Sherlock's Secret Challenge - The puzzle solving game that shows you the city
It's a game that will make use of your brain and creativity, but its also a great way to explore the city as you're being forced to actively look around you.
The puzzles are solved using permanent features of the city and you'll work out your path as you go around from one clue to the next, unravelling the story and ultimately discovering the secret connection between Edinburgh and Sherlock Holmes. Itinerary
A game, a walk and a different way to learn some history.
Together with your team you will have to make good use of the kit provided to work through all the puzzles. Each will let you know where to go next, you will collect some interesting tidbits on some of the characters you’ll meet along the way before the grand finale. Logic, deduction and walking are big parts of this game.
The game will finish in the West End of Town. The duration varies greatly from group to group, most groups can finish in under 3h but for some groups its a lot more. You will be in touch with the host via WhatsApp so you need to bring a phone with internet access. Help will be offered throughout by the host but its up to you to ask. By joining you are committing to returning the kit and the end location.
We take groups of up to 7, we think its best with 2-5 players. Children 12 or under don't need to pay a ticket. The game is complex and we think its not a good fit for those ages but parents know best.
