There's A 20K Treasure Hunt Happening In Maine!


Have an amateur obsession with mystery and adventure? Well pack your bags -- because there’s a real-life treasure hunt going on in Maine, and the prize is $20,000!

Kurt and Kelly Stokes of Newcastle, Maine, through Dirigo Treasures LLC, are hosting a treasure hunt to promote their company and benefit the Maine Cancer Foundation. Here’s how it works: Through the company’s Facebook page, you buy either a deck of cards for $39.99 or flashcards for $19.99, which give you a map and all the clues you need to find the treasure.

Seems the couple created the game to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Maine’s statehood. (Newser)
