HEADLINE GAME
BLOCK PARTY
A game that tests your speed, wits and cunning. You've been sent by the Big Boss, Bad-Ass Billy Ball-Breaker, to pick up a special shipment; you've got to smuggle as many packages as you can through Cardiff bay. But you've got competition; other gangs, bent coppers and a host of crooked characters want a cut too. You'll have to out-wit, out-run and doublecross them to get your way back to base. There are a lot of dirty dealers out there; you've got one hour to do the right thing…
Please note this game is played across multiple locations in Cardiff Bay.
