Not for real, of course. Zombie Apocalypse Geocaching is an expansion pack for the Cache Me If You Can Geocaching board game!, made by our old friends from DPH Games. There is a current Kickstarter campaign, which ends on Tuesday, February 3rd at 11:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, to help finance the release of the 2nd edition of this expansion pack, as well as to offer supporters special promotional items that do not come with the base expansion pack. There are only 11 days left in the campaign as of the date of this post. DPH Games has had great success with their previous Kickstarter campaigns, so we’re hoping any Geocachers seeing this post can help put them over the top on this one.
We’ve interviewed the creators of two current Geocaching related Kickstarter campaigns here on the OCNA Blog in October, 2014. Most recently was Steve, the man behind The Travel Bugs band, and their campaign for their proposed new album of Geocaching related songs “Pimp Your Cache“, on October 16th. Clicking on the image will take you to their campaign page. As of the date of this post, Halloween night, they are only 7% funded with 13 days to go in the campaign. Can you help them out? They could really use it. It’s a very worthy project, and as those of you familiar with Kickstarter campaigns know, they will not receive any of the pledged funds if their goal is not met.
The GoCache Geocaching Card Game, which we blogged about one week earlier on October 9th, has been extremely successful; it was funded the first day, as you can see by this little badge they earned for their project page from kicktraq.com. This project is currently 281% funded with 8 days to go. They have also reached 4 of their 5 so called stretch goals (which we didn’t cover in our interview with them). These are basically “upgrades” on their finished manufactured product; for example, when the 100 backers goal was reached, all GoCache games were upgraded to high quality linen cards. There is still time to help them reach their final stretch goal!
So we here at the OCNA blog would like to end the month by saying best of luck to Steve and The Travel Bugs on their Pimp Your Cache project, and congratulations to Tortoise and Hare Creations on their GoCache project. Please consider giving both of these projects another look while they’re still active, especially the Pimp Your Cache album by the Travel Bugs.
Above is the Kickstarter video for the GoCache geocaching card game, by Tortoise and Hare Creations. The Kickstarter campaign for this geocaching themed card game was just launched today, Thursday, October 9th, 2014, at 4:00 Eastern Time; just a couple hours before this blog post. You can see they are already well on their way to their $1,500 funding goal to make this game a reality. Before the campaign kicked off, Tortoise and Hair Creations (hereafter known and THC), were nice enough to answer some questions about the game and the campaign for this blog via email.
10/14/14 UPDATE: Geocachers have been showing the GoCache Kickstarter campaign some serious love! Their initial goal of raising $1,500 was reached in an amazing 6 hours. Note the “stretch goals” they have set, about about 1/3 down their Kickstater project page. Over $2,000 has now been raised, and the first stretch goal (a custom icon for the trackable on Geocaching.com card) has been attained. There are still 25 days for you to get in on this very popular Kickstarter project.
When evidence linked to sadistic murders shows up in Geocache holds, a detective must play the killer’s deadly game to catch him.
Above is the promotional video for Finders Keepers, A Thriller/Crime/Mystery Novel in which Geocaching plays a primary role. Author Devon Pollard currently has a Kickstarter.com crowd funding campaign underway to help finance the publishing of the book. He is hoping to raise $7,500 through contributions, and there are only 10 days left as of the date of this blog post! Devon was nice enough to answer some questions for us on this project, including giving Geocachers more detail about how their hobby is involved then is given on the Kickstarter page.
