Funny team names for scavenger hunts typically use a friendly adjective combined with hunter, scavenger or seekers, such as Happy Seekers or Fun Hunters. Animals typically known for hunting are also a popular choice, such as Scouting Eagles or Hungry Lions.
Digital applications are widely used in contemporary scavenger hunts, with clues given via text message or scanning bar codes. Team names sometimes reflect this using names with technological terms, such as Rising Cache Stars or Web Wanderers. Funny word play is another popular choice for team names, such as Eye Spy, The Clues Brothers or We Thought This was Bingo.
