Pottermore: Leaked Memo Hints at Harry Potter MMOG

Rowling's hugely popular Harry Potter series. Little else is known at this point but the Pottermore site is live.

The memo, which was either leaked or accidentally sent to the paper by a public relations company, "suggests that [Pottermore.com] is a sophisticated online game that contains clues to prizes that are hidden in the real world. These are an unstated number of magic wands secreted in Britain and America, and possibly other countries." According to the Times UK, is is "not clear whether the treasure hunt is Pottermore itself, or merely a marketing drive for another product."
