Happy 10th Anniversary TerraClues!

Posted by Bryan Bedard - 2/22/2017

In celebration of 10 years since the launch of TerraClues, we are excited to re-launch the site with a modern look and feel. The best part of the new design is that it is mobile friendly and works great on touch devices of any size. Help us celebrate by grabbing your tablet or phone and curl up on the couch and enjoy solving a few hunts.

TerraClues home page

In addition to the new look and feel, there are a couple new features. Easily share hunts with friends on Facebook and Twitter. Check out the new Stats page to understand how far people are making it into your hunt before getting stuck.

TerraClues features

It’s now easier than ever to find interesting hunts to play. Click tags in hunt listings to quickly see other hunts with the same tag. Tags are available for categories, difficulty levels and more. Be sure to tag your hunts when create new ones or circle back and add tags now to hunts you created before.

Hunts tagged in hunt lists

TerraClues has always been popular in schools and teachers around the world use it as a fun and educational game in their classroom. To make it easier for students to jump in and play, we simplified the Schools area. Hunts have been carefully selected by our team of moderators and tagged as educational and appropriate for use within a classroom setting. Additionally, hunts are tagged for specific grade levels or subjects. Browse available hunts using the tags on the Schools page Tap into students' creativity by challenging them to create their own hunts too. A free account is required to create hunts.

TerraClues for Schools

We realize the Schools area is dramatically different than before. The original version had powerful features like the ability to create private classrooms, curate specific hunts for them to play and track their progress. Don’t panic, we didn’t take these features away completely. You can still access the full Classic Mode of the schools area.

We would love your feedback on the new design, good or bad. Email us at or reach out to us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Debugging IIS URL Rewrite Rules

Posted by Bryan Bedard - 1/26/2017

As a follow up to my blog about Using the IIS URL Rewrite Module to Provide Canonical URLs for your Site, I found a couple of helpful articles on how to debug IIS URL Rewrite rules. The instructions seem a bit intimidating at first but if you give it a try I think you will find it pretty straightforward to setup and extremely helpful once you do.

After the Rain on Piano

Me playing After the Rain by Blue Rodeo on piano. This one is real rough in spots. Pushing myself to just get these done and not think about it too much. Will improve over time.
