    The map designers for the classic scenario must be a creative bunch or dabbled with mind altering substances, ;). Hints to other games like Mario, sharks in rivers, sea monsters, castles, skeletons of dinosaurs. Spent hours over the years exploring this map. Thanks for making my boring life a little less boring.

    Deep in the hills of Clark County Arkansas just south west of Little Rock near the town of Gurdon, there is a phenomenon that has been witnessed by hundreds, yet there is no explanation for what people have described as "spook lights" which is a common term for strange unexplained lights that have been witnessed by many. Strange lights are actually common around the world and some refer to them as "will-o-the-wisp" or "fairy lights" among others. They seem to mostly occur in wet areas or bogs after the sun has gone down.
