Need help with installing or playing the Agent 711: Revolutionary Spy Adventure app? Read the answers to the most frequently asked questions below.

Why do you need to track my location?

This app works like a scavenger hunt, using iBeacon technology which requires us to track your location on the Estate. You will need to approve all permissions requests in order to play the game. The iBeacons will not work otherwise, however the game can still be completed using the "Do It for Me" function.

We will not track your location for any reason outside of this game. You can disable the tracking configuration when the game is not in session, but it is unnecessary.

Stuck? Do It For Me.

If you can't get past a particular challenge in the game, you can proceed by pressing the menu button in the top left corner of your screen and selecting "Do It for Me".

Enable Bluetooth before you begin.

The game will also utilize your device's Bluetooth. If launch the app prior to turning on Bluetooth, you be required to restart the application if you are using an Android device.

How long does it take to complete the adventure?

The average game lasts 45 minutes.

Is there a minimum age for this app?

Recommended for ages 8 - 16, although all ages will enjoy the game.

Can multiple people use one downloaded app?

We recommend 1-3 players per device.

Do I need to have a working cell or WiFi connection?

There is free WiFi available at Mount Vernon, but it is not required to play this game. We recommend that you download the game in advance.

I think I'm in the right spot, but the app is not working.

You can proceed by clicking the menu button in the top left and selecting "Do It For Me". For further troubleshooting, check your bluetooth and location sharing preferences as described above on this page.
