I enjoyed the private tour of this part of San Francisco. Thanks for putting this one together!

what a wonderful way to see San Francisco! The cartridge ran great, we walked and walked and saw things that probably most natives don't see. Thanks

Yay! success on my second try. I did this one with Solo Traveler back in the Beta days of Wherigo, and to say we had some challenges with this one would be a bit of an understatement. Actually took a more logical route this time around and the Zones were sufficiently large enough (a complaint I had on the earlier version), that it was a cinch to finish (in terms of Playing), although the Nooks and Alleys Deathmarch characterization is still valid in my opinion ;) TFTWIG

Today I played this one as my first cartridge ever and was very pleased with the results. This cartridge took me to some alleys and view points I would never have found by myself. Different San Francisco. Amazing

While doing this one I learned again a bit more about Wherigo it self and I can tell you, you can do a lot of fun-stuff with this application. I'm really looking forward to more of these games.

Thanks a lot for building / writing this cartridge. I already tried myself a bit but you certainly need some 'code-affection'. . . . Some more challenges ahead.
