The Caching Place

Announcing.....The Pocket Decoder

Recommended Posts

I just did my first tour of duty in the Hobbit's Mystery Adventure - what a trip :blink: I got through the first level with no problem, even though I've never been good at puzzles or decyphering, but hit a wall at the second level (until I got the keyword, then no problem at all). I'm giving up for the night but can't wait until morning and will then give it another go :lol: Great game so far, very challenging.

Finished 3rd level in 1 hr, 8 min., using keyword. With another 20-minutes I think I would have cracked the code without the keyword. Getting better.

WOW...it never ceases to amaze us what folks get for geocoins on EBAY!!! Yikes :D:D:)

 

ORDER UPDATE: The 2nd order of Pocket Decoders are currently IN production. We should have them on or before June 29th. If you would like to order one now, there is a presale page up on our website: The Caching Place the poker wheel is also in production and available for purchase as a "presale" item and will ship at the same time as the Pocket Decoders. Thanks everyone for all the great comments on this coin!

A new center coin......does that mean a new game coming soon? Mine is on PREORDER! This will make a good addition to my decoder!

And a lovely wheel it is, too. :D I ordered two in case someone forgets to.

I have finally gotten around to pre-ordering one of these and the new poker decoder ring. :)

 

Now to sit and wait patiently... which I can do... unlike the fools who paid $128 for theirs on eBay! :D

Are the wheels going to be stock items too?

If someone is getting a couple of extra I wouldn't mind making a trade or something down the road. If you buy only 1 wheel, the shipping cost and handling fees cost more than it does (to Canada anyway) so I wouldn't mind trading for one. keep me in mind please

I have the decoder already! Very nice BTW!

I have a quick question about the center face pieces though. Are they only going to be made available through presales? I hate to make a $3.50 purchase now, when I can wait and add it to my next coin order. Probably when the cache-aid coin goes on sale.... :anibad: But then again, I would hate to miss out by them all being sold out during pre-sale!

Thanks

Yes, the wheels will be a stock item. We've ordered 1,000 of the poker wheels and an additional 500 Pocket Decoders which are currently in production - The presale is running so folks who want to guarantee their purchase can do so. We're busy putting together some FUN "poker" challenges and will get these listed on the website soon. We will also be activating the link where you can "submit" wheel ideas for future productions.

Sorry I missed your question earlier. I think you're safe to wait for the Cache-Aid Box coins to go on sale next week and purchase them together....keep in mind though that we won't have the Poker Wheels in until the end of June, but the Cache Aid Box coins will be in stock and ready for shipment on the sale day. If you order them together your entire order will ship the end of June when the Poker Wheels arrive.

Presale Update: We originally had a production schedule of 45 days or so for 500 Pocket Decoders. We were able to arrange with the factory to produce 250 of the coins and meet an earlier ship date of on or before June 29. :angry: As of now, the preorder sales have reached this mark and are closed. Those who have placed a preorder will be included in this first shipment.

 

PLEASE NOTE: We are still expecting the remaining 250 coins to be completed within the original 45 day period and go on sale around the first week of July. We'll keep you posted if we get any other updates.....if we're lucky maybe all 500 will ship on the 29th!! Thanks everyone!

And you beat me in the standings by this >< much! :)

 

That's what I get for starting puzzles at work and then getting sucked into never-ending meetings, doh!! That and screwing up and over-thinking the Wizard's Chamber and getting locked out for 24 hours.

 

Just remember the KISS principle when you are off to see the wizard, and you are likely to beat my time! :angry:

When you do start playing, try to remember to take a handfull of Tylenol's about an hour before starting. Your brain WILL start to hurt!

I pre-ordered my pocket decoder on May 28, so I'm not really sure when to expect it but I know I am looking forward to this game everyone is raving about. :)

... the Hobbit's Mystery Adventure? :)

Could someone please post a link to it. :)

Hey Tom4props:

 

The link is: http://www.thecachingplace.com/pocket/

 

If this doesn't take you exactly where you need to be, go to their home page (says "The caching Place" to your left) and it should get you going. Clear your desk of any unnecessary clutter, put away any sharp objects and prepare to get mentally blasted. They tell you how you can make a paper decoder if you want to get started playing now, but earlier in this thread, thecachingplace said the order was expected to be finished for the next batch around June 29th.

:) I can't catch a break on this thing! I don't buy many coins....I missed when these originally went on sale. I saw them come back up for pre-order and tried to do it with my fiance's credit card but it would only accept PayPal, check or money order. Since I have the Paypal account, it would need to wait until my disability check got deposited for the month. That happened today....so I go to pre-order and see that they're gone again. Can someone tell me just to give up on this thing?!? I suck at timing my jumps through hoops and I sure won't be buying one off that eplace. Sorry for the rant....just frustrated at continued bad luck!
