Game: Lego Pod
Type: Dead Drop
Location: Baybrook Mall, Houston, Texas
Date: Sometime before December 16, 2009
Bradford Rant reported on December 4th that Pod #3 would be landing within the next 12 days in the United States.
Update: The pod is definitely landing in Texas.
Update 2: The pod landed at the Baybrook Mall in Houston around 12pm CST on December 12. It will be there the entire day, so even if you don’t get to claim it, you’ll still be able to see it and write down the Pod ID to enter on the website.
Some tips based on the first drop in Orlando:
- If you arrive at a pod location, look for the contact person. Since they probably won’t stand out in anyway, look for someone standing near a covered case where the pod will be hidden.
- When you find the contact person, tell them the number of the pod you seek, e.g. ‘Pod No.3′. The first person to arrive at the pod location and tell the contact the correct pod number will receive the pod. Apparently yelling out the pod number when you’re in the vicinity works well.
However, there is a rumor that it goes to the first kid who tells the contact person the pod number, so you might want to bring someone younger with you as backup if you really want it.It’s been confirmed via a YouTube comment that age is not a factor when claiming the pod.
We believe this confusion relates to the discovery of the second pod, where several very clever people figured out the landing site before the pod arrived and were waiting for it. We can state categorically that ANYONE, adult or child can find a pod first and therefore get to keep it.
- Be sure to write down the Pod ID. You’ll need to enter it into the website later.
- It is still very important for others to make their way to the pod location and record the Pod ID. At Orlando they were giving out cards that you could redeem for t-shirts, so even if you don’t get the pod, you won’t necessarily walk away empty handed.
