Frequently asked questions
Here you will find the frequently asked questions about our city games.
The game does not work. What might be the reason for this?
Have you downloaded the Loquiz app? If you have completed the steps (login code/team name/participants), then the game will only start once you have pressed the start button. Did you do this? Then walk a bit and zoom out on your screen to find yourself (the blue dot) on the map.
What should I do if my phone’s battery dies during the game?
First of all, we recommend that you play the game on the phone of the team member that has the longest battery life. This is often the most recent and most expensive phone. If your battery runs low during the game, you can continue playing on another phone. In this case, go through the following steps:
– Leave the game on the phone that is about to turn off.
– Log in on the new phone with your personal login details.
– Close the window with the game info.
– Press start.
– Do not re-enter your team name and team members but press ‘or resume with existing team’.
– Continue the city game with the new phone.
Note: The time you spend switching to a new phone will be deducted from your playing time! The time you see in the app after switching over is therefore no longer correct…
I use an iPhone, but the pins on the map do not work. What should I do?
Chances are that you are using an outdated version of iOS or the Loquiz app. Please update both to the most recent version. Is it still not working? It is best to use another device from your team. Follow the steps below to continue on another device.
– Leave the game on the phone that you started with.
– Log on to the other phone with your personal login details.
– Close the window with the game info.
– Press start.
– Do not re-enter your team name and team members but press: ‘or resume with existing team’.
– Continue the city game with the other smartphone.

FAQ about the City Games

When you start a City Game, the clock starts ticking right away. You can not stop the clock from ticking but you can choose to take a break.
Can I also open the game at another location?
Yes. The only thing to be aware of is that the time will begin running when you press the start button. That is why it is very important that you start your City Game at the location indicated in the email.

Want to play a City Game with a big group FAQ’s
I want to play the game with, for example, 20 people. How many teams should I make?
You buy 1 ticket per group or team. We recommend creating teams of 2-5 people. This gets everyone involved in the game. With 20 people, you make four or more teams.
I bought 2 or more tickets. How does this work?
You will receive 2 emails with login details for each team. So one person logs in per team, and the game is played on that person’s device. You can start 5 minutes apart, so that you do not get to the assignment locations with all the teams at the same time.
If we play the game with 3 teams, how do we know who won?
All teams are tracked online. Afterwards, you can see on the Wall of Fame which team has performed best. Here, you can also immediately see if you have managed to earn a spot among the fastest teams of all time!
I would like guidance with the City Game. Is this possible?
Yes. We can also provide the game including instructor(s). However, this is a customized service and there are other costs involved. This is possible from 40 people. Contact us for a customised proposal.
I am playing with several teams. Do we all start at the same time?
Yes. The route you take with your team is up to you. So you don’t need to follow other teams.
Is there a competition element?
Certainly! The goal is to score more points than the other teams. After finishing the game you can compare your scores and see who has the best score.
