This was our first Wherigo experience. Though we've been to Placerville several times, it was nice to stop and see some of the local history. Even got us curious enough to look up a few things for more info. Thanks for the game!

Loved my first Wherigo set in my town of Placerville. I think you did a nice job showing off Historic Main Street and kept the walk to some interesting structures. I hope you will create another of these, for Gold Bug Park, or Coloma...Thanks for the fun!
