The app 'Gotcha Leuven'

Read the official game rules and privacy policy here.

The first thing you need to do in the app, is subscribe to participate in the Gotcha game. Use your Facebook account to sign up and provide us some basic information about yourself, as well as at which faculty you study and in which year you are studying. Finally, make a clear picture of yourself.

This information is only visible for your hunters and gives them at least a clue in which direction they should start looking for you.

The last day you can sign up is Friday March 2nd, so don't wait too long!

CLAIM YOUR
WEAPON

FOR ONLY 2 EURO
AT SPECIFIC
LOCATIONS AND DATES

After signing up in the app, you need to complete your subscription by coming to one of our account activation events in person. The exact dates and locations will be announced in the activation screen of the app. Bring your smartphone with you, together with your student card and the subscription fee of 2 euro.

At these activation events, you will get your weapon. This is a small syringe that you must fill with water. This syringe filled with water is the only allowed weapon. All other ways of eliminating are not valid.


The specific locations and dates of the account activation events are:

Wednesday 21 February, 12h30-13h30
Alma 3

Thursday 22 February, 12h30-13h30
Alma Gasthuisberg | Alma 2

Monday 26 February, 18h-19h
Alma 2 | Alma 3

Wednesday 28 February, 12.30h-13.30h
Alma Gasthuisberg | UCLL

Friday 2 March, 12.30h-13.30h
Alma 2 | Alma 3

Once the game begins on Monday March 5th, the app will show your three initial targets to kill. Once you kill one of your targets, you'll get other targets until you are the last one alive.

PERFORM
RESEARCH

FIND YOUR TARGETS
BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE DOES

Together with the names and Facebook profiles of your targets, you can see their age, faculty, year of study, and their picture. Based on this information, you can start looking for your targets, who can be anywhere in Leuven.

Remember, you are not the only one looking for your targets, so be quick!

Pick up your weapon filled with water as fast as you can the moment you recognise one of your targets and shoot him or her down! Remember, only water is allowed and chasing is forbidden. Once the elimination has succeeded, you are required to take a picture together with your target in order to validate the elimination.

Always charge your phone before starting your hunt!

After an elimination, you will get another target to hunt down, until there are no survivors left or until your time is up. This can either happen when you are not active for several days, or when the game has simply ended on March 28th.

COME TO
GATHERINGS

AND GET A HIGHER CHANCE
TO MEET YOUR TARGETS

Gatherings are organised all over Leuven during the Gotcha game, between March 5th and March 28th. One gathering per week will be announced in advance, but other short-notice gatherings may only be announced minutes to hours before they happen.

Not only will you have a better chance of meeting your target higher at these gatherings, you will also have a higher chance of winning one of the prizes. You can also earn coins at these gatherings which you can use for several Power-Ups in the app.

With the coins you earn at gatherings, you can buy several Power-Ups in the app. For example, you will be able to trade one of your current targets for a new one in case you are stuck. Other Power-Ups will be rolled out during the game.

Participating is always more important than winning, but in this case winning can give you eternal fame!
