Check out this animated map of the Silk Road and perhaps gain some insight as to what will happen to you along the way. Are you prepared? Hope so. Good Luck!
Follow our little traveler along the Silk Road route in this short animation. You will see that he will have to face and conquer many obstacles along the way, such as snakes, mountains and deserts, among many other things. If you are nervous about the Silk Road adventure, you should be. If you are not nervous about the Silk Road adventure, you should be. This is not just any ordinary trip. This is the most intense definition of the word "difficult." I hope you bring your A game on Thursday because you will need it, that and some luck. Here's a thought, if you hand me a piece of paper with all the things the little guy passes along the way in the animated map, you will receive ten free points when the game begins on Thursday. It's hard to earn points so take advantage of this golden opportunity!!! Are you good at hunting for clues and secrets? Well, if you are reading this, you at least have found one secret. Just think, this is one of many, many secrets and words of wisdom sprinkled throughout this website. You better put your detective hat on and grab a magnifying glass because you need to discover the truth!
