Welcome game

Welcome game for Sunday afternoon

Prague - a stage for Science, History, Culture, and Entertainment.

Dear participants, we hope you will enjoy the get-together game.

Basic information:

  • There are outdoor and indoor "chambers" (activity locations and rooms) located at the FUSENET PhD event venue (Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University, Břehová 7, Prague 1)  and in its vicinity.
  • Teams try to complete various problems in these chambers. Problems range from riddles and quizes to fascinating physics experiments and historic locations.
  • There are two treasures to be conquered. The first one is accessible during the game after the solving a riddle which leads to a password, the second one is available after the game to the groups with the highest score. Both treasures contain prizes for a lot of groups. First groups receive the most attractive prizes according to their choice.
  • After completing a chamber teams receive a clue to the first treasure password and points for the second treasure.


  • Teams are formed by 4 to 6 students. Teams should be formed by participants from different home institutions. You are welcome to create the teams in advance via e.g.  Facebook event.

  • Second chamber to complete is the Tesla chamber near the registration desk.
  • ... advancement to other chambers is a question of your choice and their availability.

Outdoor chambers (Map)

  • There is possibility /at your own risk/ of using 2 sets of bikes, a teambike and scooters to complete the outdoor chambers. Of course it is possible to access these chambers on foot as well. All sets are equipped with guides. The scooter set is dedicated to the Letna chamber.

Every selfie is awarded (at the Selfie indoor office) with one clue and points. It is not necessary to have a complete set of 13 selfies.

  • On the way from the Ibis hotel to the event venue Faculty in Břehová you can complete some outdoor selfies. Recommended paths:
    • (4 selfies) Lovely way is to go through the Prague center (~16 min), see the map by Jan Mlynář. Notice that on the 3rd page of this map, there are some comments and, importantly, several questions. We believe it is not too difficult to find the answers online in advance... having the right answers would help you in the game at the Astronomical tower chamber.

Then continue to the station Staroměstská (line A - green) and then it is 350 m walk to the PhD venue Faculty in Břehová. The whole ride from the airport could take about 45 minutes. A cloak room will be available at the venue to store your belongings during the Sunday programme.
