URBINGO© is an urban interactive and artistic game and an alternative guide through the Alba Carolina historical Citadel in Alba- Iulia, as a new approach towards the event of the Grand Union of 1918. T

The game was created as a celebration of the Grand Union of 1918 and wants to encourage the citizens of the city and the tourists as well to enjoy this special moment in a fun way.

The game invites its players to a fun journey, using a map and a set o playing cards. The map covers the game area and provides historical information and iconic elements of the Citadel.  The cards are an interactive photographic archive of the historical area, and are ranked from easy to very hard.

The game begins at the start point marked X, all the registered teams receive 5-6 cards and the game begins when all the teams have received the maps and the cards. The purpose of the game is to find as many places shown on the photo cards as possible within the time limit of 45 minutes. The objectives can be marked on the map or photographed from a similar angle, as shown on the card.

The winner is the team that gathered all the cards in the shortest time or has collected more cards than the competing teams. To have the result registered, the team must go to the exit point on the map.
