They say there is no honour among thieves, and in many cases that is true. In the early 18th century, the most disreputable dregs ever to sail the high seas carry out an impressive heist together. There was much debate about the success of their scheme, and the treasure that they set out to plunder has been lost to time and tall tales.

Now, years later, clues have emerged that hint to the location of the lost cache of riches. All you have to do is piece them together…

  • This Experience includes several puzzles as part of the narrative

Synopsis

Two women, and three men: five maps for five pirates, from Europe, Africa, and Asia. They left one of their own marooned on an island. When he was taken away in chains and charged with piracy, the secret of his treasure was lost, seemingly for all time.

But John Augur’s story did not end there, and one clever treasure-hunter knows it.

Prepare for an adventure on the high seas set in both the 18th century and in the modern day, as Kelsey Franklin retraces the legendary pirate’s steps. Will she find treasure to plunder, or face a watery doom? The tale is revealed through documents, diary entries and maps, and concludes with an artifact that embodies the exploits and excitement of the golden age of piracy.

Audience

The Lost Treasure of John Augur is ideal for a family to experience together, however it is too demanding for young readers to explore on their own. Your recipient will enjoy this if they are fans of pirates, treasure-hunting, or adventure.

    Excellent family fun

    The anticipation of the next package arrival was great, the story is wonderful and the company is awesome. Neil Patrick Harris, is that how you wanted me to say it? Be safe.

    The anticipation nearly killed me

    This package had a very strong story line filled with LARGE puzzles to unpack and I had a blast with each mailing. I laughed at some of the things that arrived (a rather large map in particular) and when I sat down to solve the mystery I did not get up until it was done. I also found when sharing this puzzle with my sister that she noticed things I have not so I encourage you to do this with others. Excellent work!
