A: The puzzle answers will be revealed at the end of the game, so we ask that you refrain from playing the game more than once.
However, if everyone in your group has played the game before, you can challenge the game a second time!
Q: Q. How many tickets must we buy if we have multiple players?
A: As long as you are a group of 7 or below, you can participate with one group ticket.
Q: Can I post spoilers onto my blog or social media?
A: Spoilers are strictly prohibited for this game. Please DO NOT post anything about the game or upload puzzle photos online.
Q: Can I participate with someone who lives with me?
A: Yes, you can! You can choose to both play through 1 device (you will be counted as 1 player), or you can use separate devices (you will be counted as 2 players).
If you choose the latter, make sure that you are both is separate rooms to avoid any audio feedback.
Q: Is the ZOOM app free to use?
A: Yes, you can join our game with a free version of the ZOOM app!
Q: Can I play without turning on my video/camera?
A: Yes, the game is still playable even if you turn your camera off, as long as your app and internet connection meet the requirements and are working smoothly.
We do, however, recommend turning your video for smoother communication with your friends far away.
It has proven much more challenging to solve the puzzles together with the video turned off.
(It's also much more fun to see each other while playing) It is up to you!
