June 24, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Southend Casefile: The Mystery of the Star-Eaters

Piece together the trail, question real witnesses and solve ingenious puzzles.

Southend BID are proud to present this new, one-day live adventure game in partnership with Casebook Events.

Casefile: The Mystery of the Star-Eaters is a live “Choose Your Own Adventure” game where you play as a consulting detective for the local constabulary. For one day only on Saturday 24th June, a dozen secret locations around Southend town centre, some usually off-limits to the public, will be revealed to players. You will collect your case files at any time in the morning and begin your adventure by following the threads of information – wherever they may take you…

The game will take approximately 2-3 hours to play with players free to complete it at any time from 10am 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.

So why not spend a day out in Southend-on-Sea solving the incredible mystery, visiting interesting unseen locations and having a barrel of fun doing it?

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.
