Mark of the Spider-Man – Dead Drop – Nationwide


Game: Mark of the Spider-Man
Type: Dead Drop
Location: Atlanta, Denver, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, Seattle
Date: February 14, 2012
Status: Concluded

The Mark of the Spider-Man viral site has updated with six locations for a new series of dead drops for the movie. It appears that each city will have an associated Twitter account that will tweet out clues to several different dead drops. The first person (over 18) at each location who gives the appropriate password will receive a prize (the first Atlanta drop looks to contain two sweatshirts, a phone, plus instructions for later). Currently, new clues for each city go up 45 minutes after the previous drop was found, so plan accordingly if you’re looking to grab one of the drops.

The Human Preservation Project is having yet another round of dead drops for individuals lucky enough to have the day off on Thursday, November 17th. The countdown page is promising that this is the HPP’s biggest expedition yet, so maybe it will be more than first come, first served (but I wouldn’t hold my breath on that).

Although the countdown page doesn’t list the “rules” that were given out on previous missions, it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow them in order to maximize your chances at getting one of the last remaining ice flies.

• Sign up at SurvivalCode.com
• Bring a mobile phone with you that can receive text messages.
• Be prepared for only one package available per location (first come, first served)

There’s a coordination thread over at Unfiction where if you want to plan your strategy (or just check out the competition).

Over on the Flynn Lives website, there is a countdown that will hit zero on February 24th at 11am EST. Below the countdown there is a slowly revealing list of city names. Current speculation is that things will be happening in those cities when the countdown hits zero, but it’s far too early to tell at this point in time. If you live in or near one of those cities, keep the countdown page or back here for updates within the next 5 days.

 

Update: So the image has completely resolved and all of the cities have been revealed. The original list posted was pretty close to what it finished up to be (the two switches were Detroit -> Denver and Indianapolis -> Minneapolis). We still don’t know what is going to be going on in those cities or exactly where things will be happening, but hopefully an update is on its way so those people who are contemplating taking off work will know if they should or not.

Institute for Human Continuity – Info Drops


Game: Institute for Human Continuity
Type: Info Drop
Location: Greater Metro Areas of Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, Washington DC
Date: October 26 (8am-noon) / Oct. 27 (3-6pm) and October 28 (8am – noon) / Oct. 29 (3-6pm)
Status: Concluded

Okay, here’s the deal. We have two more dead drops based upon the new book tour dates posted at the Farewell Atlantis Facebook page. We know the cities and the dates, but not the actual location. In order to get that, we need at least one person to check out one of the 800+ gas stations during the info drop periods, get the address, and then share it with the group.

It should be noted that Soren Ulfert has totally slacked off on alerting us to when the info drops are occurring. By my calculations, there should be an info drop today, but there has been no mention of it. Soren has also changed the time of the drops the last few times so that there is only a morning session (8a – 12p) instead of an afternoon session as well. Of course, since he hasn’t told us anything lately, this could have changed again. But I have to imagine someone somewhere is in a position where they could just swing by one of the locations without it being too far out of their way.

Update: Soren actually gave a blog update with the dates and times. He’s gone back to the original schedule of 8a-noon two days before the drop and 3-6pm one day before the drop. So to recap:

Information on Dallas dead drop:
October 26: 8a – 12p
October 27: 3p – 6p

Information on Philadelphia dead drop:
October 28: 8a – 12p
October 29: 3p – 6p

Anyone with access to one of the 800+ gas stations can retrieve this information.

So, if you live in one of the 15 metro areas listed above, find a gas station near you from the list, swing by today or tomorrow AND Wednesday or Thursday, grab the info and let me know about it. Easiest thing in the world, right?

Maddison Atkins – Dead Drop – Tucson, AZ


Game: Maddison Atkins
Type: Dead Drop
Location: Rattlesnake Bridge, Tucson, AZ
Date: dropped July 15, 2009
Status: Complete

A new postcard was received by Maddison Atkins that points to a dead drop at the Rattlesnake Bridge in Tucson, AZ.

In between Rattlesnakes mouth and plaque look to the ground pop the topicv [or topic v / top icv]

The current theory is that it’s this Rattlesnake Bridge located at E Broadway Blvd & Euclid Ave in Tucson. The players believe that the plaque in question is near the “head” of the snake.

So if you are in the Tucson area and feel like taking a trip out to what has to be one of the oddest pedestrian bridges out there, let the Maddison Atkins players know and become their hero.

Update: The dead drop has been retrieved by @ClearBoxMedia.
