Know Before You Go
A team may have as many people as you like. However, this adventure is typically best with no more than 6 people on each team. Large groups can break up into many teams and compete for the best point score and time. Each team needs to purchase a Quest with a unique email address and password.
All information you need to start your Quest will be sent to your smartphone, which will be your guide (you will not meet with an actual person).
You may purchase your Quest days, weeks, or months before your adventure.
It is suggested that you bring water, snacks, money, a city map, a calculator, a pencil and paper and, of course, a fully charged smartphone.
