The price is unreasonably high , but the game is really fun. A lot of walking, logical brain burning riddles , and a lot breathtaking views! Just make sure there is no rain. No need of transport, just walk. Can stop for a coffee and photos by the way. Ideal for friends and those for whom it is not the first time in Prague and they looking for something different

We did the Play Across Prague game on a very hot Sunday (30'c and sunny)! But although we were miserably hot at times, we had a great time solving the puzzles and finding our way through the route, and the places the game led us to were absolutely amazing and some quite off the beaten track.
Definately recommend this activity!

We were in Prague for one week, and searched a opportunity to explore the city a way the kids have fun, too. At the time we stayed in Prague, Play Across Prague was the only offer for families, so we decide to try it if we are able to solve the online game to get it for half price. We need 2 days, because we startet when we arrived to Prague and only use the time between the other actions. And believe me it's not simple. Our Heads were smoking, but we did it. Then we booked the outside game. It's a lot of fun and a lot of way to walk, so you need good shoes. On each Station you need so solve a other Puzzle to find the way to the next Station. You can do this game in two ways: First way is try to get the fastest time, the second is to enjoy the way across Prague and enjoy the sight a bit. We did the second way. So we need near to 5 hours, with 2 times take a wrong way, but have a real great time and a lot to see.
Btw: We hoped to learn more about Prague by the puzzles, but they are all logical. Nonetheless it was a great fun, but we think it's could be more fun if you learn a bit more about Prague in this way.

When we booked the game we were excited to see some other interesting parts of Prague as promissed. We did similiar game in other city and liked it a lot.

However this game is horrible. I dont understand the good reviews. First of all the cost is insane, 1 300 CZK for nothing. You get no support, just a bunch of envelopes with printed papers. I understand someone had to think of the route but this is way to much for a suggested walking route...

The other let down is that you go AROUND and ABOVE anything interesting. Ok, the views are nice, but that is it. And since you are supposed to make best time, you hardly have time for quick photo and have to run.

The riddles are a joke, I will not spoiler them but I think they just googled "riddles" and used first 10. You learn nothing about Prague or history not even about the places you are in.

OK, to be fair, if you want to go for a 3-4 hour hike in Prague hills and dont care /already know all the interesting places, go ahead, but i would recommend to think of your own game instead. We will do that for sure for next time rather than wasting our time, energy and money here. Totally unsuitable for tourists.

It is so sad because the game COULD be amazing, just someone would have to make a bit more effort and not to invest 50 CZK to make 1300 CZK.

Dear Anna, We are sorry you didn’t like the game. I would just like to correct some details in your review, that might be confusing. Instructor is all the time at the phone, ready to help you or guide you in case you need it, that is sometimes more than 5 hours of his/her time. We also spend our time before the game itself to prepare the pack you receive at the start, which contains everything you need for the game (a map, a pen, and sets of envelopes with ciphers, hints and solutions). Track was carefully selected to guide you through interesting and not so “well known by tourists” places. Each stage takes you to place, that is at least architectonically important and most of the track offers views of Prague. Riddles are created to make your game flow, for someone could be hard – than you have hints and solutions you can use. For many the riddles might be easier. Additionally, the ciphers are mostly thematically linked to Prague. Also, you don’t need to hassle, you can always enjoy the view – as you can see from the player’s pictures here. Nobody is forcing you to finish the game in 5 hours limit. Michal

I have been living in England for last two years, so missing my country I decided to take few of my friends to my hometown Prague. Visiting my excoworkers I bumped into Michal, who asked me to solve a riddle made of national flags. As I have always been a fan of geography, this wasnt a problem for me, but it made me wanted more. He seemed to be happy to hear that and invited me and my friends for an outdoor game called Play across, where you have three envelopes for each of 10 stations (including your task, hint and solution), which leads you from the starting point all the way to the „finish line“. It took us about three hours to solve all ten tasks without getting any penalty time for opening hints, but we had such an amazing time! My friends finally got to taste proper czech beer and burcak on the way ( yeah, thats probably why three hours!) and see the most beautiful part of Prague. I would definitely recommend this game to all foreigners, who would like to travel and discover Prague in style and are competitive enough to take part in this challenge! In my opinion, It would also be a good programme for a lovely family afternoon.

Such a fun game by solving puzzles and walking through Prague. You will see views that are not on any tourist website and see places only the locals know. It's a game for friends or family with kids. On the way there are some steps and steep inclines but the views are worth it! Be sure you bring drinks and some food to have energy to get to the end :)

I found it to be a little dull. Clues were simplistic and all our groups got the same so we all ended up just following each other. It takes the fun out of it. The walk is fine but if you want to see Prague sites this is not the game for you to do that in. I had a nice walk but that is it.

We were in Prague in July 2015 looking for an interesting way to spend the day while my partner attended a conference. Play Across Prague was able to accommodate us for a last-minute reservation. It was a great experience for me and my 8- and 11-year-old children. We visited some sights that we wouldn't have discovered on our own, but the real joy was in solving the puzzles together with the children.

I would recommend this to anyone who will be in Prague for five days or more and is looking to get away from the city center a bit and explore.

The positive of the game is that you will walk across some very nice panoramatic views of Prague and lot of park areas which is nice, but tends to be very boring and monotonous after couple of hours walking. The game is too long both in kilometers and time spent, clues are not really original e.g. tracking numbers on lamps etc. and the game lacks story line and attractions (like really some more worth sightseeing). For regular travelers this is not really funny way to spend time in Prague and for gamers this game is just not worth it. I would call it somehow organized walk across less known places in Prague which is nice but really only for this it is VERY RIDICULOUSLY COSTLY!!!

Dear gingerjeanie, We are sorry you and Anna didn’t like the game. Game track is approx. 5km long, this information is at our website and also at the starting propositions you receive after registration. Riddles are mostly thematically crafted to Prague location and are originally made, including the lamp post tracking. You can always quit the game and enjoy every place that the game takes you around or just enjoy the views. Best regards, Michal
