Re: Game Hint #2

Just throwing this out there, but did anyone do a search on teams that are in this area. Like in that order there might be a message with their names together. Ya know, something along the line of Sim-Chickens. That sorta thing. but when we put them together, it might make something that makes sense.

Re: Game Hint #2

You know, this thread proves that the GDC is pure evil! Everyone has a different interpretation or crazy idea to solve it, yet it'll make perfect sense once the game is revealed.

Once again, the GDC is pure evil. (Dave, Aidan, and Bill get the "pure evil genius" rating which is slightly worse.)

I like this a lot.

Take your machine out of the shop - air
stop by and get connected - fire
drive by and make a pickup - water
then head to the field - earth

And consider we have a fish for game hint 1...that could have something to do with water.

And also consider what we call things that are on the field: game elements. We could be using 4 game elements are are completely different.

Re: Game Hint #2

I am not very good at these clues, but I was looking at the maps of these places on Google maps and found a link to clue #2 by Eric. It was created yesterday before the clue was sent.

I searched

the field evergreen, dover de

on Google Maps.

If you try to get driving directions it yields GPS coordinates for 4 sites.


Colorado in Paramount @33.894789,-118.16147

Central in Phoenix @33.292916,-112.083155

Minnetonka in Minnetonka @44.93915,-93.47994

Evergreen in Dover @39.164141,-75.673828

Hope this is of some help to you,
