If you scroll through the blog, you can look or search for TREASURE (all caps only).

All three of my pieces fit together using MS Paint. No scaling needed. Maybe it's how you printed them that is the problem.

Make sure you have "Transparent selection" turned on Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

"The first time "treasure" popped up there wasn't a map piece on the item page. You had to be there."


Just a lie to try to weed out competitors.

The word TREASURE should be in all caps.

It's such a mysterious, arcane, ancient secret, even I was unaware of it!



Aha! Thank you Jason I think I've got it. Still not sure how to put the pieces together, but I'll figure it out...maybe. Yay I'm so excited!

Lol, I've got all three pieces so far and have them put together, but even looking at the thing put together I'm not really sure what I'll need to do once the other pieces are found...

Also it looks like we're going to need several more pieces, so let's hope things move quicker than that macbook did from now on...

Here is a tip for those who are using paint: The select dropdown has a "Transparent Selection" option. When checked, this will make the white transparent and allows you to connect the pieces easier. HTH

Can I assume the Buccaneers of Caribbean will be pirate themed. Like rum flavored gum and some bootlegged copies of The Avengers.

So what do we do when we find it? We can't click on it. Do we save the image or something?

here is my guidance for those requesting assistance/hand outs. Think what you would do if handed torn pieces of a real map IRL. Would you click on it? Would you look at it? Would you put it in your mouth? Would you burn the edges for the cool distressed look?
Look at the sale item, find the clues and assemble them logically. And GL getting my Booty Of Crap!!

They are cleverly hidden with the other images.

By me guesstimation, there will be 5-6 more pieces to go (unless there will be some very large pieces revealed). I wonder if it's possible to find the treasure now, like the map leads to somewhere that is currently available?

I'm thinking it will only work when all pieces are revealed.

Will there always be a fragment? I have clicked on the details page and see no map.

I kind of hope it's up already; that way if someone is really clever [not me] they could find it early, rather than everyone racing for it at once.

I don't understand how we "win". Do we have to have both maps to understand it all? I don't get it.........

I don't think that is the destination, but possibly the origination. I do think the destination is shown elsewhere though.
