Who cannot be trusted – Inkwell Investigations

Inkwell Investigations is a game of murder mystery with puzzles to solve and friends betraying each other with many hidden agendas and secrets. The big question is who cannot be trusted in your group and who is the murderer?

Inkwell Investigations

Which character will you play?

After booking your game online with Inkwell Investigations you will receive a secret email from one of the Inkwell Family giving you instructions on where to go and what you will need for your investigation. Along with a list of characters which you can choose from. There are eight characters in total one being a gambler, party animal, Lady/Lord of the Manor, an adventurer, lecturer, priest, researcher and a doctor. So each can all decide beforehand who wants to be who. With all the characters being so different there was one to fit each of our personalities quite well. Plus If you like you could always dress up as your character to give the whole game an extra element of role play. However bear in mind this is an outdoor game set in a park so you might get a few funny looks from passers by. Continue reading

I have principals after all.  I was given an orange bandanna to wear. Continue reading

What happened to Lavinia? – Modern Fables

Arriving at South Bermondsey the first challenge was to find Modern Fables.  Hidden away behind the backstreets and dark poorly lit alleys of South London we all eventually found the warehouse in where Modern Fables resided.  By this point I was already a little scared and tensed out.

Before the adventure

Upon discovering Modern Fables and entering the warehouse I noticed at the end of the corridor was a projection screen showing old black and white very bizarre eccentric film clips. Here are a few which were shown. Continue reading
