Frequently asked questions

On this page, you will find the answers to the most frequently asked questions. If your question is asked less frequently and you can't find the answer below, then please do not hesitate to contact us by using the support portal.

How many points can I earn by visiting a place?

You can use the search function to look up a place before you venture there to collect your points. By clicking on the marker on the map or expanding the search results, you'll find the statistics on that place. This includes the amount of points you can earn by visiting that place and which sex is its current conqueror.

Why do my same sex friends earn different amounts of points while they visit the same place?

Numerous factors influence the amount of points one can earn by visiting a venue. To name a few:

First time bonus: subsequent visits have diminishing returns. So the first visit will usually (but not always) earn you more points than subsequent visits to the same place. So step out of your comfort zone and check out a completely different place every once in a while;

Perfect timing bonus: the time of your visit can also influence the points to be earned. For instance: when you visit a place that has a happy hour from 4:00 to 6:00 (2 happy hours = double the fun), and you check in at 5:00, you might earn more points;

Minority bonus: the gender minority receives an extra bonus when visiting a place.

Why do I earn more points by visiting places conquered by the opposite sex?

You receive an extra reward for doing something that is harder to do. If a place is conquered by the other sex, for you it might be like walking into the lion's den. Apart from that, the reward is an incentive to go and see what kinds of places attract the opposite sex.

Can I use more than one smartphone/computer?

Yes you can use different devices for all your personalities if you want, but be aware that by default, settings and points you've earned are device bound.

If you want to use your settings and points on other devices, you can protect your account with an email address and password. If your account is protected, then you can load your settings and points to other devices as well.

Why do my settings reset each time I visit the website?

Your settings are stored in a place called localStorage. This is a specially reserved, securely isolated space by your web browser on your device.

If you've disabled localStorage in your web browser, then the website is unable to store your information. This means that we can't retrieve the information either.

In order to play this game you need to have your webbrowser localStorage enabled.

Why is my location on the map not reflecting my exact location?

Many smartphones use different techniques to determine their location. They can use GPS, Assisted GPS, Wi-Fi Positioning System, Cell-site Multilateration, a hybrid positioning system, etc.

Usually, Assisted GPS and GPS are the most accurate, but sometimes you're in a location where your smartphone does not have a clear reception from GPS satellites. In that case, your smartphone relies on other methods to determine your location which usually aren't as accurate, and it might look like you're at the library, when in reality, you're at the gay bar. Or, worse, the other way around.

If you know beforehand that you'll get bad location services at a place, you might want to "conquer" that place before you enter the building.

Do I need an internet connection to play this game?

The short answer. Yes.

The long answer: well, you need an internet connection because the game needs to contact the servers when you search for places. When you are trying to "conquer" a place, those data need to be stored on the servers as well. So yes.

Why am I not shown in the rankings?

You need to set a nickname in order to be shown in the rankings. Otherwise, we are unable to determine which player is which.

Why can't I add points to a place?

You need a protected account to be able to add points to a place.

Another requirement is that you need to have at least 10 points.

How can I challenge other players to visit a place?

In order to challenge another player you need to connect with that player.

You can connect to another player by scanning their QR-code or letting them scan yours. The other player has to approve the connection, too.
