What our customers say about our online events:

It was a fabulous experience and immense fun! Highly recommendable!!

Engaging, witty and draws you in! Excellent and interactive production

Everyone involved made such a great effort. The challenge was fun and exciting and very much needed as a distraction in the current situation. Many thanks and congrats to the team for putting on a great experience.

This was a great self-paced mystery with an interesting story line. Complex enough to keep you thinking but not impossible to give us hope. It was entertaining to watch the characters live during the interrogation!

What a welcome addition to our long lockdown evenings. Thank you for getting our brains working and our suspicious minds racing.

great fun and linked us as a family over the miles having fun when we couldn't visit.

Q: Do I have to play at a particular time each day?

No, if you register to take part, you will receive an email each day containing new clues and video footage. You can choose to view and discuss the materials sent at anytime convenient to you.

As part of the production we will be hosting live suspect interrogation sessions (via Zoom video conferencing). We hope you will join us and ask your questions, however for anyone who is not able to attend, or would prefer not to, a video of the sessions will be made available afterwards, so you will not miss a thing. By taking part in the live interrogation session you are giving your agreement to being recorded and having the session placed as an unlisted YouTube video for the period of one week.

Q: Do I need to know about golf?

A: No, not at all, no knowledge or interest in golf is needed.
