After the success of Legend of the Secret Jewels, we thought we’d outwitted Leonard Skunkbeard for the last time, but this spooky season he’s back, and he’s up to his dastardly tricks once more. Leonard has been stealing precious artefacts from different countries and hiding them in deep, dark, booby-trapped tombs around the world. Fortunately, he’s not as clever as he thinks, he’s left a trail of clues and it’s up to you to find them and solve this mystery. With the help of the brilliant Charlie Black-Toe, you’ll need to instruct her on which countries to visit and help her navigate the creepy caves and haunted hideouts to get to the treasure hidden deep inside.
From Paris to Mexico, Beijing to Egypt, even as far as Cornwall(!) - it’s time to channel your inner Indiana Jones, Lara Croft, and Nathan Drake to crack the codes and face the challenges. Ever wondered what snails taste like? Fancy making a spine-chilling Egyptian mummy? Or building your own Chinese Dragon Kite? There’ll be drop scone making, insect eating, riddle breaking and tin mining along the trail to solve this global mystery.
Can you solve the clues and master the challenges to find each artefact? Will you help Charlie brave the deepest, darkest tombs around the world? It’s time to do a bit of trick-or-treating of our own and show this rotten Leonard what we’re made of!
HUNTING FOR ARTEFACTS AROUND THE WORLD, READING MAPS AND DISCOVERING ANCIENT CUSTOMS TO SOLVE THE MYSTERY, THIS MISSION IS PERFECT FOR ASPIRING TREASURE HUNTERS AND EXPLORERS!
