A little more about the
psychology of the game...

The game takes away players' real life worries and place them in a different world. As one of the most influential modern psychologists, Hungarian-born Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi puts it: "...flow is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity." He states further: "being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz or doing your favorite sport that gets youin the zone. Your whole being is involved, and you're using your skills to the utmost." Great artists, who would become so immersed in their work that they would forgot hunger, thirst and even need for sleep fascinated Mr. Csíkszentmihályi, the father of the theory. Our ultimate goal, in a nutshell, is to provide a game that helps you experience this fulfilling mental state.

Frequently asked questions

Please make sure that you arrive on time. The best is to arrive a few minutes earlier. Make sure you don’t arrive too early though, because we might be too busy to let you in, so there is no point in buzzing up 10-15 minutes before to your scheduled time. Make sure you check the exact location beforehand because it’s easy to get lost. If you’re late, you might not be able to play, as our booking schedule is very tight and one late finish will affect the entire schedule.
