    Default Tweleve's Armchair Treasure Hunting Encyclopedia

    The Armchair Treasure Hunting Encyclopedia



    I always found it difficult to find information on past hunts so I got the wild idea to compile all the information that I could find into one location for my reference. I started this but was soon overwhelmed when I realized the amount of information I had to look for. This project fell into my “To Do Eventually” pile. C approached me wanting to become even more central to the ATH community including past hunts. I think my Encyclopedia project would fit perfectly into this aspect of Tweleve so now it’s the community's project. The goal is to make the Armchair Treasure Hunting Encyclopedia to be available to all Tweleve members as a downloadable pdf. I need your help though! I've listed the missing information needed to complete the Encyclopedia and if you have or know where to find the information please submit it to me through PM. I think working together we can create a very good reference tool for our Tweleve community.

    For each hunt we need the following information:
    Title
    1) Picture of Cover or Title (300x300 or larger)
    2) Author
    3) Publish/Release Date
    4) Treasure
    5) Solved/Unsolved/Lost
    6) History (a little bit on how the book came about)
    7) Puzzle
    Solution

    If a hunt is not included here please let me know, I'm sticking to only hunts that are done/expired at the moment. Any hunt that does not have enough information will be listed in the Appendix with what information we do have but not included in past hunts section.

    The Armchair Treasure Hunt Club (UK based) has a similar list, too.

    Thanks everyone! I compiled the current list from both Mark's and the ATH Club's sites. The problem is there are sometimes conflicting information. I was hoping to get some people that own a copy of hunt to submit the information so we know it comes directly from the source rather than relying on secondhand information. If it can't be found elsewhere than we obviously use the secondhand information but let's see if you can get source information first.
