What is District?
District brings cities to life with different series of checkpoints and challenges spread across many neighborhoods in the city. The aim of the game is to collect as many points, badges and rewards as possible within the time limit. There's no set route or distance, so plan and create your own strategy based on your strengths. We're sure that you will go further than you ever thought possible.
How do I get started?
Download the District app from the App Store or from Google Play, register an account and you’re ready to go.

Are there different types of checkpoints, and how do i collect these?
Points are awarded for successfully navigating to a checkpoint, which your app will detect via GPS technology. You will receive points for reaching the checkpoint. Additional points are up for grabs at specific checkpoints when you complete the task, these are split into 3 categories:

1. Timetrial - A checkpoint where explorers must get from point A to point B in the shortest time possible. The faster the Time Trial is completed, the more points are earned.when you conquer a challenge.

2. Discovery - A checkpoint where explorers must correctly answer a question, the answer of which can be found in the immediate vicinity. Can take the form of a multiple choice quiz or typing in a number or word to be found.

3. Scan - A checkpoint where explorers must find and scan a part of the existing city infrastructure (a graffiti wall, city sign, shop front) to collect the points.

Make sure you preview the District, decide which checkpoints you want to collect, and play to your strengths.
