Full description

Embark on an innovative, messenger-based outdoor quiz that you can play on your smartphone with your friends and family during a self-guided walk of Rostock. Experience a multimedia adventure in the heart of the city and get to know this Hanseatic city in a different way.

Discover the traces of the heyday of the Hanseatic League that still characterizes Rostock's city center with its well-preserved historical buildings and monuments. Learn how beer became an export hit and how Rostock established itself as one of the most important economic and scientific centers in the Baltic Sea region.

See how the noble Hanseatic attitude still lives on today, as does the landlord of the "Zum Greifen" pub, who, as part of the quiz, wants to leave his famous pub to a worthy successor. The point of the game is for you to gain his trust and sign the contract to the pub. Walk from the cozy and rustic old town through to the lively promenades in the city center and to the student suburb of Kröpeliner Tor, while you prove your Hanseatic attitude to this pub landlord to finally fulfil your dream of owning your own pub in Rostock.

Choose to pause the game at will, for a refreshing beer or coffee in between quiz questions, and continue at your leisure.

Idee toll -Umsetzung hat in diversen Punkten noch Luft nach oben: Startcode ist schwer zu finden. Wäre schön, wenn der deutlicher gekennzeichnet wäre, am besten gleich in der Bestätigungsmail…. Der erste Teil der Tour war toll.. leider hat es nachgelassen. Die Fragestellungen wurden immer uneindeutiger… angeblich sollte man am Ende 11 Buchstaben haben für das Lösungswort. Es wurden aber weniger genannt.. und die Buchstaben passten überhaupt nicht zum Lösungswort, das dann übrigens auch gar nicht 11 Buchstaben hatte.. Dies muss dringend überarbeitet werden. Solche Fehler und Unstimmigkeiten nehmen dem User den Spaß. Meine bisherigen Erfahrungen, zB St Pauli, waren da besser. Noch ein kleiner Verbesserungstipp: Anzahl der noch offenen Fragen anzeigen.. wenn so langsam die Lust nachlässt oder die persönliche Zeit knapp wird, kann ich mir ein Bild machen, ob ich kurz vor Ende bin und noch durchhalte oder ob noch viel von der Tour fehlt und ich deshalb lieber abbreche.

Sehr empfehlenswert. Informativ, allerdings für meinen Geschmack etwas zu lange.
