Huckle Buckle Beanstalk!

That's a game we play while geocaching.

You see, a lot of the fun of geocaching is trying to find the geocache.  In our family there are three of us, so when someone finds the geocache, basically the fun is ruined for the other two who now don't get to find the geocache.  So to avoid this, we play Huckle Buckle Beanstalk.  Here's what you do:  when you find the geocache, you don't say anything.  You continue looking around nonchalontly and move away from where the geocache is.  After a moment or two you say, "Huckle buckle beanstalk!"  This lets the others know you've found it.  This way they get to keep trying to find it.  If one of them find it, they do the same thing and call out "Huckle buckle beanstalk!" and the last person can still have the fun of trying to find it.  Or they can just give up and ask where it is.  :-)  But it keeps it fun if you're in a group.

By the way, thanks to MSTzilla for a very fun geocaching event last week!

I've heard another person say the same. Not a bad idea to keep everyone in the game.
