The Golden Oyster

Launched: May 2020

Prize: Antique oyster brooch plus a cash prize based on the number of players (currently £250)

Treasure location: ‘Somewhere in Whitstable, Kent’ but the answer is submitted by email so the game is playable worldwide.

Format: A booklet of 22 picture clues.  

Typical clue:

A clue revealing a location in the seaside town of Whitstable

Notes: A fairly new armchair hunt, in a classic Masquerade style with cryptic anagrams and pictures. It appears that 21 clues reveal locations in this small town, but it may be tricky to work out how those locations link together to reveal the solution.

Discussion: There’s a forum for this hunt at Mysterious Writings.
