ABC FAMILY CHALLENGES FANS TO BRING THEIR “A” GAME AS THEY Gear Up for
A new Season of The Hit Original Series “Pretty Little Liars”
Mysterious Digital Riddle Unravels Across the Web
In true “A” style, ABC Family is sending fans on a scavenger hunt across the Internet to solve a mysterious riddle from the diabolical lead antagonist in the hit series “Pretty Little Liars,” which premieres for its third season Tuesday, June 5th (8:00 – 9:00 PM ET/PT). The new “Pretty Little Puzzle Hunt” game is launching today at www.abcfamily.com/prettylittlepuzzlehunt with a sinister message from “A”: “I love games. Don’t you? But if you want a sneak peek of what the Liars are up to, you are going to have to play MY game...”
In the game, fans must find hidden rebus pieces scattered across popular websites and use them to unlock a secret password on ABCFamily.com/prettylittlepuzzlehunt. There will be new clues on the ABC Family web site every weekday beginning today, May 23, through May 31, 2012 (not including Memorial Day) that lead users to rebus pieces on participating web sites. At the end of the hunt (June 1), the pieces have to be arranged in the correct order to reveal “A’s” message and unlock the secret password to the exclusive clip. Only 250,000 passwords will be accepted so fans will have to be up for the challenge and finish the riddle quickly.
In the upcoming season premiere of “Pretty Little Liars,” Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer are thrown back into turmoil after one shocking night in “It Happened ‘That Night’.” Fans can prepare for the return to Rosewood in an all-day marathon starting at 11:00 AM (ET/PT) and running up to the one-hour season premiere at 8:00 PM (ET/PT).
