There are legends from a long time ago, and there are also new ones, but no less mysterious and unique. It is said that once there was a house where famous Molfar (magician) lived. According to local beliefs, there are good and evil magicians. This Molfar was unique – he was both good and bad at the same time. He had an interesting hobby – to joke around and organize different pranks and amusing riddles. For a long time, no one could build a house there because the spirit of old Molfar was constantly present and “abused” people: he could hide some building tool, or close person in a room without letting him go … Old people say that there is an old legend. Once Molfar said: if there is a man or few people who agree to solve all his mysteries riddles and endure all “bullying” then this person will receive a huge gift from him, therefore the magician would be able to rest peacefully and no longer joke around with poor people.

He will give special rolled scroll with the legend and first task which must be completed. The goal of the game is to accomplish all the tasks prepared by the lions, solve all the riddles and to finish first. Each group will be accompanied by the agent (an animator who monitors the correctness of completion of tasks and helps in difficult situations).
All tasks are divided into three categories: logical task – completion of which is mandatory to finish the route, comic activities – a task from an agent, as a punishment for wrong actions or as a hint, and teambuilding task – provokes some team interactions. Each team has a separate route but the distance and difficulty of tasks are the same. During the route, there will be some “pleasant” surprises – “theatrical” characters. The group should find the person and complete given task. Only after successful completion, they will be able to get next task and continue the route.

Many treasure hunters were digging the area and even overturned poor lions, but it was useless … This led to some inconvenience for citizens. There was a rumor that it was just a beautiful legend that had no real basis and then over some time “gold fever” abated. Lviv city council even issued a special law which obliged to preserve the peace of Lviv lions.
But everyone is still searching for places where there are lions left or their possible location in the past. Some officials, under the guise of repairing the streets, dug them while personally watching the workers, in order them not to find some pieces of the map accidentally and take it to themselves. But all the searches were not successful.
