The list of all the newest letterboxes can be found here:

However, those letterboxes could be anywhere around the world, and not necessarily the closest to you.

There are yahoo groups

Those still exist? I'm surprised that Yahoo hasn't shut them down. Or sold them like they did with Flickr.

Still there but definitely not very active. Letterboxing USA seems to be the most active with a whopping 26 posts in all of 2018, none in 2019. It is a shame, they used to be so much fun to read.

I'm shocked.

In the Great Lakes group, we have a letterboxing bingo game that is run through the Yahoo group. So from December (sign up time) through April/May (end of the game), we have daily word posts, comments, puzzles, and so forth.

Wow, I had no idea that bingo was still going on either. I won a couple of times one year, but didn't have a use for most of the prizes I received, so I didn't play again.

Wow, I was lucky enough to win a couple of years ago and loved the prizes I received. Plus these last two years every day we get to enjoy the poetic wit of our bingo master.

I'm playing for the first time this year. Not winning, not losing...but enjoying the interaction with a different group

The poetry accompanying the daily word is entertaining! And there are some cryptic exchanges going on, but I haven't had time to tackle those.

I've played Bingo every year since I've been a letterboxer (10 years this summer) except 1 year. I enjoy the different interactions with letterboxers, the thrill (or not) or seeing what the word is each day, the interesting ways the words are presented (each Bingo Master has had his/her own style), and I love the ciphers! I am amazed at BaliWho's cleverness (and she's always willing to give me a nudge in the right direction if I can't figure out the cipher).

Prizes? I won twice in one year and thought they were just great. But the prizes aren't why I play. Bingo is just another way of staying a bit connected with the letterboxing community.

By the way, our Bingo game has not yet produced the final winner.

Oh! And, on another aside, there are clues to letterboxes hidden within our Letterbox Great Lakes site.
