Dexter – Live Event – Los Angeles, CA


Game: Dexter / Serial Huntress
Type: Live Event
Location: 34° 2′ 19″ N, 118° 13′ 4″ W, near Hollenbeck Park / the abandoned Linda Vista Hospital in Los Angeles (Boyle Heights)
Date: Friday, August 27, 2010, in the afternoon
Status: Concluded

The players of the Dexter / Serial Huntress ARG were given a video that lead them to a new website that gave them some interesting recipes to try out.

Beef Chili To Die For
1. Brown the meat in a large skillet with vegetable oil. Add water then simmer covered for an hour until meat is tender.
2. Heat oil in medium saucepan. Add canned kidney beans, oregano, celery, onion and green pepper, then sauté for 2 minutes.
3. Add garlic-onion-flour mixture to cooked meat. Then add remaining ingredients to meat mixture. Simmer for a half hour.
4. Let soup sit and cool to about 34 °C
5. Stir for approximately 19 seconds then indulge in your meal.

Hearty Veal Roast
1. Mix together salt, pepper and cinnamon, then rub over roast.
2. Heat a teaspoon of oil in a large skillet. Add onions, garlic, parsley thyme and tarragon. Mix together then set aside.
3. Use a pan large enough to hold all ingredients. Cover then bake at 118 °C for a long time – over an hour.
4. Uncover pan and continue baking for 13 minutes.
5. Transfer meat to serving platter. Skim fat from cooking juices then pour over roast.
6. Cut roast to desired serving size then, using a fork and knife, cut a small piece off. Blow for 4 seconds then taste your hearty meal.

This is my Friday afternoon special. I hope you enjoy it. And remember, using different cooking equipment may yield different results, so be sure to check-in on your meal.

Using the numbers in the recipes (degrees, minutes, seconds), the players came up with a GPS coordinate: 34° 2′ 19″ N, 118° 13′ 4″ W. This is near Hollenbeck Park in Los Angeles. It’s also right next to the abandoned Linda Vista Hospital, which is now used primarily as a filming location, which makes it an ideal setting for an event in a serial killer ARG.

The recipe says this is a “Friday afternoon special,” but doesn’t give any specific time or directions on what to do once you get there (besides checking in I guess). Seems odd for it to be so vague considering Friday is a workday, but it’s possible that more information will be forthcoming in the next 24 hours.

Game: Conspiracy for Good
Type: Live Event
Location: Brick Lane, East End of London
Date: July 24, 2010 Event: 12.00 – 15.00
Status: Concluded

The second London event of Conspiracy for Good is being held this weekend at Brick Lane at the 1-2-3-4 Festival. The free registration (for those 18 and over) will secure your place for the event and give you a ticket to the 1-2-3-4 Festival. You will need to search for clues hidden in the art and music in order to thwart Blackwell Briggs.

There will also be a street diversion benefiting Kidsco so bring a new toy to give away to a kid.

Secret Lewis – Live Event – London


Game: Secret Lewis
Type: Live Event
Location: TenderPixel Gallery, London
Date: Saturday, July 10, 1-6pm
Status: Concluded

The latest mission of Secret Lewis is having a live event this Saturday in London. Lewis Hamilton needs our help in tracking down a forged Frank Kline painting so that he can recover the genuine painting, stolen by a cultural attaché, without causing a diplomatic incident.

Anna has requested that people meet at the TenderPixel Gallery between 1-6pm on Saturday, July 10th. It’s on Cecil Court near Leicester Square. No word on what you’ll actually be doing during the mission. Maybe tracking spies through the city in an easier way that doesn’t require you to try and watch 3 red blips at once. Took me forever to complete Mission 7 a second time (Firefox crashed after my first success).

Conspiracy for Good – Live Event – London


Game: Conspiracy for Good
Type: Live Event
Location: Traitors Gate, Thames North Riverbank, London
Date: July 17, 2010 Event: 12.00 – 18.00 Party: 21.00 – late
Status: Concluded

The Conspiracy for Good is having a series of London live events over the next few weeks. Registered participants will be given “a device equipped with GPS and image-recognition software” to use during the missions so that they can find the streaming videos and hidden clues throughout London in an attempt to help the CFG expose Blackwell Briggs.

The first event is called “Get Her In!” and requires CFG members to create a street diversion to allow Nadirah to get away from the Blackwell Briggs security agents.

Date: July 17, 2010
Location: Traitors Gate, Thames North Riverbank, London
Time: 12.00 – 18.00
Party: 21.00 – late

She has crossed thousands of miles, to expose Blackwell Briggs. Meet Nadirah at the Thames21 For Shore mud larking, at the Traitors Gate, on the Thames North Riverbank. Create a street diversion, so she can disappear in the crowd. Security guards will hunt you, as you search for the Conspiracy For Good in London.

Registration is required for the event (presumably because Nokia only has a limited number of phones to lend out), but it’s free and should be quite fun.

Conspiracy for Good – Live Event – Berlin


Game: Conspiracy for Good
Type: Live Event
Location: Berlin, Germany
Date: June 30, 2010
Status: Concluded

The Non-Members of the Conspiracy for Good have been trying to track down a woman named Nadirah and a contract that has been obtained by an agent of Blackwell Briggs. They have tracked both to Berlin and are in need of local assistance to track them down.

All the latest indications are pointing to both Nadirah and the contract being in Berlin, and we need all the help we can get from all able and willing souls in the area to find her. We are going to do a more organized search tomorrow evening, so if you live in the area, or know your way around it and are able to identify places, send an email to lowkey@conspiracyforgood.com and include your mail and/or your phone number so that we might contact you if we find any leads to the location of either her or the contract.

Tron / Flynn Lives – Live Event – San Francisco, CA


Game: Tron / Flynn Lives
Type: Live Event
Location: Grand Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency, 5 Embarcadero Center, San Francisco, CA
Date: 6:15-7:45 pm, April 2, 2010
Status: Concluded

The forum members of Flynn Lives are having a meet-up before the Encom Press Conference. The meet-up is going to be from 6:15 to 7:45pm in the Grand Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency (within walking distance from the Justin Herman Plaza).

This meet-up is to plan the disruption they want to occur during the Encom Press Conference, which starts at 8pm. As part of the plan involves getting people into the Encom VIP area next to the stage, bringing your Encom badge is highly recommended. But since the event itself is open to the public, if you don’t have a badge, you will still be able to participate, just further back in the crowd.

One of the Flynn Lives forum members also said that they will be bringing t-shirts and posters for the participants. They said they are “bringing a truck load” so hopefully that means there will be enough to cover everyone who shows up, but I’d get their sooner rather than later if you want to secure yourself some goodies.

Tron / Flynn Lives – Live Event – San Francisco, CA


Game: Tron / Flynn Lives
Type: Live Event
Location: Justin Herman Plaza, San Francisco, CA
Date: 8 pm, April 2, 2010
Status: Concluded

Encom International has issued a press release about an upcoming event by Executive Consultant Alan Bradley where he “will introduce the latest addition to the Encom International product library” at 8pm on April 2nd in Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco.

There is speculation that you will need an Encom ID Badge in order to attend the event, but neither the Press Release nor the IGN interview with Alan Bradley talk about that. It could be that having a badge will move you to the front of the line in order to attend the event, but I would be surprised (and severely disappointed/upset at TPTB) if non-badge holding attendees were turned away completely. Especially since it can take 2-3 weeks to receive your badge after completing the game at Arcade Aid and the PR was issued just a few days ago. But you should be aware of the possibility in case you’re traveling to SF to attend the event.

Update: The badge question has been answered in another Flynn Lives forum thread.

Bring your Encom badges if you have them – if not – come anyway.

I think that there will be a VIP section for Encom employees (so badges needed for that), but the event is open to the general public.

So if you have a badge, bring it, especially if you want to get closer to the action. If you don’t have one, you’ll still be able to attend the Press Conference and the Flynn Lives meet-up prior.

Tron – Live Event – Philadelphia, Raleigh, Washington DC

We got a report in chat (#tron on irc.chat-solutions.org) from jsailor that he was the 6th person at the Atlanta drop. All he got was “just a chance to see a guy playing video poker in a “Flynn Lives” shirt telling me it had already been checked in.” This probably means that only the first person at each location will be given the phone and wallet “prize pack”. However, since I haven’t heard any reports from persons 2, 3, 4 or 5 about being denied at the location, I can’t say for sure. So please think twice about traveling long distances to attend the event since the odds are poor that you’ll end up with anything.
