Guide To Using PlayTours’ Answer Validation System
Have a task that requires real-time human validation?
PlayTours allows tasks with different types of pre-defined answers — text, numbers, integers, location check-in, QR/barcode.
But what if a task does not have a pre-defined answer?
A task that tells players to take a photo in front of a monument.
A task that requires a team to think of a poem with specific rhyming patterns.
These will require a game facilitator to validate, and if applicable, give different points for different answers (e.g. more smiles, more points!). PlayTours makes this easy to do.
Step 1: Create a task and set the type to either “judged-text” or “judged-image”. It is to allow players to submit text or an image respectively.
Step 2: Create a game session using the “Add session” button.
