Wander the walls of York, weave through quaint cobbled streets and seek out historic sights on this mildly cryptic trail, ending in a friendly pub. An ideal introduction or a revitalising refresher for visitors and locals alike.
HiddenCity is a mobile game that transforms a city into a trail of clues. Bring your mobile phone, a map and be ready to discover your city. Each clue takes you to a hidden location, where you are challenged to look around to find the answer. Trails are an experience of around three hours with the goal being to complete all the clues and reach the final hidden cafe, pub or bar.
Ideal for groups of two to four people, HiddenCity is a social way to discover - or re-discover - your city. You can also play the game as a competitive event by entering multiple teams, contending against each other to be the fastest to complete a trail. After the event, you’ll be able to log on to the HiddenCity website and compare your scores.
Here’s a clue to get you warmed up: “South of Mickelgate, where royal roads meet at the riverside, seek the tavern of a male monarch's limbs, opposite a tree chopper. On the sign outside, how many swines stand next to the coat of arms?”
