If you would like to play with more than 6 people, you will need to buy an extra ticket and split your group into two teams.
Is the event appropriate for children?
Whilst our games are suitable for most children, we advise parental discretion when bringing children to our events.
Children can attend and play for free, but our games are not designed to be played solely by children.
Whilst there is no gruesome or gory content, there may be descriptions of violence and themes which are unsuitable for younger children.
Where can I find upcoming events?
You can search for your nearest event at the following link: cluedupp.com/pages/events-schedule
Is this game accessible?
Whilst we try to ensure all of our locations in the game are fully accessible, the game occurs on real city streets with teams determining their own routes to reach the locations. As such, we cannot guarantee your route will be accessible.
Is this game suitable for someone who is pregnant?
Whilst there is no significant strenuous activity in our games, you can expect to spend a couple of hours standing and walking.
Please take this into consideration when deciding whether to attend an event.
Are CluedUpp Games covid-19 safe?
The safety of our event goers is at the forefront of our plans, and we have taken the following measures to ensure COVID-19 safety across our events.
Our events take place entirely outdoors in the open air, and all characters are virtual, meaning the only people you come into contact with are your teammates.
The number of tickets available for each event is limited, reducing the number of people at any one event.
Teams will have different starting locations so as to avoid congestion.
The game is completely self guided, so you can avoid other teams by taking an individual route - and we have extended the playing time window so teams will be participating at different times during the day.
If you are experiencing Coronavirus symptoms, please do not attempt to play - we will happily exchange your ticket for a game at a later date.
Can I bring my dog to an event?
Dogs are more than welcome at our events as the whole game takes place outside. Please check your local regulations for dog restrictions in your area.
What time does the game start and finish?
You can start playing any time from 9am. It is up to you when you start. You can expect the mystery to take 2-3 hours to solve.
Whilst there isn't a specific end time for the game, you will have to be finished by 5pm in order to be considered for any of the prize categories.
You do not need to book a start time, simply start the app and play at your own convenience.
How long does a game typically take to complete?
On average, it takes 2-3 hours to fully complete the game, although this can vary depending on how leisurely or competitively you play, and whether you choose to have breaks.

Can we swap team leaders during the game?
Yes, absolutely. You can do this from the navigation menu whilst you're playing the game.
Can we pause the game?
Yes. You can pause the game at any time from the navigation menu within the app.
Please just be sure to re-start your game from the same location to avoid a time penalty.
I am the team leader. How do my other team members join the game?
Team members join the game by scanning the QR code given to them by the team leader.
All team members will have to create an account and select 'Supporter' before scanning the QR code presented to them by their team leader.
We seem to be having GPS issues, can you help?
GPS can be affected by a number of things. We use the highest possible grade GPS technology available, however GPS can be affected by the accuracy of the chip within your device and other environmental factors out of our control.
If your GPS issue persists, you are still able to unlock the location points but may incur a small time penalty.
My voucher code doesn't seem to be working, can you help me sign in?
This is normally due to the code having been copied incorrectly. Please check that you have copied and pasted the code from our pre-game briefing email correctly. This will help to avoid any potential errors with the code.
Please may particular attention to any special characters such as hyphens or other punctuation marks that may be contained within your code.
If your issue persists please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further help.
Where do I post pictures of my team and enter the prize categories?
Please post all pictures of your team onto the designated Facebook Events Page for your event. You can find details of the event page within you pre-game instructions email.
Can I post my experience online?
Yes, absolutely, we love seeing your photos and videos on social media. Please refrain from revealing the end answer or any of the answers to the riddles, as this will result in disqualification from the competition element and it will spoil the experience for others who may participate in the future.
Can I play more than 1 game of the same theme?
Whilst you can play more than 1 game in the same theme (e.g. CSI Manchester and CSI Birmingham), please be aware that the overall story and solution to the games will be the same. We regularly release new and exciting themes, and we recommend waiting for a new theme to play rather than playing the same theme twice.
