Game: Lego Pod
Type: Dead Drop
Location: Chicago, IL
Date: December 18, 2009 “In the afternoon”
The Bradford Rant Institute must be getting better at decoding the Pod landing coordinates, since their first update on Pod #4 is a smaller area than the previous pods have been. They say it will be landing in the Chicago area “very soon”.
The recovery for the Houston pod seemed to be smoother than the Orlando recovery since I haven’t heard any negative reports. Of course, I haven’t heard any reports at all, so maybe “no news is good news” is an utter lie. However, since the landing location wasn’t narrowed down until the very last minute, there shouldn’t have been a ton of people just waiting for the exact moment to claim the prize. It does appear that the landing location was first announced on the main page of B.R.I.C.K. rather than via the Map page or the Twitter, so keep that in mind if F5 is your best friend.
The pod landed at the LEGO store at 520 North Michigan Ave, Chicago.
There’s also been a report by lindavz, who runs one of the LEGO forums, that those who show up to the Pod site will be eligible for early testing of LEGO Universe if they provide an email address to the LEGO contact person. And don’t forget, you can also get a free tshirt for showing up as well, so if you’re in the area it might be worth it to make the trip (even if you don’t win the pod).
