Post dragonZone cheat sheet
Anyone got a one pager which can explain the rules, tips and tricks of dragonZone? Would be very handy at our upcoming event where everybody are dZ noobs.

The wiki has some, but it's not all that helpful, mostly because I haven't told everyone what's what.
http://wiki.geocaching.com.au/wiki/DragonZone

I'll see if I can update the wiki with the tips tonight which might help. There is nothing on what rank is what or what multiplication factors you get for getting to new ranks. I just haven't told anyone. I'll see if I can add some detail on that sort of stuff too.

The wiki has been updated:
http://wiki.geocaching.com.au/wiki/DragonZone

As geo_jas says, not knowing how it works is part of the fun. It's really tough to gain control of a zone, then watch it get stolen away from you a day later when someone swoops in a finds the caches, controlling more of them than you did. It's also fun to move caches OUT of a rivals zone just as they moved them IN. HIding caches initially takes greater control, but then you want to have more of your own clan members finding them than the rivals. So gang up on rival clans, make attacks on their controlled zones, gain control of more and more zones.

Been working on a simple sheet to help noobs like myself.

Anything factually incorrect?

I tried to turn on commenting.

You can also leave suggestions in this thread which I will incorporate

Nothing factually wrong there.

There are 3 level of control.
You control a state when you control most of the dragonZones in that state.
You control a dragonZone when you control most of the caches in that dragonZone.
You control a cache when your clan has the most points allocated against that cache.

Of course control means, in the real world, nothing. Or does it? Maybe the future will offer something.

No official GCA apps I'm afraid.

There is GA Cacher for Android which we recommend (but isn't ours).

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE GEOCACHING AUSTRALIA APP FOR IOS, it is using old data and does not update, and is a waste of money.

Which would be SO much more fun if Clan Minotaur was actually a functioning clan :? (feeling a tad alone)

Poke some friends, let them know about GCA, encourage them to support the uniquely Australian product.

oh definitely already done that, brought in one Minotaur and working on a second (she just found her first 10 caches so slowly teaching he the ropes) but it would be nice if the general clan was happening.

I agree. The only way to get people to play is to have more caches and the more caches the more people and the more people the more caches. Until we can get the caches the people will stay away.
