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.
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)
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.

Worked like a champ for me. Very solid on my iphone. Was able to pull over the gws file and unlock for TX. Well done!

Great area you've got here.
This WIG ran flawlessly on my Oregon 550.

I completed the Texas version yesterday (my first Wherigo FTF) but unfortunately my Android device saves as a .OWS, not a .GWS and it appears that whatever difference exists in format makes it unrecognizable by the Wherigo site so it won't unlock. One other strange thing, is that the first time through, I found coordinates that seem to place the cache in MA, even though that state is not listed. I ran through it again, and then received the correct coordinates for TX.

Well, I'm using an android device, so I can't upload a .gws file to unlock the wherigo, but this cartridge doesn't give me a completion code either. I'm new to these, so I'm not sure what the value of the unlock is anyway. Thanks for the fun puzzle wherigo/cache! P.S. I played it for Wisconsin this time.

Ran smoothly on my Motorola Droid 4 using the WhereYouGo app. Good little puzzle and no problems with the zones while running it in a parking lot. Only did the FL puzzle for now.
