Μια ετικέτα QR του CityScrabble

In CityScrabble each player (or team) tries to locate locations or objects in space and connect them with keys (small sentences). In order to do that, she has to go near them (to trigger a gps proximity sensor) or scan a QR tag. When a location is identified, it can be connected with any key. Points are only awarded if the connection between key and the object is meaningful.

It is a competitive mutliplayer game. It can be played by competing individuals or by teams of 2-3 players. It should last a little more than 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area.
