Join the football War of the Titans, study the legends of the stars, and win big with Discobolus’ end-of-year sticker game: an island-wide celebration of earth-shaking proportions.
END OF YEAR STICKER GAME:
DISCOBOLUS AND THE GOLDEN DISC
Many moons ago, the dusk of each year heralded the annual disc-throwing Olympiad at Landos Giravaros: a gathering of the finest sportsmen and sportswomen from the Earth and the Heavens.
During one such contest, the theft of Discobolus’ Golden Disc leaves Zeus in a thundering rage. Who would dare to steal the universe’s only Golden Disc – bestowed to the mighty Discobolus by Zeus himself?
An island-wide hunt ensues to discover whose team could possibly harbour such a dastardly thief: Aphrodite’s beautiful and nimble maidens; Apollo’s warm-hearted artists and musicians; Poseidon’s savvy seamen; the fun-loving, wine-drinking friends of Dionysus; Athena’s wise and learned administrators; or the hardworking heroes of Hades’ unseen world?
Help Artemis investigate by piecing together all those present at the annual disc-throwing Olympiad. New team members will be released daily. Trade your spare stickers for any missing ones with friends, neighbours and fellow Landos residents … then present your completed sticker book to the Landos Bureau of Investigation to redeem attractive rewards – and a chance to win the Grand Prize on 31 December 2016: a Family Resort Stay in a sister Four Seasons property. Good luck!
We’re delighted to announce the return of Astronomer Jatin Shivlal Rathod, renowned scholar of the stars, from the Nehru Planetarium in Mumbai, India. Join him on a cosmic stargazing experience to learn the ancient legends of the stars in the vast Maldivian skies with our fabulous NexStar telescope.
