Arr! Ye be seeking treasure?
Treasure Maps are pieces of maps (broken into 9 pieces) which when collected and put together give out various prizes. There are 7 maps in total, but this article only focuses on 5: the Original, Spooky, Underwater, Space and Forgotten Shore Maps. The articles on the Laboratory Map and the PetPet Map can be found elsewhere on TDN.
Treasure Maps are items, packaged in separate pieces. They can be bought and sold in user shops, in trades and in auctions. All Maps of the same set are of the same name, so when searching on the Shop Wizard, be sure to check which Map you are buying. Please also keep in mind that Map Pieces can be stolen by Random Events, so watch out!
Maps are redeemed at the Treasure Maps page, accessible through the Luck & Chance section of the Games Room. If you have a Map piece in your Inventory, it will show up in the appropriate section. Once redeemed, the map disappear and you cannot use it again or resell it.
Cost: approx. 400k (10 - 50k per piece)

The prizes and prices are just approximations, and are correct at the time of the writing of this guide. Prices can fluctuate greatly. Generally, Treasure Maps are not worth it, but if you've got some spare cash on hand, they're always fun to buy and redeem. Don't base your entire money-making scheme on Maps, but occasionally take a risk - life's always more fun that way.
