OK, here's how it works. Somewhere on the Reeko's Mad Scientist Lab site there is
a hidden pot of gold. In fact, there are actually several hidden pots of gold. All
you've got to do is find as many as you can. Be forewarned - they are not easy to
find (hence the reason we call them 'hidden'). In fact, some may be found offsite
so click on all the links you can find!
OK Reeko, where should I look? Everywhere! Some may be easy to find, others will
be extremely difficult. Some may be there one minute and gone the next! They may
be hidden 'in' pictures, behind pictures, or within the text of an experiment. Some
may magically appear when you hold your mouse
cursor over curious words or sentences. If you need some help then check
out these tips.
OK Reeko, what do I do when I find one? Hmmm, let's see (we're making up the rules
as we go along...). When you find a Pot of Gold, click on it (note: some Pots of
Gold may be kind or difficult to click on - keep trying!) After clicking on the
Pot of Gold you will see a secret message. With each secret message there will be
a code word. Write down the code word and save it. When you think you've found all
the Pots of Gold (or you're at your wits end), go
to this page and fill out the form listing your name and the code words
you found. High scores will appear on teh Pot of Gold Hall of Fame page.
OK Reeko, sounds like fun. Who all can play? Everyone! One little thing though.
There are a couple of Pots of Gold that only Internet Explorer users will be able
to find. There are some very technical reasons behind this which I can't
give away (ok, to be honest with you - I don't completely understand why). But we
don't want to ignore our Netscape users either! A Navigator version is being built
right now! But for now, Netscape users will still be able to find over 80% of the
Pots of Gold on our site.
OK Reeko, what's the point? What do I get out of it? Hmmmm. Let's see...... How
about fame and fortune? The person who find the most Pots of Gold get their names
added to the Pot of Gold Hall of Fame
page! In fact, check out the page now so you can get an idea of how may Pots of
Gold have been discovered to date.
And kids, don't forget to check out Reeko's Net Safety
Policy. These are the rules that all little scientists should be aware
of before posting personal information online.
Good Luck and happy hunting!
