sounds to be a good idea, probably get taggers from each state's game picking it up and running with it

any rulez like ... have to be placed in a different state that the tag "captured"?
I think I like the idea of just telling people where it is. I mean my God could U imagine the Google time it would take on some that out in MT to try to find!!! We cant all be the google jock that Banjo is . I like the idea also and to start in my home state and to be the first to grab the NA tag, MMMMMMM the thought of it!

Well I figured to help get the tag moving, I'd just say what the tag is up front.. Figure this version of the game is more about riding and moving the tag more so than learning about ones local area through trivia based tag.. Also, if the tags are named up front, it might encourage people who are traveling to snag a tag and drop it somewhere else along there route.. I wouldn't think anyone traveling would be interested in trying to guess what the tag is.


I was going to add a distance rule, but didn't want to discourage anyone from participating if they couldn't move the tag very far, so I thought better of it.

I like the fact that you don't have to be a "googlemeister" to find the tag. I'd make a run to Kitty Hawk if I could manage a day off this week... but the work load isn't looking very good.

Cool game. I hope it takes off.

Nothing in the rules to prohibit you from doing just that!

Rules for this version:

#1 File photos are not allowed.

#2 Dirt is allowed; however, let everyone know that the route to the tag includes dirt roads. Also, use your judgement on placing the tag to ensure that someone else will most likely come and get it, i.e. don't turn this into the "lets see who can find the most obscure tag location in history" thread.

#3 Have fun!

Someone just go get it and get this thing started. Even if it stays in the same state, at least it will be moving.
