Ingress game by Niantic Project/Google

Anyone else playing?

https://www.ingress.com/

I am really liking this game for getting up and out around my city and wider area. Great for traveling also to find stuff in a new area.

Don't download the game though! If you think you might want to give it a try let me send you an invite (I get credit for a recruiting badge).

There is no money involved, you can't/won't be asked to buy anything. It is basically a world wide game of capture the flag between two teams. I've discovered a bunch of places in my own city, that I have lived on and off for 25yrs, that I had never seen before. All of the 'portals' are player suggested and you get some really creative ones showing up.

This game is already 3+ years old. Played it when it just came out as a closed beta. It's very easy to cheat with fake-location apps. Other than that.. some interesting characters play this game.. mostly unemployed or drop outs... or occasional professional with a rooted phone with fake gps.

Seems really interesting but I don't think I have the time for something like that. I would like to give it a try though :)

IM me your email and I will send you a quote. It can be fun at any volume of playing, at least it has been so far.

Here are a couple of sites that explain the game play.

They have done a lot to help correct that. I tried it back about 2 yrs ago and stopped pretty quick because it was a bit nuts. I gave it another try after a friend started playing it and it is a lot better.

Yea you can still cheat but that takes out so much of the fun of it.

The teams can also do some pretty cool stuff. I helped work on this cross team effort in Albuquerque for PI day.
