FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW TO GET STARTED

1. Sign up using the easy PLAYER REGISTRATION form.
ONCE YOU ARE LOGGED IN, LEARN THE BASICS BELOW:
SOLVING ONLINE PUZZLES:

Each puzzle has a special code assigned to it. It is called a Treasure Code. You must figure out what the Treasure Code is to access an Online Puzzle. Follow these steps.

A. Click PUZZLES in the main menu above. At the top of the page you'll see THE NUMBER OF TREASURE CODES AVAILABLE, which is the total puzzles that can be found online and via live GPS hunts.

B. Click the link that says VIEW UNSOLVED PUZZLES. Some Treasure Codes can only be found via a live GPS hunt and will not have a VIEW CLUE link. These puzzles will NOT show up in your Unsolved List.

C. From the list of puzzles, click VIEW CLUE to see the clue on how to find or figure out the TREASURE CODE for a specific puzzle. Try the puzzle titled: "SAMPLE PUZZLE - B AND E"

D. Once you figure out what the TREASURE CODE is, you can type it into the TREASURE CODE form on that View Clue page or anytime on the homepage or the Puzzles page.

E. You are NOT penalized for typing in the incorrect TREASURE CODE, so feel free to keep trying to figure out what the code is. In some cases it might be difficult to figure out. This is part of the fun!
F. The puzzles marked CURRENT MONTH are puzzles that go towards the current game score. Each calendar month you compete against other players to get the highest score. The top players are entered into a drawing for the current month prize(s). If you can also solve PREVIOUS PUZZLES from past monthly games. These puzzles will add to your all-time overall score and will give you some practice or just allow you to keep solving puzzles in case you run out of CURRENT MONTH puzzles.

 

GOING ON A GPS HUNT:

You can use your GPS unit to go on treasure hunts which can be very simple or very complicated. Here are the basics.

A. Click on the LIVE HUNTS link in the main menu above.

B. Click the link FIND A TREASURE BOX NEAR YOU at the top of the page.

C. Use the Search Tool to find a Treasure Box in your area. If there are none, you might want to consider CREATING A LIVE HUNT to get things started.

D. Print out the page that describes the LIVE HUNT that you'd like to go on. You can also click on HINTS. This will open a page with helpful hints on how to locate the Treasure Box. You will not be able to see the text on this page when viewed online, but you can print it on your printer. We suggest printing the page and then folding it up without looking. Then you can use it only if needed. There is no penalty for using the Hints on a Live Hunt.

E. Now step away from the computer and go on a live GPS hunt! Use your GPS unit and whatever other means necessary to find the Treasure Box!
F. Once you have located the Treasure Box, you should see a BOXCODE that is permanently attached to it. Write this code down for later use on the GPS THE GAME website. You many also see one or more Treasure Codes that will lead you to more puzzles on the GPS THE GAME website.
G. Each Treasure Box will be different and specific directions should be included with each Box. Please follow the directions that are left in the Box. Do not remove items that should not be removed from the Box, and place the Box back exactly where you found it for others to find.
H. Return to the GPS THE GAME website and enter the BOXCODE into the form on the homepage. This will give you points, log your find, and give you other goodies.
I. Enter any newly found Treasure Codes into the form on the homepage to access new puzzles.
THOSE ARE THE BASICS!

CREATING A LIVE HUNT:

It's fun and adventurous to create your own live GPS hunt. Stashing a Treasure Box is simple and you can get creative with the PUZZLE CREATION system which will allow you to integrate elaborate Quests, Missions, Hunts, and Mysteries.

A. Click on the LIVE HUNTS link on the main menu above. Then click on STASH A TREASURE BOX.

B. Choose a BOXCODE and enter it into the form. This should be 3 to 6 letters. This is NOT your final BOXCODE. We will create a unique BOXCODE based on your input.

C. Fill out the form with as much information as you have available at the moment. You have NOT hidden the Treasure Box at this point, so you will NOT be able to enter the GPS coordinates.

D. After you finish filling out the form with as much information as possible, click SAVE HUNT. The Live Hunt will NOT be active until you have visited your MY-PAGE and you mark it active. Live Hunts also need to be approved by GPS THE GAME before they are active on the website.
E. After you click SAVE HUNT, you will be given the final BOXCODE. Write this down and make sure it is permanently affixed to your Treasure Box for players to see and write down when they find it. For ideas on creative hunts - Click Here.
F. Now go HIDE your Treasure Box! Make sure you take your GPS unit with you. Write down the coordinates of the Treasure Box and any additional details that will be used for your LONG DESCRIPTION and HINTS field.
G. Return to the GPS THE GAME website and visit your MY-PAGE. Click on MY-TREASURE PAGE under the LIVE HUNT ADMINISTRATION section.
H. There are three sections. Under the top section titled INACTIVE OR UNAPPROVED TREASURE HUNTS, you should see your Live Hunt listed. Click the EDIT button and insert any missing information, including the GPS coordinates of the Treasure Box and the Hints. Click SAVE HUNT.
I. On your MY-TREASURE PAGE, your hunt will still be listed as INACTIVE. Click on PREVIEW TREASURE BOX AND CHECK FOR ERRORS. This will give you a look at your LIVE HUNT as the other players will see it. Check your formatting, make sure all the information is present and correct, and make sure the link to the MAP works correctly. If you have any changes to make you can make them by going back into the MY-TREASURE PAGE and clicking on EDIT again.
J. Once you are happy with everything you must visit the MY-TREASURE PAGE, click on EDIT for your Live Hunt and then mark it ACTIVE. Then click SAVE HUNT. This will submit the Live Hunt to us for approval.
