Fancy spending a day out solving an incredible mystery, visiting interesting unseen locations and having a barrel of fun doing it!?
Piece together the trail, question real witnesses and solve ingenious puzzles.
Casefile: The Mystery of the Star-Eaters is a one-day event where you play as a ‘consulting detective’ for the local constabulary. 12 secret locations around the town centre, some usually off-limits to the public, will be taking part in the game.
Players will be able to collect their casefiles at any time in the morning from 10am-12pm and begin their adventure by following the threads of information - wherever they may take them.
The game will take approximately 2-3 hours to play with players free to complete it at any time until 4pm.
Although the game is designed for adults, a trail sheet will be provided for 4-8 year-olds that they can play alongside the main game.
Southend BID are proud to present this new live adventure game in partnership with Casebook Events.
The story so far...
Detective Inspector Ranney of the local constabulary has asked for your expertise with a difficult case. The disappearance of Professor Macclesbury, a university Professor who was researching hidden subterranean areas. The Professor was a well-connected man. With pressure coming down on the Inspector from the university and the local council and a pile of unsolved cases backlogged he’s brought you in to lend a hand. He’ll give you everything he’s got on the Professor in his case-file but the rest is up to you. Out of time and out of luck, he’s counting on you to help solve this mystery - but everything isn’t quite as it seems and a dark cloud of conspiracy hangs over the town. With twists and turns that include a thousand year-old legend and a mythical ancient treasure this is one adventure that you’ll never forget.
