The following games are available in a downloadable version: City Adventure, Dr. Crypto's Escape Game, Sherlock, Sherlock Kids, Shoot Out, Trap the Bachelor, The Wedding Planner and The Hangover. For more information about the content of the game, please check the relevant game page.

Where can I play?

Take a look at our cities page to find out where Geoteam is active. On the game page you can find out where each game can be played. Is your favourite city or location not on the list? Let us know and maybe we can create a new game area for you.

How long can I play?

The duration of the game varies from one city game to another. This ranges from 1h30 to 3h. Check the game page to know the duration of the game you have selected.

When can I play the city game?

Since you don't have an appointment with a game master, you are free to choose when you would like to play the game. This way you can easily start the game a little earlier or later than planned. Is it raining cats and dogs? Just move your city adventure to another moment. Your game code remains valid for 6 months!

Can I play with an Android device? Which requirements must be met?

Yes. All MyCitygame games are available for Android devices, both smartphone and tablet.

Requirements for your smartphone or tablet:

  • Minimum Android 2.3 operating system
  • a SIM card that allows 3G or 4G data connection (mobile internet via your mobile phone operator)
  • A GPS connection
  • Google Play Services has been installed (on your device by default)
Can I play with an iOS device? Which requirements must be met?

Yes, all MyCitygame games are available for iOS devices, both iPhone and iPad, except for two games.

Requirements for your iPhone or iPad:

  • Minimum iOS 5 operating system
  • a SIM card that allows 3G or 4G data connection (mobile internet via your mobile phone operator)
  • A GPS connection

Pay attention: City Adventure and Trap the Bachelor are not available for iOS at the moment. We are currently developing these.

Can I play with a Windows Phone?

No. The MyCitygame games are only available for devices with Android and iOS operating systems.

Does every player need to have a smartphone?

No. You will play the game in one or more teams. You only need 1 smartphone or tablet per team.

How much does a MyCitygame game code cost?

A standard code costs €65. This code allows you to play with 3 teams (devices) at the same time. You will have to pay €20 extra for each additional team (device).

With how many friends can I play the MyCitygame games?

This is completely up to you! When purchasing your game gode, you can decide how many teams (devices) you would like to play the game with. This number cannot be increased later. If you play with fewer devices at the moment itself, that's no problem. Would you like to play as 1 team or do you prefer to make it more competitive by playing against each other in different teams? It's all possible! You are also free to determine the size of the teams. You can make them as big or as small as you want. This also helps you to keep your budget under control.

What would we recommend?
Don't make your teams too big, so that everyone is still sufficiently involved in the game. But don't make them too small either. Our city games are ideal as a team activity in which communication and collaboration are recommended. Moreover, it can be quite busy in the city. An extra pair of eyes on traffic or passers-by is no superfluous luxury! We believe that 3 to 4 people per team is perfect!

How can I purchase a game code?

Very easy! On the game page you can indicate in the purchasing box in which city you would like to play the relevant game, as well as in which language and on how many devices. Think about this carefully beforehand, because after the final purchase the game code is generated and these game aspects can no longer be adjusted. Paying for a game code can be done in the shopping basket.

Can I play with more than 3 devices?

Would you like some more competition into the game and create more teams? That is possible! In that case, you will pay €20 extra per additional team (device). When purchasing your game code, you can easily indicate with how many devices you would like to play.

Exception: Trap the Bachelor will have to be played in 1 group!

Do I have to pay to download the application of the game?

No. Downloading the application is free of charge. You only pay for the code you need to play the game with.

What do you do during MyCitygame?

MyCitygame is our DIY formula. When selecting MyCitygame you choose to play the game independently on your own smartphone(s). This means that we are not present during the game. Is this not what you prefer? Then choose for an accompanied city game. Check for availabilities via the contact form.

What is the difference between MyCitygame and an accompanied city game?

An accompanied game needs to be booked some time in advance. After all, you make an appointment with a game master in the city where you want to play. He or she brings along all the devices, as well as the instruction sheets, explains the game and remains available for follow-up and any questions during the game. The advantages of an accompanied game? You don't have to do anything yourself! The price of a game with a game master is obviously a bit higher.

MyCitygame is the DIY formula of our city games. This means that you can play the city game without a game master and with your own devices. Flexibility is the advantage with this formula! You can play at a time that suits you and your friends best. Since you don't have an appointment with a game master, you can easily start the game a little earlier or later than planned. Is it raining cats and dogs? Just move your city adventure to a another moment. After all, the code remains valid for 6 months.

Can I buy a code on the day I would like to play the game?

Your personal game code will be created as soon as your payment is completed, meaning you can basically buy your game code on the day itself. However, we recommend that you do this a few hours or a few days in advance. This way you can install the app at home, review the game instructions and get ready to start the game.

How can I pay for a game code?

You can pay online with bancontact for the purchase of a game code.

Can I pay afterwards?

No. Your personal game code will be created as soon as your payment is completed via our website.

Can I get a quote from MyCitygame?

No. You will have to pay a fixed amount for a MyCitygame game code. This is not based on the number of participants, but on the number of devices you will play with. The rates can be found on the game pages.

Can I get an invoice for a MyCitygame game code?

No. MyCitygame is our do-it-yourself formula for private individuals. The rates can be found on our website and they are VAT included. We cannot issue an invoice.

How long will my purchased code remain valid?

You can play the game whenever you want. The game code you have purchased will remain valid for 6 months after the date of purchase. You can therefore play the game immediately after your purchase or several weeks/months later.

I have changed my mind and I don't want to play the game any more. Can I get my money back?

No. Your code remains valid for 6 months, so if you don't want to play the game right now, you can certainly play it at a later time. Or why not give it to someone as a gift?

How do I prepare myself for the city game?

It is always handy to appoint a game leader in the group. We will provide you with all the instructions to install and play the game. The game leader should read this document before playing the game. This way you know what to watch out for before the start of the game and he/she can explain the rules to the other players. This will guarantee that everything will run smoothly when you want to play the game.

I cannot find the app. What should I do?

The Google Play Store and Apple Store feature a huge number of applications. Don't just go looking for our games, but use the direct download link that you can find in the game instruction sheet.

I have installed the app, but I can't play the game. What should I do?

You need a game code to log in. Only after we have received your payment, we will prepare a game for you and send you your personal code. Enter the same game code on all the devices that you will use to play the game with. Once you are logged in, you will see the game area as well as the positions of the different teams. Is everybody ready for the game? Then get cracking!

What if the battery of my device is dead? Can I continue to play on another device in that case?

No. We can't emphasize enough that your batteries should be charged at the start of the game. If you have a somewhat older device and if you have the impression that your battery dies quite quickly, then play it safe and take an extra power bank with you.

What can I do if something goes wrong during the game?

If something goes wrong, please contact us: +32 475 27 64 30.

Which practical issues should I pay attention to when playing a city game?

It is very important is that you ensure that your batteries are fully charged.

It is also best to turn off your wifi connection. If you don't, your smartphone will continuously try to connect to wifi hotspots during the game, so you will regularly play without a network connection.

Inform the other players that they should wear a comfortable outfit and shoes, so that they can easily walk around in the city. Depending on the competitiveness of the participants, the walking or running distance can sometimes increase.

Avoid large-scale events in the city. You may not feel comfortable playing a city game during a mass event. For example, it may happen that you don't get to a certain location, because it has been closed. It may also happen that the mobile network is overloaded, which may cause the data connection to drop. In this case, it is best to choose a different date or city to play the game.

Last, but not least: Clearly state that the players should pay attention to traffic! We hope that you will be fully absorbed in the game of course, but we think that safety is just a little bit more important!
