    • The rules of the game are easy: each riddle is made up of directions and a question. To answer the question, you can try as many answers as you like. If you’re stuck, you can ask for a hint, there’s one per riddle. However, asking for a hint adds 10 minutes ‘penalty time’ to your overall completion time. If you’re lost, you can skip a riddle, this adds 20 minutes ‘penalty time’. It is recommended that you always ask for a hint before skipping a riddle, to ensure you’re in the right place to continue your adventure.
    • This is a self-guided tour which means that there is no guide waiting for you at the meeting point.
    • The games are only available in English, not in the local language.

    We were already annoyed with question 2. For question 3 with 5 including 3 children, gave up. Questions not clear and confusing. Does not trigger. Shame about the money and the disillusion

    Bad game, unclear clues that make you "lost" !!!

    The discovery tour is not well set up. The directions are too vague, which means you will be lost in an unknown city. A map in which an area is marked where a clue is located would help to solve the riddles on the one hand but (more importantly) discover the nice places of the city on the other. We have stopped earlier and have further discovered Rotterdam "on good luck". We have received no value for money and "the makers" have been able to earn the money easily and quickly. We have not been in contact with someone who will guide you / explain you beforehand. Very unfortunate because this way of discovering a city seemed to us (family with 2 teenagers) very nice. We have been in contact with someone by telephone. Furthermore, no one from the organization seen / spoken while it was clearly stated that we had to report to the meeting point (CS).
