How it works

How do I visit cities? 

  1. You will start your journey from any of the two starting cities: Amritsar or Bengaluru. Once you launch the game for the very first time, after city selection, you will get a welcoming one-time gift which may be a combination of a city ticket and KM. 
  2. To visit any city within the game, you would need to collect both city ticket and kilometres (KM):
    1. A city ticket will allow you to travel to a specific city within the game -- the city ticket you collected will specify which city you will be able to visit. 
    2. KM enables you to travel between cities -- you can visit a city of your choice from the present city location if you have enough KM to reach the city. 
    3. The number of KM needed to visit one city from another city is different and generally based on the real distance between them. You will see a total number of KM needed to travel to a certain city in-game.
  3. You will receive a city photo upon reaching every city. 
  4. You will not be able to travel back to the same city unless there is a virtual event during the game. The total number of cities you can visit per day is limited but will not be less than 3 cities - you will see an in-game notification once you reach the current applicable limit.
