    The Game

    okay....this will be fairly tough....

    You will need VERY GOOD maps...as the location will be very specific

    The item is pertinent to the location, however for strategy's sake you may want to focus on the location first....

    As you only have one question a day...ask wisely...every answer will help you narrow down the search

    Keep a close eye on the answers, each one will be important in determining the outcome.

    BTW: If you get a YES answer then you can ask another question within the 24 hours.
