Important information
Know before you go
• 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.

• It is a self-guided tour which means that there is no physical person waiting for you at the meeting point.

• The games are available in English, not in the local language.

It was a really unique and interactive way of seeing more of Amsterdam without the hoards of tourists, and is something you can do in your own time, whilst also exploring shops, bars, restaurants along the way, especially the ones recommended during the game. There was 1 riddle we really couldn't solve and will haunt me forever, but it was still a great experience that I would highly recommend. There were also some roadworks, which required a long walk around, but it wasn't a big deal.

Die Idee ist gut aber die Umsetzung hakt. So waren einige Rätsel schwer lösbar, weil die Gebäude renoviert wurde und die Teile, auf die es ankam verdeckt wurden.

Man kann auf unterhaltsame Weise Amsterdammer Seiten aufschlagen, die man noch nicht kennt. Man ist eng am täglichen Leben.
