How to Find the Treasure on Virtual Villagers

by Britt BarclayUpdated September 22, 2017

Virtual Villagers is a computer game based on problem solving and puzzles. Puzzle number 15, which is completed by finding the treasure chest, is one of the more difficult puzzles because there are no clues. In the case of puzzle 15, it is solved only by luck and experimentation unless you know where to look. If you don't want a detailed description on how complete this puzzle, read no further.

Unlock the third and final level of both Construction and Science. Have villagers research in the science lab. After you gain enough technology points, click on "Tech" on the left side navigation panel, then clicking "Buy" in the Construction and Science categories.

Draw a vertical line down from your food bin and a horizontal line to the west of the temple.

Drag and drop a master builder on the area where the lines intersect. Repeat this process as many times as it takes until the master builder begins building and scaffolding appears.

Drag and drop more villagers no matter their skill level on the scaffolding to help uncover the treasure once it has been discovered.

Let the villagers work on the site until it is complete, adding more workers to expedite the process.


Builders only become masters at their skill after gaining experience.


The game does not display completion percentage for the treasure chest project, so keep villagers working on it until you get a notification you have completed the puzzle.
