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

 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.
