What's an Anomaly?
An anomaly is a big cross-faction event, where players play Ingress at each other as hard as possible to maintain control of a few dozen specially-selected portals over the course of a day. Points are awarded to each faction based on control of these portals at precise times, and the points are added for all the Anomaly locations around the world.
At the end of the Anomaly series, either Enlightened or Resistance is declared the winner, and it's worked into the Ingress storyline somehow. Basically you can think of it like the Ingress World Cup! But mostly on the day it is about capturing portals as insistently as possible.
Edinburgh is an old, beautiful city with many extraordinary landmarks surrounded by portals. The Anomaly clusters will cover some of the most interesting parts of town!
The city is also convenient to get around — compact, cyclist-friendly, and well serviced by public transport. There are hundreds of wee bars and even tale of some places that don't serve fine ales. This is a town with haggis and drams. What more could you want?
Sounds great! How do I get involved?

Ingress is an augmented reality game played around the globe by over a million people worldwide, using a free app available for Android and iOS. Two factions — the Resistance (blue) and the Enlightened (green) — battle constantly for control of portals spread around real life locations. It's somewhere between Capture The Flag, geocaching, and a Space Invaders themed Google Map.
