Geocache of the Week

Geocache Name:

GeoSnake (GC4YDPC)

Difficulty/Terrain Rating:

2.5/2

Why this is the Geocache of the Week:

This week we’re continuing our theme of games in geocaches with this amazing creation that resides in Hong Kong. While last week required you to play a game before you left home, this multi-cache integrates the game right into the middle of the find. In order to get the coordinates for the final stage, geocachers have to play a few rounds of the classic Snake game. The time, effort and technical ability that went into creating this geocache is a perfect example of what geocaches can be when a geocache maker puts their mind to it.

# of Finds:

11 (hidden in February 2014)

# of Favorite Points:

9

What the geocache owner, CX15, has to say:

“My favourite part of Geocaching is to read the logs of people finding my contraptions…I have been trying to push the limits of cache making right from the start. I guess I was inspired by some really cool caches in Hong Kong and wanted to see how far I can go with some ideas (and believe me, I have so many more ideas – the only limit is time…)”

What geocachers are saying:

“Wish I could unload all my favorite points on a brilliant cache like this! This is truly a world-class grade cache! Thanks for making this one-of-a-kind cache! You really are the maker master. Therefore decided to find this cache on the Maker Madness event day in order to pay my respect to owner!”– samshlau

“Yay!!! This cache is def going to my fav list!!! Such an interesting journey leading to the final cache. Much impressed by the craftsmenship n system integration ability. The theme was carried out thru-out the whole hunt. We spent much time with the game but it’s all worth it for the final gz.” – monki322

“We screamed loud as we reached final GZ. It’s terrible but terrific!! Such an amazing cache with careful planning and meticulous preparation! Million thanks to cache owner for giving me such pleasure!…It’s definitely my favourite cache so far!!!” – chungtao

    If not a Geocache of the Week, I would like to see an Honorable Mention to the “Maze Puzzle” featured by Geocache Spoilers and featured on one of his YouTube videos before he died.

    Muzza, down here in Melbourne Australia, has constructed various games. Our favourites have been Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (GC2HWVE) and Bed Bugs (GCQJFF) which is a whack-a-mole arrangement. Very cool.
