There are a few rules and caveats to this game that will take some effort to understand.  Please take the time to READ THIS POST CAREFULLY before playing.  Any questions, hit the discussion thread.

There are 400 numbered chests sitting in a room and your fellow troopers are hiding in them.  Find them!

OBJECTIVE
There are two objectives to this game and each comes with a $10 prize.  #1 : Be the last trooper still hiding at the end of the game.   #2 : Find the most hiding spots of other troopers during the course of this game.  It is possible for there to be a tie in either objective which would result in splitting of the prize money.  Either way, $20 will be given away!

HOW TO PLAY
At any given time (either once per day or every other day - or longer depending on how many power-ups need to be verified) I will announce the beginning of a new Treasure Seek round.  Once I have announced the round, everybody that is still hiding may make one guessing post during that round at any time.  Your post must be in this format:

OPEN CHEST : 250

The number represents your guess for that round.  If your guess uncovers another trooper or more (yes there may be more than one hiding in the same chest) you will get a point and that trooper will be eliminated from the game.  It is up to you to keep track of which numbers have already been guessed.  Seeking a number that has already been named will only result in you wasting your turn for that round.  If your post has been edited, your guess will not count.

POWER-UPS
It is possible to earn power-ups in this game.  To activate a power-up, you must post in the following format:

POWER-UP : SUPERSEEKER (SEEK : #)
or
POWER-UP : SHIELD
or
POWER-UP : PEEPING TOM (USERNAME)

The three available power-ups are as follows:

SUPERSEEKER : Complete 3 survey seekers in a day and get one FREE seek.  It must be used during the same day that it is earned and it must be immediately followed by your free seek.  You may use more than one of these powerups in one round.  If you attempt to use this power-up and you have not actually earned it... YOU WILL BE ELIMINATED

SHIELD : Complete 10 offers in a day and get immunity from elimination.  It must be used during the same day that it is earned.  Once activated, the trooper earns a shield for the current round and the next 2 rounds and it protects them from being eliminated.  You may not use it if you see that your number has already been picked.  The shield must be up beforehand.  If your number is chosen, the shield is removed and the troopers are notified that one of the last rounds guesses were correct but the trooper was saved from elimination.  All of those numbers should then be considered as potential hiding places for that trooper!  If you attempt to use this power-up and you have not actually earned it... YOU WILL BE ELIMINATED

PEEPING TOM : Complete any 5 Study Storms in a day to use this power-up.  It must be used during the same day that it is earned.  Be sure to include the name of the trooper you are peeping on.  Through careful study and observation, you are able to help everybody determine which 100 chests that trooper is hiding in.  If the same trooper is peeped on a second time, it will be narrowed down to 50 and a third and final time will narrow it down to 25!  You may use more than one of these powerups in one round.  If you attempt to use this power-up and you have not actually earned it... YOU WILL BE ELIMINATED

TRAPS AND TREASURES
There may be Traps and Treasures hidden in specific chests as well.  Treasures may be power-ups or virtual currency for use on TreasureTrooper (scales, gold coins, pearls, etc).  The potential traps are as follows:

ICE TRAP :  You open the chest and get blasted with this frosty trap.  You are frozen and will be unable to open another chest during the next round.

HOMING BEACON :  You open the chest and are immediately injected with a homing beacon.  Everybody is told which 100 chests you are hiding in: (example : Treasure is hiding somewhere in chests 100-199!).  Get hit with another beacon, and your position will be further triangulated.

GREED BOMB :  When this is activated, money will fall from the sky and you will have a choice to make.  If you are the first one to post GREED! you will get the money.  Anybody who posts GREED! (even if you aren't the first) is leaving their hiding place to make a grab for the money.  In the process, your hiding place is revealed and you are eliminated!

ELIMINATION
If somebody correctly opens the chest where you are hiding, you will be eliminated!  If you pick a chest that does not exist or post anything other than what is detailed above, you will be eliminated!  If you attempt to guess more than once in a round without the appropriate power-up, you will be eliminated!  If you attempt to use a power-up you did not earn, you will be eliminated!  If you look at me funny, you will be.... well just don't look at me funny. :P Good luck everybody!

Disclaimer:  If you do not participate in at least seven rounds by the time only one active trooper is left, you will evacuate your chest and be disqualified for inactivity and ineligible to win.  Active participation will only be counted on valid posts within the rules.
