Storyline

You call yourself a treasure hunter, though the less “sophisticated” call you a thief. A letter covered in antique stamps directs you to Vancouver to find the “Oppenheimer Stash,” a stockpile of Gold Rush spoils.
 
Something more than a run-of-the-mill treasure hunt is clearly afoot once you discover a strange picture frame that allows you to see into the past, and even reach in and snatch things from it! Using it could have grave consequences…but you can deal with that once you get rich!
