I have started a new game called Cache Bingo!. To play, you need to first visit Cache Bingo! (GCX6DP) (once it is approved). Pick up your game card and start caching!
Any cache you find after that is eligible to be used as a bingo number for your card. There are 32 cards available. There are prizes to be won and fun to be had! Questions can be posted here or on the cache page. Good luck!

Here are the rules:


Rules



  1. Once you have signed the logbook in the cache, sign out one of

    the bingo cards as well. Simply write your name in the bingo card

    log sheet beside the card number you remove. Please make sure you

    are removing the correct card.This is your playpiece.


  2. When you log your visit on Geocaching.com, please note the

    number of the bingo card you have taken. This will help me in

    verifying any claimed win.


  3. Now go caching! Any subsequent cache finds from then on can

    potentially fill one of your boxes. You are looking for the last 2

    digits in the coordinates as posted on Geocaching.com.

    Example


    N 49 54.123   

    W 097 02.456




    The above example would give you I-23, and G-56. For single digit

    numbers (in the "B" column), you must have the zero preceding the

    number(ie- N 49 51.306).


  4. When you log your finds on geocaching.com for caches you intend

    to use in the bingo game, please note that in the log entry.

    Something to the effect of "I am using this cache to play Cache

    Bingo."


  5. If the coordinates of a cache are adjusted after you find it,

    you can still use the numbers you claimed.


  6. Anyone who picks up a bingo card can play. If you are visiting

    from Germany, you are welcome to take a card home and play there.

    Just be advised that any prizes you win must be picked up in

    Winnipeg!


  7. *BONUS* Watch for my new

    Lizardo Cache Bingo! tokens in random caches I visit. If you

    find one of these tokens, you get to use it as a free play token in

    the column indicated by the letter on the token.





Well, that's it. Hope you like it.

Lizardo

Sound like fun!  I hope I got this right but can we take the bingo card and go caching anywhere in Manitoba.

Absolutely! You can take a card and play anywhere on the planet.  But the prizes are to be picked up in Winnipeg.

I'm assuming that we are to complete the card, ie (blackout) to win?

I guess you could say that is the grand prize. There are incremental prizes starting at completing a row, column or diagonal. There is a prize for the X, a box, and finally the grand prize of the complete card.

Each individual card is only eligible for one line prize, but once you acheive that, you can still work towards one of the larger prizes.

New finds only, or can we revisit previous finds?

Only new finds are eligible.  And to answer another couple of questions:



1. Events are eligible



2. Only the Posted coordinates of a multi/puzzle are allowed.  Not the stages/final/solved coordinates.

Good afternoon Scott,



I got my bingo card #11, I used the link you provided here to see the if the geocache was approved yet and it was so I went to get one.  My question is when I am logged on the geocache website today and click on the List newest in Manitoba(on the right hand side & I was logged on) it was not listed.  I just tried the geocache website again now to log on my find and it still does not show up in the new geocaches in Manitoba page.  Do I need to make changes to my profile in geocaching website?

'New' caches are listed by date placed, not by date approved.  If you keep looking through the list, you'll find the BINGO cache was placed on July 16th.  



BTW, Thanks Lizardo for creating this game!  This is going to give me something to do while visiting the in-laws in Ottawa next week!!

There have been a couple of rule updates on the Cache Bingo! cache page and as of today, there are 4 line winners and Ztirnats has claimed the "X" prize.  Thought I'd post here as well in case folks are checking here for updates.



There are still 11 line prizes available and the "Box" and "Blackout" prizes are still up for grabs.



 



Have fun.

We are down to one remaining line prize!  This is it folks.  This is where you decide if you want to be a winner, or a ...well... NOT a winner. 



Everyone who claimed a line or one of the premium prizes should now either have their prize or at least the coordinates to find their prize.



Please let me know if I have missed you.



Thanks to all who have played so far.  It has been fun.  Look for Cache Bingo #2 coming soon. But not too soon.

Cache Bingo #1 is over!  The last line prize has been claimed by candaceandwill. 



Congratulations to everyone who played!  I will be setting up another game this winter.  Watch for it around Christmas.
