This is the story of HurkleQuest in Oregon Game 01, played via email by fourth- and fifth-grade teams in Oregon from 2005-04-17 through 2005-05-11. Our invitation to play said:Hurkle and the Hurkle Hiders will soon move to Oregon. In HurkleQuest in Oregon Game 01, your task is to find our future home in Oregon. Each turn, send two guesses to The Hurkle Hiders: MathBackpacks@aol.com. Each guess is a town, village, hamlet, or city in Oregon. We will calculate the distance in kilometers from each of your guesses to our future home in Oregon. This distance is as the Western Meadowlark (Oregon State bird) flies along a line segment from your guess to our location. We will send you a color clue for each guess.
