You want, or are going to give a Hintle. But how to come up with original hints? Without revealing your plan in one hint, of course. We've collected all the tips from the Hintle surprisers and crew. We bet that this helps to create great hints!
It’s one of the most frequently asked questions: what if someone guesses my idea? Well, lets get the fun started. Because now you have two choices: admit it, or disguise it in mystery. Because you are the only one who really knows what is the truth. After all, the invitee will only know what is true on the day you meet! So, even if you can't lie, you can just laugh about it and say it's great that you think this way. Let’s see what happens. Suddenly, the other person no longer knows whether you are lying, or whether you like that the other person is on the wrong track. Later on, we give some hints that are useful to distract someone to another subject.
"Vague" hints to support multiple answers
How long do you have to drive, via which kind of transport should the invitee arrive? Do your clothes get dirty, or do you have to dress to impress? Is it a quiet activity, or full of adrenaline? Send a zoom in on a detail of the outing. For example, are you going to a concert? Find the album cover, paste it in paint, and cut out a small, hard to recognize square and upload it as an image hint.
How is the atmosphere where you meet? Is it a central station? Or just a cosy coffee shop. Or do you meet at a famous point of interest where you can hint about? Or have you met here before? Leave it to the imagination.
Do you also keep yourself as a sender a secret? Then share things about how you got to know each other. Or let them know that you already know the other person very well, by revealing details about where the invitee lives, works, or sports. This way you will build trust, while celebrating your unique relation. The invitee will of course contact ALL persons dear to him or her. So keeping yourself a surprise, makes someone wonder about the lovely bonds he or she already has. Thanks to one question: who would do this for me?
Last but not least. Also make nice hints that make no sense, so that you fool someone a little. It is precisely because of this that people can no grasp what you are up to. And that is of course pure enjoyment for you. Yes the invitee will of course sau: how could I have guessed this? But hey, everything for a good cause, right?
