“Great group fun”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 via mobile

Like doing a mini version of the Amazing Race. Fun, competitive and you get to use your brain a little. Great for team building or to do with a group of friends.

“Not just for tourists-great way for locals to spend a morning”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

This was a Christmas present to get our family out of the house during the holidays.

2 adults and 2 pre teen boys spent 2.5 hours running through Gastown to solve the murder! (Quite a lot of backtracking too...until the boys learned to read all the way through our clues). We really did get to use a mirror, magnifying glass and tape measure!

Great fun, and we learned interesting facts about our home city. The clues were fun, inventive and had a lot of variety.

Sevan was prompt in meeting us at both the start and finish and explained the process in great detail (not that the kids listened). We'll be back for another mystery in the spring!

My girlfriend loved it. Excellent experience. She likes watching the Amazing Race on TV and this experience was like a real life race. I enjoyed this bc I got to show off my smarts solving the puzzles with her. Gentleman, let me just say, the night ended well.

“A smart and fun game in a nice area of Vancouver”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

I played Crime in Downtown with 3 friends of mine and we had so much fun ! Before starting the game someone welcomes you and gives you all the informations and tools you need. As soon as you begin to walk in gastown you really feel as a detective and you do want to find who is the murderer !!! The story is very smart, the different steps are creative and perfectly set up and you learn interesting stories about the city and the places you stop at. The level of difficulty is perfect, accessible to anyone. So don't hesitate, bring your family, friends and colleagues, you won't regret it !
