The coolest mobile game out there right now, still closed beta, but rumours are that invites will be flowing a bit more freely in the next few days.

Anyone else play? Or even heard of it?

Has already spawned numerous real-life meetings, an ARG, an official ebook and got thousands of people wandering round capturing stuff...

The hype levels are pretty crazy (though to be fair, outside of Google+ and tech press I don't think many people are even aware of it yet)

The game itself it pretty ordinary but the strategy and communities around it are pretty amazing.

Whether its meeting 12 other agents for an adhoc lunchtime farming session, or plotting city-wide fields over several weeks - co-ordinating with hundreds of other agents over a wide area all whilst trying to keep the plans away from the enemy, or just having cross-faction beer nights.... and I believe the extra walking might have lost me a few pounds

I've just had a look around about this. Looks very interesting... I hope the (alleged) iOS version is released soon.

I have spare invites if anyone would like to see what the fuss is about

(I still spend far more time on this than any other game, mobile or otherwise. Have met lots of cool people and spent far too much time discussing strategy and planning big ops. Great fun!)

I've been playing this for a few months now. I'm on the enlightened team.
It's a pretty cool game but eats heavily on battery life.
I've just been invited to my first meet. No sure yet whether to go or not.

Don't expect a wide cross section of society (yet) but sure, meet up, the best ops come from teaming up.

Also both players and non-players should check out the weekly 'ingress report', an official news round up. Very swish.
