Live quests are not held in San Francisco temporarily. We are looking for a new partner
Apparently, you came from distant countries. Do you want to open a Questoria franchise abroad? Conditions.
Do I have to read the lines?
Jeez, no! =)
You just have the backstory on how you landed in this situation. And it is up to you how the story will unfold. For example, you discover that you are a criminal fleeing from justice. What is your play? Bribe the policemen? Go for a plea deal? Set up anyone else? Or get rid of the evidence?
The decision is yours. There is no preset ending to the game. The resolution depends solely on the players’ strategies.
So do I have to «act out a role» then? I feel awkward!
Just a little bit! But if you’ve ever played short party games like «Mafia,» you’ve already had all the practice you need :)
You don’t have «to learn the role» by heart, and you don’t have to be an actor.
All you need to do is imagine your hero in this situation. What would a real sheriff do if he saw some robbers hold up the bank? Would he shoot them? — Then do it! Would he negotiate? — Then negotiate! Would he seek refuge? — Then go hide!
How do you distribute the roles? What if my role is dull?
Before the game starts, the host asks you to write down your role preferences: either you want an active role, a villainous one, or just more of an observational one.
Those who want a simpler role will get an observational one. Those who want to be more involved will get an active or villainous role.
That happens very rarely. And every role is worked out to let the player bring out their full potential. There’s no need to be limited by the character’s goals. You read: «steal the royal crown», but you think that it is way too simple for you — so you decide to become the king, and leave your opponents standing there in disbelief!
What if some players just don’t get it?
We minimize the chance of this happening by sorting out the roles from the start — into simple and compleх.
You can solve each task in the game in 3 different ways. So, if you don’t understand something, there will be other chances for you to get it.
If you don’t understand something, ask the host — he will give you a hint.
Is the game active? Or does everyone sit at a table?
Everyone sits at a table only during the Mini-Questories. In regular Questories the whole cafe room or your apartment is the game location. You can whisper with you allies in the corner, or trap your opponent into the next room and rob them one-on-one.
The super-big questorias with 40 or more players are held in larger premises or even outside.
HOW MANY PLAYERS DOES THE GAME REQUIRE?
Are you going to a open game in San Francisco?
Leave your request on the site, and we will gather other participants! You will quickly dive into a themed Questoria world and begin to communicate with other game players on behalf of your character.
Do you want to book a personalized holiday?
We have scenarios for any crowd. Mini Questories are designed for 6-10 people. The Questories are good for 8-25 people. There are special scenarios for larger parties to host 30-250 people.
Why are live quests and Questories different?
Live quest is a game, in which you become a story hero, like in a book or a movie. There’s a script, characters, costumes and a sophisticated storyline. Players will face one common goal, for instance, to find a treasure-trove, or find a murderer, or save the world from an imminent doomsday. And you will get a role in that story, and for several hours, you will turn into a totally different person trying to achieve as many personal goals as possible. You can talk, negotiate, weave plots and conspire, or even poison your worst enemy.
Questoria is a live quest type. This is a ready-made holiday with facilitators, costumes and props available. Just send us a request, and we will do the rest. Questoria is not tied to a certain venue, instead we can hold your game wherever you want: at your place, at a cafe, your office or outdoors.
