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 it in the baseball field across the street. My grid wasn't well centered so one of the squares was outside the fence, but it worked anyway.
Played for Massachusets while planning a trip to this month's Mega Event, I might try to have the owner add Quebec to his map!
Too bad I don't know how to retrieve the code from my phone, I should have dusted off my 450.
Thanks for the fun game!

Wow, the last person in the feed was BIG MAD haha. I think that's the first time I've seen someone claim you can't geocache (or related activities) on a sunny day. Might be time for a new phone, boss.

I thought this one was a lot of fun, even though my grid wasn't totally well thought out and I had to walk over to an apartment complex...but it worked!

I was also thrilled that the numbers I first attempted to use after finding the 2 set ones all added up to 15....then when I walked around my grid I got it! I DID exit out of the game at one point and had to start over, but pretty easy sailing otherwise.

I can't get the completion code since I don't have a Garmin that marks it as complete and the manual code wasn't given. But I look forward to finding the cache in Coos Bay later this month!

This game is incoherent. And even if it made any sense, it's virtually impossible to use on a sunny day. Phone screens just aren't visible in sunlight. Calling it a play anywhere WIG is a lie If it was a play anywhere WIG, I'd be able to play it inside my house. The cache in Ohio associated with this cartridge will be on my glorious Ignore List very shortly.

Played this cartridge to get coordinates for the CO hide, in advance of an upcoming trip in that direction. Cartridge worked beautifully in the Android WhereYouGo app. Enjoyed solving the puzzle and dropping the numbers in their expected location. Hope to sign the log next week!

Went to the school parking lot so I would have enough open space. Wherigo went well and I had it solved fairly quickly. I’ll have to look for the cache the next time I am in Portland. Thanks.
