Full description
Dive into a (partly) fictional story of Utrecht in the 17th century. You follow Jan, a hard working family man on a typical day of work in 1622. What starts out as a normal day, soon takes a turn for the worst. Help Jan by finding out what's happening and who's responsible. He needs your help. On your route you'll get a peek in the history of Utrecht and discover sights and buildings that are either gone or repurposed. Utrecht has one of the most beautiful old city centers of europe. With this game the city gets an extra layer thanks to storytelling, gamification, augmented and virtual reality. It’s time to discover the city in a whole new way! You decide when to start and when to take a break. The adventure and flexibility makes this city game one of the best activities for during your stay in Utrecht.

Lovely way to walk through the city. We had 2x teenagers in our group & they enjoyed taking part. We saw lots of details that we wouldn’t have noticed on a normal city walk. I liked that it wasn’t as formal as a tour but we learned about the history for Utrecht through the game. Recommended! Will look for this kind of thing elsewhere!

This is an excellent activity for a family with bigger children (2 adults + boys 17 and 12 of age) and a great way to explore Utrecht. I have two small minuses, which is the reason why I am not on 5 stars. I paid for 4 participants, but it is unclear what I get for 4 when we actually only use two mobile devises/two teams. Also, the activity was a little long for us (or maybe we were slow :-)) But I recommend this to others

The game is fun. You also get to know the city away from the typical tourist routes and find out interesting details.
