Game: Must Love Robots
Type: Finale Event
Location: your local Subway restaurant
Date: to be completed before July 13th
Must Love Robots is drawing to a close and they are having an finale event that anyone can take part in – provided there is a local Subway restaurant near them.
Fifty years ago, 36 titans of industry, fearful of a possible robot uprising, started building substations into Subway restaurants where they could input a special code that would trigger the robo-apocalypse no matter where they were in the country. The code is input via the soda fountains at Subway. No, I’m not making this up.
The codes are numerical, so you will have to number the different soda dispensers left to right as 1 through 8. There are two different codes that can be input into the soda fountains. One code will destroy the robots. The other code will save the robots. You will have to provide evidence that you input the code, either via photographs or videos.
To destroy the robots, enter code 5338
To save the robots, enter code 8335
The missions need to be completed by July 13th, so Sunday, July 12th will be the last day to actually do the mission. When you have your photographic evidence, you will need to submit it to either Pastor Ned (PastorLudd@godhatesrobots.org) if you have destroyed the robots, or Johnny Lugnut (Johnny@vivalarobot.com) if you have saved them. You can keep track of how many people have chosen at Johnny’s new website VivaLaRobot.com.
This will be your last chance to take part in a Must Love Robots event unless you’re coming to Portland, so don’t miss out. Just because this isn’t a structured event doesn’t mean that you can’t have a blast completing it.
Update: The robots have been saved (for the time being)! Thanks to everyone who submitted videos – even if it was for the 36. So now that the robots live on, we can still find 011ie true love. So it’s not quite over yet!
