I think Cookie Monster ate someone's log on their F cache requirement. I checked and there is absolutely no log on the cache page. I feel so sorry for him. The bingo requirement is void without any proof he was there.

Yep, the requirement is now filled. **teehee** Don't worry, Gecko Cacher. You're not the only person that forgot to log the cache.

Oh yea. Nobody can accuse CB or myself of rigging the contest. Many of the people closest to us have the worst cards. I can't believe how bad some of the draws have been for some of my closest geo buddies.

Hey Scruffster,

Thanks for the heads up Lightbulb I really like this game format and when it all comes down to it, geocaching is all about having fun as it's just a game. In the end I don't care who wins because it's all about the adventure.

Since I'm awake.....again, thinking about Bingo, push the magic button to release more tasks! Nut

Geck

I wouldn't want anyone not to win over a technicality.

The magic button was pushed for the 27th a little while ago. We've been averaging approximately 10 draws a day. It's been a bit of a blitz. Game #2 will go a lot slower to give everyone a chance to find the caches. We'll have some different tasks and we will be tweaking the system a bit.

Congrats Gecko! This was so much fun - thanks guys!

I had two new squares this morning, plus one that I couldn't get yesterday, but even if I'd got them all, I still wouldn't have had a line! LOL!

We don't usually do much weekday caching with working very long days Confused but we managed to fit a few in around other errands and it was a great break in the day. Self employment doesn't always mean time to go caching, but we need breaks too!

For our health and sanity I request that you get the next one up pronto! Party Hat

Congratulations Gecko.

Gecko Cacher not only won the game he had the most squares filled. 8 in total. He was definitely one of the most enthusiastic of the group playing.

One player had a line appear shortly after the first draw. And get this. The tasks were two small caches, a regular, a micro and a free square. When I saw that come up I said to myself -- "nobody will be getting that sweet deal again!" And it's true. Requirements will never double up on the cache sizes or any other easy task again. That will be one of the changes.

We'll be setting up game #2 shortly.

Just to make things clear for the next game, I had ( move a TB 20 K or more ) Could that be a TB that I have had for a bit or do you have to go find one and move it?

Thanks BCGA! Yes the game was a lot of fun and kinda rekindled my caching drive. Now I need to get some sleep quick before the next game. Nut

Congrats Gecko Cacher!

I had a line of 4 for 2 days - completed the tasks and just had to wait (in vain) for that last green box!

This is such a great idea to get people out caching on wet & dreary days.

Looking at all the posts on this thread - am I the only cacher in BC who sleeps?

Bring on game 2!

Management decision time! GC1CD8G

Is this cache a 'traditional' or a 'Multi'? It has been sitting listed as 'traditional' forever and only the description has been edited to say it's a two-step.

For the case of BINGO, we'll simply go with the pic on the listing. Green box = traditional.

I'm also needing some guidance from the judges...

the TB move >20k question. Does it have to be a NEW TB or can it be one we have already or have previously discovered? I didnt see an answer to a previous poster.

Second question - does Tigger qualify as an animal? He is, afterall, based on one...

?

Thanks!

The action/geocache find should be on or after the date your bingo square turned green. So ultimately it should be a TB you pick up and move after.

I'm a bit torn about the animal reference. It does say animal. Yes, cartoons are often animals. So, for this game I will allow cartoon animals.

many people have no matches, but the first free one. It is random.
