Hunting!Here are some simple steps to help you get on your way:

1) Make sure your battery is 100% charged.2) The Market Place (IP24 2DT) is a good place to start, but its only a suggestion.

3) Open the Munzee App to access the map and list screen and zoom in to your location: list will show the closest Munzees to you and map will show you where they are.

4) Somewhere in the surroundings is a Thetford Trail Munzee. On the Munzee App map all of our Munzees are pink;

6) You can follow the built-in compass to get nearer to the Munzee. 7) When youre close, use your treasure hunting skills to find the Munzee! Most are stickers that look like this (see right) but three are virtual Munzees.

8) Once youve found the Munzee, use the capture button on the home or map screen to scan the QR code or capture a virtual munzee

9) Quiz time! Answer a pop-up question. Be sure to look around the surrounding area for inspiration the less guesses the more points you get!
