In the beginning you go wrong on the road sign, but if you know where to go, you can continue playing there. Look and read the assignments carefully otherwise it will not work properly. It's fun and very good to play. And also nice, don't talk too loud because there were more travelers playing the game in the area.

Very nice to explore the city. I was stupid enough to buy 2 tickets. That is unnecessary. At one point I was asked if I wanted to take a picture of the trip. After I did this I couldn't get to the walk anymore. It is now working again. So I have to finish it again later.

This game was a lot of fun and a great way to explore the city and see cool new places. It's also really informative, because after finding and solving each clue you get some interesting facts about Rotterdam during WW2. Would recommend!

A great way to explore the city. The facts about the sights are also interesting. It's a shame that the story is about World War II - a story about Erasmus would also be interesting.

it was very fun and a cheap way to visit the places of interest in Rotterdam. Definitely recommend! You learnt a lot too on how Rotterdam was affected in WWII
