i invented this game 'Treasure Island', but it's not the usual Robert Louis Stevenson treasure hunt - this time we are going after the Lost Dutchman's Mine - i found it using the Arizona Circlestone as my guiding marker. i have shown this to reputable colleagues and they agree it's a winner, although somewhat complex in its design. 'Can't eat gold when you need water'. Today we find a treasure map absolutely saturated with clues and we go ferreting out the 'blinds' from the 'blind'. None so blind as he who cannot see. Yes, it's a Phi-eyed view of the Superstitions, aptly named. You could be very wealthy - just ask any of the Phoenicians of Phoenix - or very dead like many before you. Shortly, the maps - under Pic 1 and Pic 2. Every treasure hunt begins with a map or maps - just ask the inventors of Google Earth.
Have fun... James Blunt's 'All the Lost Souls' is the best music for this one. 'As time goes by i'll always be in a club with you in 1973. Here we go again'. The clues of the day will be found in this gallery.
