In a few weeks, Geek Summer Camp, aka Cisco Live 2017, begins. So what do people do at Summer Camp, they play games! One new game this year is called the Campus Game.
The Campus Game is an interactive mobile game that will encourage you to explore the Cisco Campus and build relationships, as well as possibly win great prizes. In order to play this game, you will need to Cisco Live Event installed on your phone. The game utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons, so I am suspecting that the game will require much interaction and in the right location in order to score points.
I do not have any details on the gameplay, but I am suspecting it that this will be very much like another proximity based game – Ingress. It is sure to be fun, exciting, and educational.
There will be daily prizes to the top point-earning players as well as a Grand Prize that will be awarded on Thursday. You must be present to win your prize, so make sure you know when they will be awarded.
**** UPDATE MAY 31, 2017 @ 13:30 ****
I have received some updates on this game. It will be called Capture the Network and be a team-play based game. The rumor is that the team you will be on is based on the Super Hero that you identify with from the Find your Inner SuperHero questionnaire.
Now for the best news – the GRAND PRIZE announcement. The GRAND PRIZE for the contest will be a Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar signed by Bruno Mars!
See you in a few weeks!
