Geocache Description:

This is a three-part cache, with ammo boxes, located in the
following Wilton Parks: Cherry Lane, Bradley and Town Forest. The
first cache is located in Cherry Lane Park. The second is in
Bradley Park, and the third and final cache is in Town Forest off
Branch Brook Road.The object of the cache is to get the best poker
hand and compare it with the hands of the three previous visitors
to the final cache.

This is how it works: The first cache contains envelopes (with three playing cards in each) and the coordinates for the next stage. TAKE ONE ENVELOPE but do not open. The second cache contains envelopes (with two playing cards in each) and the coordinates for the final stage. TAKE ONE ENVELOPE but do not open. When you have found the third ammo box, open the envelopes to reveal your poker
hand. You can now improve your hand by discarding up to three cards and replacing them with additional cards which are in individual envelopes in the final cache. Once completed, note your hand and leave your cards in the cache (envelope marked "Used Cards") for
recycling. Finally, post your hand as a find and compare it with the hands of the three previous players. Only post your find when the final cache has been found and all three logs have been signed.

Trades include Old Maid, Go Fish and other card games. Allow 30 minutes to an hour for each stage (not including drive-time). The stages need not be completed on the same day. The envelopes must not be opened until the final cache is found. Good Luck!
