WHEN AND WHERE

No, Sato Code is completely outdoor so there is no Covid restriction.

The current cities are listed under CHOOSE A TRAIL, but we’re growing constantly! To get all the latest news and see where we’re going next, follow us on our social media.

Yes, absolutely – no reservations, no hassle! Just get your tickets under CHOOSE A TRAIL and reach the starting location shown in the Sato Code app.

HOW

Sato Code is a multiplayer game, so minimum 2 people. If you are more than 4 you’ll play in multiple teams. We highly recommend a staggered start (5-10 minutes).

Right after buying your tickets you’ll receive an email with your ticket code. Type it in the Sato Code app, reach the starting point displayed in the app and start the game. Remember to charge your battery beforehand.

Yes, the app will display different infos for different players. So all the participants need to have a phone and download the Sato Code app in order to play. Internet is needed too – open a hotspot if someone does not have connection. A whole trail needs only about 2 or 3MB of data.

Everything 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.

If you want to beat the record you can, but definitely don’t need to. You can use any form of transportation including an e-scooter but, really, for the best experience, just walk!

You can type your ticket code in the Sato Code app as soon as you receive it per e-mail, or you can wait to be at the starting location. Just don’t remove the app from the phone before playing, if you have already entered your code.

You need at least Android version 7.0 or iOS 11.0.

TICKETS

Yes, so that everybody can unlock the trail on their phone (children under 10 do not need tickets).

You will get your ticket code per e-mail right after buying your tickets under CHOOSE A TRAIL. Type it in the Sato Code app to unlock the trail when you are at the starting location.

Sato Code is great for kids to learn logic and soft skills. But the puzzles can be overwhelming, so we recommend to play as a family. If the kids already own a phone, the experience will be even better for them. From 14-16 years they can also play alone.

Kids under 10 come along for free.

WHAT IF

No worries, you can get some hints in the app.

We try to make it possible for everyone, but not all stations are easy to reach so make sure at least one person in your group can move freely.
