Tampere Ingress Meet Up, 3 Sep 2016

by Jennifer Brozek 9. September 2016 08:54

One of the things I really wanted to do while I was in Finland was play Ingress—unique captures and hacks FTW! Ingress is a wonderful game to help you find neat sights and hidden gems in a new city. Plus, you get to meet awesome people.

Tracon helped us set up a Project Isthmus sponsored Ingress meet up in Kalevankangas Cemetery. I also got in touch with some of the locals (Agents Cthulthist and pimpelipom) to spread the word to the local Ingress players who weren’t at Tracon. 27 local players showed up and a good time was had by all.

The Husband (Agent Morgyan) set up a crossword puzzle with a passphrase that the agents had to solve and then find me somewhere in the cemetery—I was hiding with Morgyan running around capturing portals—to give me the correct passphrase. The first two RES and ENL players to show got prizes of very rare (1st place) and rare (2nd place) load out cards. Everyone who played received a Project Isthmus bio card. Everyone who fully completed the puzzle received a limited edition, uncut Project Isthmus bio card.

Agents who joined us: AdrianGajewsky, Arisep, Cthulthist, eimink, Ekyttis*, Fixied, FoxingDemon, Golug*, HeterTheMoth, Jalermo, JherekCarnelian, Jovee, Kaustinen2*, Limlaith*, Marjaananen, Meepu, Molter, MrJ007K4, Mryy, Pantone268c, Penguinone, pimpelipom, Stahi, vieru2002,  Xitay, z3r0x, ZeroScripter… and, of course, GaanEden (me) and Morgyan.

* = Won one of the rare/very rare load out cards.

The RES came out in force and were generous to a fault with their swag. I can’t wait to show my locals the awesomeness we were given for sponsoring this meet up. It was a good day.

After the meet up in Kalevankangas Cemetery, we headed to a pub to drink and celebrate where I had the best pear cider I’ve ever had, Somersby pear cider. I managed to get Flint on Hangouts to give everyone a wave and they were pretty excited about that. Me, too.

The best thing, though, was after the meet up, I was told that it gave the two factions a chance to talk and they are going to start up a First Saturday meet up. I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. As a final bit of joy for everyone who came out to meet us, some agents may show up in a forthcoming Project Isthmus story in passing. :)
