Re: [gpsstash] Another reason I enjoy geocaching


Excellent Posting!

I am real curious how you would react to the idea of a totally new and
different GPS game that I am developing?

The Wonderts Game identifies those wonderful 'places to be' or 'things
to see' that scatter our globe. In the Wonderts game, just being there
or seeing it is the prize.

Unlike geocaching there is no cache, no prizes, no logs, minimal hunt,
and almost no social interaction with other players. Its just you, your
GPS, and the Wonderts.

In the Wonderts game the only interraction between players is through a
score or ranking put on the wondert itself. From zero to nine, starting
at five, players vote this ranking up or down according to their
personal enjoyment of the wondert. Lower ranked wonderts are eventually
deleted.

Do you think you would participate in the Wonderts Game?

Dave...

P.S. To learn more about Wonderts you would need to visit the archives
of the Yahoogroup GPSgames.
