Palmer House Hotel

You must arrive with a guest and hand the desk clerk the concierge desk a note with “G.O. IV” written on it.

Update: The GameTeam added a note in the Go Forth forums Wednesday morning with a new set of instructions for this drop.

Institute for Human Continuity – Dead Drop – Chicago


Game: Institute for Human Continuity
Type: Dead drop
Location: 1648 W North Ave, Chicago (Brainstorm)
Date: October 9, 2009, 1-3pm
Status: Concluded

Please note this information is technically unconfirmed as I have not seen any reports from the last set of gas station info drops. But the dead drops seem to be following the Farewell Atlantis book signings and have been during the same time period, so it seems like a reasonable conclusion that this is the information for the next drop.

Frenzied Waters – Dead Drop – Part Three


Game: Frenzied Waters
Type: Dead Drop
Location: Miami, FL – Washington, DC – Detroit, MI – Chicago, IL – Dallas, TX – Philadelphia, PA – Newport Beach, CA – Atlanta, GA – New York City, NY – Boston, MA – San Francisco, CA
Date: Dropped July 20th
Status: Concluded

This is the last set of drops for the Frenzied Waters promotion. You can follow @FrenziedWaters on Twitter to keep track of the status of the drops. They’ve been pretty good at replying if you are on your way out to a drop and want to make sure it’s there. If this is like the previous sets of drops, the capsules will be in some sort of shop near the coordinates.

Thanks to @krystyn for transcribing and posting the coordinates and Google maps links to Unfiction. If she hadn’t posted those, this would post would have been much later as I am still trying to recover from ARGFest this weekend.

Frenzied Waters – Dead Drop


Game: Frenzied Waters
Type: Dead Drop
Location: Miami, FL – Washington, DC – Detroit, MI – Chicago, IL – Dallas, TX – Philadelphia, PA – Los Angeles, CA – Atlanta, GA – New York City, NY – Boston, MA – San Francisco, CA
Date: Dropped July 7th and July 13th
Status: Complete (first 2 drops)

Frenzied Waters, the new promotional game for Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, has released 11 news capsules into the wild, according to their website at FrenziedWaters.com and their Twitter account @FrenziedWaters. The capsules are believed to hold artifacts from different tragic events regarding sharks.

Update: It seems as if there will be a total of three different drops in these cities. One last week, one today and one next week (July 20th). So the earlier tweets from @FrenziedWaters saying that the capsules in certain cities have been found do not apply to the second group. Wish that had been made clearer. Also wish there was a mute button on the main page. And I still want to know what it wanted me to sign into Facebook for. I authorized it, but all I get is the loading twirl and nothing more.

Note: The Confirmed status on each of these drops is my best guess based upon the tweets from @FrenziedWaters and may or may not be accurate – especially when they start to overlap.

37° 45′ 34.42″, -122° 25′ 17.40″ — San Francisco, CA — Confirmed found

The hidden capsules should be similar to the one already pictured on Frenzied Water’s Flickr page. Other than that, there has been no specific information on what to expect at these coordinates. The capsules have been located inside businesses. At least two have been inside dive shops, but a third was found within a boutique shop, so they really could be at any business in the area, so make sure you ask around.

Intimation – GPS Mission – US, Canada, UK, Germany


Game: Intimation
Type: GPS Mission
Location: Philadelphia, PA / San Diego, CA / Hollywood, CA / Atlanta, GA / Berlin, Germany / Vancouver, BC / Portland, OR / Chicago, IL / Miami, FL / London, UK / Los Angeles, CA / Golden Gate Park, CA / Las Vegas, NV / Toronto, ON / St. Louis, MO
Date: Posted Apr 24, 2009
Status: Incomplete

New sets of GPS Missions have gone up for the Intimation game. So far, only the Central Park mission has been completely successful in gathering all the URLs needed to unlock new game content.

In order to complete GPS missions, you need a phone with an internal GPS device or an external GPS device (Bluetooth “GPS mouse”). Nokia Symbian or Windows Mobile PPC works best. Register at GPS Mobile, download the software onto your phone, and then head out to the mission sites.

Each checkpoint you arrive at reveals a message that has a web address (Checkpoint x/n . http://thewaytheirworldended.com/…’) The address is only shown once, so be ready to copy it down so you won’t forget. Visiting the website unlocks a piece for the game.

Update: Hollywood and Los Angeles missions completed by @krystyn. St. Louis completed by Nyst. London completed by DaiMudda.
