How to get started
Via your mobile phone, you are in full control of the Escape-tour “Assist the Authorities”, and you will continuously be informed of the location of the task at hand on your screen. You solve the tasks and enter the results on your phone.
All communication will go through the phones, thus there is no direct contact to the headquarters of EscapeTour.dk.
You get the best possible experience by appointing one of the team members as Game Master. The role of the Game Master will be entering the team’s answers and asking for hints if necessary. All other team members may open the hyperlink on their own phone. This makes it easier for you to solve the tasks together!
To every task you are able to ask for up to four hints but beware! The fourth and final hint will give you the answer to the task. Only request hints when needed and when you agree on it. If you have not tried escape-ture before, you should expect that you will need hints to complete the tasks – this is completely normal.
In case you are more than one group going on this tour and wish to compete with each other you will have to book a tour for every group wanting to participate.
Points: In this tour the number of requested hints, and the number of correct answers will affect the points awarded to the team.
Maximum points per task is 1,000.
For every wrong answer you lose 100 points and for every hint you request you will be charged 250 points.
The time you spend does not affect your point score, however, it is registered and will be shown on the result page.
Results: Your team’s result will be shown on https://EscapeTour.dk/results
