- DISCOVER LONDON THROUGH A SERIES OF CRYPTIC CLUES INSPIRED BY ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE’S SHERLOCK HOLMES NOVELS
Don’t miss the chance to explore London with Moriarty’s Game, created by cryptic city trail innovator HiddenCity. New tickets have been released and are available until 31 March 2016.This brand new, immersive game launched on 2 December 2015 and has been garnering an array of strong reviews, selling out on its weekend dates.
Time Out says, “Puzzle fans will love this cross-London game”
Radio Times calls it, “As an entertaining activity to do with your friends, it was perfect – but as an offbeat tour around London it was also a slam dunk.”
The Stage says, “Fascinating urban adventure game that invites participants to explore hidden corners of the city”
Moriarty’s Game is the 28th trail created by HiddenCity and is inspired by characters from Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel, The Final Problem, published in 1893. Players find themselves exploring exhibitions in a Mayfair Townhouse, celebrating contemporary architecture and drinking in Georgian public houses as they solve puzzles sent via text messages, in search of Moriarty’s hidden safe house.
‘Professor James Moriarty invites you to celebrate the finest minds of London by solving his cryptic challenge, which he has personally prepared. Your goal is to find his London safe house. Succeed and he will present you an offer you won’t refuse.’
Each clue directs participants to a hidden location within walking distance, and asks a specific question about the surroundings. If participants reply with the correct answer they receive the next clue.
In Moriarty’s Game, explorers interact with the real world. As they progress on their journey, participants find themselves studying botanical books, inspecting classical French paintings and delivering codewords to people they meet, as they uncover Moriarty’s true nature.
HiddenCity was created by two brothers who wanted to organise an alternative city experience for friends. HiddenCity now has trails operating in London, Manchester and Brighton.
