The Murderous Scallywag
The year is 1902. The city is awash with villainous gangs, pickpockets and thieves. All very small fry, as there is only one big fish you are after.
You and your team of detectives have finally arrested the notorious murderer David “Scallywag” Wallis. Word has it that he has committed around 20 murders.
With the hot glow of a bulb glaring in his eyes, sat in an interview room, you finally make Wallis spill the beans.
He tells you that all the evidence you need to pin the murders on him, is locked in a safe in a hidden location.
Can you find the location of the hidden safe and the code to open it before the murder escapes justice?

It definitely challenged us and took over 45 minutes to complete. We did need to use the additional help to start with, but once we got into the swing of the game, it was great. Also, great to have friends around and you can then be the guide to assist your friends.
A good mixture of puzzles which were easy to understand. We enjoyed solving them very much and would definitely like to do more.
The puzzles arrived in easy to print files and because of the clever qr code system for the clues you don't risk any spoilers while printing. I struggled to get started but once into the swing of things we really enjoyed the game. I wouldn't have managed to get started without a couple of clues. The clues themselves are actually puzzles but I won't give away anymore on that. The game was brilliant because if the people you are playing with have to leave you to it as happened to me you can actually play on your own. The fact that you can play solo is a great thing as sometimes you can find yourself without a game buddy when you fancy a game
Played the Murderous Scallywag with my teenage boys and husband. I would say it would be of medium difficulty. Clever selection of puzzles to work through and a good clue system if you need a hint. All in all a good option for a family night in.
My family and I had a great time playing The Murderous Scallywag last games night, even my 10 year old could get involved, which made him very happy. I would say this would be a great escape room for novices and intermittent players. This game is highly enjoyable and I would definitely recommend.
