Are you the best eavesdropper in town? Use high tech spy gear to listen in on secret conversations. Trade information, piece together the plot and be the first to deliver the correct message without being caught. Careful though, there’s some tricksy characters.

OK it is very simple 2 teams compete to capture the other teams flag. Simple except both teams are armed with water bombs and if you are hit you have to go to the nursing box. For 4 to 8 players bring your rain mac.

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. Are you up to the challenge? A relay game in which players have to play the role of detectives
on the hunt for a murderer......a very dangerous murderer. Each phonebox they encounter has a distinct character and role in an unfolding murder mystery story.

Somewhere in Cardiff the greatest party ever is taking place. Rumours of royals in attendance have meant the authorities have been employed to keep a top secret lid on things. You haven't been invited and you have no idea where it is, but you really want to go. You are going to have to Gate Crash.

But it's not as simple as just turning up. You'll need to solve riddles, jump through hoops, prove your allegiance, morph into something altogether, even travel through time into a tipsy-turvy world where everything is not what it seems. Don't be late.

Game designers
Our friends Doldrum from Manchester will be running Gate Crash.

Thanks to everyone who is making this happen. You can see the brochure http://www.chapter.org/24073.html and you can also buy tickets from CHAPTER
