Re: Puzzles Anyone?

My brand new shiny puzzle Know thy Elements was solved in three hours. There go all two days of work I put into it. :P Oh, I totally disagree. I think that what it says is that you designed an elegant puzzle with clever hints to the ...

Re: Puzzles Anyone?

... different spots and taking partial coordinates from each spot to get the location of the final. I struggled with the decision to list it as a Puzzle cache or a Multi cache and ultimately (after conferring with a few cachers I respect in the area) concluded that while the cache has attributes ...

Re: Puzzles Anyone?

It's interesting, because I myself love puzzles and am often disappointed by puzzle caches that are basically multis with virtual stages. That to me is more like simple task completion than puzzle solving (plugging numbers into an equation isn't ...

Conflicts with Hidden Stages

... In brief, a short while ago a (relatively) new cacher listed a cache in an area that conflicted with a hidden stage for one of New York's many puzzle and/or multi caches. By my count there are around 50 hidden physical stages on the island of Manhattan alone, so it's not unusual to bump up ...

Re: Aug 7-9 Midwest Geobash

... gum or duct tape would have done as well) and the cache container then floated to the top. GENIUS! That is brilliant! And you say you don't like puzzle caches John... If the spirit of that cache isn't straight out of an Infocom game I don't know what is. Wow. Great.

Re: Whatever happened to....

... cache in place). And the very next day after it was archived I was able to go out and hunt "Some Like It Hot!", a neat little historical puzzle cache by a new cacher in the same area - a cache that to that point had been blocked by a ghost and a cache owner that quit the game a year before. ...

Re: Underground Cache Question

I think this is a relatively new phenomenon. I had a cache rejected recently for exactly this reason. The puzzle resolved to a description of where to go and what to do rather than coords and I was told no, that it had to have a GPS element in the puzzle. I think they are trying ...

Re: hunter gtech - RETRACTED

... that's the one I logged before it was retracted. It had a proximity issue (and still does, which I can say with confidence because I own a puzzle it unfortunately conflicts with). There was another cache in midtown that got retracted where everything disappeared, including the profile of ...

Re: Mystery box...

... waiting to hear more detail from Viermaster, but my theory at this point is that it may have been placed by someone who was unaware of the nearby puzzle final, and had their cache rejected for proximity. Maybe they didn't get around to collecting their cache yet, or didn't bother... Wondering ...

Re: The Other Game......

... guess I did, having grabbed HD/AB's Central Park hybrid a while back, but I didn't fully grok the LB nature of it at the time. I have a clue for a puzzle cache that shares space with a LB. The other owner and I actually tussled back and forth for a week or two, me not realizing that her item was ...
