Ingress Mission Day on 17th October

The official global event of the "real life game" was organized on 16 different cities with participation of over 3500 agents. Glad to say, Kathmandu was also one of them with 12 missions of which 6 has to be completed to get a mission badge. The missions which will also be available in future were live few hours ahead with NTB logo at the bottom. #MissionDay was aimed to provide new high quality Missions in collaboration with local tourism boards for everyone to discover the city together.

The event on Kathmandu was organized on Basantapur area and started at around 11:30 AM and the team started hacking portals. It was real interesting to play the game and also exploring some places which I had not visited before. Most of us completed 6 missions and had a good time on a nearby restaurant with lunch and talks.

It was nice to be a member of a good community with awesome tech people. I am very thankful Samit bro for helping me to understand stuffs while playing/completing the missions.

I couldn't stay quite as it was very interesting and also a way to explorer new places. Visit to Boudhanath stupa area and Pashupati on the next day helped to get to level 3 and currently I'm near to next level. My first attack to The Enlightened was on Chabahil Stupa and second on Pashupati but couldn't get that completed.

About Ingress:
Its is an augmented-reality GPS based game with google maps based interface created by Niantic Labs which has a complex science fiction. The game takes place in the real world so you have to get out of the house to play. It could be a good way to get rid of distraction from engagement in the real world because of social media and video games.

The players need to visit landmarks which are called portals that could be sculptures, public parks, and famous attractions, local heritages. There are two sides: The Resistance(Blue) and The Enlightened(Green) both of which tend to ‘capture’ the portals for their side.

The Resistance seek to battle the forces struggling to protect humanity and preserve freedom whereas The Enlightened who seek to evolve mankind to a higher level with actions to uplift humanity with physical presence in the real world. You can choose either side only once and start rocking with in-game badges and explore portals you’ve never visited before.
