Themed caches are caches that have an unusual requirement or request beyond finding the cache and signing the log.

In 2007, Geocaching.com published revised Cache Listing Requirements/Guidelines that clarified how themed caches should be listed. Themed caches with mandatory requirements should be listed as mystery/puzzle caches. Themed caches with optional requests can be listed as traditional caches, assuming they otherwise meet the guidelines for traditional caches.

In 2009, Geocaching.com revised the guidelines to prohibit mandatory requirements. Cache owners may request cache seekers to perform optional, simple tasks. Such tasks must be optional. Furthermore, this guideline now applies to previously existing caches with Additional Logging Requirements (ALRs). The ALRs are now officially optional, and cache owners may not delete the Found logs of those who do not complete the ALRs.
