Now that summer is rolling around, you might be looking for more ways to get outdoors while still enjoying the awesome benefits of gaming together as a family. Geocaching is your solution! This awesome game incorporates puzzle-solving, storytelling, and adventuring, and it can be done at any time in almost any place. Geocaching has fostered a community of millions around the world, and it’s free to try for yourself.

A while ago, the Pixelkin team was lucky enough to get a tour of the Geocaching world headquarters in Seattle, Wash. All the people we met loved their jobs. Check out what they have to say about this worldwide treasure-hunting phenomenon.
