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.

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.

Skull -n- Bones: The Black Widow 3

Just in time for Halloween! Our spookiest of treasure hunts creeps back for only the third time and its all about death, murder, spiders, black, evil and/or cunning females and a spinning web of deceit that may cost you dearly... or maybe not that much :)

All prizes are female or unisex. The are NO MALE PRIZES

PICK A PATH AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE 
to get started!  


Dates: Sept 22 - Oct 31, 2018

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 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 tombstones. If they arent rezzing, right click and edit to see path name.
Help Group is Kastle & Co Treasure Hunters and you can touch any sign for an invite.

Cost: Each prize is 5L. That money goes directly to the merchant to help offset some of their costs. It takes 2 hunters to recoup the cost of a single upload, so no one's making money off you. It just helps a bit. THANK YOU.
