(The first riddle will be given with the Patmos riddles, whereas the second riddle will be given at the end of each film).

1 day: 28/7/2013 (Sunday, with a common start time for all groups.)

The goal of the day is to find the SINGLE key which opens the treasure chest. The team which finds this key will win.

Teams which have gathered at least 150 points in the previous rounds will have the possibility to participate in the search for the lost key.

Teams will be notified of the location and start time for the search.

If a team does not accumulate enough points, it will be at a disadvantage, time-wise.

The riddles will be presented daily at the Festival Office, and will be posted on the IFFP website. The solutions will be revealed at the end of each day, after the film which the final riddle concerns.

Teams may sign up for the Treasure Hunt even if they have missed the first day of the game. These teams will be given the riddles from the previous days, allowing them to accumulate enough points for the final day. A team can gather up to 65 points for each missed day, leading to a total possible score of 215, including an extra 20 points for the previous day’s film question (65+65+85=215).
