Ixilan appears to be a world of pirates, and merfolk, dinosaurs and vampiric inquisitors! Now it is another AR game for us, the players, to search for hidden treasure, right in our own world!
|We found one, yarr! Only took us 3 tries!|
Wizards of the Coast is sending out these trackables for the players of both Magic and Geocaching to find! The more they move, the more may come of it! Pirates being in Ixilan, we know there must be good treasure to be found.
What is geocaching? Geocaching is a treasure hunt game in our world using GPS (a map for you landlubbers!) to find little hidden boxes in the middle of plain sight! You can check out the website here: https://www.geocaching.com/play An account is free, but to search and hide things, there's a subscription fee.
These trackables move from box to box, by players moving them around! Wizards may release spoilers once the trackables move far enough (is the rumor)!
And Wizards has opened it to players the world over! #mtgxln will be the tag for you to follow these trackables!
I'm going to hide the one we found again tomorrow, and X marks the spot!

So this blog will update where other geocachers are placing them, and track videos, articles, and comments as we search for the treasures in this new world, Ixilan!
Geocaching with Dinosaurs!
