Newsflash nr 66 November 2011

Welcome Geocachers,

The last 2 years, René van den Berg from Catch Me Games has been working on the boardgame Treasure Hunt. Finally, it is there, we received the 1st delivery last week.
For some time, we are discussing the distribution with Catch Me Games and we can now announce, that, not only we deliver in the Netherlands and Belgium, but throughout Europe. A very big step!

On the dutch forum Globalcaching.eu there is already a discussion ongoing about the game (in Dutch).
Maybe something for you for the long winter evenings?

Of course, we also have some new Geocoins to announce, with a Stoffelen design, the Frisia Geocoin and a series of speciale Geocoins with almsost a complete collection of Compass Rose Geocoins from 2005 - 2010.


Out updates can be followed on Twitter: @geocachingshop and on Facebook

Happy reading,

Marly and Willem-Jan Verberne

The frst Geocache inspired boardgameTreasure Hunt Boardgame

Plan a route to complete your own secret mission before the others. Your explorer needs to travel over roads and sandy plains, through woods and rivers, to arrive at the next coordinate using the most efficient or tactical route. Once arrived, you will receive a new coordinate or clue where the treasure on that route can be found. But watch your opponents' explorers! They will try to sabotage your activity with fallen tree trunks, damaged bridges or other obstacles. Given the right action cards, a bit of luck and perseverance, you could be the first to accomplish your mission and reach the greatest treasure of all, victory!

The game is language independent. The rules of the game are in English, German and Dutch.

Size of the box: 32 x 32 x 7 cm

Price: € 29,95 (incl 19% VAT)

Frisia GeocoinFrisia GeocoinFrisia Geocoin

The Frisia Geocoin is made after an old Dutch coin, a silver florin of Frisia, minted in the city of Leeuwarden in 1684. Frisia was one of the 7 provences of the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands. In 1579 these northern provences of the Netherlands signed the Union of Utrecht, in which they promised to support each other in their defence against the Spanish army. This was followed in 1581 by the Act of Abjuration, the declaration of independence of the provinces from Philip II of Spain. This coin was introduced in Frisia (a region in the Northern Netherlands) in 1601 as a response to changing coin weights in the southern Netherlands.

The man on the front of the coin is an unknown Frisian nobleman, with on his head a 'klapmuts' or in english - badly translated - a fliphat. The latin text 'Nisi Dominvs Nobiscvm' means 'Unless the Lord is with us'. The text '28 st' means 28 stuivers, the actual value of this Frisian florin. The two little 'Pompeblêden' (leaves of a water lily) is a little reference to the current Dutch provence Friesland.
On the back of the coin the arms of Frisia is minted. The latin text 'Florenvs Argent Ordi Frisia' means 'Silver Florin of Frisia'.

Size: 44 mm; 3 mm thickness
