Knowledge Books: Updates and Additions

Recommended Posts

The Groundspeak Knowledge Books contain helpful information for every player of our games. It was created by Lackeys and Reviewers working together.



Start with the options you'll find on the left margin of the page. You can browse the many articles that way.


Some Knowledge Book pages have been highlighted and others have been marked as "most helpful" by geocachers like you.


This thread will be a growing list of recently-added pages. As such, you may want to "watch it" or subscribe to it so that you are alerted when new pages become available.


Thanks for reading!

Updated Event Cache, CITO and Mega-Event guidelines with relation to external sponsorship.

Mega-Events are bound by an additional guideline about this aspect of organization, and other events types are not.


From guideline for Mega-Events: "In consideration of the significant resources we devote to publicizing the Mega-Event, Groundspeak reserves the right to deny or retract publication of Mega events sponsored by other commercial geocache listing services, as well as parent and affiliated companies, unless written permission has been granted in advance by Groundspeak."
