We present Game of TUK, a gamified mobile app to increase physical activity among students at TU Kaiserslautern. The scale of our project with almost 2,000 players over the course of four weeks is unique for a project in a university context. We present feedback we received and share our insights. Our results show that location-based activities in particular were very popular. In contrast, mini-games included in the app did not contribute as much to user activity as expected.
