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.

Enjoyed the concept...a new type of WiG for us. We chose to play on a State Park parking lot in Delaware and then travel to Wilmington to collect the final. Nicely done ūüėÄ

Tried twice with the Garmin Oregon 450 and gave up.

Playing on a Garmin Oregon 400t is an exercise in futility. The program routinely hung up from 1 to 5 minutes, while I was standing in each square. In one instance, I waited 10 minutes before declaring the GPS frozen and pulling the batteries. After 1+ hour of trying all of the tricks mentioned by "cd.cuts" in their log dated 5/6/2018, plus a few tricks of my own, I was barely able to place 4 numbers. That includes the two numbers given by the program at startup. Then the delays became longer and the freezes more common. I'm not a quitter, but this issue had me beat.

If the cartridge had worked on my unit, then I am sure that I would've been happily done with it in 10-15 minutes and then given a 5‚ėÖ review. My experience was a 0‚ėÖ. I averaged them to a 3‚ėÖ. Hopefully the CO will find a way to solve this Oregon problem.

Completed this in Ohio as my first Wherigo cartridge but using the Android app, .ows files are generated. But logging here and on the Geocaching website and thanks for the nice little concept!
