Current Geek 12: “Alternate Reality Games”

Join Tom and I as we talk about a story about a few ARGs that involve small groups up to large corporate efforts. In one, men in suits and dark glasses appear suddenly in the rain. One of the men stood under an umbrella next to the car the woman and her friend had been riding in moments earlier and delivered a message. The woman’s sister was brought out of a second car that had pulled up mysteriously behind them.

She was told that if she couldn’t quickly prove that she was really who she said she was the bomb planted inside her sister would explode.And this was just the tip of the iceberg of a day spent driving all around the countryside, complete with vans, staple guns, cameramen in trees, threats, red phone booths, and a series of hidden clues. The whole thing was s et up by the woman’s boyfriend and ended in a marriage proposal.

We also hear a little reader story about doing whatever it takes to get the girl.
