So over the weekend we only put out one code. We didn’t receive an email until this morning alerting us that the code had been used although once we reviewed the logs it had been shown to 6 people! So congrats to whoever got to it first!
With that being said, we took the code down and are pushing out another one as this post is being made. We did make some update to the code however and following soon after this post will be our first encoded clue that will greatly increase your chances of receiving a code (from 1 in 2,000 to 1 in 10). You just have to figure out how to decode our clue and use it as part of the randomization contest.
Why are we doing this? Well we expected more codes to be used over the weekend for one, and for two Ingress and the Niantic project uses a lot of coded clues to help determine passcodes that will help you play the game and give you bonuses. We are encoding our clue the same way (and trying to make it easy) so that you can start playing along for a chance to really play along.
