    Playing Volvo's The Hunt?

    Any other MC'ers playing Volvo's new POtC tie in game,... THE HUNT? I've started. It's alot of fun. You get to guess at real clues to try to solve the puzzle that gets you closer to finding a Volvo hiden some where in the world. Check out the Link http://thehunt.volvocars.net/us/thehunt

    For those of you who are playing, what do you think of it so far?
    Do you think the questions are easy, hard, or just stupid?

    Re: Playing Volvo's The Hunt?

    It's ok there was a thread already. I have a few friends at work who are playing this, it's got them really interested. Funny thing is they probably will sell it to a Disney fan.

    Re: Volvo Treasure Hunt

    Can you, perhaps, give any details? I haven't heard of any "hunt for the volvo" treasures.

    Re: Volvo Treasure Hunt

    They have buried a Volvo XC90 in a shipping container somewhere in the world. You go to a Volvo dealer for a map. First person who finds it get the car. And it is all tricked out with Pirates graphics. I can't do it since I work for Disney. Go to : http://thehunt.volvocars.net/us/thehunt

    Re: Volvo Treasure Hunt

    I was thinking it's buried somewhere at Volvo's headquarters and they'll just dig it up and sell it after it's done. After all, no one can legally dispute it as long as they bury it. There's no way I'm going searching for it because it could be anywhere and my best bet is that it's on Volvo property to prevent someone from digging it up. If it is an actual contest and they really have buried the SUV somewhere on the planet, I think it's quite foolish to bury a $40,000 vehicle. I'm not sure how airtight those containers are but a car simply doesn't like to be stored underground.

    Re: Volvo Treasure Hunt

    I read about this when they announced it week or so ago and it is a lot more specific than "its buried somewhere - find it". IIRC, it goes something like this: You register, you get clues. If you figure out the clue, you move on to the next round. After so many rounds, there are a certain amount of people left (tie breakers factor in here) and those people are flown to the location area where it is buried. They are let lose from that point and the first to find it wins it.

    Re: Volvo Treasure Hunt

    I heard about that. I really wouldn't care to get the vehicle. If I did, I'd probably sell it for money anyway. From what tinkermonkey said about it, it sounds interesting but not really worth while. Then again, that is my opinion. Maybe people do really want to try and win!
