Phone Box Frenzy
There’s been a mobile-murder in Cardiff; it’s up to you to discover which phone box is responsible and bring them to justice. A relay game in which the players play the role of detectives on the hunt for a murderer. Each phonebox they encounter has a distinct character and role in an unfolding murder mystery story.

Gate Crash
Players follow a series of SMS and 'real world' physical clues to locate the event. It will be revealed that the exclusive nature of the party means players will need to adhere to a dress code, bring an appropriate gift etc in order to be let in. These challenges will be met on the journey and items/costumes made/acquired before arriving at the party.
