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…

Details

  • 3 mailing experience
  • 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.

    Fantastic!

    Above and beyond what I was expecting!

    Bought as a birthday present for my partner - the quality of the items are fantastic, the immersion in the experience was excellent, the effort put in to each detail is incredible. We spent hours going over each piece and working out how they fitted into the puzzle. We now have pieces displayed in our home and the rest safely stored in a box so we can remind ourselves of our amazing pirate adventure! /

    It's hard to go into too much detail without giving away any spoilers but - trust me - you won't regret buying this product!

    My only issue would be that it states there are four mailings, yet mailing 3 and 4 arrived in the same package, so it's really only three.

    What a coincidence

    We got this for my mom for Mother’s Day and she just got her first package, there was a paper clipping that just happens to be her birthday. It made everything even better. I can’t wait until she calls when she gets the next package.

    Amazing experience start to finish

    The puzzle, pacing and story, suck you in right from the start. The artifacts are absolutely incredible.

    This gave me the greatest entertainment and delight through the covid lock down. I was hoping to feel a sense of adventure and accomplishment and boy oh boy, did it deliver.

    Im in the process of framing and displaying the artifacts, they are that good if not better.

    Wonderful Gift

    I bought this for my best friend(we now live across the country from each other) for his birthday. He thought it was, in his words, "top shelf stuff". I have yet to see the shipments in person but, for a picky, smart and, fine tuned person who loves puzzles, he thought this was one of the coolest things he had ever gotten. I have seen pictures of some of the things that come in this particular box and...well...wow. I was pretty impressed. I felt every dollar spent was well spent. He's very proud to show off the pieces in his home. Thank you Mysterious Package Co.! I'm going to be giving these for gifts for awhile now. There are so many cool story lines, it's easy to pick out a person for each one. What a great idea! I recommend this to anyone who wants a puzzle or just a cool conversational piece....Like Sean said, "it's top shelf stuff!"
