"Many people have theorized through the ancient Mayan calendars that 2012 is, in fact, the end of the world. However, we believe that 2012 is a year in which many will find their tone. This hunt represents a chance for everyone to discover new tone tools—and some incredible treasure." — David Orpheus, MMXI

Once you've solved them, submit your answers through the "Dig for Treasure" menu. Once we have a winner, we'll announce the prize and the answers — and then another hunt will begin, with exciting new prizes!
