The game is GPS based and requires you to drive to various places to go to “portals”. These portals are located at all public places so far: libraries, post offices, fire departments, historical sites, etc.
Also, on a comical note…Ryan was playing late at night recently and he pulled into a nearby library to hack the portal. He drove through slowly and saw a Jeep in the parking lot with someone inside on a tablet and he thought they might be playing too. After he hacked the portal he left and started driving home when the Jeep whips out of the parking lot and gets right on his bumper…and flips on his cop lights, LOL. The cop pulls him over and asks what he was doing at the library after work and starts trying to find out if he has any drugs in the car LOL. I guess Ryan tried to explain the game to him but I don’t think it worked, haha. Eventually the cop just let him go but it is still pretty hysterical – note to self, don’t go to any of the places after dark if the sign says “open dawn to dusk”.
