to solve logic puzzles, use their math skills, how to encode and decode patterns, research and find relevant information...
AND learning about the history and culture of a new city with each mission?
All whilst you sit back with your feet up with a cuppa!
Whether you love or hate it, it's here and our kids need to learn to navigate it safely.
That's why we designed 193mysteries treasure hunt in a way where the kids get to use the real internet in a situation where you can guide them without being 'an annoying adult'.
This opens up the opportunity for discussion and guidance plus real life experience but in a controlled way. Allowing your kids to learn and giving you peace of mind as you see them handle themselves.
193mysteries will get your kids excited about travel, the world, history and culture even if you can't actually leave the country right now!
Join Commander J as 193mysteries secret agents as you explore the world with each mission you take.
Register your team at the 193mysteries HQ. Your missions are delivered here (and your bonuses)
Login and receive your first mission, and bonuses. Accept the challenge, and the adventure begins...
193mysteries is a ready-to-play edutainment online treasure hunt where your family becomes a team of secret agents.
Your mission will send you to a new country and city where you will use your wit and cunning to stop the villain and save the day.
Each season has a running story that is woven into each mission. Although the story is fictional all the historical and cultural information within each mission is real and correct.
Your team will need to use their smarts to outwit the villains. You will need to crack codes, decipher messages, solve puzzles all whilst exploring (virtually) a new city. Igniting your kids imagination whilst they learn.
We regularly release a new mission. Destination unknown.
Play the game in your own time, on your own schedule. No need to book a slot or fit to a specific timezone.
Take the learning off-line with a location specific intel pack of lesson ideas, knowledge cards, information sheets and pages for the kids to make their own booklet about the place that you have visited when tackling your mission.
How can you learn about a new culture without sampling the food? With each mission we provide an easy, authentic recipe for you to try at home. We aim to use ingredients that are readily available everywhere and easy enough for the kids to prepare!
We all love surprises! So keep an eye out for hidden bonus games, puzzles and mystery problems that need to be solved. Perfect for when you need to keep the kids distracted so you can get on and get things done!
"My husband and I really enjoy doing the 193mysteries together with a glass of wine. It has become a fun date night during which we both pull out our detective hats and work together to solve the riddles.
We have been impressed by the level of difficulty, the variety, and the educational aspect of the games. We both love to travel and love challenges but with 4 kids, it's all challenges and no travel! 193mysteries has brought 'travel' and fun back into our lives!"
Commander J is a best selling Montessori author, experienced teacher, curriculum creator and homeschooling mom who loves to travel. She believes that learning should be child- led and FUN.
Designed so all the family can join in, discover each member's strengths and bond as a team. A variety of puzzles to crack, something new and different in every mission! An adventure for everyone even if you can't actually leave home!
Goodbye boring old text books, hello real life research, problem solving and fun. The kids will never realize that you are sneaking in maths, geography, logic, culture and history lessons and so much more!
Digital gifts are difficult, if not impossible to wrap. Which makes the actual gift-giving process a bit, well, meh! This is why we provide you with a PDF with a printable coded message for your recipients to crack that will lead them to their login page...
Keeping kids safe on the internet is a worry of many parents, which is why we created the fun Net Safety training. Helping you and your kids learn how to navigate this minefield, how to stay safe and how to spot scams and dodgy geezers.

Most 193 agents complete the main mission in around 60 minutes.
Because many families want to take their learning to the next level we wanted to include some resources to make that easy for busy parents to do. Each intel pack is based on the location of the mission and include pages for the secret agents (kids) to fill in. Info cards, Montessori style 3 part cards, and pages for them to create their own book about the location.
You can pick and choose what you want to use.
