All three games involve learning new and surprising things about the city, exploring its picturesque cobbles, ancient remains and jaw-dropping buildings, and solving a wide range of puzzles designed to cater to every type of group. And that’s not all! They can also be played at whatever time and whatever pace suits you best.
No more rushing to make the start of your tour; no more waiting on a guide to move onto the next area; no more being forced to move on yourself when you are still engrossed in something fascinating. Secret City games are run entirely through mobile phones, putting the power back in your hands. You can race against the clock to solve the mysteries in record time, topping the leaderboard, or you can take things more slowly, soaking up all of the amazing things you see, it is completely up to you.
Also up to you is whether you make use of the hand-picked refreshment breaks along the way. Their games all feature a selection of some of York’s best pubs and cafes at strategically placed locations along the way. These serve as optional rest-stops for those who fancy putting their feet up and relaxing with a pint of beer, a glass of wine or a nice coffee for a few moments. Or for longer. The clock is paused for the entire duration of these breaks, meaning even the most competitive players can enjoy them at their leisure.
