Gothenburg: Murder Mystery City Exploration Game

10. Gothenburg: Murder Mystery City Exploration Game

ClueBreak is a big outdoor event that takes place centrally in your city and cities around the world. On your way around the inner city of Gothenburg you will visit many famous places like Saluhallen, Bältesspännareparken, Trädgårdsföreningen and also see many statues. First you download the app CLUEBREAK and with the code you recieve by e-mail you will login and start your adventure. You will search for witnesses, find clues, test your knowledge and solve the murder mystery. One ticket is valid for 1-6 people. You will receive an exclusive code and further information that you need to log in to our app and start the game. In the app, you will find a map with marked places and witnesses. Visit the witnesses and answer the questions and riddles to get their testimonials. The testimonials are in the form of films and contain information that will allow you to eliminate suspects and weapons. In the end, you will hopefully have the right solution to the murder mystery! THE CASE The game takes place in a fictional small town called Glenndale. A man named Carl Brown has been found murdered in his own home. Why did someone want to kill Carl? Who had the motive and opportunity? Your task is to find out who the guilty one is and which murder weapon was used. This is our first case and more will come. We estimate that it takes at least 2h to complete the assignment. It usually takes a longer time as you may want to watch the testimonials an extra time, stop for a cup of coffee, or go into a place so that the whole team keeps up. It is not the fastest team that wins, but the team with the most points! Is this suitable for children? Absolutely, the activity is fun to do together as a family but is not designed for children to manage on their own. We recommend an age from 12 years old and up if there is no accompanying adult. But remember that its all about a murder and all about it. You will have a fun day together!
