I have a new time waster: Ingress

Months ago a new game started: Ingress. There is a story behind it but not that I care about it.

In short: there are two teams: green (Enlightenment) and blue (Resistance) trying to take over the world by “hacking portals”. Sure, someone could say that there are many MMORPG games on a market already and they would be right. But there are few things which made me play Ingress.

  1. To play you have to get your ass moved as game takes place in so-called “real world”. You know — streets with people, cars etc.
  2. Gives possibility to learn many more or less interesting places around.
  3. Another opportunity to meet other people and have something common to talk about.

For me it started 4 weeks ago when I had three spare hours during Sunday evening. Joined the Enlightenment and hacked some portals in Warsaw, made few links and ended with a bit above 10k AP which gave me 2nd level. Next evening (in Szczecin) I met some local players and they helped me to get to 3rd one.

Then time went… I convinced a friend to play and helped him to do L3 in one evening :D And during last weekend I was in Warsaw again and made 7th level (with help from local people who told me where to go to get some AP in quick and easy way).

But what I like most is a need to grab a bike (or take a walk) and go to city centre to spend some time in active way ;)
