This will depend whether the game is publicly available (“Show in app” has been checked by game admin) and which start method the game admin has chosen. The player can find the game via the app home page (list or map) or they can enter the invitation code to access a specific game.

If “Start from App” has been chosen:

The players enter the Invitation Code in the app, download the game, join and enter their player name. The player will see a screen with a list of all other players. Once all players have joined, the game master will start the game and the player will be shown the first challenge location and directions to start.

If “Start from CMS” has been chosen and the game is already running:

The players enter the Invitation Code in the app or find the game in the homepage, download the game, join and enter their player name. The game begins and the player will be shown the first challenge location and directions to start once they have entered their player name.
