By way of payment you have brought provisions to celebrate the founding of the town, the new capital of Mercia!

Oddites reported:
There is a key task that you must perform. Be careful to put the item exactly in the right place or the Queen will stay annoyed at you! If you really getb stuck and can't think, go talk to the Princess, after 5 times she'll take pity on you!
Blank screens: on android some people get a big blank box with 'ok' on it at times. I can't work out why. Just click OK.
Many thank to the BBC History team for providing some of the imagery used in this game.  

Starting Location

The Ancient High House in Stafford, England.

Played today. Worked on iPhones 4, 5c and 6. Bit of confusions between zones 2 and 3, but all worked out well in the end.

First planned cache of the day with Lime Candy. We had four devices running the app today, Jenny's Oregon crashed at stage two but the other three (iPhone 4, iPhone 5 & iPad) all performed well and got us to the cache. Now to visit the church again for the Christmas tree festival.

2nd attempt at this, the last time we struggled and it was freezing so the fingers were numb !! Had a bit of trouble around one location but that was likely inexperience. in the end we were given the location and on arrival the queen gave us the co-ords and the cache was in our hands. Thanks for the effort
