It was all about hoax. We invented story that Univirsity has no 12 faculties as they claimed but they have also 13th one - hidden, making research on paranormal activity. Sounds unbelivable? Yes it is! But when Universtity chancellor gives official statement where he denies existance of such faculty and librarian asked about 13th faculty threats cameraman with calling police some can believe in unbelivable...
Fake poster prepared for the game. Design is copied from posters promoting faculties of University - this is poster promoting XIII faculty with disciplines: travel in time, question about sense of life, missing link in Darwin's theory, Bermuda Traingle and so on.

"XIII Wydział" was a game prepared for 65 years anniversary of Universtity in Lodz. Game took place in may be we started campaign in march. We engaged group of crazy activists that wanted to tell the truth - that University has secret faculty and is making bad things there. They've been spreading leaflets around the city, they also interrupted several lectures and Educational Fair. On some places they were taken by mysterious guys in black suits.
 
One of the locations - biological faculty with a bit of "X-Files" climate.
We also sent secret message to Promotion Centre of University - made out of difrent letters cut from newspapers - just like in a movie. And Office answered in an awesome way - they called criminalistic scientific circle to check finger prints. It was such fun for us and for University that we started to make such actions spontenously which make them even better.
 
Beginning of the game in XIX century Biederman (Lodz factory owner) palace.
Game was organized in several University spots - dark rooms, secret corridors, basements. Players were searching for the trails of Marcin Dąbrowski - student who was investigating XIII faculty case and dissapeared. Players met crazy scientists and completed some challenges in order to got tips from them. We ended game in spectacular way in hall of University Senate. It was hard to get out of story that evening.
 
Location - mysterious shaman in one of student houses
