How it works

There are virtual checkpoints placed across all of Singapore. Open the app to find the checkpoint nearest you, and then go to that location to earn points.

Singapore is divided into 4 'Districts' - Central, West, North, and East. Collect all of the checkpoints in your District to get to 100% completion.

Each checkpoint can be collected once a day. The first collection will count for 500 points, and each time the same checkpoint is collected on following days it will be worth 200 points.

60-minute District Challenges may also be found at key locations during specific times.Take on this timed challenge to experience Discovery Quiz Questions, Time Trials, and more. Your best score from each Challenge will count towards the leaderboard. Stay tuned for when these are available.

Keep exploring the city to collect more checkpoints and score more points.
