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.

739? 1 Well, that was interesting. Thank you for my first WhereIGo cartridge. A few technical problems to start with but I think I've go the hang of it. I really did want to launch my spaceship at the end...

This was a cool little adventure. My hands were freezing holding my phone so much. But I really did enjoy it. I will be doing more in the future. Thanks!

Using apple Whereigo App on Iphone12 using software 14.8.1. Worked like a charm! Loved playing this ~ thank you for making a tutorial that i can play anywhere learning this new thing.

My first introduction into Wherigo ...
Had some dificulties in the beginning because my smartphone wasn't tracking the 50m I had to walk.
I am not convinced so far. Still prefer traditional geocaching.
