Does it matter how I sign in?
You may sign in via Facebook or Email. Just keep in mind that if you sign in with Facebook the first time, then with email the next time, we’ll think you are two different people. So go for consistency.
Do the games have set start times?
There are no set start times for the games. You can start whenever you like. We suggest you allow adequate time to complete location based challenges within daylight hours.
Can I stop the game and continue later or play more than one game at a time?
You may continue your games at any time by choosing the game you want to resume from the list of games and re-entering the password you were given when you registered. Then you can continue from your first unfinished challenge.
How are points earned?
Points are earned by completing unique challenges. Challenges may include completing GPS missions, answering trivia questions, or submitting photos or videos. Point tally and team ranking is available on the Leader Board.

Can I play Beyond The Walls offline?
No, Beyond The Walls is a location based experience and requires a data connection to play.
What do the different game formats mean?
Route-based games have a specific point where you need to start the game. Then when you complete the challenges in order, the game will take you around the area in a set route as you see exciting landmarks, discover information about the area that will amaze you, and solve some puzzles. Route-based game descriptions on the website have information about where the game will start and stop, the distance you will walk, and the approximate time the game will take to play. Finish the route and compare your score to others who have played the game!
Scavenger hunt games are more open in many ways. Though there are boundaries within which the game is meant to be played, which are noted in the game description on the website, there is no starting or stopping point. Teams can solve the challenges in any order as they search the entire area for items in the list. Each scavenger hunt game will also have some questions that will require the players to find a specific item in that area, in order to answer a question. Find as many of the items in the list as you can to earn points and climb the leaderboard!
Should we join the game "Solo" or as a "Team"?
Joining as a team means that you want to play as a team, but that more than one person from your team wants to create an account in the Beyond the Walls app and be able to see and answer the questions from their own phone. Note that one person will form the team, adding to the team the other(s) who want to play on the same team for this game. However, once one person has answered a question, no one else on the team will need to answer it.
Joining solo means that you can still play as a team, but you will be using one phone to do so. This is also how you will join if you are playing the game alone.
Make sure your phone is completely charged before starting. We also suggest that you lower your camera resolution before starting to save on data usage.
