Bristol was awesome!

After a day of fierce battling with the Resistance, the Enlightened emerged victorious, winning 227.76 to 147.26.

Brilliant ground agents.  Brilliant bikes. Brilliant recharge support.  Brilliant eyes in the sky.  Brilliant PoCs and organising team.  

It was a blast!

Congratulations to our fellow agents in Nuremberg as well as agents around the world for bringing home a resounding Enlightened win on Day 2 of Darsana Prime.

Want a bit more of that?  Head over to Abaddon Amsterdam for 11th May: https://enlightened.rocks/amsterdam

Let’s bring home another one!

He’s here!


Barney is in Bristol and has visited Niantic registration.  Will you catch up with him this weekend for that all important selfie?

And if you can’t make it to Bristol, don’t forget you can help with the global capture challenge that runs from 4am to 8pm tomorrow.  As a faction, we need to capture as many unique portals as possible across the globe.

It’s time to move…

How many knuts in a sickle?

… 29 of course!

And that’s how many layers were put together yesterday evening between Stoke on Trent, Derby and Walsall.  A beautifully symmetrical 4-layer set of homogeneous fields underneath a multi-layered onion field.

Magnificent Seven!

Seven UK cities hosted First Saturdays yesterday – Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds, London, Milton Keynes and Shrewsbury.

Still yet to find Steve McQueen in the photos.  Maybe will have better luck searching for Yul Brynner!

The date for your calendars for the next First Saturdays is 7th April.
