The Lost Treasure of John Augur

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…

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.

    Great gift for Father's Day

    Sent this to my dad for Father's Day and he loved it. Every time I checked in (this is not his first MPC experience, he filled me in on his progress. He even roped my siblings into the hunt.

    My husband loved it!

    He says: This was easily my best Birthday gift this year, or in quite some time. My wife arranged it so that the first package would show up about a month BEFORE my birthday, with the others leading up to the date, which allowed me to essentially have a present that lasted for the whole month--which made the whole experience way more fun. :)

    The overall "mystery" of this thing was great, with the first package providing no real context and really just coming off as a mistaken delivery out of the blue. Every single thing that shows up feels legitimate, with each newspaper clipping and artifact carefully made to look and feel real, and everything 100% committed to the fiction--nothing ever feels like "here's a manufactured puzzle for you to solve," but it's all so earnest and well researched enough to feel solid and believable. It's also secretive enough that you can safely use internet research to learn more about the real-world clues without accidentally stumbling across the solution to the puzzles.

    I found the puzzles themselves a ton of fun to solve and satisfying when you figure them out, and the narrative that you unveil over the course of the different packages equally satisfying. The whole thing actually made me wish for a "sequel" treasure hunt that would narratively link to this one.

    Just one tip for people thinking about buying this: In the final delivery there is a large envelope labeled "OPEN THIS LAST." When they say "last," they don't mean "after you've opened…

    My Sailor's Heart Loved It!!

    I grew up on the ocean front and have been sailing and diving since childhood so like all things to do with the briny depths, I was thrilled for the entirety of this experience. The deliveries were timed just right to keep me eager for the next step but with plenty of time to dig deep into the history of Cpt. Auger and the details of each shipment. Like all MPC experiences (this was my fifth) the puzzles are challenging but not at all in a frustrating way, and the quality of the material/artifacts/documents is always superb. If you like history, particularly Buccaneer history and want to get lost in it for a while then I highly recommend this experience!

    Mysterious is the right word

    This is such a fun adventure and everyone contributed something. We all had a delightful adventure. So rewarding when you figure it out. The best part is that you can work together, but fighting is just not something that happens. Worth every penny, there is so much detail in the artifacts and letters, etc. I wish this was my job!
