Remember, solve the mystery in the video and then comment below.

Important: Post your answer in the comments for a chance to win some serious loot. Of course, Nerve Rush has to win the swag too, so the more you share, the better swag we’ll get to give away. The highest number of comments on this post wins & ONLY the comments left here on the Nerve Rush site count towards that total.

Now a prepared adventurer always knows what’s at stake, so while we know there’s untold treasure in the adventure ahead, we have confirmation that if we total the most comments out of the other 10 sites hunting for the treasure, we’ll be picking at least two of the following prizes from the booty and give them away to our crew (that’s you) to help you prepare for your next adventure.
