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.

• 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 had a lot of fun puzzle-solving.

The puzzles were a good mix and sometimes tricky. Sometimes we had some translation problems. We would have wished as additional function the possibility to get further information about the sights or streets, so a kind of voluntary Infobutton. In addition, we would have liked to take a break at any point and felt the time given us something under pressure. Overall, we have discovered much surprising and got to know beautiful corners of Cologne.

やり方に慣れるのに何問かかかったけど、難しさのレベルがちょうど良い感じで、慣れてきたら楽しめましたです 晴れた温かい日にやるのをおすすめします。寒い日、暑い日にやるのはしんどいかも
