The Ruyi treasure hunt offers an original approach to the city: off the beaten track but also covering many of the most important sights of the floating city. The Ruyi Treasure hunt will involve legends and mysteries that permeate the city. From the myth of the sad fairy to that of the lost column; from the story of the mortar that stopped an entire army to the Venetian sultanate. These and other stories are included in the special game book, an essential tool for experiencing the adventure of the hunt. Mobile phone messages will help you understand how to read the game book and so begin your journey of discovery. The game begins with an SMS which gives a clue as to the first stop on the itinerary. At each stop players will have to reply to a mystery question and send an answer by SMS in order to receive the next clue and so on towards the final goal. The game can be started at any time and you can choose the duration of the game depending on the time available from one to nine hours. The booklet allows for three games (every effort will be made to provide a different treasure hunt each time a new game is played). If you are in a group why not pit your wits against your travelling companions with two game books and select the 'Challenge' option which will start simultaneously, but different itineraries leading to the same final goal. Watch out for time penalties if you get the answers wrong!
