Starting The Game:
In this game there is no geocaching involved. It is simply a matter of solving codes and clicking on the
correct spot on a map that relates to the discoveries of one of the twelve explorers in the game. You will
find the correct spot by deciphering a message to get map coordinates or other information to indicate a
specific spot on the map. If you can crack the code without the keyword then you will gain a time
advantage over other players. Keywords are provided after 1 to 3 hours depending on your position in the game.
The Games Objective:
In this game you will work with 12 famous world explorers and maps from the areas they explored.
You will solve a code to see where to click on the maps in order to continue on to the next
explorer. Warning one. The correct spot for one player may not be the correct spot for another player.
two. Clicking on the wrong spot will result in a time penalty of from one to 3 hours. Be very careful and
take your time to get things right.

The codes are mostly made up of pig pen symbols with some morse code symbols mixed in. Your center wheel is
set up to help you with both kinds of symbols. The first 2 puzzles use a simple substitution cipher.
ones use a standard Vigenere cipher with keywords (SAMPLE)
and the last few use an Autokey Vigeners cipher. (SAMPLE)
Guidelines and Rules:
The Map Grids:
Many of the maps use a grid system to identify a certain spot on the map. There will normally be morse code
symbols down the side and pig pen symbols across the top. Always align the red section of the inner wheel
with the letter A on the outer wheel. For example, suppose you decipher you message and it says
"You need to click a spot at U-C". The first letter denotes the north south coordinate or latitude along
the side. The second letter is the east west coordinate or longitude across the top of the map. So U-C would
indicate the blue oval in the top left of the map. A-O denotes the purple oval in the lower right of the map.
S-E is the green triangle. U-O is the yellow square and A-C is the orange diamond.
This game is created for folks to have some fun, it's impossible for us to enforce hard-set rules and regulations.
The guidelines we have set up are pretty clear and we hope players will respect these rules and log within the
