You can detect on the XBox now :lol: There’s a game called Treasure Hunters if you fancy giving it a whirl. Not tried it myself but heard it’s a laugh :D

😁don't play games but I imagine to get a comparable experience you could
Stick your hands in the fridge..
Jump in the shower fully clothed
Knee slide in the garden
These would all emulate the real experience😁

Didn’t Russel do a funny virtual detecting demo on the detectorists?
I find it difficult to believe any real ‘tectorist would indulge.

I just had a look at a couple of video reviews of it and got very bored! There is just no substitute for being out in the elements digging up some bits of scrap! :D :thumbsup:

It lists options as:

11 beautiful, handcrafted locations = muddy field, tough stubble, pasture with grass too long .....
8 different metal detector types to upgrade = I wonder if they have, well, you know what just for OG :lol:
100+ artifacts to find = does that include Red Bull cans, buttons, toasted George's?
10+ legendary artifacts = oooh, more buttons :D
Artifacts can be found in various conditions = aka, a bit of this and a piece of that.
Identification and collection of artifacts = do they have a link to The Hub?
Artifacts can be sold to bolster funds for better gear and travel expenses to remote locations = well this really is the Christmas bit as there is one person this will really P off :lol:

The only difference is I can now stand in the middle of my front room thinking "what the hell am I doing here!" and have a drink and turkey sandwich at the same time :lol:
