It's not bad enough that I am pulling what little hair I have out working up the stages for my new Chrip cache now I am stuck on Attribute meanings. As I read down the list of possible attributes I ran across FIELD PUZZLE. Okay I think I know what it means but I don't know that for sure. Being an evil builder I am making each stage with a twist. To me each twist might be called a puzzle. One stage will have an actual puzzle involved so no matter what I clicked the ohmy.gif FIELD PUZZLE button.

Now to expand my knowledge base I would like for one of the real master cachers to explain this attribute to me. Who knows maybe my stupidity might help another cacher as well.

Thanks in advance for any assistance given. happy.gif

Stuck on stupid somewhere in the middle of evil.

"Field puzzle" means a puzzle you have to solve in the field - at the cache location(s), rather than on the computer beforehand. The puzzle could take many forms, but the attribute indicates that you can't resolve the final coordinates before arriving at the cache location(s).

A reviewer recently asked me to use the Field Puzzle attribute on my new cache because a searcher has to figure out what special tool is needed to open the cache container. It is not an Unknown cache type; the coordinates are provided. The cache description contains the puzzle that reveals the special tool that can be done on the computer before arriving. So, apparently the definition of this attribute is more broad to the reviewers, indicating that there is something more that has to be solved. The language must evolve.
