GeosportZ

Welcome to the GeosportZ Game

The game runs from 01-Aug-2008 00:00:01 to 30-Sep-2008 23:59:59.


The fun has Concluded.

The 2008 GeosportZ (aka GZ) game is all about geocaching based on the disciplines found in the modern Olympic Games. Try your hand at Equestrian, Marathon, Kayaking, Basketball, Sailing, Triathlon and many, many more disciplines.

There are 30 different disciplines and related challenges to choose from during this game. Some will be easy. Some will be tough. Some may be impossible.

This game does not require you to find a minimum number of caches, but does require you to reach, but not exceed a target of 888 points. Why 888? The Beijing Olympics commences on the 8th August 2008 (080808) and so the good target is the same lucky number, 888. Are you feeling lucky?

Q&A can be followed in this thread at Geocaching Australia

There are 10 prizes on offer.

The 10 prizes have been made available through the sales of the Australian 2008 geocoin and yes, they are all 2008 Australian geocoins which will be unavailable in shops, so they are definately prizes worth getting all sporty about.

  • 5 cachers who achieve the highest points score without going over 888
  • 1 cacher who completes finishes in 10th position on the ladder, regardless of their points score
  • 1 cacher who completes finishes in 15th position on the ladder, regardless of their points score
  • 1 cacher who completes finishes in 25th position on the ladder, regardless of their points score
  • 1 cacher who completes finishes in 35th position on the ladder, regardless of their points score
