A Legendary Lost Treasure

Dutch Schultz stashed millions before he was murdered by fellow mobsters in 1932. Your team will visit actual sites of mobster activity in the East Village of New York City during a hunt for the treasure.

A journal from the late treasure hunter James Sherry has been found hidden in Manhattan’s East Village. It contains a missing transcript of Schultz’s deathbed ramblings, cryptic puzzle objects stolen from mafia families and a treasure map drawn by the Dutchman himself! His incoherent ramblings are believed to contain the coded whereabouts of his buried millions.
