Dear Niantic,

I am not a professional event promoter but I have done it before. One of the first things in event promotion is telling your attendees what they are attending.

Before I invest time and resources into attending an event, what exactly is a lexicon hexathalon? Do I need to bring a dish to share? Is there a dress code? Will there be free parking?

    A hexathlon is an event in which different sub-events take place throughout a specific playbox (area of or an entire city) and the winners are judged based on what is done during the event. Most, if not all, sub-events involve in-game facets of Ingress. Past hexathlons have involved placing resonators, distance walked, etc. during the event. The 'Lexicon' part refers to a unique name given to the events, related to the current story-side of Ingress (seen in The Investigation forum threads) and does not really have much significance in itself, unless you are involved in the story (Nemesis and the Tessellation).

  • Totally agree

  • Lexicon is the name of the font that the event is for, like Umbra or Avenir.
