A trial run of the first TABBY treasure hunt is about to begin in Vienna Austria. In a few days, original paintings will be hidden within the city and the map and starting point posted here. The first to reach the end will get to keep what they find. So get outside, get to know the city and get the treasure, there are no losers.
Update: The first two hunts have been completed. There will be more in the future so check the site to see when the next hunt will begin.
Update: Spots 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 have been found
Added : First to visit all 5 locations and send photos of the tiles to TABBYhunt@outlook.de will get a small prize in the mail. Everybody else to send in pictures of all locations (this can be done in the future as well) will have their names added and immortalized here.
First to collect all 5 stations:

If you find one of these treasures first, there will be a message added which explains how you can mark it as found. This is what you are looking for and how it is packaged:
