Real Life Scotland Yard

Hello and welcome to the online registration for this semester's Real Life Scotland Yard of the FSMPI! Even if the link ‘helfen.fs.tum’ might suggest something different, this is in fact not the registration for helpers but for the participation of the event itself.

On Sunday the 13th of October, you will be able to hunt Mr. X through Munich once again! Our Real Life Scotland Yard is a great opportunity for freshmen (and older semester as well) to get to know the city and its transportation network as well as the other students – all while having fun!

Basic principle

The players are divided into groups of 3-5 people. One team is the Mr. X-team. This team’s job is to drive through the city using public transportation and to regularly post their current position. The remaining teams are agents hunting them! They are allowed to communicate with each other – but Mr. X can read along…

We will have multiple games running at the same time. Every game has its own Mr. X and agents. For organizational reasons and so that nobody gets confused, the individual games have different colors.

Time and place

We meet on Sunday the 13th of October at 1:30 pm at the ‘Königsplatz’ in front of the ‘Staatliche Antikensammlung’ (here on Google Maps). Just follow the signs from the train station ‘Königsplatz’ (U2), we will be very hard to miss πŸ˜‰. If the weather is good, we’re going to meet afterwards around 6 pm at the beer garden ‘Hirschgarten’ 😊


And at last, the most important rule: Don’t stress over the details too much! If you end up staying at a bus station for 16 minutes or you do walk mistakenly between two stations per foot, then that’s okay as well for as long as everybody enjoys themselves πŸ˜‰

Further pieces of advice


Please only apply for one game. Which one you choose, is up to you since all games start at the same time and work the same way 😊



Here you can choose the group you like most.
