    Default The Case of the Missing Maps - Available now!

    Have fun and good luck!
    Tweleve is pleased to announce its first official armchair treasure hunt, The Case of the Missing Maps. This new hunt was designed exclusively for Tweleve by forum member and frequent contributor, Brady Emmett, known on the forums as moscow32. The puzzle, with three striking downloadable pages, will challenge and delight puzzle solvers of all ages and abilities.

    "I combined my love for maps with my love of puzzle solving for this hunt," said Emmett. "I was first drawn to armchair treasure hunting in 2005 by Michael Stadther's A Treasure's Trove, and have since participated in many other hunts, often alongside other Tweleve forum members. I thought this would be a way to give back to the treasure hunting community."

    A fervent proponent of collaborative solving, Emmett hid a token within the continental United states with the hopes that a group of puzzle solvers would work together to solve the mystery of the missing maps. The person or group who retrieves the token, and follows the redemption instructions, will be awarded a prize of $250.

    The Case of the Missing Maps is available for download now at http://www.lulu.com/content/1584188 for a price of $3.
    We look forward to this being the beginning of a great year of TweleveHunts. Happy Holidays and Happy Hunting!

    Just as a clarification, you will have to create an account at Lulu.com to purchase and download the puzzle. Doing this will ensure that your personal information is protected.

    After making your purchase, you should be able to download the three jpg files to your personal computer.

    The first puzzle for me was finding out how to download the files, so to make things easier for everybody else, here is some help.
    Once you order the Missing Maps, go to "My Lulu" and you will get a screen with all the products you have bought (see mine with Brady's and Paul's books/maps). There click on the orange link and that will take you to a page where to see the pages of the Missing maps:

    I heard a rumor that a sitewide e-mail went out announcing this. Did anyone get one?

    Nice work, Brady. I downloaded my copy this morning. Please nobody solve this until I get back from Mexico. Better yet, until after Christmas.
