Hide and Seek (game)


Hide and Seek is an activity that can be played with children in Skyrim. Once you have agreed to play with a child, all of the children in the area will run and hide; you must find them all to complete the quest. Most of the children will hide behind buildings or in shadowy areas, but they should all be relatively easy to find. If you have not found the children after a certain amount of time, the quest will end automatically. Hide and Seek has no purpose other than for roleplaying, although it could be used to help level Sneak. No rewards are given.

If you have Hearthfire loaded, children you have adopted will also occasionally ask you to play with them. This version of the game only involves that one child.


  • Games are only playable from 8am until 9pm.
