How it Works
Every Saturday at 7 am beginning April 9, 2022, a new riddle is revealed. Its solution unlocks the page with that week’s second clue. Finding the answer to the first riddle often involves visiting the hinted upon location or checking your map.
The second clue will have adventurers visiting various spots in the region as they gather segments of the treasure’s GPS coordinates. Those able to successfully complete the five-week quest unlock the resting place of my Easter egg that redeems for the coin-laded treasure chest.
How to Play
Playing is simple. Purchase your treasure map from the Trust and check Uncharted Lancaster’s website every Saturday at 7 am beginning April 9, 2022, for that week’s challenge. Next, solve the riddles and decipher the clues to unlock segments of the treasure’s GPS coordinates each week. Participants will be unable to claim my Easter egg until the final weekly clue is released on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at 7 am in this first-to-find winner takes all game of skill.
Find a treasure. Preserve a treasure.
When you purchase a copy of the map, you also get a year’s membership with the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County. Profits from this year’s treasure hunt are being used to kick start the Trust’s digital archiving project. This ambitious undertaking involves scanning their 160,000 artifact collection, including many one-kind items that highlight Lancaster County’s rich architectural heritage. The project is expected to cost upwards of $200,000. So while you are busy trying to find my treasure, you are helping the Trust preserve theirs.
