Here are the answer to all your Frequently Asked Questions
About the games
Coddy offers treasure hunts, geolocalized Urban Escape Games that, with the help of your smartphone, will take you on a tour of a city while you play.
Routes with puzzles related either to the scenario itself or to the city. For the latter, you will have to look all around you to answer the questions. A way to (re)discover a city while playing and having fun!
With the help of the mobile application, in teams of up to 6 players, solve all kinds of puzzles and complete several missions in a given time. Choose the game of your choice, a city and arrange with your team for the date that suits you. Download the application to your smartphones (at least 1 smartphone per team) and get together to start the adventure!
Coddy also offers Escape Games to be played at home. These Escape Games for adults but also for children can be played with the mobile application.
However, we sometimes will make 'events', for those games, you can use it at any time of the day, on the day of the event only!
To play a game on Coddy, you will need
- at least one smartphone with a full battery (1 per team of 6 players minimum, unless otherwise stated)
- an internet connection
- the Coddy app
- your team code (booked online and received by mail)
And most importantly: choose smart enough teammates so you can aim for a competitive score !
We advise you to take an external battery with you if your phone discharges easily.
(Once your team is over, your score will be posted on our website - if it's worth it - and we invite you to team up again and start another game if you liked it!)
However, if you feel particularly talented and inspired, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to discuss creating games together.
We're also always eager to discuss adapting our existing games to fit your team building wishes !
For team building events, don't hesitate to contact us at the following email address: email@example.com.
You will have to choose a team captain who'll be in charge of submitting the team's answers. The team captain role can be switched to someone else at any given time during the game.
There is no booking of dates for our games (except for events): that is to say that once you buy your ticket, it is valid for 365 days. If you are no longer free next Saturday as planned, simply arrange with your team members to reschedule your outing 😉.
It is also possible to exchange your ticket for another city, in case the one you chose at the start is no longer convenient for you. Don't hesitate to invent a crazy reason for your exchange in order to make our team laugh :)
Contact us by email at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you with your request.
Who can participate?
Everybody! Although the games, in their difficulty and content, were originally designed for adults (young, a little less young and definitely not young at all), it is perfectly possible to play them with your children. If you are considering one of our games with your children, please note that some of the games *could* use more than familiar language.
We do not recommend an incredible physical condition to participate, but be aware that it will sometimes take a number of kilometres to get to the end point (the routes are logically accessible to PRMs, but we cannot guarantee the road conditions of the cities in which our games take place).
More seriously, each team always decides for itself the way to go between the missions and it will never be necessary to take stairs to access a mission.
Note, however, that most of our courses are several kilometers long (the distance is always displayed on the games page). We therefore advise against disabled people who would not be equipped with a wheelchair.
If applicable, we will always indicate on the game page if it presents specific problems for people with reduced mobility.
It's best to come by public transport, bicycle, kick scooter, or even on foot if you can. (Think planet!)
A health pass is not required to play with Coddy. You play outdoors, only with your team members, using your personal smartphone.
There are no interaction with other teams. Our games are played independently, only with your team members and your smartphone. Your smartphone is your guide: follow the instructions on the Coddy app, you will only need it to play.
You are free to play your Escape Game on the day and at the time of your choice, so competing teams will not come into contact with you.
