"The Plums Are Lost In The Past"
The Game Begins March 31st & Runs Through May 2nd.
Must Be 18 Years Or Older & A United States Resident.
Synopsis Of The Game: This Game Is A Family History Theme Based Waymarking/Geocaching Game. This Game Will Be Played In Both The Virtual World & In The Physical World.
I Will Post A Photo, The Longitude & Latitude, Along With A Narrative. Players Can Play Online Using Google Earth & There Own Personal Knowledge Of Geography. Players Can Also Play By Physically Locating The "Cache" At The Location Of Where The Photo Is Taken, For Another Point, Using For Example GPS.
I Am Going To Be Using Time Stamps, From The Emails & The Comment Section Of The Posts, On This Blog, To Determine Who answers First or EACH point, which will determine the winner in case of a tie in points scored. During The Game There Will Be One Significant "Cache" Left That Will Be Worth An Extra Point.
The Reason This Game Has A Beginning & Ending, Unlike Other Geocaching And Waymarking Games, Is Because We Will Be Awarding A Prize To The Winner - Whoever Collects The Most Points. The First Five Contestants, That Gather The Next Highest Amount Of Points, Get A Certificate For Playing The Game. Anyone Can Start Playing The Game From The Beginning To End. The Winner Is Determined By The Amount Of Points Collected.
I Will Be Using Roman Numerals For The Game's Post - On This Blog. For Example I, II, III, IV, V etc........
