Prove that you can tell real art from fakes. Play in San Antonio, or Play Anywhere! For local play, don't forget to claim cache GC1B5VM.

About This Cartridge

A short test of your knowledge of some famous works of art, and a cache to find in San Antonio, Texas. You'll search for famous works of art in Mahnke Park, and if you find them all, you'll be given the directions to a cache. Of course, if you aren't in San Antonio, you can still play! Just start it and select Play Anywhere mode! No cache for you, unfortunately, but you're more than welcome to have the virtual experience!

We've tested this as much as possible on both the PPC and Colorado platforms, and the initial bugs are worked out. If you run into trouble, please let us know so we can try to iron out any remaining issues! 

Starting Location

For San Antonio play, park along the road next to the park (but not on New Braunfels). For Play Anywhere play, you'll want a wide open space about 500 feet across.

I've played both the "fun" version and the "real" version tied to the geocache, and they both played flawlessly on a Samsung Galaxy S3 with the WhereYouGo App. Not difficult if you know your art (or have internet access to check), but be prepared for the walk, especially on summer days. Zone navigation works fine, but navigating to precise locations (i.e. the cache location) using the WhereYouGo application always gives me problems.

Played on the Nuvi 500 with a few problems, but was able to finish. Thanks for the Wherigo.

This was are first Wherigo cache for us. We went with good friends tetristar. It helped that we had a coupl of iphones and we only had to go to each station once. During the course we ran into a young man fro up north. No not Oklahoma, but Winnipeg, Canada. and he finished the course with us. At the final the log was soaked so we replaced it and I placed a Geocoin here to be taken to Canada. Thanks for something new.
