This cartridge will teach you how to use the Wherigo Player and give you an idea of what you can do with the platform.

About This Cartridge

Wherigo is a toolset for creating and playing location based adventures that combine virtual elements with the real world using a GPS device.

This 15 minute adventure style tutorial cartridge will teach you the basics of using the Wherigo player interface. Take your GPS device outside to begin the experience.

Starting Location

You'll need to be able to walk at least 50 meters away from your starting location in order to play. Try to find an open area where you can view most of the sky.

This is my first completed Wherigo! Thanks! I’ve been slightly intimidated and hadn’t concentrated on figuring out how to play. However, I was inspired by this month’s Wheel of Challenges to try different types of caches - even though Wherigo is not on the list. It helped that I could test things from home. Thanks for setting up the cartridge for all us beginners trying to learn on our own.

Great way to introduce this type of game.

Can’t help but think the whole website needs a bit of an overhaul. It conflicts with itself - says there are no iOS apps when I just completed this on my phone!

Really well done tutorial to get used to whereigo.
We’ve tried this two days before starting our very first real whereigo and it went smooth 💪

Thank you!
