    I did say I would post details on this on Monday, but unfortunately I was delayed by an annoying Internet Explorer bug. I think (hope) everything works correctly now. You lucky people are the first to hear about this, as I haven't even blogged about it yet.

    Hoard Hunter (v1.0) is a WordPress / WordPress MU theme and plugin that powers an online game of chance.

    http://hoardhunter.com

    It is designed to allow people raising money for charity to have an easily set-up (and hosted if required) online treasure hunt game.

    I am running the initial game to raise funds for Oxfam and the Gurkha welfare trust and it was originally developed to go alongside the other fund raising I am doing (see: http://hoardhunter.com/about/ ).

    It is, however, a generic system and so I have set it to integrate with WordPress MU and allow multiple games to be played at the same time using MU's subdomains.

    I am currently only allowing manual sign ups as I want to ensure that it is only being used for charitable purposes (and no con-men start fleecing people).

    Have a look and let me know what you think.

    The current site is a LIVE game, so if you would like a chance to win a 2Gb iPod shuffle then please enter.

    If you could, it would really help if you could blog about this site / system or pass the link on to friends / family.

    If anyone would like a version of the system, then feel free to contact me.

    In later versions I hope to introduce more of a skill level to the game.
