It's a portable murder mystery with escape room style challenges can be moved to any location (indoor or outdoors). Game Operators in character as Private Investigators bring you the game and interact with you during the game while you gather around the evidence and solve the murder. Or, solve a murder on a pirate ship with our newest portable game, Black Skull.
