    Default Californiagoldhunt.com

    This is a new hunt from a Tweleve member Zhurak called California Gold Hunt. I have spoken with Zhurak through email and he says the hunt is guranteeing @$5,000 in gold to be awarded every month. The gold will be hidden somewhere in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Ventura, or San Bernardino Counties.

    The best part is: The first hunt is FREE! So no reason not to check it out.

    PS - Yes, you can play if you don't live there.

    From the site:

    On September 1, 2007, we will hide a treasure worth over $5,000 somewhere in Southern California. And you can find it!
    Best of all...the first California Gold Hunt is ABSOLUTELY FREE!
    Register now to receive clues that lead to the hiding place, and you could be over $5,000 richer!
    A new clue is released every two days.
    A new hunt begins every month.
    Over $5,000 in gold is out there!
    Register now, solve the clues, and go find the gold!
    You don't have to audition, you don't have to dive to the bottom of the ocean, you don't even have to bring a shovel! It's right out in the open, waiting for you to find it.

    Get in the Hunt!


    HAVE FUN!!

    Default Hello, everyone!

    And thanks to Tweleve.org for letting us use this awesome forum to announce the California Gold Hunt, the first real-life monthly treasure hunt!

    You get the clues online at http://www.californiagoldhunt.com, and just like in many other favorite treasure hunts, you have to travel to the exact location to find a drawstring purse containing one gold coin. Find that coin, call the phone number that's with it, and if you're a registered Hunter, then you've just won yourself $5,000, paid out in gold.

    It's not buried, it's in public, it's outdoors (sound familiar?), and we like to think that the best thing about the California Gold Hunt is that it will actually deliver a WINNER, guaranteed, EVERY MONTH.

    The clues will be easily solved, maybe a little more difficult in the early part of the month (then again, maybe not), but by the time the 15th and final clue rolls around on the 29th, that clue will be a picture of the exact location. Suffice to say, we don't think we'll ever really need that 15th clue.

    We're fairly confident that some very clever and very dedicated Hunters will find their treasure well before we have to do something so drastic as point exactly at the spot we've hidden the coin.

    The first California Gold Hunt begins on September 1. We will hide the coin and drawstring purse on that day, and release the first clue as well. A new clue will be released every 2 days until the coin is found. If found by accident, by a non-registered person, we'll have a backup location where we'll hide another coin, possibly with entirely new clues. Yes, we check on the location every day, to protect the integrity of the game, and to make sure that our players are searching for something that can actually be found!


    Although it's probably been over a year since I visited Tweleve last, I was most active in the days when ATT was winding down, right before the beetle was found. While I found ATT a very entertaining game, I was a bit frustrated at the open-endedness of it. Why couldn't a hunt be run that guaranteed a winner by a certain time? So I decided to do it myself.

    Unfortunately, I am not a wealthy ex-software developer with millions of dollars to give away. However, I did convince a few friends to put some money together to launch a hunt of our own. We have to restrict it to one geographic area, Southern California. I wish we could do it all over the U.S., but we just don't have those kind of resources. (Yet.)

    While the first month is free, we will be charging small entry fees to participate in future Hunts. Our aim is to grow into a monthly Hunt where we can give away $50,000 on a regular basis. Currently, we have set the price of future Hunts at only $5, or $10 for 3 Hunts. However, it is likely that before the end of the month, the new price will be $10 per hunt or $25 for 3. So if you want a big discount, please order now. We are also hoping to be able to raise our prize amounts. Currently, they are $5,000 for each month. Our goal is to raise enough money to offer $10,000, $15,000 and $20,000 hunts in October, November, and December, then continue growing the prize amounts through 2008.


    I apologize to Twelevers who can't get to California for the Hunt, but I know that many of you have family and friends there, so please spread the word. We would sure appreciate.

    I'll be happy to take any questions or suggestions. Please keep in mind that our website looks pretty basic...it is! We couldn't even afford a decent logo! We're putting literally every dollar we've got from investors into prizes and advertising. (Have you ever priced radio advertising in Southern California? Ouch.) But we can't give away a lot of money without a lot of players, and that means spending money, unless something spectacular happens, like Paris Hilton is caught wearing a CaliforniaGoldHunt.com shirt while wrestling with Lindsay Lohan, who is wearing a CaliforniaGoldHunt.com cap. (We're keeping our fingers crossed, but we're also preparing the advertising...)


    Thanks again to Tweleve...and welcome to the California Gold Hunt!
