SWLS also hosts a weekly brainteaser/Lost-related scavenger hunt game. It runs during the summer hiatus, in between seasons, and the winning award has so far been Lost The Complete First Season. The Hunt season 3 will be a slightly newer format, including a story line of sorts. It is slated to begin at the end of September 2007.
Description from Season 2 The Hunt
THE HUNT is a scavenger game hosted on this site. Each week, you will have to use a series of
LOST-related clues to find information in the real world and/or on the internet. Not ALL
information given to you will necessarily be related to the current HUNT. There may be some
disinformation included, or, there may be information included that will need to be used in
future HUNTS. By putting the pieces of the puzzle together, you will find the solution to the
weekly hunt. The first 10 people to enter a correct answer on this page each week will receive
points (10pts for 1st, 9 pts for 2nd, and 8pts for 3rd, etc). Whoever has the most points at
the end of the game will receive a Season 2 LOST-DVD set in addition to the honor of HUNT

FireFox or similar browser.
You are welcome to play, but, you may have to help with the cost of shipping if you win. Also,
the DVD format will likely be NTSC. If you require a different format, I will try to
accomodate, but there are no guarantees.
Since SWLS Staff don't have any insight into THE HUNT, and no additional benefits above normal
users (in relation to THE HUNT), SWLS Staff will be allowed to participate in THE HUNT.
However, SWLS staff members will not be eligible for any prizes. In the event a staff member
wins, he or she will get the title of HUNT CHAMPION, but the DVD Set (or other prizes) will go
to the highest placing normal user.
PREPARE YOURSELF! To do well in THE HUNT, you'll need to know your LOST facts. The more you
know, the better. Use this site, and others as resources. You're best friend in THE HUNT will
be the GOOGLE BAR at the top of every page on this site.
THE HUNT begins on June 21st at 9PM EST and will continue throughout the summer hiatus on
Wednesday Nights at 9PM EST.
