The “Get A Clue” Geocaching Game!

 


THE GET-A-CLUE GAME IS OVER!

NOTE: The Game Started On March 8 and Ended on August 3, 2003


Mr. Boddy has been murdered.  His body was found at the base of the main stairway at Boddy Mansion .  Can you discover who did the deadly deed?

Was it Miss Scarlet in the ballroom with the candlestick?  Or was it Professor Plum in the study with the lead pipe?

Patterned after the famous Clue board game from Parker Brothers that you played as a child (or big kid), this version has a geocaching twist.

All of your favorite characters are here: Miss Scarlet, Col. Mustard, Mrs. White, Prof. Plum, Mrs. Peacock and Mr. Green.  They were all on the premises on the night of the murder and each is a suspect.

Like the board game, you will have to use your investigative skills and deductive powers to discover who committed the murder, what weapon they used and where the crime occurred.

This geocaching game by the Jose Gaspar Crew involves finding clues distributed in five separate geocache sites.  Each site contains information that will remove one suspect, one weapon and one room from your list of possibilities.  By process of elimination, (with some additional detective work on your part), you will be able to zero-in on the correct answer.  When you are ready, you can make your accusation online.

If you are correct, you will be given the coordinates to the sixth and final “Get A Clue” geocache site.

Yes Virginia, There Are Prizes

UPDATE - ALL GEOCACHING.COM PRIZES
HAVE BEEN WON AS OF JUNE 1, 2003. 
(See Scorecard)
 

In addition to the normal treasure chest, the final “Get A Clue” cache includes special prizes for the first 10 registered geocaching teams that can correctly complete the game before the August 3, 2003 deadline.  The prizes include the following official Geocache gear:

The first registered team that successfully identifies who committed the murder, including the proper weapon and location, gets their choice of one of the above items.  The second team gets their choice of one of the remaining items, etc.

Additionally, the first 20 geocaching teams to correctly solve the game will get an official, customized Jose Gaspar certificate (suitable for framing) that proclaims their master detective prowess.

What Caches Are Part Of The Get A Clue Game?

The five caches containing clues are:

Each of these five caches are standalone caches in their own right.  You don’t have to play the “Get A Clue” game to try to find them.  The "For Whom The Bell Tolls" cache has already been placed and the others will follow over a period of 2-3 months. 

The caches may be found in any order, but we suggest that you find the “For Whom The Bell Tolls” cache first to familiarize yourself with the props that are used in the remaining caches.

I Think I Know Who Did It!

Once your think that you know the answer to the three questions – Who did it?  Where? And with what weapon? - go to the Get A Clue Accusation page and enter your guess.  If you’re right, you’ll know right away and will get the coordinates and instructions to the final cache.  If you guess wrong…well, you’d better go get more clues and try again later.
