Always wanted to go on a treasure hunt? Now you can at Whisper of the Guardians!
The 3rd event of its kind, brought to life by LockdownSG and Think Out Events, this year’s epic adventure will take place in and around Chinatown.
Previously, we wrote about the premise of this adventure. Essentially, a shop house owner found an old scroll containing information leading to a hidden treasure that’s been left behind since WWII. You have been hired to decipher the scroll and find the elusive treasure.
Our DiscoverSG ambassadors took up the challenge and had a blast journeying through Chinatown, trekking past famous (and some not so famous) paths on their quest to find the booty.
Having gone through the experience themselves, here are their golden tips to finding the treasure–and don’t worry, there are no spoilers ahead!
Cheryl: “It’s Very Challenging.”
“It was very challenging–perhaps a little too challenging because we had to get loads of hints from the gamemasters.
Get ready to crack your brains and burn some calories!”
Dawn: “Interact With Your Environment.”
“The game used real, physical things that are there in Chinatown to help you find clues for the next step.
Be prepared to have your brains fried at the end of the day. I don’t think it’s easy, but it’s worth the try!”
Shivon: “Dress Comfortably And Prepare To WALK”
“The ‘touring’ of this game will actually be like a history excursion which makes studying our history damn fun!
Dress comfortably and prepare to stroll down the whole of Chinatown. You’ll be surprised to find a lot of places where you can take nice OOTDs.”
Jia Min: “Familiarize Yourself With Chinatown Beforehand”
“We basically learnt how to read maps for those of us who didn’t already know how, and practice our map skills for those who do.
Pro Tip: Read more about Chinatown! Maybe know the roads, dress comfortably, don’t bring a big bag, and most importantly, enjoy yourself!”
Vanessa: “Work As A Team”
“I liked how it required us to think thoroughly for each challenge and puzzle and the whole group contributed in one way or another.
Before starting, it would be good to mentally prepare yourself for a lot of time spent on this adventure! And be mentally prepared for very difficult challenges.”
