Convergance with other games...

Recommended Posts

How about a BookCrossing book icon, like a travel bug that links to the actual bookcrossing.com book entry? Also, an option to enter the bookcrossing.com tracking number, like a travel bug?

 

A colorful little camera icon that links back to phototag.com when one of their cameras is left in the cache?

 

An icon with question marks and currency symbols for the different where's (insert money personage here) games?

I had never heard of bookcrossing.com before. My wife likes to leave paperbacks in caches we find, I guess we should start logging them and see what happens.

 

Any other things like this out there to add to the list?

We just started leaving bookcrossing.com books in caches this past weekend. Brought about 8, but only three caches were large enough.

 

FWIW, we leave a bookcrossing book in addition to our trade as an extra item. We figure that eventually the book will move on to another cache much like a TB, so whoever takes it would not be keeping it.

I think I am going to take a book, register it at BookCrossing, attach a Travel Bug to it, insert a Where's George bill for a bookmark. Then I will create a Letterbox-hybrid geocache to place it in and hide it on a Confluence.

You only need to get Scout to fudge his 'randomizer' so that it's also a Geodash point and a MinuteWar flag.

Wouldn't hurt if it was the Highpoint in the county and was a control point on an orienteering map...

You need to "reverse engineer" it so the cacher finds it first, then posts the coordinates...at a McDonalds...in an old shoe. icon_wink.gif

I just placed a Bookcrossing themed cache yesterday, called Bookcrossing Library, and manually linked the books I planted in the cache to the Bookcrossing website, line this: Richard Paul Russo, “Ship of Fools”

 

I also called out the cache page from the "crossing zone" on the bookcrossing site - a location where you left a book, which in this case is a cache. It would be way cool if the two sites could key off each other on this cache/crossing zone overlap!

I approached Bookcrossing in March and he said cool, let's do something. And that's the last I heard about it.

Ball's in your court, Jeremy. Hit it back to him with an idea.
