Questions and answers
What is a Live Video Adventure?
The whole thing is a relatively complicated term for an online escape room experience that tries to come as close as possible to the escape variant "on site". For this we invite you to a Zoom conference with us so that you can control one of our agents live and together as a group via video chat. This poor pig is packed full of technology from head to toes and will follow your instructions. Of course, you can advise and coordinate in the team.
Which technical devices do I need for Showdown?
Each connection only requires a PC or laptop with sound input and output. However, we recommend a second screen for a better overview and a top experience. There are numerous possibilities:
- PC or laptop with a connected second screen
- PC or laptop plus additional laptop or tablet PC or laptop connected to the TV
- PC or laptop plus smartphone (we rather recommend different windows on the PC, or you really have eagle eyes and very little fingers)
This structure recommended by us is there so that you do not have to work in different tabs. You can leave the Zoom conference open on one screen and follow the action live and manage your found inventory on a second screen.
What do we have to prepare?
Get all your technical devices together early (!!!). You won't have time for that when the conference starts.
Download the Zoom App on the device of your choice (the bigger one if you're using two). You can test here, whether Sound and Video works: https://zoom.us/test.
Ask the other members of your team to prepare as well and come into the conference about 15 minutes early!
Do I need any technical knowledge?
We are gradually trying to develop instructions so that even our grandmother in Pusemuckel can do it. As long as you have the necessary hardware (computer or laptop with the possibility of video conferencing), we can get it up and running.
When do we need to be online?
Be online 15 minutes before the start of the game, so you can arrive in peace, solve any technical difficulties together and we can start on time.
We need more connections, is that possible?
Great, you recruited more agents! As long as you don't go over the maximum of 15 devices, we have no problem.
Just let our agents know at the beginning and pay the rest over PayPal. Easy and unbureaucratic.
Do I book the appointment only for my group?
Yes, you are all to yourself (apart from a few official ASF agents). We are also working on a "Leipziger Allerlei" version, where strangers can play together.
The slot I want is grey!
For this there are a few possibilities:
Is the desired date within the next 4 days, then our planning is done. In that case you have no choice but to contact us personally. Just ask per E-Mail or call us (0178/5613340). If your desired slot is still available, we will try to make a short-term booking possible!
If your desired date is not within 4 days, then someone else already booked it. Try another date, or if you have the chance, another mission here on site.
Our "Leichenschauschmaus", "Geldrausch" and "Trophäensammler" are also playable in English!
Can we play that from different countries?
Yes! Every connection can be wherever he or she wants, as long as there is Internet. So you can plan a game with the scattered family between Grevenbroich and Timbuktu, or a company event with your colleagues in Bangladesh whom you have never seen before. Anyone in the hospital needing a distraction? Here we are. There are so many possibilities...
Why is contact with you via webcam so important to us?
Our job was and is the contact with people. Our goal is that you have fun with us. Both outside of the pandemic in Neuwied and currently online.
However, we can only do our job in our Live Video Adventure Showdown satisfactorily if we keep an eye on you as a team. At Showdown we specifically use an online video conference as a stylistic device so that we can follow how your reaction to the game is and whether everything is okay with you. Especially online it is much more difficult to establish a personal bond with you and to interpret moods in the group. That is why we would like to see you so that we can respond specifically to you. For us, the interaction with you as a team is a warm-up and an icebreaker for the entire experience. If you leave out the webcam, we don't have a “contact person” and our communication leads to nowhere.
In addition, Showdown is overall a cooperative and interactive team game that lives from the fact that you see each other. To protect your privacy you can use neutralizing backgrounds or dress up. We look forward to seeing you!
How does the price come about?
Excellent question! In contrast to our on-site experiences, at least two employees are permanently in action for you. And that including preparation and follow-up for over 2 hours each. Then there is the heating so that we don't freeze to death, light so that you can see something, the fast internet connection so that you can see even more and so on and so forth. An avatar game is really tough in the background, believe us. But you can squeeze in front of a PC with as many people as you want and as the current Corona regulation allows.
We want to cancel or rebook!
By default a cancellation is not possible.
For every mission you can add a cancellation ticket for 20€. With the ticket cancellation or Rebooking are free of charge until 72 hours before the mission.
Within 72 hours until the mission:
- Cancellation to gift voucher possible (no cancellation fee)
- or cancellation fee in the amount of a 2 person mission
A cancellation must be received by us in writing. Best by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I still have questions…?!
