Transform into a detective from the Black Cat Detective Agency and save Christmas this weekend! In conjunction with *SCAPE’s Naughty Or Nice fair, @THEGUILD (you may know them more fondly as Neo Tokyo Project) brings us The Christmas Coup, a massive multiplayer escape experience with daily sessions at 12pm, 3pm and 6pm from 9-11 December.
In teams of 4, players get to explore *SCAPE for clues to solve the puzzles given to them as detectives (with your detective badge pinned snugly onto your shirt). These puzzles were developed in-house by @THEGUILD and are of comparable difficulty with other escape games available in the market. (Trust us, we tested them ourselves. Though, my editor will complain about my use of expletives if I write about how I really felt when I was playing the game.)
The three fastest teams to solve all the puzzles in each session will each win assorted shopping vouchers from *SCAPE worth more than $80.
POPCulture Online readers can purchase a ticket at the Peatix page (http://thechristmascoup.peatix.com) with the promotional code “TCCPCO” and unlock a special discount for tables of 4pax for each session ($40, instead of u.p. $50)
For those of us who are into craftwork, Repla will be also running workshops on how to create your very own Steampunk Ray Gun. Conceptualise, create, and customise an invention and pick up crafting tips from professional propmakers.
There will be two sessions – 6 pm on Friday, 9 December, and 2.30pm on Saturday, 10 December. Each session includes a crafting kit with parts and a pre-painted toy gun to modify. Tickets for the workshop can be purchased at http://scapenonsteampunk.peatix.com.
See you at *SCAPE this weekend!
