Second Life Hints for Second Life Treasure Hunt - You Could Win an AMD Spider PC

Here are a few tips to find all the game stations in the Second Annual AMD Treasure Hunt Game in Second Life (shhh, don't tell anyone!).
  1. The first game station is also the treasure hunt's billboard, which is just steps away from the island's teleport hub. Click on that billboard to get started.
  2. Become familiar with the Second Life mini-map and full map. Some of the clues require you to triangulate a station's location based upon Second Life's X/Y/Z grid coordinates. (X = east/west, Y = north/south, Z = elevation)
  3. Be sure to turn your sound on - one of the clues requires that you listen for a certain ambient sound to find the stations.
Best of luck!
