We played The Shadow Darkens and had alot of fun! The puzzles and the story of Jack Armstrong were cleverly intertwined. The game flowed nicely and kept us guessing. The staff were charming and I would recommend this game to new players and enthusiasts alike....More

We went as a group of four for a friend’s birthday. It was fun, well-organised and thé décor and set up are great. We all got into the spirit of it and it was fun -great for team-building too, I would imagine.

A Shadow Darkens was brilliant fun. It was tricky but we did it without clues and in the last 5 seconds! Great host and a very unique experience. Highly recommended.

We have two different rooms to choose from; a 1940s Private Detective mystery and a 1970s museum robbery.
