Just in! We've received intel on the shadow organization calling themselves the "Secret Shoppers"! Each Secret Shopper has in their possession key pieces of high tech, handheld equipment in the war on boredom as well as keycards that unlock the cardholders' deepest desires.
As we uncover clues and information from our clandestine network, you will receive weekly updates to help you locate the Secret Shoppers. They are believed to have taken refuge in local neighborhoods posing as regular individuals. You can force them to reveal themselves at their home or as they visit local stores by tempting them with their greatest weakness: POPCORN!
