Google Plus

Occasionally some passcodes show up in google+ that were not present in the puzzles of the corkboard. This page is meant to keep track of them
ATTENTION - This is meant for passcodes only, not invites as these can be obtained from several ways and the puzzles might not be official


Brandon Badger

Brandon Badger occasionally releases passcodes. Wether he is aware of them or if they are shaper induced. Normally they seem to be powercube exclusives.

Seems to know the answer to puzzles before anyone else and takes great pleasure in giving cryptic hints to people wanting a solve, it's profile can be found here


The rumkin puzzle

On the 31th of January this post, challenged players to choose a number.

To pick the code that will be your fate
Choose a number from one to eight

Later the number decided was 3

Seems your fate you have decided
Your decisions you have provided
Let the race begin soon
Under a number 3 moon

After that the puzzle was presented on this post.

Don’t try to skip it, or take any substitute
Don’t try to bifid it, that is not very astute
Don’t rotate or lean on any column
No cryptogram will make this solemn
Today there is no bacon on your screen
But here is a code that is new to the scene
9 major steps will have to be taken
Hope that does not leave you shaken
The cat’s breed is well known
The number you chose, the tone
Try and get it before you go numb
Or just get drunk with this bottle of RUM

Rabbit Ransom

On the 26th of october a user by the name of Red posted a ransom demanding that the players would leak the last passcode hinted by Rekees Hturt or she would kill the White Rabbit, after she had leaked all the others.
This was accompanied of a transcript of a conversation between the Rabbit and the cat.

Secrets

This post has a blurred view of the members of a community that seems to work for sharing passcodes privately.

Hidden Info
watchP3Y9dlZhbDBGYnlrSE0= is seen in the post.
With Base64 after the watch you get watch?v=vVal0FbykHM . This part of a a youtube link

In it there are some lines encoded with ROT13

A mind is such a wasteful thing to lose
But sometimes insanity is the only way
When the truth can only hurt you
Ashes! Ashes!
We all fall down

On the description it is written
Had a wife 98
Had another 121
to read and spell, 121

This together with the annotations spread in the video gives the nursery rhyme Peter Pumpkin Eater (numbers after each line are the time they show in the video with the : removed, or the lines in the description)

Peter, Peter 56
pumpkin eater, 117
Had a wife 98
but couldn't keep her; 57
He put her 115
in a pumpkin shell 112
And there he 111
kept her very well. 111

peter,peter pumpkin eater, 107
Had another 121
and didn't love her; 115
Peter learned 57
to read and spell,121
And then he 54
loved her very well 115

Using the numbers 56 117 98 57 115 112 111 111 107 121 115 57 121 54 115 and converting from decimal to ASCII we get 8ub9spookys9y6s

Ingress

Resharing event (Ingress report ep 4)

On the 18 of April there was a chain event originating from the post about the 4th episode of Ingress Report.
The idea behind it was the following

Like a link-chain, we'd like to explore the idea of a reshare-chain. We'll select one of the public reshares of this post, then post a Power Cube passcode as a comment on that reshare at 2:30PM PDT. If there are enough reshares of that post, we'll share another. And so on.

On the first post we saw the passcode 5VG3AURAU285Z posted by Brandon Badger

After that you would have to followthe ripples to get the others.

Resharing Event (Patches + Chrome Stores)

On the 19 of April there was a chain event originating from the post made by Ingress.
The idea behind it was the following

Share photos of your #Ingress patches in front of your local Chrome Hub. Power Cube passcodes will be posted on Agents' featured public photos, or reshare-chains of their posts. Purchase your patches at Chrome Hubs in SF, PDX, Chicago, and NY. Custom sewing on Chrome gear is free and done in-house.


You can follow the ripples on the original post but in the future it seems like you have to follow the ripples of other users photos
