Replace “Pirate’s Treasure” with “Pirate’s Hoard” throughout the ruleset. The location of the Pirate’s Treasure becomes the location of the Pirate’s Hoard.

Add a subrule to “Islands” called “Seeking the Hoard”:-

A Hunter may Seek the Hoard at their current location by posting a blog entry to this effect, naming one or more types of Landmarks that they intend to search, and losing 1 Piece for each Landmark so named. (A Hunter may not name more Landmarks in this way than they have Pieces.)

The Pirate should respond to that post with a comment saying whether or not any of the Landmarks named by it are (on the Island in question) the location of the Pirate’s Hoard: if one of them is, then the Hunter who made the post achieves victory.

Trying a different treasure-finding mechanic. Make as many digs as you like, you have to be actually on the Island, and there’s a cost of 1 Piece per dig.

Also cagily renaming the Pirate’s Treasure to “Hoard” since we’re also using “Treasure” to mean something else.

for Essentially the same, but without dice values. (for the record, i would have changed the values and removed the line about placing the treasure if someone had left a Note) Why rename Treasure to Hoard? Seems like it would create confusion.
