Local Puzzler Hits The Big Time

Postby egroeg on Mon Jan 23, 2012 7:45 pm

There's a blog called Geocaching Puzzle of The Day (http://geocachingpuzzleoftheday.blogspot.com/) that I like to read, and the puzzle featured for last Sunday was "Welcome to Walton" by Mr. WVAngler. Kudos.

Nice. I liked that one. It was clever.

Thanks for catching that blog. That one and the Welcome to Gandeeville puzzle (http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... 0ade457c10) are both html puzzles that are nearby each other. There was a puzzle guru from Florida a few years back who also bookmarked those puzzles. Kind of funny since neither of them get logged more than a couple times a year at most.

I like it. Did the reviewer give you any trouble over the, er, technique?

Ha, I think a little, but not much. If I remember correctly he/she said it threw a knuckleball at the automatic review toolbox that they have at their disposal and the reviewer had to look it over manually.

With the new restrictions on html useage I doubt you can get any caches published like this anymore. Kind of sad.
