Who done it? – Aftermath

Aftermath is a escape game that comes to you, an immersive game that is great for small or large groups. You just choose the venue and they will come to you. Cost depends on the size of your group.  We chose to hold it in a pub in Clapham called the Railway Tavern to play the game in there space upstairs which was very roomy and had plenty of tables. It is a great size room for a  good size meeting of people. The pub is also just literally a few minutes away from Clapham North station.  It is a lovely pub and even has a few tables outside.

Dan Aykroyd visits London

Crystal Head

We waited eagerly in the line outside The Whisky Exchange in London so we could meet Dan. The rule was though to buy one of Dan Aykroyd and John Alexander crafted Crystal Head’s. Crystal Head is one of the world’s purest vodkas you can buy. The skull represents symbol of life, reflecting power and enlightenment. This is an award-winning white spirit of super natural purity. I bough the Aurora Crystal Head. It appealed to me as it was different with it’s diesel colours. So spectacular and very ghostly it just drew me in.  It also comes presented in a very stunning black box.  Continue reading
