My idea is not like a Munzee, they require the user to scan a special QR code for points, badges and levels using an app on an Android or iPhone smart phone. We would just print a password on the game piece. There is no log to sign, the user just needs to find the game piece and get the serial number from it. The password needed to log the find on OCUS.
- Users can print their own game piece and assign their own password to it, a number/letter combination of not more than 10 characters.
- They can laminate the game piece or place it in a waterproof container. Their choice, but we discourage using a container just for the bit cache.
- There would be no distance restriction to existing geocaches EXCEPT for other caches of this type. The 300' rule would then apply.
- Would some people cheat? Yes, just like they do armchair logging now.
- It can be paperless as they can find them using the Columbus geocaching app or any GPS that will accept GPX files. They can log them from any web browser. Otherwise, they write down the name of the cache and the password from it and log it when they get back to a computer.
- The game piece would contain the shortened URL to the cache page as well as a QR code that also goes to the cache page for easy logging.
- The QR code is a basic one generated using the goo.gl site.
