When this campaign is closed and you're interested in getting your at home mystery (escape game) The VOC Treasure, go to our website:
The VOC Treasure is an #AtHomeMystery treasure hunt. It is an adventure based on a true story that took place at the end of the Dutch Golden Age. It is a 1-4 player (maximum of 6) experience allowing you to play solo or coöperatively. Larger groups can compete or also work together using multiple boxes.
You need approximately 120 minutes or more to solve this mystery. It is suitable for adults and children from the age of 12 accompanied by an adult.
Hints are provided to ensure you won’t get permanently stuck mid-way through your quest.
Many of the V.O,C.'s (Dutch East India Company) ships with valuable treasures have sunk or got lost during their voyages. One of these ships, fully loaded with an unknown treasure, has been on the bottom of the ocean for centuries waiting to be found.
This is how your adventure begins...
This is your opportunity to become the next successful treasure hunter. Find the clues, solve the riddles and puzzles and discover the location, the treasure, the name of the ship and it's captain.
Inside the Box:
Everything from The VOC Treasure excluding the box, bottle, cotton map and the thumbtack. This package comes in an envelope and is shipped together with the box from the normal package. If you choose this pledge, the envelope is inside the shipping carton for the box. The shipping cost stays the same.
In The Netherlands this mystery has already been successfully published. This Kickstarter is the first offering of the English version of The VOC Treasure. We set the target amount low because this #athomemystery is mostly done and only some final translating, editing, formatting and play testing is needed to get it published. The funds will cover this.
Yes, that's right. I'm already preparing lots of boxes weekly for the Dutch market. They are all carefully put together by me personally to ensure all the puzzles, riddles and clues are in the chest.

Risks and challenges
The VOC Treasure is our first At Home Mystery funded via the Kickstarter platform but we have this mystery already published in The Netherlands.
The only risk factor is a delay in delivery due to unforeseen circumstances. Additionally, please note that we are still polishing the game so the final product could slightly differ from the images and video. However, we aim to provide you with the best possible product and any introduced changes will enhance your Treasure Hunt experience.
This Kickstarter project is run by Jachin Letwory from Modern Treasure Hunt from Zwolle, The Netherlands.
