There's been a murder at Chapel Gate Manor and it's down to you to solve the case. The date is 1921 and you're an 18-year-old Sherlock Holmes embarking on a maiden investigation. Working alongside your esteemed colleagues, you will need to make your way around the manor in order to find clues, meet suspects and inspect each room whilst completing tasks along the way. This hosted murder mystery experience is designed to encourage teamwork, communication and boost morale with a range of different puzzles to suit all skill sets and aptitudes. Elementary?

How it works

Players join the call and are greeted by our experienced, professional host. Our hosts explain the format, the storyline, dos and don’ts. Their comedic style ensures everyone’s laughing, engaged and excited for the game ahead. All players are then split into teams via a Breakout Room. Once briefed and ready to go the Games Master will provide access to Chapel Gate Manor. This via a secure browser (not an app, so there’s nothing to download). Teams work through a range of different puzzles - visual, logic, mathematical - covering every skill set. Once every team concludes their mission, it’s time to head back to the main lobby and reveal which team came in at the top spot.
