Your mission...

Cross the border

Walk (or drive or cycle) between one neighborhood and the next. When do you know that you’ve definitely moved from one to the other? 

Mission Information

How do you know? Produce a guide for people who are unfamiliar with the local area that will help them to ‘identify’ the local neighborhoods. 

Tips: Sometimes boundaries are obvious, and marked by something hard like a wall, at other times they are ‘soft’. Listen for changes in accent, look out for changes in shop type, feel for waves of emotion and sniff for shifts in smell. Remember that the boundary might be quite wide and it could take you some time to realize that you are somewhere ‘new’. 

Geography: All places are divided by borders or boundaries, but these are not always visible. Sometimes people are uncomfortable when they visit somewhere unfamiliar:  explorers need to overcome those fears. Geographers are interested in the relationships, differences and similarities between boundaries and places. 

Mission Risk: Medium

Medium. Keep your wits about you, anything could happen.

Move carefully, and take note of local rules. Remember that visitors to a place should be respectful and observant. Get permission and do this mission in a team (3 is a magic number).

Risky business

Doing missions on this website can be dangerous. Always get permission before exploring and make sure your plans are reasonably safe. A place that is safe one moment can become dodgy the next so keep your wits about you. We cannot take any responsibility for any injuries or harmful effects resulting from your actions. It's your job to survive your explorations intact.

To increase your chances of success complete our training and safety tips before starting. That way you are more likely to win points and keep your head on.
