Tron – Live Event – Chicago, Orlando, Paris

Game: Tron (Flynn Lives)
Type: Live Events
Location: Chicago, IL / Orlando, FL / Paris, France
Date: February 24, 2010
Status: Concluded

Well the countdown on Flynn Lives hit zero and allowed us to access a new page where they have a list of cities and a place for 66 Operatives to enter codes. Unfortunately, at Zero Hour, only 3 cities had information posted, so if you’re not in Chicago, Orlando or Paris, you’re going to have to keep checking back at the website and hope that you don’t miss the window for your city. Of course, you might be able to game the system a bit by checking to see where the best arcades are in your city and staking them out until the passwords are released.

Update: The Cities have been slowly checked off on the Zero Hour page. I have heard no information about if late comers will still be able to do anything there, so please be aware if you are traveling out of your way to check these sites out.

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.

Lego Pod – Dead Drop – Orlando, Florida (Pod #2)

Game: Lego Pod
Type: Dead Drop
Location: Southeastern US – Florida – Orlando
Date: Early December
Status: Concluded

The Bradford Rant Institute of Cosmic Kinesis has been tracking a strange set of seven signals originating from deep space. After decoding the first signal, they discovered that it gave them an ever narrowing set of coordinates that eventually led them to Legoland in Billund, Denmark where they discovered a Lego Pod manned by a alien pilot in stasis.

There are now six more Lego Pods that need to be recovered. The Bradford Rant Institute is “decoding” the signals one at a time, so we only have access to Pod 2′s location information at this point. Because the Lego Pod keep updating their coordinates to a more specific area as they get closer to Earth, right now the only thing we know is that it will be landing somewhere in the Southeastern United States.

Update: New set of map coordinates given on November 24, 2009 places the landing zone somewhere in Florida.

Update 2: The landing zone has been confirmed for Orlando, FL.


Map as of November 30, 2009

As it gets closer, the landing area will shrink until a final location is broadcast. Then it will be time for someone to go and collect the Lego Pod. The Bradford Rant Institute has helpfully provided a set of guidelines to help ensure a safe Lego Pod collection process.

  • Each signal transmits a set of map coordinates. The last set shows the exact location of the pod
  • We believe the pods are attracted to large amounts of LEGO® bricks and/or imagination
  • Once we decipher the last set of map coordinates we will try to inform persons at the location to secure the pod
  • If you arrive at a pod location, look for the contact person
  • When you find the contact person, tell them the number of the pod you seek, e.g. ‘Pod No.2′. Be sure to write down the Pod ID.
  • The first person to arrive at the pod location and tell the contact the correct pod number will receive the pod
  • It is still very important for others to make their way to the pod location and record the Pod ID
  • Take photos and video footage and send it to us here at Bradford Rant bradfordrant@gmail.com. Your data may help others in their search
  • REMEMBER: Always write down the Pod ID!

The Pod ID is very important as it unlocks data in the mainframe computer revealing more information about the origins of the pod.

So, if you’re in the Southeastern US, keep checking back here for updates on the Lego Pod’s location. And if you’re elsewhere in the world, you might want to keep track of updates to this game in case one the other 5 pods decides to land near you.
