Citydash 

Citydash is a fast game of speed, stealth, and strategy - a high-energy treasure hunt. Up to 100 players dash between checkpoints inside a small area of the city, trying to increase their score while keeping out of sight of patrolling guards. there is information about the guard role, and the MC (Master of Ceremonies) role below.

Role

Responsibilities

  • Patrolling an area of streets, keeping an eye out for players and texting in their ID numbers if you see them.

  • Making it fun for players by creating close calls, outwitting them and occasionally letting them outwit you.

  • Setting checkpoints in your zone, and retrieving those checkpoints at the end of the game.

  • Talking to members of the public if necessary to let them know what we’re doing

  • Assisting the stage manager as necessary

  • Using a good knowledge of the game to answer player queries
