This was (and still is) a great game. I retrieved nine poker chips from caches I hadnít found yet, and by revisiting about a dozen other caches. The tenth chip Ė and the one that completed the sequence of seven Ė I got trading with polarbeardiggers after he beat me to it at Tree Eating Rock. Iíd been only trading one to one poker chips for poker chips, but as PBD wasnít collecting the Stuntman treasures, he was happy to get his first MBGA GeoCoin (the Queens influence, I think). The big thanks goes to Lizardo though, because I couldnít have got the run of seven without trading some poker chips thatíll hopefully help his hand.

Mischievous maneuvers by The Stuntman kept the game interesting and tracking down coins found by other players made it an entertaining and very social game. Now I know I want the Queen to represent me when it comes time to negotiating my next raise! I spent many hours following logs and even developed a spreadsheet to track it all.

Thanks Stuntman!

PS, the 9 through 15 are dead, but I've still got three other coins to trade - the 7, 23 and 28.

Tim, you look like one of those reporters from Baghdad on a satellite phone.  Is that the lock from Saddam's hidey hole?


Seriously, congrats buddy!  You deserve it.  You're the best.  You rule!  Go Turdleeggs Go!


Now find ME a chip!  Pleeeeeeeaassse!

I found 027 some time ago, went into a state of dormancy, then realized you guys are really after these little things.  I''m willing to trade so send a message and I'll try to reply pomptly.  Let my love of fishing be your guide

Iíve been meaning to post these pictures for a while now. This wooden lock created by Peter & Gloria is amazing! Itís beautifully crafted and finished, the key turns smoothly and shackle has a very solid feel to it. The lock is larger than I expected at 20.7 x 11.5 x 5.8 cm. Thanks Stuntman for this generous prize and Peter & Gloria for creating this work.

Oh, I haven't given up.  But I am quite excited about some of this snow going away!  Gives me some more targets.

polarbeardiggers out trying to make new friends with the local wildlife,stumbled on to a few stuntmans poker chips numbering #047-#048,thats right two in sequence already,i bet there must be someone out there that is willing to make a trade with the polarbeardiggers,after all the prizes are still out there to win, i'm leaning towards a couple of mbga coins recently minted,would most likely tear these gems from my clutches,email at polarbeardiggers@netscape.net for trading scenarios,.

We ran in to CarBellSeekers today, and they were telling us how they found this cool poker chip with a number 36 on it!

Does the number 31 mean anything to someone?  When its attached to a Stuntman poker chip!?  There it was in Grateful Stash today (you were a couple of months too early, Lizardo) begging for a new home.

OK.  I'm tired.  I admit there are a few of Turdles chips here I have traded for as well as MHz's coveted 42.  But this represents alot of digging and dealing.  Thank you Stuntman for a cool game that I hope will be revisited again.
