    What is the connection between the Niantic and modern piracy (and even modern celestial navigation)?

    No idea.  I look forward to learning about this.


    Step ONE: where is the Niantic today and how did it get there? Hint: pyramid(s)!

    The hull and rudder are in the San Fransisco Maritime Museum.  Near the Transamerica Pyramid.


    Step TWO: what modern entity is named after the Niantic?

    Niantic, Inc.


    Step THREE: can you name the game?

    Pokemon GO.


    Step FOUR: can you cheat the game?

    No idea.


    Step FIVE: how can you defeat the cheater?

    No idea here either.

    Bob
