I tried the official Wherigo builder... Hmmm... Not very intuitive. I then stumbled on Urwigo. Ah, that's seems like a tool that can do it.

Currently experimenting with it. Lots of ideas. It looks like Wherigo can do much more than following an arrow to answer a question (as described in the PDF, and as experienced in the builder).

There was one in Barrie, ON that was definitely like a video game...  along the route, you met six cachers... each one had lost an item and found another, your goal was to return the items back to the correct cacher and the cache location would be revealed.

It was cool.

I believe that cache was designed around the "Just Do It!" Wherigo by swimmrguy (GC1H4Z6) http://coord.info/GC1H4Z6, and it did play out very nicely as a field puzzle. Well designed and well built, it was robust enough not to crash and challenging enough to be more than a 'virtual' multi-cache.

Ironically I have yet to find "Just Do It!" even though I'm one of the cachers 'featured' in it. You'll find me at the pub apparently..... hmmmm, type-casting? Now that I'm PiGo enabled I hope to correct that oversight fairly soon.
