General Questions

It is a game that connects the virtual world with the real world. TAGs are placed at different locations around the world that anyone can scan, earning Stamps, Energy Points (EP), cash or prizes. There will be 4 types of TAGs (GeoTAGS, QR Codes, Beacons and NFC). Energy Points are used to place more TAGs where you want them, as well as battle for Stamps, and battle to take over or defend TAGs on the map.

TAGS placed in the real world have attached advertising or information that can be changed as needed. As players scan to receive Stamps, earn points, get to higher levels, or to play other games linked to the TAGs, they see an ad or information at the same time. THe owners of each TAG decide what appears. The more TAGs that players scan, the more valuable the TAG location is. Here are some examples of use case scenarios.

  • GeoTAGS placed in open air, near businesses that want to attract new customers.
  • QR Code TAGs or NFC TAGs used for loyalty inside businesses to attract repeat customers.
  • Bluetooth Beacon TAGs broadcasting a short distance from a business inside shopping malls, where geoTAGs are harder to locate.
  • Informational walks to guide people, taking them from point to point or just at random. The busier the location, the more valuable the TAGs are.

Different types of TAGs need different ways to scan:

  • GeoTAGs - walk within 20m and the app will ask if you want to capture it.
  • QR Codes - Use the T button at the base of the app to scan the QR code.
  • Beacons - Make sure your Bluetooth is switched on and within 20m you will be asked to capture it. These may also be moving if people are wearing them, and these wil not be marked on the map.
  • NFC - With an NFC enabled phone, touch the NFC TAG to capture it.
Each Level a player goes through contains an increasing number of Stamps to collect, with different themes. Each tme a player scans a TAG, a random Stamp is given for a Collection. In each Level, Stamps are valued at 1 to 10 Energy Points, so for exmaple Level 1 has 10 Stamps with points from 1 to 10, level 2 has 20 Stamps, with value of 1 to 10 points (2 of each Stamp have the same value) and so on, increasing by 10 Stamps for each Level. A 2 point Stamp is twice as hard to get as a 1 Point Stamp, a 3 point Stamp is twice as hard to get as a 2 point Stamp, and so on up to 10 point Stamp. If after scanning you get a Stamp you already own, it won't give you any points, but it will be stored so you can use it to fight other players for a Stamp you don't have. Once a player finishes each level, they also receive a bonus. Some TAGs have different collections created by their owners, for their own purposes (with no fighting for Stamps). For example, a coffee shop will have a 10 Stamp collection of its own, where a player receives a new Stamp each time and a reward for getting all 10 Stamps. Some will be similar to the TAG Collection in that each Stamp is harder to get than than others, so a 10 Stamp Collection might take a lot more than 10 Scans to complete.

Different types of TAGs need different ways to add them to the system. Each costs Energy Points to place and geoTAGs must be further than 50m from each other. FOR QR CODES, BEACONS and NFC, if you place one within 50m of another, it will be added to the system, but simply not appear on the map, but it can still be detected or scanned using the Tagwild app. For each TAG, players can optionally add a name, a photo of the location, advertising link and linked to a collection if you have created your own (if not it will be linked to default TAG Collection). If linked to Tagwild ads, TAG owners will receive 1 Energy Point every time it is scanned by a player. The busier a TAG is, the more you earn, either to place more, to attack or defend or to give to players as an extra bonus for scanning.

  • GeoTAGs - Stand where you want to place a GeoTAG, wait 30 seconds for your GPS to stabilise and then click the T icon on the app and enter the info to add. Optionally, you can add them on the Tagwar map via this site. Price is 100 TAG Energy Points per placement
  • QR Codes - Generate the QR codes you want to use, print them out, then use the T button to scan and place them. If the QR code is mobile, like inside a Taxi, then it will not appear on the map, but it will be still work when scanned by a player. Price is 500 Energy Points to activate a code.
  • Beacons - Switch on your beacon, and the app will detect and let you add to the system ready to be detected by players. Mobile Bluetooth beacons,like wristbands,can be added but will not appear on the map. Price is 500 Energy Points to activate a code.
  • NFC - With an NFC enabled phone, and the app open, touch the NFC TAG to bring up a dialog to place the TAG. Price is 500 Energy Points to connect an RFID.
Energy Points are earned by scanning TAGs in the wild. You will be able to see all TAGs within 1km radius of your location on the map, so you just have to get to one of them and scan it. You can filter what types of TAGs are available via the Filter icon on the bottom right of the red bar. If you capture a new Stamp, then you will get the points for that Stamp but if you already have it, it will be stored in the fightbank for later battles against other players. For that you will need Energy Points. Sometimes, a TAG creator might give extra points to attract you visit that TAG. If you are the creator of a TAG you will earn Energy Points when players scan them (if you don't have your own advertising linked to it). You will need Energy Points to place new TAGs, to fight other players for Stamps or to battle TAGs in Tagwar. If you need extra Energy Points, you can buy them.

TAGs that are visited often are valuable in the real world, becuase you can advertise or offer prizes on them. However, they are subject to attack and takeover by another player to control the advertising or information on it. To attack another TAG, you must own the closest TAG to it, which will become the attacker. Click on the TAG you wish to attack and from the info screen click the red ATTACK button. It will attack with 100 Points every 20 minutes, giving time for the owner of that TAG to defend by adding more points to it. If you are the owner of a TAG under attack, you will get a notification - to defend, click the green ADD button on the info screen for that TAG, and it will add 100 points, deducted from your balance. Each attack of 100 Points will reduce the defending TAG level by 50%, so for example if a TAG has 100 power level to start, it would require 2 attacks to take it over, providing the TAG owner does not defend it.
If you find yourself under attack, you can also counterattack with the defending TAG, to try and take over the TAG attacking you, with the same rules as above.

Race or Leisure Tracks can be created by choosing TAGs in different locations (your own or from others in the area), that can be scanned at random or one at a time in the order the Track creator sets. Offer prizes for fastest completions, or offer a way to explore and discover.

  • Shopping Mall marketing
  • GYM Runs
  • Treasure hunts
  • Tour Guides

Tagwild is available on both Android and iOS app stores.

Different types of TAGs can be used to promote your business in different ways. For example, geoTAGs can be placed near your business premises, or if you have an app or online business you will look for the most scanned TAGs. Each time a TAG is scanned to get Energy Points (EP) and Stamps, an advert or promotion appears to the Player, which can be of your own choosing. If you want to use a Bluetooth beacon on your premises, any time someone comes within 20m of it they will see your promotion or ad. If you want to use NFC or QR codes to give your own Loyalty Stamps (purchase required or not), then that is also an option. (Cost is 1 TEP per stamp given) Tagwild gives 1 TEP to Players who scan any TAG that is connected to a private Loyalty Collection, and you can also offer bonus points as an incentive to use them. Alternatively, if you want to advertise on TAGs that you don't own, the cost is 1 point per scan visit.

Each TAG scan by a user shows the screen for Stamp won, points, bonus points and possible prize. Half the screen is dedicated to an advert which can be placed by anyone. To place an advert, simply go to the Advertise link on the website, or on the left menu of the app and upload your ad graphic. It should be 360px wide by 300 tall. Specify the radius from a location so it will be limited to visits within that area, or choose the group you want to apply. Set the number of times one user will view your advert, and total number of views that will be shown. For each view by a player, you will be deducted 1 Energy Point.

Prizes can be added by anyone and is a good alternative to advertising, usually because when a player wins a prize they share it on social media for all their friends to see. You can set a prize to be won within a certain area, and within a group you create via the Groups Menu. For example you could create TAGs within your chain of shops and only allow players to win IF they visit your shops. Prizes cost 1000 TEP to add. Prizes can be as follows:

  • Coupon - redeemable at the retailer - when redeem button is pressed, the prize in the user prize list will disappear.
  • Promo Code - individual codes that can be used on websites to access services etc. THe user only sees the code once they press the redeem button.
  • Airtime Load - Give prizes in mobile airtime that be instantly redeemed on a users mobile phone. If you create prizes like this will need to top up your currency wallet in Tagcash.com for this to work.
  • Bonus Points - Tag Energy Points can be given as prizes, deducted from your balance when a user redeems the prize.

If you want to limit advertising or prizes that can be won, then create a group. When you create TAGs, Advertising or Prizes you can then set the group to use. Great for tradeshows, promotions or limiting the interactions to your own branches of shops etc.
