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.

Played on Samsung Galaxy 5. Worked well with "where-you-go" Don't know where the save file is located on the phone so can't upload it to complete the cartridge. Did not receive a completion code. Did get the coordinates to the physical cache so will attempt to find on my next trip to GZ.

State number 3 now completed see list below for all that care what states I have done. This one has a little story to go along with it. While in Hawaii I was going to find this cache. When I started the cartridge I had made a mistake somehow and pick Florida instead of Hawaii. When I had completed the cartridge it was to my surprise that the cache was hundreds of miles away. Had to run cartridge again to get the correct coordinates for Hawaii. Having the coordinates for Florida, I had to find the cache while down here also.

I tried this last weekend on my Garmin 450, but it was cold and I didn't realize it was a puzzle too. Logged a failure then, so tried again tonight in a neighborhood park and learned that there are different types of WIGs. Solved the puzzle and played the grid for a successful final coordinates in Loveland, CO. Will have to check out some of the other states when I can.

Thanks for a fun one!
