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.

Solved version 7 of this cartridge today. Hoping to find the cache later this month.

I was going to give this a 5-star rating after playing it with my Android cell phone because it was a fun concept, however there is no GWS file available to unlock the cartridge on this website, and no unlock code to type in manually.

So, I went through the entire cartridge one more time on our Oregon 450, knowing that it would provide the necessary file. However, it took me 35 minutes to input the measly 7 numbers. I didn't even have to solve the puzzle (which would have probably taken me 1 to 2 hours at the abysmal speed of the Oregon), but just walking 20m and selecting a digit that I already knew in advance was taking an average of 5 minutes each. Of course I saved the game every time I placed a number, without which it would have been impossible to complete the cartridge. It was freezing all the time, often to the extent that I could not even reboot the GPS manually and had to resort to pulling out the batteries to restart the device. To be honest I was expecting the Oregon experience to be significantly less enjoyable than the Android, but I think to date this was the worst responsiveness we have experienced on that GPS.

I want to leave this review on a good note though: the puzzle concept was fun and if an unlock code was provided so all devices can unlock the cartridge on the Wherigo website, it would deserve 5 stars.

My 8000th cache find milestone! Our first time doing a Wherigo without the assistance of others. We solved it at home with three trips to a nearby park (it was too cold outside to figure it out, so we figured it at home and then returned to the park for the drop points). We enjoyed it.

Did not see an unlock code, but good coords for the final and made the quick find today. TFTC
