Somewhere in the wilderness, an eccentric millionaire has buried $50 million worth of bearer bonds, gold, historic artifacts and art treasures. 

You’re going to hunt for it, from the comfort of your own homes. 

There are a lot of other people also searching for the treasure, too. Work with them for more clues, but don’t trust them. If they get the treasure first, they get millions of dollars. Second place gets nothing.

Eccentric Millionaire is an online game of logical deduction and social deception. One player acts as the host and organizer of the game. They will also play the role of the Eccentric Millionaire. The other players take on the role of treasure hunters. The game is played online, through chat systems like Discord or Slack, and via online map tools like Google Maps. Gameplay takes place over days or weeks, as the treasure hunters uncover more clues and zero in on the location of the treasure. Eventually, one player will find the treasure and win the game.

The host player secretly selects a location, using Google Maps or similar online mapping system. The other players compete to try to guess the secret location. 

Treasure hunter players roleplay as people working to solve the eccentric millionaire’s riddles and find the hidden treasure. Each treasure hunter belongs to two groups, one based on background and one based on motivation. Each round of the game, all hunters with the same background will learn one clue and all hunters with the same motivation will learn a different clue.
