Skull-n-Bones: Caribbean Adventure 2

 Our newest gridwide treasure hunt! At this time each year we normally have "S-n-B: The Pirate Hunt" but obviously that hunt has been replaced with this one. We wanted to expand to a broader spectrum of prizes but also find a theme that still included pirates.  

PICK A PATH AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE 
to get started!  (once the hunt starts)

Dates: Aug 18 - Sept 18, 2019

60 Stops - Our hunts are arranged in paths of no more than 15 stores each and hunters have let us know they love being able to do the hunt in smaller chunks. Each path is Female only, Home and Garden, or Male & Female or Unisex.

Start Location: The last hunt prize in each path will contain a landmark for the gateway. You can grab a teleport to another path from there! Just click one of the beach huts. If the signs arent rezzing, right click the invisible prims surrounding the huts to see path name and type of prize.
Help Group is Kastle & Co Treasure Hunters and you can touch any sign for an invite.

Cost: Each prize is 3L. That money goes directly to the merchant to help offset some of their costs. It takes 3+ hunters to recoup the cost of a single upload, so no one's making money off you. It just helps a bit. THANK YOU.

Candy Cane 10

OMG!!!   OMG!!!   OMG!!!  

SL's favorite Festival of Stripes turns 10!! It's been an amazing decade. So many different stores have participated over the years and given so many memorable prizes. I founded this hunt with my friend Lynn Pooley and it was the first hunt we ever organized. Many of you may remember that Lynn (of Dirty Little Secret Hunts) and I were an amazing team in the world of SL treasure hunts and helped these events evolve into what they are today. It all started here, with the Candy Cane Hunt.

(We were even featured on the cover of Glance Magazine for organizing this hunt!) Here is the image they sent to the presses lol. This was Candy Cane 2.

to get started! 

WHATS SPECIAL THIS YEAR?

Lots! For starters, although the info says a cap of 80 stores, all approved will be added to the hunt.

This year Kastle & Co Events started a new feature: the hunt gateway. The gateway for Candy Cane will not only have teleports to each hunt path, it will also contain a small festival area where merchants will set up an amazing holiday market!

Also at the gateway you will find a gacha arcade! Try your luck for some desirable trinkets, gadgets and whatever else our merchants cook up between now and then :)

We plan to have free fun wearables to make your hunting experience even more festive. Certain stores will give (at the sign) something like a candy cane drink or maybe candy cane sunglasses or a hat etc. You can make a candy cane fashion statement while you searched for striped treasure!

Stay tuned for more details!

MERCHANTS: click the tab at the top for info and app. For the love of Dog please please please read the requirements before applying. I hate declining stores.

AND TELEPORTS

Celebrating world culture since 2014! Our World Tour sends hunters seeking treasure on all 7 continents with a maximum of 20 stops for each continent. In other words, our hunt is broken into 5 shorter paths instead of one looooong one. (Australia, Antarctica and S America are together in 1 path.)

  • Most stores provide a male and female or unisex prize. There will be a few that are female only. Check their hunt kiosk for prize pics before hunting if you're male
  • INSTRUCTIONS: Just select a path at the top of the page. Don't forget that Australia, Antarctica and S America are together in one path. Africa, Asia, Europe and North America are listed separately. So easy to do one path a time!
