About This Cartridge

Wherigo is a toolset for creating and playing location based adventures that combine virtual elements with the real world using a GPS device.

This 15 minute adventure style tutorial cartridge will teach you the basics of using the Wherigo player interface. Take your GPS device outside to begin the experience.

Starting Location

You'll need to be able to walk at least 50 meters away from your starting location in order to play. Try to find an open area where you can view most of the sky.

That was fun! It took a bit of fiddling about to get the GPS bit to work, but it was entertaining once it kicked in... nice!

This was the first time penzee and I attempted a wherigo. We weren't exactly clear on how to proceed, but with trial and error we were able to complete it. Thanks for the new experience.

Played this tutorial together with luci.of.oz. We bumbled our way through and had fun learning. Thanks!

A little bit of a learning curve at first, but worked through it. I can't wait to start on a couple of caches I have downloaded.
