Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PUBLIC AND A PRIVATE CHALLENGE?
In a public challenge, anyone can register a team to play during that time, so you may be playing against other people you don’t know. In a private challenge (minimum 6 people) it’s just your group playing at that time.
Can ANYONE play?
Of course! Adults, kids, locals, tourists, pets - everyone is welcome! Just make sure you’re able to walk comfortably for the 2 hour game session.
How many people can play AT ONE TIME?
A lot! We have had up to 150 people playing the game. Got a big group? Contact us and let's make it happen!
WE CAN’T PLAY DURING THE SATURDAY MORNING PUBLIC CHALLENGE- CAN WE BOOK ANOTHER TIME?
We normally require a minimum of 6 people to run a private challenge. If you are 2-5 people and are willing to pay a bit extra, please contact us and we’ll see what we can do for you.
CAN WE ADD EXTRA PEOPLE TO A PRIVATE CHALLENGE BOOKING?
Yes, you can always make a booking for the approximate number and then email us to add extra people to the booking closer to the date.
What should I bring?
Unless you are playing one of our bike-based challenges, you don't need to bring anything. Just energy and your thinking caps. We’ll provide the rest- like your Polaroid camera, questions and a map.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Please wear weather-appropriate clothing suitable for being outdoors, and make sure you have comfortable shoes.
Where do we MEET TO START/FINISH?
Stockholm: Svartmangatan 18 in Gamla Stan, in the courtyard by the fountain.
Gothenburg: Drottningtorget 10 (next to Gothenburg Central Station), outside the entrance to the Clarion Hotel Post.
Amsterdam: Oudebrugsteeg 15, Amsterdam Central, on the bridge by Damrak.
Copenhagen: Rådhuspladsen, Copenhagen, in front of the Copenhagen City Hall.
Sydney: First Fleet Park, George Street, The Rocks (next to Circular Quay train station).
WHAT LANGUAGE IS THE CHALLENGE IN?
You can always play in English, and in Sweden and Denmark the challenges are also available in Swedish and Danish. When you book you can select the language you prefer.
Do I need to know anything about THE CITY TO PLAY?
Not at all. If you’re new to the city our introductory challenges are perfect for visitors and tourists. But if you do know the city, test your knowledge with our intermediate and difficult level challenges, designed for locals.
HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE THERE PER TEAM?
The team sizes are normally 4 but can be anywhere between 2 and 6 people.
IS THE WHOLE GAME PLAYED OUTSIDE?
Yes- our challenges are all outdoors.
What happens if it rains?
We play on! It’s smart to have a waterproof jacket and umbrella with you if it looks like it might rain.
What happens if i want to play after dark?
No problem, we have specially designed challenges which are perfect for when the sun goes down. Just select the “After Dark” option in the booking form or ask us about that option when you enquire. Please note that the “After Dark” option is not yet available in Sydney.
WHAT do we win?
Glory. Satisfaction. A greater knowledge of the city and a real feeling of achievement! And a small surprise...
CAN WE KEEP OUR POLAROIDS?
Of course. Your photos are yours to take away as souvenirs of your game, so be sure to take nice ones!
