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.

Centian Games – Flash Mob – Austin, TX

Game: Centian Games
Type: Flash Mob
Location: Highland Mall, Austin, TX
Date: February 20, 2pm CST
Status: Incomplete

Now that the Unofficial ARG Winter Break is over, we can start getting back into the swing of live events for some of the bigger games.

Centian Games is having an Outdoor Games Flash Mob Challenge to help promote their new game. It’s being held Saturday, February 20th at 2pm CST at the Highland Mall in downtown Austin, TX.

Players will meet the games master, Jeremy Koester, at an entrance on the west side of Highland mall. In order for players to be included in play, you must bring a shirt or some outerwear that states “Centian Sent Me”.

Players should come in comfortable athletic type clothing and shoes. These games will be played in the mall, so caution and care for others will be paramount.

Rules will be explained promptly at game start time stated above. Players may always join mid game by contacting a games master.

If you aren’t in the Austin area, you can still earn points in the game by creating your own Flash Mob at your local mall and filming it. Be sure to check the website for the rules if you are setting up your own flash mob.
