Feb. 2012 – Jump Gate geocache – A Finders/Keepers Thing [DONE]

Jump Gate geocache Box - Feb. 2012Updated: 8-Feb-2012 … Clue #2 added.

Updated again on 8-Feb-2012 … IT HAS BEEN FOUND!

As a promotion in the run up to the Con of the North this year — where I will have a vendor space in the main hall — I thought I would find a unique way to give away a copy of Jump Gate.

I have “misplaced” this copy of the game somewhere in Hennepin County, Minnesota.  It is outdoors, in a place with public access — not a private business or school or anything where you would be in trouble for being.  And you won’t have to put yourself in any danger (legal or physical) to find it.

Whoever finds it gets to keep it.  And I’ve added a note in the box with a request to have that person e-mail me to let me know they found it in exchange for receiving an additional gift.

I will give a new clue each day-or-so until it is found.

Well, it was found rather quickly … after just 2 clues!  Found by Ben Holle of Maple Grove.  He does a nice job explaining how he went about finding it on the BGG Forum Post about this promotion: http://boardgamegeek.com/article/8436202.

And, here were the clues …

  • 7-Feb-2012 … Clue #1: If A=1 and Z=26, then start at “DID”.  You won’t need to travel as far as the Dakotas, but you’re headed in the right direction.  When you are nearby the goal, you will see a Radisson.
  • 8-Feb-2012 … Clue #2: “It is outdoors, in a place with PUBLIC ACCESS” … I could give you 10,000 examples, but the elves would only give you one.  Radisson in clue #1 is not a hotel.
