Thank you to Sony Pictures for hosting our UNCHARTED family movie night this weekend.  The movie studio provided us with the film to view on Digital, but before seeing it we had to unlock the download code by engaging in a fun scavenger hunt created by Wild Optimists solving a variety of puzzles in our hunt for the treasure. UNCHARTED is available now on Digital and will be available May 10 on Blu-Ray and 4K Ultra HD.

In UNCHARTED, street-smart Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor "Sully" Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to recover a fortune amassed by Ferdinand Magellan and lost 500 years ago by the House of Moncada. What starts as a heist job for the duo becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Santiago Moncada (Antonio Banderas), who believes he and his family are the rightful heirs. If Nate and Sully can decipher the clues and solve one of the world's oldest mysteries, they stand to find $5 billion in treasure and perhaps even Nate's long-lost brother...but only if they can learn to work together.

Our Wild Optimists scavenger hunt started off with a mysterious package that arrived in the mail with clues from Nathan Drake that included post cards and maps like the treasure hunters use in UNCHARTED. Deciphering these clues were the key to unlocking our treasure. To help us in our race to the treasure of unlocking our digital code for UNCHARTED for our family movie night, Nathan threw in a few tools in his package that included an antique key, Bubble Yum gum, a flashlight and pen.

It was time for some brain teasers! We had a sticky time tracing a path on a map. Then there were clues to discover within the post cards. Plus, we had to search through diagrams of a church and catacombs.

Finally, after a half hour of scouring through the items Nathan sent to us, we had the answer! Yes! We found our treasure, a download code creatively hidden within the items in our mailer, so that we could watch UNCHARTED for our family movie night. An exciting way to kick off our evening with the family sleuthing together to solve a mystery.

As we watched UNCHARTED, it was amusing to see how the clues in our scavenger hunt related to scenes in the movie. It was a nice way to start off our family movie night by solving our own scavenger hunt before watching an adventure movie about searching for a treasure trove. A fun game and entertaining movie made for an evening of quality family time.
