Instructions


The way the game works is very simple, there are 8 areas marked on the map and each of them contains a test that you must solve, but they are disordered, which is why they all have the number 1.


To start the game you have to read the introduction below, which will tell you the first area to visit. In each area there is a test that you must solve, at the end of the explanation there is a blank space where you can write the answer. If it is correct, a text will appear that will indicate the next area. It is important to write the answer in lower case and without accent, as well as to do the tests in order.


To solve the tests and find the areas, you only need the information available in the app and information on the street: monuments, inscriptions, statues… The keys can be numbers or texts, they must be without accents or capital letters.


We hope you enjoy it.

Let’s start:

The treasure of Bentejui

   

Tejeda is a
municipality located in the shadow of the two most famous rocks of Gran Canaria
– Roque Nublo and Bentayga – which today stands out for being a quiet and
peaceful place to disconnect, enjoy a good route along the trails or
contemplate the beautiful views. But it hasn’t always been like that… or at
least, that’s what Beatrix told us when we paid her a visit at the tourist
office in Tejeda.

Talking to
her this morning, she told us that while she was reading the local newspaper,
to keep up to date with the news of the municipality and the island in general,
she has found a curious article that has caught her attention:

Remains of
the last battle between the aboriginal Canary Islanders and the Spanish
conquerors can be found in the Bentayga rock. It was in the year 1483, when
almost the whole island had already surrendered to the Spaniards, Bentejuí, the
son of the king or guanarteme of Telde, opposed to give in to the conquerors,
and led the last aboriginal resistance, sheltering in the shade of Bentayga
rock, and with no more weapons than sticks and stones. They held out for
several weeks, while the Spaniards were amazed, they could not understand how
they had held out so long fighting and how they recovered so quickly from the
battle. Finally, the Spaniards managed to storm the fortress and conquer the
last redoubt of Canary resistance.

Among the
objects found, apart from stones and throwing weapons used by the aborigines,
there was a rare diary written by a Spanish chronicler of the time called
«The treasure of Bentejui»: In it he spoke of the secret of the
warriors to recover so quickly from the battle, which Bentejuí kept as a
treasure.
