About This Cartridge

Wherigo is a toolset for creating and playing location based adventures that combine virtual elements with the real world using a GPS device.

This 15 minute adventure style tutorial cartridge will teach you the basics of using the Wherigo player interface. Take your GPS device outside to begin the experience.

Starting Location

You'll need to be able to walk at least 50 meters away from your starting location in order to play. Try to find an open area where you can view most of the sky.

I started to try to play this 6 hours ago on my iPad. Abandoned that when I couldn't figure out how to give the energy cartridge to cap'n Jon. Just now I finally got it to work on my iPhone 12. Wouldn't load tutorial onto my phone directly so I downloaded it to my macbook, sent it up to iCloud and retrieved it from there onto my iPhone. I doubt if I could repeat all the steps again. All of this followed a fairly successful seat of the pants attempt to go through a real Whereigo cache, but even that had issues because someone had moved one of the objects to be looked at. This is a potentially fun way to enrich the geocaching experience but it needs some ironing out.
