This wherigo is a simple puzzle that can be easily solved in the field but a pencil and paper may be helpful. The playing field is divided into 9 squares arranged in a 3 X 3 grid. There are 9 number items in the game numbered 1 through 9. As you start 2 of the numbers are already placed into the grid. The other 7 numbers are in your inventory. Your job is to place the correct number into the correct box in the grid. Instructions are in the cartridge under TASKS in the main screen.

About This Cartridge

This cartridge may be played for geocaches in several states. As the cartridge starts you choose from a list of states with wherigo geocaches included in the cartridge. Upon completion of the puzzle you will be given the GC number and coordinates for the associated geocache in that state and none other. For another state you may restart and play the cartridge again.

Not all states are included in the cartridge. If you would like to add your state to the cartridge visit this webpage. (visit link)

A map and list of states currently in the cartridge may be found here. (visit link)


Starting Location

This is a play anywhere cartridge. It requires an open space of about 200 foot square. Parking lots, parks, fields all work well. Start the cartridge when you are standing in the center and the grid will be created around you.

I am hopefully heading to Milwaukee this weekend and hope to find the Wisconsin version of this Wherigo. Played it this afternoon at home in Manitoba, and after first figuring out the game, and getting it wrong four times, and suffering one crash, my Oregon 450 finally let me complete the task. Now I just have to find the cache. Thanks for the work making this Rusty o Junk!

We heading over the Eel lake for the Yak event and saw this cart nearby. The old Colorado worked just fine and used our farm for the playfield. Got the coords and will be over there to find the cache this weekend.
Great cart and had fun doing it. Thanks for your hard work to get it up for everyone. When we find the cache we'll award a favorite point for sure.

For some reason, our Oregon GPSr did not do well with this wherigo. It is such a nice idea, and we enjoyed it except for the fact that we had to keep turning off the Oregon and wait a long time for it to register anything. I don't feel like I can really rate it because of all the trouble we had with the GPSr. We appreciate all the work that goes into these though and want to thank you for the Wherigo.

This is a very nice puzzle. It took us a few minutes to understand how it worked and we enjoyed solving it. We used a large grassy field in a public park and must have looked nuts to anyone observing our behavior. Thanks for putting this together.
