The game is an easy game to play, yet is immensely fun for all ages.
Certain special-marked spaces add either a bonus or a penalty to a player's move.
Any number of players can play, the more the better: it's much more fun not to play alone.
Each player needs a wherigo enabled GPS. Play is commenced by each player in turn, advancing by the throw of a 6-sided dice to space number 42, where the game ends.
The first player arriving at this spot gets the coordinates for the final ... as do the others.
Attention : bad loosers should refrain from playing this game !
Two words of warning :
- DO NOT CHEAT !!! - Saving the game while on the move might not work as expected
- When ask to wait: do so - you'll be told when you can move on.

A word about the park you are walking in:
The "Parc du Klosegrënnchen" (1999) was designed by the German landscape architect Peter Latz who has gained international recognition particularly for his work in converting the Thyssen-Meiderich colliery and blast furnace industrial site at Duisburg North in Germany to a landscaped park area. The upper section of the Parc du Klosegrënnchen consists of a sand dune landscape which was sculpted in 1997 with the excavated material resulting from the motorway bypass to the east of Luxembourg. Their low-nutrient, dry, exposed soil creates an extreme form of habitat where sand-loving grasses have grown, interspersed with sparsely wooded patches. The botanical collection of the Parc du Klosegrënnchen comprises over 200 species and varieties. Most numerous are the pines, junipers, willows, wild roses and broom. At the foot of the little valley, three spiral-formed drainage ponds create a contrast to the arid dunes. They collect surface water and rain water, coming notably from the eastern roundabout. The water is thus held on the Plateau and adds to the aesthetics of the green area. This interrelationship with a liquid element recurs in the "Coquille" (1997) sculpted from solid granite, the favourite material of sculptor Bertrand Ney who was born in France in 1955 and now lives and works in Luxembourg.
The Kirchberg Fund has set up "L’Arbre à rêves" by the Luxembourg architect Paul Majerus in the park. This sculpture, offering a sheltered bench space, symbolizes the vegetation aspect of the Kirchberg and serves as a rendezvous point for the botanical guided tours organized by the Musée national d’histoire naturelle on the Plateau. This sculpture simultaneously marks the Kirchberg Funds' 50th anniversary and the International Year of Forests celebrated in 2011 by the Administration de la nature et des forêts. The base is in textured concrete and the main structure is in Douglas fir. Before leaving the park, you can see street art by the graffiti artist Yves-Laurent Grosbusch.
