This was an entertaining, thought provoking experience. I would recommend this for a group of up to 3 people. Their space is small so more than 3 would detract from the experience. The clues provide good brain teasers and there are lots of them. Well...More

South Melbourne hosts the city’s oldest continuous
market, founded in 1867. Rows of neatly arranged
fruit, vegetables and flowers splash yellows, greens
and reds along the entire perimeter, where the whole
neighborhood gathers for Saturday feasts. Inside the
hall, shoppers hover over the mouth-watering displays
of delicatessens and specialty food shops. Further in,
a bazaar full of giftware, clothing, and kitchen

If you’re both into puzzles and games, then yes!! This would be an amazing date idea. If she’s a basic girl who doesn’t really enjoy much beyond drinking, movies, and dancing... then try something else.
