Missile Command - 5/30/14

Today's New Jersey puzzle is another one that landed in my inbox recently.  It wasn't the game I was best at, but I do remember spending some time playing:

I got my smiley! - 5/29/14

I recently had the opportunity to take a fun day-trip with friends over to western New York and do the "Come Get Your Smiley" series I have featured here before.  I thought I'd celebrate by featuring another one of the puzzles that I enjoyed:

Come Get Your Smiley #31

Here's my smiley:

Can Puzzles Make You Sick? -5/28/14

I had to check out today's nicely presented California puzzle when I saw its title.  I never thought I'd say it, but since I've suffered from many of the symptoms described I suppose I have to agree that upon occasion:

These puzzles make me sick!

Tomorrow we'll be in western New York.

Soldier's Code - 5/26/14

Dream Numbers - 5/24/14

When my friend recently suggested Chinese food for lunch, I was hoping I'd be able to get a puzzle out of the occasion as well.  Sure enough, my fortune cookie read, "Your dreams are never silly; depend on them to guide you."  In the case of today's puzzle from the United Arab Emirates, your guide to the cache coordinates is:

Dream Numbers

Tomorrow we'll spend another day in the UAE.

Thumbs Up! - 5/23/14

I hope you'll give today's puzzle from Finland a:

Thumbs up!

Tomorrow we'll be in the United Arab Emirates.

P.S.  Did anyone else notice that the "unknown" category represented by our little blue question mark has been changed to "mystery cache" on our profile pages?  (We can still search for "unknown" so it doesn't seem to have been a complete changeover.) Now if they'd only come up with a truly separate category so that night caches and challenges would be separate types ...

"The Donald" Is Not Invited - 5/22/14

Since I've been featuring a lot of game-related puzzles I thought I'd continue the trend today in honor of my husband's favorite game.  I enjoy it myself ... but he's a master.  The puzzle is from California, and:

Blasts from the Past - 5/21/14

Today we have a pair of California video-game based puzzles that are a real blast from the past.  If you are "of a certain age" (I always wondered where that phrase came from) you will have some fun with these:

Reverse Boggle - 5/20/14

Another game my kids have gotten me playing recently is "Scramble with Friends," which is loosely based on the old (noisy) game of "Boggle."  A few months ago I featured a puzzle which had you construct the "Boggle" grid given a few of the blocks in the correct position, and knowing some words that could be formed.  You'll have to start from scratch to solve today's California game of:

Reverse Boggle

Tomorrow we'll be in California another day.

2048? - 5/19/14

Today's puzzle takes us to Germany.  My kids have recently been spending a lot of time playing a new game, and I thought I'd share a puzzle based on it today.  You might want to read up a little on the rules of the original version before trying your hand at this geocaching version of:

Cache of Champions - 5/18/14

Today's puzzle is located in Minnesota.  We had Chinese take-out again recently, so that means a fresh supply of fortune cookies.  Today's read "Go for the gold today!  You'll be the champion of whatever."  With that kind of fortune I figured I should be up for a:

Championship Caliber Cache

Tomorrow we'll be in Germany.

And she's buying the ... 5/17/14

When I saw today's Delaware puzzle, I knew I'd have to feature it.  Lately it seems my daughter has been playing her Pandora radio every waking minute. She doesn't play it at an ear-splitting level, but loud enough that we can easily hear what songs are playing.  It seems to recycle the same songs over and over, and I've been wondering how many days in a row we'll have to listen to:

Stairway to Heaven

Tomorrow we'll be in Minnesota.

Puzzle Fun - 5/16/14

Today's Delaware puzzle offers a choice of puzzle paths, and the checker for each of them will give you the cache coordinates.  You only need to solve one of them to find out where to go to sign the log, but if you like you can have triple the:

(Note, when the CO says the last one is Hard, he's not joking ... I'm still working on it and have already gotten a couple of nudges from him so far).

Tomorrow we'll hang around in Delaware another day.
