# [Game] Minecraft Geocaching

edited September 2011 in Showcase #1
Greetings, builders. Some of you may have heard of this, but chances are the majority of you have not. There's this thing in the real world called GeoCaching, where people go to a website, grab a GPS coordinate and a hint, and set out to find this hidden cache of goodies. I would like to start up the same thing in Minecraft, and since there's a lot more land in a Minecraft world (of which we have 3), there's a lot of places to hide stuff.

Rules
• You may not reveal the exact location to anyone else. Doing this spoils the fun!
• A Geocache MUST NOT, and WILL NOT require breaking blocks to get to.
• You must leave a "Calling Card" item in the cache when you find it.
• You may take ONE item out of the cache when you find it, but you must replace it with something of equal or greater value.
And that's it, pretty much. Just remember that this is not a cash-grab hunt, leave stuff there so we all know who was there!

New Geocache
As for recording a new Geocache, follow the template below and remember to leave a descriptive, but not revealing hint.
&#91;b&#93;Name:&#91;/b&#93; &lt;Unique identifier for that cache&gt;
&#91;b&#93;Location:&#91;/b&#93; &lt;Name of World&gt;
&#91;list&#93;
&#91;*&#93;&#91;b&#93;X:&#91;/b&#93;
&#91;*&#93;&#91;b&#93;Y:&#91;/b&#93;
&#91;*&#93;&#91;b&#93;Z:&#91;/b&#93;
&#91;/list&#93;
&#91;b&#93;Hint:&#91;/b&#93; &lt;A cryptic, but not indecipherable hint as to where the cache is located&gt;

Note: Location Y coordinate is optional. Location is somewhere within the vicinity of the cache, but not exact.

I'm sorry I haven't made one, but I would like to request my calling card be Fence posts.

Thanks,

requesting my calling card be a wooden bowl

Also, this is a great idea! I do geocaching in real life, and its a great experience.
Should we stick to the real geocaching rule of not letting other people see what you are doing? AKA be inconspicuous, ninja-like.

That kinda fits into the "Don't reveal locations to others" rule.

Haven't been on in a while, but I fully intend to hunt these things down when I can. I would like to request my calling card be leaves.

Hint:
"One thing may lead to another..."

(I'd wait for Steeveeo to add Bookworm before heading out for this one)

Clue: Find the castles and the snow between, here I am, hiding in a tree.

Note: There is a poem that forms the clue for the next geocache next to it.

Good luck!
