Geocache Description:

You are looking for an ammo can, albeit small. The cache is not at the posted coordinates.


Atari Video Cube and Rubik’s Cube were 2600 games sold by Atari starting in 1982. During the Rubik’s Cube craze, Atari began licensing discussions for the Rubik’s Cube name while Doug Macrae and Josh Littlefield of General Computer in Cambridge began developing the game. Unfortunately the licensing of the game dragged on well past the completion of the development and so Atari released the game exclusively to Atari Club members under the title Atari Video Cube. Later when the licensing was completed, the product was changed back to Rubik’s Cube and sold through retail but in very limited quantities. Several years later, probably to save the royalty cost, Atari reintroduced the game to the market under the Atari Video Cube name.


In this game, the player controlled Marvin the Cube Master. You moved him around a six-sided cube with nine squares to a side. The object was to get all nine squares on each side to be the same color in the least amount of time or fewest moves, depending on the game variation you select. Marvin changed a space's color by standing on it while you pressed the fire button. Marvin then exchanged the color he was with the space. Marvin could not move onto a space of the same color as he was.


Sorry but I wrote down the coordinates for this cache on my Rubik's Cube but someone played with it before I had a chance to take a picture.


You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.
