STEP ONE: REGISTER YOUR DETAILS
Register your name, mobile number, and details at TheGlobalGame.net. You can do that here - Register Account.
The only requirement for your mission is that your mobile device can access the Internet to send and receive messages. You will typically send around 25 messages in order to complete each mission.
In basic terms, each game is a simple Treasure Hunt or Clue Chase.
1. We provide you with a starting Point, a starting clue and a course to travel around and a finishing point. Depending on the elapsed time that you spend on the course, we allocate points which will give you increasing Status on the Leaderboards and qualify you for more challenging games.
2. You can play as a team, a family group, or groups playing against your friends or other groups at the same time. Every player or group of player's mission is unique (the system has an inbuilt Randomiser, which means you won't all get the same clues.
3. NOTE: Most of our games are LOCATION GAMES, which means they can only be answered near each clue position!
STEP TWO: FIND A MISSION
Find a mission near you. There's a mission in many capital cities and some regional centres. Location Missions can take up to four hours to complete and will finish anywhere within a ten kilometre radius of the starting point. Most Level 1 missions are around 4 - 5km.
You don't need a car to complete the mission. In fact, you're better off on foot.
Level 2, online and higher missions have a whole new universe of complexity, but these rules apply to all level 1 games (this message refers).
STEP THREE: PRINT OUT YOUR MISSION DETAILS
Print out the mission page for the game you're on. It'll contain extra information that you might need to help you complete the mission.
STEP FOUR: GO TO THE MISSION STARTING POINT
Travel to the mission's starting point. This is a real mission in real time. You must actually be standing in the starting point before you START your game.
Take water, sun-screen and MAKE SURE YOUR MOBILE DEVICE IS FULLY CHARGED!
Again, there are higher level games where this won't apply, but for all games at level 1, YOU MUST BE AT THE SPECIFIED STARTING POINT FOR THE GAME, BEFORE YOU SEND THE START MESSAGE!
STEP FIVE: START YOUR MISSION
You're at the Stating Point. Press the START button on the device! Within moments of sending the START message you will receive the first clue for your mission.
You'll notice when you get your clues, there are some numbers in brackets after the clue. In Crossword style, we're showing you how many words and letters are in the answer. Make sure you have the correct number of WORDS and the correct number of LETTERS or NUMBERS in each word.
For example, (3,5,3) is three words, with 3 letters, 5 letters and 3 letters in that order. The answer here would be The Black Cat.
There are around 25 clues to solve in a treasure hunt that will find you searching your city - and your mind - for the answers.
