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?

We played Murderous Scallywag. Very easily printable and QR code clues were helpful. It was a fun hour but quite difficult and there didn't seem a logical path to the answers (hence we needed all the clues)! Great little game for Escape Room fans.
We love doing escape rooms - the one in actual rooms and the ones you can do at home - this is a great idea, having the game printable so you can grab it whenever you're in the mood. I have given this a 4 star rating, because some of it was very obscure. We're used to doing this type of puzzle, thinking outside the box or trying to figure stuff out from a different angle, but some of the things in here were so left field there would have been no way to figure it out without the clues to guide us. We like to not use cues, and usually we manage to win without them, so this one was a tiny bit frustrating. For example, the way to get to the end winning combination wasn't explained very well, but once we did look at the hint, it was enough for us to get the order and win the game!
Was good fun, and learnt about how to be a team with my partner. I should have printed in colour single sided to make things easier. We enjoyed it but my dyslexia slowed me down. I do recommend.
Good fun on a cold wet rainy afternoon. It took a bit of time to get used to how to work out the clues but once we got going we did enjoy it. A bit more advice at the start would have been helpful but it didn't stop us escaping in the nick of time!
I wanted this for my partner. It's well laid out, easy to use files and clearly named. Make the process easy to get and organise without accidently reading the answers so I can join in! Love the logo as it's not just 'hey look at our gordy design' its actually puzzle related and makes it look smart while inspiring the puzzle juices.
I think the only way this could get better is a printable envelope for printing with the design on also to tie it all together!
The game it's self looks great and I can't wait to play!
