Play a CITY GAME
Brno is my playground
How is the game played?
The game is a trail that will lead you through several locations and asks you questions along the way. You'll have a website opened on your phone, that will guide you through the questions and provide you with relevant information.
When can I play?
Any day, until June 2022.
Though if you play before October 2021, you might score enough points to get a valuable prize (500CZK vouchers for restaurants, bars, groceries, museums and other services in Brno). We'll be awarding them to the best teams at the end of October.
What time can I play?
There are some bonus questions that can be completed only if you play during working hours, but they are not necessary to finish the game.
Who can play?
Expats on their own, or in teams (we recommend 5 players in one team max). Your Czech friends can join you, but the game is designed primarily for expats.
TRAIL: across the city centre, 3.8km
TIME REQUIRED: 2 to 4 hours, but you can stop anytime, or finish another day
PRICE: The game is for free.
The game was a part of the LIVING IN BRNO City Days.
After awarding prizes to teams that have competed during this June 2021 event, we reopened the game (with some adjustments) for expats to play anytime.
What will I need:
- a fully charged phone
- mobile data in your phone
- map application in your phone (Google Maps or Mapy.cz)
- comfy shoes, some water
The game system will lead you on a trail with tasks. You score points for every task you complete. You can use hints if you need help. Some questions will be hard - do use your hints, even if they'll cost you points. It's better than guessing - wrong answers will cost you more. Googling is encouraged in this game!
Can I take my children?
The game is designed for adults, but kids can help with some questions and enjoy the walk with you. The trail is accessible with a stroller.
Will I win anything?
The contest for prizes took place in June 2021. However, we opened a summer edition: if you finish the game before October 2021 and score enough points, you might win a prize! We'll be awarding 500 CZK vouchers for various services in Brno (restaurants, bars, groceries, museum tickets, etc) to the best teams at the end of October.
Please, be fair!
There are ways to cheat the game, but we rely on your sportsmanship to play fairly to other contestants. Also, we reserve the right to eliminate teams with suspicious game behaviour.
The game is for free, but you can still give something back
You can play the game for free as it was funded by the City of Brno, through the Brno Expat Centre.
If you'd still like to give something back, please direct your contribution towards a cause we at the Expat Centre believe in, and donate any sum to ParaCENTRE Fenix:
