    Rules :

    Player can choose their favourite emotion type at the beginning of the match and will not be able to change until the game ends or start a new game . There will be a number of places where treasures are hidden on the map. So the players must collect treasure as a team and win the match. The player that died will respawn in the random respawn spot in the map ( different from the first time they spawn or respawn) . When players are carrying the treasure , they will not be able to do anything rather than just moving unless they drop the treasure on the floor.

    The players in a team are able to choose to leave all the treasures they have collected by himself or wait for their friends to come and escape together. If the player choose to run away with all the treasures they have collected by himself , he will get all the big winning prizes for himself and the rest of his team will be considered losing the game. But, if they run away as a team then the winning prize will be shared between them or the winners.
