📱 One team, multiple devices
Don't be limited by physical maps and puzzle pieces — players can use separate devices to play the game at the same time.
🔗 Synchronised in real-time
When a player of the same team completes a task, it is shown as completed for everyone.
💬 In-app team chat
Chat among team members via the in-app chat room — no need to switch between game and messaging apps.
📍 Location-based tasks
Create "physical stations" across the map where players have to go before being able to see a task.
The stations can be configured to be hidden from the map too.
✨ Multiple task types
PlayTours support a variety of answer types: text, integers, numbers, QR/barcodes, location and check-in.
You can also accept images and videos and have them verified manually by a facilitator.
📈 Infinitely extensible
Embed anything you can find online — Google documents, 360 virtual walks, crossword & jigsaw puzzles, etc.
⚡ No installs required
