We are a community of Ingress players, the Resistance (blue team), from the DC, Maryland and Virginia area.
What is Ingress?
Ingress is an augmented reality game for Android and iPhone, designed to get you moving and exploring the world around you: capture “portals,” (anything from landmarks to businesses to points of interest) for your team; attack the other team’s portals; defend your team’s portals; and link together three portals to create a “Control Field.” Most of all, teamwork is important!
