To start, this treasure hunt consists of two rounds. First, in round 1, players read 14 riddles which will reveal the location of their next clue. After finding each clue, they will decode a puzzle which reveals “movement” on the treasure map. Next, in round 2, players use the decoded answers from the puzzles and move the “directions” on the treasure map to figure out where their final prize will be hidden.
