How do I get started?
Download Sato Code from the App Store or Google play and reach the starting point. Once you’re there, start the game.
How much does it cost?
The Pyramid Trail Challenge costs 8 CHF. Sound steep to you? Tell us why and send us a counter proposal!
Can I play alone?
You can try, but we recommend playing in a tribe of 3-4 people. More brainpower, more fun. Can’t find anyone to code break with? Come to a Sato Code Meetup and assemble your team.
What are the rules?
There only constraint is time! Once you start, you have got 60 minutes, no pausing and no stopping until you reach the end. Everything else is up to you, so feel free to experiment, we won’t limit your creativity. Want to bring along a DIY R2-D2 and C3PO? We’re not stopping you.
Do I need to run?
You can use any form of transportation including an e-scooter but, really, for the best experience, just walk!
Does everyone need a smartphone?
Yeah, better. More than two people should not share a phone, unless yours  has a 15" screen.

What happens if I don’t make it in 60 minutes? 
Sorry, the time limit is 60 minutes, we mean it. If you run out of time, you can complain to the Sato Tribe Happiness Chief or simply try again.
What happens if I get stuck?
No worries, we’ll send you along some hints.
What if I am physically impaired?
Not all clues are easy to reach so make sure at least one person in your group can move freely and quickly.
