How do I join a team?

They can do this by using their main account to “Add Player” to activate your personal username. Alternatively, once your team captain has signed up, use the captain’s “team ID number” to create your account linked to your team.

Do me and my team share a log in?

I played previously, can I keep my points?

Don’t worry if you played the previous version, your points are not lost. Simply use the same email which you used last time around and your points will be added on to your account within 36 hours.

Why has the game changed from using fobs to an app?

Unfortunately, the original boxes which players tapped with fobs were vandalised. To ensure this doesn’t happen again we have decided to use posters with QR codes and an app.
