Whack-A-Lakey! Remember those games you played in arcades? This game is based on Whack-A-Mole. There are three things you can whack in Whack-A-Lackey: muggles, forum moderators, and Groundspeak lackeys. Run to an area and whack the lackey before s/he disappears! Post your high score and its confirmation code to the cartridge page and compete! Proudly demonstrated at GW6! Needed to complete the Wherigo Geocache GC1CE5Z.

Absolvováno a odloveno spolu s JaJaDr. Díky za snadné wigo. Trochu překvapila větší vzdálenost finálky. Nápověda je přesná. Pouze je potřeba v závěru cesty k finálce zvolit správný směr :-)

Played the game and got a score of 728 but wherigo doesn't like the unlock code so unable to go any further with this which was disappointing

Enjoyed playing this game, but I think I need to try it again, when it's not so hot outside! I was able to get a score of 491... enough to unlock it, but not enough for the cache coordinates. Thanks to the CO for helping me learn to download the Wherigos to my phone. 😀 These are fun to do!
