According to the organizers, the OpenSim Treasure Hunt is a way to get more hypergrid-enabled grids get involved in some fun and bring in traffic to some perhaps lesser-known grids or regions.

The original inspiration for the hunt came up at a taping of the In-World Review, with host Mal Burns, Tangle Grid co-founder Leslie Kling and Hypergrid Business editor Maria Korolov — that’s me.

“We will supply the OpenSim Treasure Hunt Box that will have everything you need in it and a text file to help you understand the rules and what to do for the OpenSim Treasure Hunt,” said Kling.

Check out the rules and download the Treasure Hunt Stand IAR on this page. There is also one on Hyperica, at the hypergrid address hg.hyperica.com:8022.

Tangle Grid is also hosting the Air & Space Expo, starting Monday, Feb. 1 and ending Feb. 21.

    I just love the ‘spyglass’ icon that one must locate to get their Hunt points! A wonderful well conceived HG Hunt for all to enjoy! Congratulations to Lesile Kling, Maria Korolov and Mal Burns for putting it all together!

    Still alot of time left for you hunters to go around and collect points. If you are not sure if you have hit all the locations click on your name and you will see an info. icon. Click on that and it will tell you all the regions and grids you have missed. Have great fun and happy hunting.
