I've been wondering when this would happen. Some cemeteries are great for caches, but I've always been leery of micros in trees among the graves.
Did geocaching prompt this, or is it coincidence?

""play at any game or amusement therein""
This wording makes it seem like they want to force cemeteries to be depressing.
