SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 201
Understanding Multi and Puzzle Geocaches – GeoSnippits Reboot Podcast: Ep. 201

What is a Multi-cache?
These geocaches involve two or more locations, with the final location being a physical container with a logbook inside. There are many variations, but typically once you’re at the first stage, you will receive a clue to the whereabouts of the second stage. The second stage will have a clue for the third, and so on.

What is a Puzzle cache?
The “catch-all” of geocache types, this type may involve complicated puzzles that you will first need to solve to determine the correct coordinates. Mystery/Puzzle Caches often become the staging ground for new and unique geocaches that do not fit in another category.

Differences between Multies and Puzzles?

Multi-caches:
Consists of several stages or waypoints that eventually leads to a traditional geocache

Puzzle caches:
Puzzle getting to the geocache
Puzzle getting the log out of the geocache

Pros and Cons?

Pros
Pro – Multi – Takes you on an adventure

Cons
Con – Multi – Multiple stages and a single smiley
