In the weeks prior to each game participants will have access to a digital game-board. Printed game-boards are issued to registered teams on game-day and contain more comprehensive clue and image information. Not all teams will start and finish the game at the same time. You must participate in a team of 3 and each game fields up to 50 teams. We intentionally limit participation to enhance the fidelity of the Unlockthecity experience.
Teams score points when they post correct answers and images directly to our Facebook and tag us on Instagram. To win this game, teams must collect the most points in the least time. Official scores and times are tabulated by Urban Expeditions staff at the finish location. Winners are announced on our FB page within 24hours. Welcome to the human race!
